What does "re-platting" mean and do I do that?
Re-platting is the combining of two legal lots of record into one lot, eliminating any interior lot lines. The ordinance does not allow for the construction of any building (commercial or residential) over a lot line due to pre-determined setback requirements as outlined in the zoning ordinance. Any Louisiana licensed surveyor can prepare a new plat and submit the plat, application and fee ($150) to the MPC for approval. This fee is the MPC fee only and does not include any city, parish or surveyor fees. In most cases, this approval can be done administratively without the need for a public hearing. The approval process typically takes two to three weeks.
