to ralph, Ned, me

Ok I got a call back from Sean Kitts with the Property Assessor's office and he also told me they could not combine it because of the county/city thing? By platting it, it will create a stand a lone lot that is non-forming in size of the required one acre. Choices would be to request a BZA variance on it or go to the Planning Commission and ask for a variance to leave the remaining portion of that parcel without the benefit of a survey. Both options are probably more than your client would pay in taxes by just incorporating it into the rest of the lot?

Please advise what you will be doing?

I know and I'm working on it. I wasn't happy with David's answer because I see property that is City and County all the time and they say they can't do it. I met with Max in Knox County Codes and he says they need to combine into one parcel. By platting it separate, it creates a non-conforming lot so I'm in a quandry but will not give up.

We still need your infinite wisdom about how to handle this without incorporating the piece of the Bell property into our survey. City vs County, stupid tax parcel numbers, etc. Thanks.
