The pre-application conference stage of subdivision planning comprises an investigatory period which precedes actual preparation of preliminary plans by the subdivider.

In carrying out the purposes of the pre-application stage, the subdivider and the Department shall be responsible for the following actions. (Ord. No. G-5590, § 1, 2011)
