The R2 district was determined to be the zoning district which best reflects the one-family detached character of the rezoning area. The R2 district permits one-family detached houses on lots with a minimum 40 foot width and a minimum area of 3,800 square feet. The R2 zoning district allows a maximum FAR of .5 and no attic allowance. Two side yards are required for a total of 13 feet, with a 5 foot minimum.
The proposed action would map R2 districts within the two rezoning Sub-areas: R2 districts are presently mapped to the west of Sub-area West and to the east of Sub-area East.
