Vacant Continuous Nonconforming Lots
Here is a case that was discussed before, but here is a slight twist.
Two vacant, nonconforming lots. Both are independent lots of record and have been independent since before the city was incorporated or the zoning code was adopted. Both are continuous, and both owned by the same person, and were bought at different points in time. The property owners live on the other side of the street, and do not own any other lots around them. Both have sewer leads. They are nonconforming in area and width. The are taxed as separate lots. They were not required to be combined into a single lot, and for all purposes, are two legally separate lots.
If they were not continuous, there would be no question that they are buildable. The property owners want to sell them as separate buildable lots.
Together, they are would be a conforming lot, and have some left over.
What would you do?
