Comprehensive Land Use Categories

Land Use Category: “Medium Density Residential”

Description of Land Use Category:

Medium Density Residential includes small lot single family development, accessory dwellings, duplexes, cottage houses, triplexes, fourplexes, and townhomes. Exhibiting a medium density, this category provides for a diversity of residential development while still maintaining an overall urban residential character. Typically, Low Density Residential uses are found within this classification, and should be located in the center of the neighborhood, with Medium Density Residential being located at the edges of the neighborhood.

Recommended Zoning Districts: RM-4, Mixed Residential, RM-5, Mixed Residential, RM-6, Mixed Residential, (and less intense residential zoning districts)

 

Land Use Category: “High Density Residential”

Description of Land Use Category:

High Density Residential provides for compact development consisting of the full spectrum of residential unit types, and includes apartments and condominiums. All residential uses can be found within this classification. High Density Residental is typically located along or in the vicinity of major arterials or collectors, often in close proximity to commercial and transportation facilities. This classification may be used as a transition between Low Density Residential or Medium Density Residential uses and non-residential uses. Appropriate buffering should be required between High Density Residential uses and other residential uses. High Density Residential uses should be located in a manner that does not route traffic through other residential uses, often in close proximity to commercial and transportation facilities.

Recommended Zoning Districts: MF-25, Multifamily, MF-33, Multifamily, MF-40, Multifamily, MF-50, Multifamily, (and less intense residential zoning districts)
