Small-lot residential subdivisions can help communities make more efficient use of infill parcels. These subdivisions can also expand local housing choices, often increasing opportunities for home ownership. However, many contemporary zoning codes do not allow lots smaller than 5,000 square feet.

This edition of PAS QuickNotes explains two distinct scenarios where cities and counties might consider making zoning changes to facilitate small-lot subdivisions and summarizes how site and building design can help residential development on small lots fit in with its surroundings.
