How do I subdivide my property?

Subdivision is a very complicated tool used by developers and people whom want to sell off a piece of property to others, break off a piece for a family member or for various other reasons. Each zoning district has different requirements based on density, therefore this question can depend on numerous conditions on the specific property. 

For example, a park forest has the average density that is 5 acres, therefore you would need at least 10 acres to subdivide one parcel into two 5-acre parcels.
