When to apply for a boundary line adjustment (BLA)?
Whenever you want to move the boundary line between your property and adjacent property owned by someone else, you must receive approval from the Planning Board for a Boundary Line Adjustment. (Please note: If you want to combine adjacent properties that you already own, see the instructions for “Application for Same Owner(s) to Combine Two or More Tax Parcels”).
