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)
