Abstract: The principal purpose of the Delaware County Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance (SALDO) is to protect the health, safety and welfare of residents of the County. This document establishes reasonable standards of design and procedures for the orderly layout and development of land. The current 2016 County Ordinance is the governing subdivision and land development document for 21 of the County’s 49 municipalities. The August 3, 2016 adoption of this document replaced the previous 1981 SALDO.
