Subdivision & Land Development

The City regulates subdivision and land developments through the Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance (SALDO). The City's SALDO was adopted in 1979 and has been amended periodically. Most minor subdivisions (the creation of 4 new lots or less) can be approved at the staff level, while major subdivisions and land developments require the review and approval of the Allentown City Planning Commission at a public meeting. Application forms are available by clicking here. For assistance please call 610.437.7630 ext 2859.
