What are Residential Areas 1 & 2? How are they different?
The City’s single-family residential properties are divided into two (2) areas, Residential Area 1 and Residential Area 2. Residential Area 1 consists of mature subdivisions that were recorded prior to January 1, 1989 and Residential Area 2 consists of newer subdivisions that were recorded after January 1, 1989. The City’s Zoning Ordinance imposes additional restrictions on new construction within Residential Area 1 to ensure that it is compatible with surrounding properties in terms of setbacks, lot coverage, height, floor area, and garage location. Properties located within Residential Area 2 are simply required to comply with the bulk regulations of the zoning district in which they are located.
