Creating new parcels from multiple existing parcels

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

You can select and create new parcels from the selection of multiple existing parcels using the Construct from parent command. Selected parcels must be adjacent. An example of creating new parcels from a selection of multiple parcels would be the creation of an easement parcel that would overlay a row of parcels.

    To split multiple parcels using the Construct from parent command, follow these steps:
  1. In an edit session in ArcMap , click the Select Parcel Features tool Select Parcel Features on the Parcel Editor toolbar and select the adjacent parcels you want to subdivide.
  2. If you are working in manual mode using fabric jobs, select the parcel you want to split in an open fabric job. You can also select the parcel in the Parcel Explorer window.
  3. Right-click the selected parcels and click Construct from parent.
  4. The parcels are opened in the map or in a local coordinate data frame.

  5. Add the construction lines to split the parcels.
  6. Before building parcels, make sure to flag any lines that you do not want to be used to build parcels as unbuildable. Lines that cross without intersection points need to be planarized and will be used to build new parcels. If a line is flagged as unbuildable, it is not used to build parcels.

  7. Right-click the lines that you do not want to be used to build parcels and click Un-buildable.
  8. To build parcels, click the Build parcels and save into map tool Build Into Fabric drop-down arrow and click one of the following choices:
    • Build and mark Historic to build the new subdivision parcels and flag the parent parcel as historic.
    • Build and keep all current to build the new subdivision parcels and keep the parent parcel current.
  9. The new parcels are saved back to the parcel fabric layer or open fabric job.
