|Yes, you may purchase more than one parcel and build a larger home. If you click here to view our Eco-Guidelines, you will see that you may build on up to 20% of a residential parcel (e.g. if a residential parcel is 5,500 square feet, or 55 feet by 100 feet, then you may build up to a 1,100 square foot dwelling) and you may build on up to 50% of a commercial parcel (e.g. if a commercial parcel is 5,500 square feet, or 55 feet by 100 feet, then you may build up to a 2,750 square foot dwelling).
You may use the total square footage of all parcels if you purchase multiple parcels in calculating the dwelling size as long as the parcels are contiguous (attached). For example, if you purchase three contiguous residential parcels, each having 5,500 square feet, the calculation is as follows:
Parcel 1 - 5,500 square feet
Parcel 2 - 5,500 square feet
Parcel 3 - 5,500 square feet
Total area 16,500 square feet X .20 (20 percent)...
Total dwelling size permitted is 3,300 square feet.
