The expedited review process allows a subdivider to go directly to final plat review after a Pre-application/concept meeting has been completed. Expedited subdivisions are still reviewed for compliance with local and state subdivision regulations and an SIA is required for them.
Please note also that right-of-way dedication may be required with subdivisions qualifying for expedited review.
