The subdivision review process is intended to address the provision of basic public services and facilities, and ensure that a subdivision has adequate legal and physical access (streets, roads, or easements), police and fire protection, water and sewage disposal facilities, and solid waste disposal. The review process also is designed to ensure that if a subdivision causes negative impacts to the area where it is proposed that those impacts are mitigated before the subdivision is approved. As such, all subdivision proposals must undergo review as denoted in (76-3-608 (3), MCA).
The Yellowstone County Board of Planning, through the City-County Planning Division, administers the subdivision regulations for both the City of Billings and Yellowstone County.
