Lot Split Evaluation
How Do I Apply?
As part of the Lot Split process within the unincorporated areas of Lorain County, Lorain Soil & Water Conservation District conducts an evaluation of the site conditions of a parcel by evaluating soil types and conditions, locating any floodplain on-site, and observing any potential wetlands.
To apply for a Lot Split, all of the following items must be submitted to Lorain Soil & Water Conservation District at the time of application:
A completed Lot Split Application Form.
Applicable fees (cash or check only made out to "Lorain County Commissioners") - based on split size.
Paper copy of the surveyor's map of the parcel to be split.
Exemptions from the Lot Split review may include:
Parcels being split larger than 20 acres.
Sales to an adjoining landowner with combination only.
For lots 10 acres or less: $20.00 per split.
For lots greater than 10 acres: $30.00 per split.
Fees are assessed based on the acreage of the lots being split from the original parcel. For example, if you are splitting three, 1-acre parcels from an original 30-acre parcel, the fee would be $20.00 per split, for a total of $60.00.
The completed application packet can be submitted in person or by mail to:
42110 Russia Road, Elyria, OH 44035
