4. 5-302- Request for An Exception

To be approved as an exception for relocation of common boundary lines, the survey plat must bear signatures of all landowners whose parcels are changed by the boundary line relocation. The survey plat must show that the exception was used only to change the location of a boundary line dividing two parcels, and must clearly distinguish the prior boundary location (shown for example, by a dashed or broken line) from the new boundary (shown, for example, by a solid line). Grantee of land transferred under this subsection must take title to the land transferred under the same name as they hold title to their land adjoining said property. No separate or new parcel may be created hereunder.”
