25.5.A.1 Lots of Record Held in Common Ownership

If two (2) or more lots with contiguous frontage are held in common ownership that have historically been used as a single development site, and one (1) or more of the lots does not meet the requirements for lot width or lot area as established by this Ordinance, the land shall be considered to be a single undivided parcel for the purposes of this Ordinance. No portion of the parcel may be used, transferred, or conveyed that does not meet the lot width and lot area requirements established by this Ordinance. No division of the parcel may be made which leaves the remaining lot(s) with lot width, lot area, or lot depth below the requirements of this Ordinance without the authorization of the Board of Zoning Adjustments. No building permit may be issued for the use of any lot or portion of a lot transferred or conveyed in violation of this section.
