I am trying to select for adjacent tax parcels where their total area would be close to a specific value (450 acres). Area is already an attribute of each parcel.

ArcGIS v. 10.3.1

Unfamiliar with Python. Have tried and attempted to research various "select" options and neighbors calculations.

Create a new field in your feature class called "Acres".

Open the Calculate Field tool. Select "Acres" as the field to calculate. In the expression section, put the following: "!shape.area@acres!".

Use the "Select Layer By Attributes" tool to select features that are in your range. An express might look similar to this: "Acres" > 440 AND "Acres" < 460.
