lot subdivisions (merging and splitting) -- absent any zoning variance relief -- does not involve Zoning or ANC input

Regarding the new 8-unit condominium project at 151-155 V Street NW – it has been mentioned that the two adjacent lots were being combined into a single lot.  Note that the lot merging in question does not require a zoning variance.

A neighbor asked this question:  ``Does the process of combining or splitting lots require Zoning input?``
This question  was posed to the DC Office of Zoning.

Dear Mr. Roberts,

Property subdivisions are routinely handled by the Office of the Surveyor.  If a subdivision requires variance relief (for example: the proposed lot(s) do not meet the minimum size requirements) from the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) then the ANC would be notified about the hearing.  Please call me on (202) 727-2806, if you have any questions about the BZA process.
