Subdivision plats

Before you submit...

Prior to submittal of a subdivision plat application, staff strongly recommends that you schedule a Pre-Application Development Review Committee meeting to discuss your project. 

  1. Tentative Plat
  2. Final Plat

Tentative Plats are reviewed and approved administratively. A Tentative Plat demonstrates the feasibility of a proposed subdivision. It does not create legal lot lines. 

Tentative Plat submittals are to be made online via Sahuarita's e-permitting website.

Tentative Plat Process and Submittal Checklist

Subdivision Policy Guidelines (PDF) offers direction on plat expirations, re-plats, and plat amendments.

Recreation Area Plan

Residential Tentative Plats require submittal of a Recreation Area Plan (RAP). For RAP requirements, please see the Parks & Recreation Area Design Standards Manual (PDF). Please contact the Parks and Recreation Department with any questions related to RAP requirements.

Landscape Plans

A Landscape Plan is recommended to be submitted with your Tentative Plat. Approval of a Landscape Plan will be required prior to approval of a Final Plat. You do not need a separate application form for the Landscape Plan.
