Overview | Photos

Development in Brookville between 1920 and 1940 was a mix of single-family frame buildings and brick row houses.

During the post-war decades, development was predominantly detached one- and two-family houses.

During the last five years, more than 90 new housing units have been added, mostly two-family, semi-detached houses built on vacant land throughout the area.

Under the existing R3-2 zoning, multi-family apartments are allowed as-of-right, such as this 25-unit apartment complex constructed on lots previously occupied by single family houses.

The proposed R3-1 zoning district will prevent future multi-family buildings, which would be inconsistent with the character and scale of the surrounding area, while continuing to allow one- and two-family detached and semi-detached houses.
