Subdivision is the act of dividing land into pieces that are easier to sell or otherwise develop, usually via

a plat. The former single piece as a whole is then known in the United States as a subdivision. If it is used for housing it is typically known as a housing subdivision or housing development, although some developers tend to call these areas communities. Subdivisions may also be for the purpose of commercial or industrial development, and the results vary from retail shopping malls with independently owned out parcels, to industrial parks.
THE TABLE below presents the planning and design standards for residential subdivision of socialized housing based on BP 220 and PD 957 .

The following design standards shall be considered minimum requirements: a. Curb and Gutter. Curb and gutter shall be installed within proposed subdivisions and on major thoroughfares and minor streets. When contiguous subdivisions are developed with curb and gutter, a proposed subdivision shall be designed with curb and gutter. b. Streets, Alleys and Access Easements. The design standards which shall apply to streets, alleys and access easements are as follows: 1. Right-of-way Widths. Minimum street right-of-way widths shall be shown on the major thoroughfare plan and shall be not less than the following: a. Major Thoroughfares 1. Controlled access - 100 ft. 2. Arterial Streets a. Primary - 90 ft. b. Secondary - 80 ft. b. Minor Streets 1. Local residential street - 60 ft. 2. Cul-de-sac - 50 ft. 3. Collector streets - 66 ft. 4. All residential streets located beyond the corporate limits of the city - 60 ft. c. Rural access streets 1. Local residential street - 60 ft. 2. Cul-de-sac - 60 ft. d. Access easements 1. Minimum right-of-way width - 30 ft. 4. Existing access easements shall provide a compacted crowned road base surface consisting of three inches of crush and run of 18 ft. in width. 3. Collector streets - 45 ft. back to back of curb. Three inches of asphalt on six-inch stone base. 24-inch concrete curb and gutter.

Each rural access street or cul-de-sac shall have a minimum six-foot wide shoulder with a maximum grade of 1:10. Each rural access street or cul-de-sac cross-section shall be provided with drainage swales with maximum grades of 1:5 beginning from the outer edge of the shoulder to the centerline of the drainage swale.

d. In areas where topography requires modifications to accommodate adequate drainage or street cross-sections, the Engineering Department may waive or modify requirements of shoulder and/or drainage grades. e. After preliminary approval of the subdivision plat and before construction, the plan, profile and proposed cross-sections for proper street and storm drainage system design shall be submitted to the Engineering Department for approval. Proposed cross-sections shall be drawn at 50-ft. stations along the center line of the proposed streets. Additional information and/or calculations may be required for storm drainage and street improvement within the subdivision. Proposed plans, profiles and cross-sections shall be designed for a minimum ten-year frequency storm. Existing drainage ways within the subdivision shall be designed to accommodate a minimum 25-year frequency storm. f. Storm sewer piping and appurtenances shall be designed and installed in a manner and location approved by the Engineering Department. 4. Horizontal curves. Where a centerline deflection angle of more than 10 occurs, a circular curve shall be introduced having a center line radius of not less than the following: a. Major thoroughfares - as required by design speed* b. Collector streets - 350 ft. c. Minor streets - 250 ft. d. Cul-de-sacs - as required by design speed* Circular curves may be combined to produce a compound curve provided the difference between the two branches of the curve does not exceed 5. 5. Vertical Curves. All vertical curves shall have such length as necessary to provide safe sight distance and shall be approved by the City Engineer. A minimum sight distance of 200 feet shall be maintained. 6. Tangents. A tangent of at least 100 ft. in length shall be provided between curves on all streets. 7. Intersections.

Property lines at street intersections shall be rounded with a minimum radius of 20 ft. d. Street jobs with center line offsets of less than 150 ft. shall be prohibited. 8. Cul-de-sac. Permanent dead-end streets shall not exceed 800 ft. in length and shall be provided with a turnaround having a roadway diameter of at least 80 ft. and a rightof-way diameter of at least 100 ft. Temporary dead-end streets shall be provided with a turnaround having a radius of at least one-half the right-of-way of the street. Rural cul-de-sac access streets shall have a maximum length of 800 feet and shall be provided with turnarounds with a minimum right-of-way diameter of 120 ft. and a minimum paving diameter of 80 ft. c.
