Lot & Block Numbering
Idaho Code Title 50, Chapter 13, Section 4(c) requires that the plat shall show “all lots numbered consecutively in each block, and each block lettered or numbered, provided, however, in a platted cemetery, that each block, section, district or division and each burial lot shall be designated by number or letter or name”. Ada County does not recognize “lettered” blocks on plats.
Idaho Code Title 50, Chapter 13, Section 7 requires that “all plats of the same name must continue the block numbers of the plat previously filed”.
Condominiums are to some extent reviewed with this requirement, however they are not labeled as a “lot”, but as a “unit”. A “block” is not applicable to a condominium, however there may be a need for separating the units by using a “building” or “floor” designation.
A preliminary review of the Lot & Block numbering is done at the time a preliminary plat is submitted for the Street Name Evaluation. However, each phase must be numbered such that it is assumed that there are no other phases going to be recorded for it, and it must stand on its own.
· Is each Lot labeled with a number, and is it consecutive? This may include a “lot” for a private road, or a common lot.
· Is each Block labeled with a number, and is it consecutive?
· Are there any Common Lots within the right-of-way, and are they labeled with a Lot and Block number?
· If the plat is a continuation of a prior phase, do the Blocks agree with the recorded prior phase? Are there any duplicate Block numbers?
· If the plat is a continuation of a prior phase, do the Lots continue sequentially with the recorded prior phase? Are there any duplicate Lot numbers?
· Will the Lot and Block numbers be readable after scanning?
And a major headache that we may note, but might not always comment on . . .
· Will the numbering scheme used meet Idaho Code (read sequential and adjacent), if and when the next phase is submitted for review?
