Subdivision Dispute Brewing in Elmore County

County Commision Chairman Joe Faulk says development laws protect, not penalize, landowners. County Commision Chairman Joe Faulk says development laws protect, not penalize, landowners.

A dispute is brewing in Elmore County over what constitutes a legal subdivision.

Hundreds of landowners in the county, who are planning their own subdivision, say they don't feel they should be under the same laws as 'professional' developers.

Those landowners say the county commission stepped over the line when right-of-way space in the area was taken from them.

However, county commissioners say they're simply following the law which is supposed to protect landowners, not penalize them.

Elmore County Commission Chairman Joe Faulk says, "For the last thirty years, Elmore County has been one of the fastest growing counties in the state, and because of that, there's a need to insure quality development in the county."

The County's plans are not set in stone as of yet. Commissioners will hold a public meeting on November 5th for residents to discuss the subdivision guidelines.
