§ 62.103. Nonconforming lots  

Latest version.
  • In any district in which single-family dwellings are permitted, notwithstanding limitations imposed by other provisions of this code, a single-family dwelling and customary accessory buildings may be erected on any single lot of record at the effective date of adoption or amendment of this code. This provision shall apply even though such lot fails to meet the requirements for area or width, or both, that are applicable in the district; provided, that yard dimensions and other requirements not involving area or width, or both, of the lot shall conform to the regulations for the district in which such lot is located. Yard requirement variances may be obtained through approval of the board of zoning appeals.

    If three (3) or more lots or combinations of lots and portions of lots with continuous street frontage in single ownership are of record on the effective date of this code or amendments thereto, and if all or part of the lots do not meet the requirements for lot width and area as established by this code, the lands involved shall be considered to be an undivided parcel for the purpose of this code, and no portion of said parcel shall be used or occupied which does not meet lot width and area requirements established by this code, nor shall any division of the parcel be made which leaves remaining any lot with width or area below the requirements stated in this code.
