The goals of the Bayside rezoning proposal are to preserve the area’s established detached and semi-detached character and to ensure that future residential development is consistent with that character. The proposal has three principal components.

The proposal is comprised of three principal components, each consisting of several associated actions:

  • Citywide Text Change: Establishment of a new citywide R2A zoning district, based on the current R2 district but with new floor area allowances, lot coverage requirements, and revised height and setback regulations;

  • Contextual Rezoning: Rezoning of much of the Bayside area from R2, R3-1, R3-2, R4 and R4A to lower-density or contextual zoning districts (R1-2, R2A, R3A, R3X, R3-1, R4-1, R4B); and

  • Commercial Overlay Rezoning and Modifications to Existing Overlays: Rezoning of selected C1-2 selected commercial overlays, including removing overlays on two block fronts and modifying selected C1-2 and C2-3 overlays by reducing their depth from 150 feet to 100 feet.
