An overview of residential zoning in North Shoal Creek under the proposed land development code

Existing single family zoning in North Shoal Creek becomes R2A zoning, with this exception: single-family houses along Rockwood between Steck and Anderson become R4. R4 is the least-intense missing middle zone in a transition area.

What can be built in an R2A zone? A maximum of 2 dwelling units, although a home qualifying for a preservation incentive could build a total of 3 units

  •           On a 5,000 sq. ft. lot: 1 single-family home, a duplex, or a single-family home with an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit)
  •           On a 2,500 sq. ft. lot: 1 single-family attached home
  •           Setbacks from property line: 25’ front, 15’ side street, 5’ side, 10’ rear
  •           Overall height: 35’
  •           Allowable impervious cover: 45% if lot width is greater than 45’; 50% if less than 45’
  •          Off street parking: 1 space/dwelling unit.  No parking requirement for an ADU.
  •          Maximum height of a dwelling within 10’ of property line: 30’

What isn’t allowed in R2A? Co-housing, cottage courts, group residential, multi-family homes, Type 3 short term rentals, townhomes, and stables.

What isn’t allowed in R4? New single family or single-family attached homes and stables. However, existing single-family homes can be maintained in perpetuity and expanded or rebuilt. Only if a single-family home were expanded to include multiple units would the right to resume single-family use of a property be lost.

What can be built in an R4 zone? A maximum of 4 dwelling units with 4 additional units (for a total of 8) allowed under the AHBP (Affordable Housing Bonus Program)

  •           On a 10,000 sq. ft. lot with a minimum 90’ width: 6 unit cottage court; AHBP doesn’t apply.
  •           On a 5,000 sq. ft. lot: A duplex or  a multi-family unit up to a maximum of 4 units, with 4 additional units allowed under the AHBP
  •           On a 1,800 sq. ft. lot with a minimum 18’ width: a  townhouse
  •           Setbacks: 15’ front, 10’ side street, 5’ side, 5’ rear
  •           Building maximum width: 80’
  •           Overall height: 35’ + 10’ (total 45’) under the AHBP.
  •           Allowable impervious cover: 50%
