The community development director shall approve an application for a boundary line adjustment if it is determined that:

A. No additional lot, tract, parcel, site or division will be created by the proposed adjustment;

B. No lot is modified which contains insufficient area and dimensions to meet the minimum requirements of the zone in which the affected lots are situated. Where a lot is located within a zone that does not provide for a minimum area or dimension, no lot or tract is modified which contains insufficient area for a building site.

For the purposes of this chapter, a “building site” means the lot or property contains sufficient area and dimension to accommodate a development capable of housing the type of uses established within Chapter 12.06 BMC for the underlying zoning classification;

C. No lot is modified which does not have adequate drainage, water supply and sanitary sewage disposal, and access for vehicles, utilities and fire protection, and no existing easement or tract in favor of the public is rendered impractical to serve its purpose;

D. The boundary line adjustment is consistent with the applicable provisions of the city’s zoning code;

E. No lot is modified which is inconsistent with an applicable requirement or condition of a previous land use action, subdivision, or short subdivision;

F. No lot, use, or structure is made nonconforming or more nonconforming than that which existed at the time of application; and

G. No lot is modified in a manner that circumvents a zoning regulation which would otherwise be applicable to any lot affected by the boundary line adjustment. (Ord. 2008 § 1, 2009; Ord. 1815 § 1, 2000; Ord. 1632 § 1, 1996).
