To reconfigure a lot, apply for a Lot Line Deviation. A Lot Line Deviation Sufficiency Submittal Checklist (includes application form) will guide the applicant through the process. The purpose and intent of a lot line deviation/adjustment is:
- To reconfigure two or more lots of record or legally created lots each of which currently meet all other sections of the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) and all requirements of the Lake County Comprehensive Plan; or To reconfigure two or more lots of record or legally created lots in order to meet all other sections of the LDRs and all requirements of the Lake County Comprehensive Plan or to make each lot more compatible to the LDRs and the Lake County Comprehensive Plan; or
- To reconfigure two lots or more of record, either one or all of which are non-conforming lots of record due to setbacks, in order to make them more conforming lots of record.
The standards for a lot line deviation/adjustment are:
- For lots in either a platted subdivision or described by a metes and bounds legal description, provided that each parcel or lot is currently recognized as a Lot of Record or legally created lot approved by Lake County. Access to each lot may not be altered as to the current access for each lot (i.e., an easement may not be added or extended). Only abutting Lots of Record may be reconfigured. A lot line adjustment shall not be approved within a platted subdivision when such lot line adjustment changes the character of the subdivision, or where the lot line adjustment increases the density, beyond the general nature of the subdivision.
- The creation of a Flag Lot is prohibited.
