California Subdivision Map Act – Lot Merger vs Lot Line Adjustment
I??m looking over the CA Subdivision Map Act and want feedback and input. Do you consider a Lot Merger to be the same as a Lot Line Adjustment with regards to the ??Fewer Than 5? aspect of the Map Act? Since section 66451 aspect of Lot Mergers does not state specifically the number of parcels, do you feel it??s 4 or less?
66451.10. (b) This article shall provide the sole and exclusive authority for local agency initiated merger of contiguous parcels. On and after January 1, 1984, parcels may be merged by local agencies only in accordance with the authority and procedures prescribed by this article. This exclusive authority does not, however, abrogate or limit the authority of a local agency or a subdivider with respect to the following procedures within this division:
(1) Lot line adjustments.
(2) Amendment or correction of a final or parcel map.
(3) Reversions to acreage.
(5) Tentative, parcel, or final maps which create fewer parcels.
Thanks for your feedback.
