R2

R2 zoning district permits only single-family, detached residences on lots that have a minimum area of 3,800 square feet and a minimum lot width of 40 feet. The maximum FAR is 0.5. There is no maximum building height; instead, the building’s maximum height is determined by the sky exposure plane, which has a varying height depending on where the building is located on its zoning lot beyond the minimum required front yard. Community facilities are permitted at a maximum FAR of 0.5. One parking space per dwelling unit is required.

R3-2
R3-2 zoning district is the lowest-density general residence district in which multi-family structures are permitted. A variety of housing types are permitted, including garden apartments, row houses, semi-detached and detached houses. The maximum FAR is 0.6, which includes a 0.1 attic allowance. Minimum lot width and lot area depend upon the housing configuration: detached residences require a 40-foot lot width and 3,800 square feet of lot area; other housing types require lots to have at least 18 feet of width and 1,700 square feet of lot area. The maximum building height is 35 feet, with a maximum perimeter wall height of 21 feet. One parking space is required for each dwelling unit.

Commercial Overlays – C1-1, C1-2 and C2-1
C1-1, C1-2 and C2-1 commercial overlay districts are mapped within existing residential districts along primary thoroughfares, including Hook Creek Boulevard, Merrick Boulevard, Francis Lewis Boulevard, South Conduit Avenue and 243rd Street. C1-1 and C1-2 districts allow Use Group 6 commercial establishments, which include uses that serve local retail needs (e.g. grocery stores, restaurants). C2-1 districts include a wider range of retail and service establishments in Use Groups 5 through 9 and 14 (e.g. repair services, catering halls, funeral homes). Maximum commercial floor area can reach 1.0 FAR with commercial uses limited to the first floor in mixed-use buildings. In C1-1 and C2-1 overlay districts, most retail uses require one accessory parking space per 150 square feet of commercial floor space, though these requirements may range between one space per 100 square feet and 400 square feet of commercial space. In C1-2 overlay districts, most retail uses require one space per 300 square feet of commercial floor area though the requirements may range between one space per 200 square feet and 800 square feet of commercial floor area.
