Other Planning Services

Other planning services provided by BDS Planning and Zoning Staff include lot confirmations, zoning confirmation letters and property line adjustments.

Generally, these services are done by Planning and Zoning staff and may be completed within a shorter processing time than land use reviews. Generally, they are administrative reviews that involve no public notification or comment periods.

Property Line Adjustments

A property line adjustment (PLA) is the relocation of a common property line between two abutting properties. A property line adjustment does not create a new lot line.

Zoning Confirmation Letters/Land Use Compatibility Statements

The purpose of a zoning confirmation letter is to verify in writing the allowed uses, development standards and regulations applicable to a specific site.

Lot Confirmations

A lot confirmation verifies one or more lots or lots of record have legal status as a property that is eligible for development under the zoning code.

Zoning Information Line

When you call the Zoning Information Line, please have the property address or tax account number ready.
