LOT LINE ADJUSTMENTS

Lot Line Adjustment Filing Procedures

Zoning Code: Platting and Replatting City - County

Lot Line Adjustment Filing Procedures

The Zoning Code allows for changes to a lot line where the adjoining lots are platted, have a common lot line and common zoning. Persons desiring to adjust a line on their property to add to their lot or convey part of their lot to a neighbor should first contact the APC staff to discuss the line adjustment. In all districts adjoining platted lots, those lots having a common lot line and common zoning may adjust their common lot lines without replatting; provided, that the newly created sites meet all requirements of the zoning code for the district and create no additional lot(s). After discussing the line adjustment with the APC staff, a copy of the recorded deed describing the new lots must be filed with the Plan Commission before the adjustment is considered to be approved.

Parcelization Filing Procedures, and Application

Subdivision Code: City - County

Parcelization Filing Procedures, and Checklist

Persons desiring to divide a property into smaller parcels or split an area from a larger parcel must submit a subdivision plat for review, unless the requirements for parcelization can be met. To comply with these requirements, the original parcel must be at least 10 acres, and each proposed lot, including the remainder of the parent parcel, must be at least 5 acres. Residential properties must conform to the minimum lot width in the Zoning Code (Table A) and have frontage on an existing public or private road (e.g. in Agricultural and R-1 districts, parcels must have at least 60 feet of frontage). For non-residential uses, there is no requirement for minimum lot width or road frontage.
