14.02.01 Description. A "nonconforming lot of record" is a legally created lot, shown on a plat or survey map recorded in the office of the Kenton County Clerk, that complied with applicable lot area and lot width standards at the time of the lot's creation, but does not comply with applicable lot area and lot width standards of the zone in which it is now located.
14.02.02 Single Lots of Record. Any single nonconforming lot of record may be used for any use or building type allowed by the zone in which it is located, whether or not the subject lot complies with minimum lot area and/or lot width standards, provided that:
(A) The lot is located on an existing and improved public street;
(B) The lot is in separate ownership from all adjacent and contiguous parcels, thereby precluding acquisition of the additional land area needed to comply with lot size standards; and
(C) Development on the lot complies with setback, height and other applicable standards of this zoning ordinance (other than lot area and/or width).
14.02.03 Two or More Contiguous Lots of Record.
(A) If two or more lots of record or combinations of nonconforming lots of record or portions of lots of record with continuous frontage on the same street are in single ownership, the lots involved are to be considered an undivided parcel.
(B) No portion of such an undivided parcel that does not meet the applicable lot area and/or width standards of the zone in which it is located may be conveyed, transferred, subdivided, or used in any manner.
(C) Any division of the parcel must create lots that comply with minimum lot area and width standards of the zone in which it is located.
