As authorized under the provisions of Section 66412(d) of the Subdivision Map Act, a lot line adjustment may be approved between four or fewer existing adjoining parcels, where the land taken from one parcel is added to an adjoining parcel, and where a greater number of parcels than originally existed are not thereby created. (Ord. 700 § 2 (Exh. 1), 2012)

The city engineer shall approve a lot line adjustment if the following findings are made:

B. The lot line adjustment, in and of itself, will not result in the need for additional improvements or facilities;

C. No additional parcels will result from the lot line adjustment, and any land taken from one parcel will be added to an adjacent parcel;

D. The proposed adjustment will result in a generally continuous and straight property line extending the full length of that property’s dimension; and
