ODESSA, Texas (AP) - Commissioners in Ector County are poised to vote on rules for new subdivisions that would require developers to build roads to newly built homes.

The Odessa American (https://bit.ly/1xIE0uX ) reported Sunday that county officials are set to vote on the policy Monday.

The county has been working on the subdivision policy for about a year. The move came about when one commissioner started to vote against any subdivision that did not have a paved road.

Poor road quality, lack of street addresses, and emergency vehicle access were problems without a subdivision order that could be remedied.

County Judge Susan Redford says the main changes would include requiring developers to put in paved roads and also to disclose water availability to potential home buyers.
