Subdivision & Land Development Ordinances (SALDO)
In Wayne County 25 of the 28 municipalities have adopted their own Subdivision and Land Development Ordinances (SALDO). Wayne County also has adopted a SALDO. The subdivision and development of land in those municipalities that have adopted their own SALDO is governed by the locally adopted municipal ordinance. In those municipalities (Dyberry and South Canaan Township and Prompton Borough) that have not chosen to adopt their own SALDO, the Wayne County SALDO is in effect. The illustration depicts the three municipalities (shaded green) that are under the jurisdiction of the Wayne County SALDO.
The Wayne County Commissioners have designated the Wayne County Planning Commission and the Wayne County Planning Department as the approving bodies for subdivision and land developments under this ordinance.
