I don't know if the public has ANY IDEA of the cost to subdivide acreage. I do. One can easily spend 10k or more just to split a 5 ac piece two ways.You just can't draw a line on a map, those days a long gone. The County has a number of requirements, and other agencies like Fish & Game, Water Resources, etc. for instance; Are there any evidences of tortoises or burrowing owls on the property. If so, some plan to mitigate their habitats or restrict the possible use of the parcel. That means one has to hire a licensed company to walk the land and submit a written report. I was lucky to find someone up at Lake Arrowhead for a mere $1,00.00 to do the study. It won't be long before a survey to find out if there are any three legged frogs are making their home on ones land. This kind of BS goes on and on, and so does the price to comply.
