Zoning - Land Division & Property Splits

Welcome > Departments > Planning and Zoning > Zoning - Land Division & Property Splits


Navajo County and all property located within incorporated and unincorporated areas requires that zoning is verified for all property lot splits and combinations. Checking the zoning and minimum allowable size for your parcel is crucial so that the property stay within conformance of the respective zoning category and continue to be eligible for a building permit. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions for more information. 

*Failure to ensure that zoning and building requirements are met may result in a non-conforming lot and a denied building permit.*
