Now. About that proclamation. Your Honor. A a what s spot zoning o. What is spot zoning i understand there is no definition for spot zoning so with what fact is a spot zone Case proven in a court of Law the citizens of Archdale Are very interested in the answer. Anon. A. According to High Points director of planning Duncan Mcintyre a spot zoning a is not a Legal but a descriptive term which laymen use to describe what the courts often refer to As a arbitrary and capricious a Good discussion of this subject can be found in Mcquillin s a municipal 1965 revised volume 8. Sections 25.83 and 25 84. Says Mcintyre. The prime test of whether an action constitutes spot zoning is wether there was reasonable basis for the action. In other words he says one property owner should not be extended benefits by a zoning change which would be denied to another owner in similar circumstances and under similar conditions. While spot zoning is usually thought of in terms of single lots or Small areas the size of the area involved is not the primary consideration. The reasonableness of the action and its consistency with the plans of the City Are the keys. If someone wishes to pursue a question of spot zoning seriously Mcintyre recommends that he consult an attorney since a final answer can Only come from the courts.
