    Flag lots

    Hi everyone,
    Can someone give me some guidelines how your city governs the creation of flag lots? what is required to create a flag lot?

    We have a depth to width 'guideline' of 1 : 2.5 however since it isn't a requirement but a 'guideline' currently we don't enforce it. It is also restrictive because we have some narrow and deep parcels that aren't flags such as; 200 feet wide and 800 feet deep. 1 : 4 in that case but we allow it.

    We prohibit flag lots in our urban and suburban service area. Where I've worked in the past, we required a minimum 20-foot wide corridor with a maximum depth of 100-feet.

    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    You may want to restrict the number of units per flag as well.

    We recently amended our code to elimate creation of any new flag lots. It has been interesting!
