Subdivision Regulations

The Hancock County Commissioners adopted Subdivision Regulations on June 30, 1961 pursuant to Chapter 711 of the Ohio Revised Code.  The purposes of these regulations are:

The Hancock Regional Planning Commission (HRPC) was appointed as the body charged with enforcing these regulations on a daily basis.

Minor subdivisions of land are reviewed and approved by HRPC staff.  Any major platted subdivision is first reviewed by the County Subdivision Review Committee and final approval is given by the full board of HRPC.

A request for variance from the Regulations is also reviewed by the County Subdivision Review Committee and then sent to the full Board of HRPC.
