16.10.010 Applicability.

When five or more parcels of land, the smallest of which is at least 20 acres in size (or one thirty-second of a section if the land is capable of description as a fraction of a section of land), are proposed to be created from a parent parcel, the provisions of this chapter shall apply. The large lot segregation needs to be approved prior to the sale of individual parcels. Boundary line adjustments must not be used in conjunction with large lot segregations in order to adjust lots less than 20 acres in area or one thirty-second of a section of land, without the filing of a short plat, long plat or planned development. (Ord. 2007-6 § 2, 2007; Ord. 95-7 § 1, 1995).

16.10.020 Application and contents.

Application for a large lot segregation shall be submitted to the office of planning and development on an application form, including the following information:

A. A legal description and accompanying map drawn to reflect the legal description of both the existing parcel(s) and the proposed segregations;

B. Proof of compliance with access requirements, per OCC 16.04.090;

C. Addresses for each parcel created;

D. Names of newly created access roads (both public and private). (Ord. 95-7 § 1, 1995).

16.10.030 Process.

The large lot segregation review process is as follows:

A. A completed application is filed with the office of planning and development, pursuant to OCC 16.10.020.

B. The planning office reviews the application for compliance with OCC 16.10.020. If approved, planning staff forwards a copy of the complete application to the assessor’s office for their review. After review by the treasurer’s office the planning office records the application with the auditor’s office.

C. The assessor’s office reviews the legal description and map for accuracy. The assessor’s office creates tax parcels, assigns tax parcel numbers, and draws the lot lines on the maps. (Ord. 95-7 § 1, 1995).
