[Ord. No. 339, passed 7-25-1977]
This chapter shall govern the partitioning or dividing of lots, outlots or other parcels of land in a recorded plat, subject to provisions of Section 263 of the Subdivision Act.
[Ord. No. 339, passed 7-25-1977]
Land may be detached from one such lot, outlot or parcel and added to another lot, outlot or parcel upon application to and approval by the Planning Commission. The fact of such a division shall be noted upon the City assessment roll, and thereafter the enlarged lot, outlot or parcel shall be considered to be a single lot, outlot or parcel for tax assessment and all other purposes. No such division shall be permitted unless the remainder of the lot, outlot or parcel from which the part was taken meets the minimum requirements of the City Zoning Code, including requirements as to width, area and open spaces.
[Ord. No. 339, passed 7-25-1977]
A lot, outlot or parcel may be divided into not more than two new lots, outlots or parcels, upon application to and approval by the Planning Commission. The fact of such a division shall be noted upon the City assessment roll, and thereafter each separate parcel shall be considered to be a single lot, outlot or parcel for tax assessment and all other purposes. No such division shall be permitted unless each separate parcel meets the minimum requirements of the City Zoning Code, including requirements as to width, area and open spaces. In those cases where water, sewer or other services have been installed within the plat by special assessment, and the lot, outlot or parcel proposed to be divided has been assessed therefor, no division shall be permitted unless the applicant agrees, in writing, to pay into the special assessment district an additional amount, to be determined by the City Manager or the City Clerk/Assessor, representing the increased share of the cost of the special assessment district which should be borne by said lot, outlot or parcel as a result of the increased benefit received by said lot, outlot or parcel when divided into two separate lots, outlots or parcels.
[Ord. No. 339, passed 7-25-1977]
A lot, outlot or parcel may be divided into more than two, but not more than four, separate lots, outlots or parcels upon application to and approval by the Planning Commission. A survey showing such proposed divisions, prepared by a registered civil engineer or land surveyor and including a proper legal description of each separate lot, outlot or parcel proposed, shall be submitted with the application. The application shall be filed with the City Clerk/Assessor at least 12 days prior to the regular Commission meeting at which the applicant is scheduled to appear. Should the Commission approve the requested division, it shall notify the City Clerk/Assessor, and the fact of such a division shall be noted upon the City assessment roll. Thereafter, the divided portions of the lot, outlot or parcel shall be considered to be separate lots, outlots or parcels for tax assessment and all other purposes.
No such division shall be permitted unless each of the parts into which such lot, outlot or parcel is to be divided meets the minimum requirements of the Zoning Code, including requirements as to width, area and open spaces. In those cases where water, sewer or other services have been installed within the plat by special assessment, and the lot proposed to be divided has been assessed therefor, no division shall be permitted unless the applicant agrees, in writing, to pay into the special assessment district an additional amount, to be determined by the Clerk/Assessor, representing the increased share of the cost of the special assessment district which should be borne by said divided lot, outlot or parcel due to increased benefits received by such lot, outlot or parcel when divided into three or four such lots, outlots or parcels.
[Ord. No. 339, passed 7-25-1977]
Any person aggrieved by any action of the City Clerk/Assessor or the Planning Commission hereunder shall be entitled to a hearing before Council. Such hearing shall be requested in writing and shall be held at the next regular meeting of Council occurring not less than 10 days after the filing of the request. Council may, after such hearing, modify or reverse any decision of the City Clerk/Assessor or the Commission.
