SECTION XIV. DISTRICT REGULATIONS
Subsection 220: Bulk, yard, and density regulations
14-220.6 Average Front Yard Requirement. The front setback line shall be determined by 90% of the average of the closest primary structures on each side of the subject lot or the distances in Table II, whichever is greater; provided that no front yards shall be required to be greater than one hundred fifty (150) feet in depth.
14-220.6 Minimum Front Yard Setback. The front yard setback shall be determined by the average setbacks of four (4) Lots, which are most adjacent with like-facing homes thereon. If such average is not capable of being determined due to lack of development on adjacent Lots or is otherwise impractical due to site conditions affecting adjacent Lots, then the Minimum Front Yard Setback is as set forth in Table II.
14-220.8 Lot Area. “Lot Area” means the horizontal area included within the boundary lines of a Lot, typically stated in terms of acreage or square feet.
14-220.9 Minimum Street Frontage. The minimum street frontage is as set forth in Table II, except for cul-de-sac streets which shall have not less than forty (40) feet
14-220.11 Minimum Rear Yard Setback. The minimum rear setback is as set forth in Table II.
14-220.12 Minimum Side Yard Setback. The minimum side yard setbacks are as set forth in Table II.
14-220.13 Maximum Allowable Heated/Cooled Space. The maximum allowable heated/cooled space will be determined by calculating total heated and cooled square footage as a percentage of the maximum lot coverage. See Table II for the appropriate percentage for each zoning classification.
DELETE: The existing Table II, Lot, Yard, Bulk, and Density Requirements. (See Exhibit A).
ADD: The new Table II, Lot, Yard, Bulk and Density Requirements. (See Exhibit B).
