This development area provides for the orderly development of attached single-family housing. For purposes of this chapter, “Attached Single-Family Housing Units” shall be defined as those joined by a common wall, with no second story ownership, and which utilize tuck-under parking (see Exhibit No. 27 of the Specific Plan). The standards of the "RM-2" Multiple-Family Residential Zone in Chapter 18.06 (Multiple-Family Residential Zones) shall apply for development in this area, except as otherwise provided below:
.010 Required Site Screening. Except as otherwise provided herein, a solid, decorative-type, masonry wall, landscaped earthen berm, or any combination thereof, totaling not less than six (6) feet in height, shall be provided along, and immediately adjacent to, the site boundary line of any multi-family development abutting any freeway or expressway, or any RS (residential, single-family) or commercial zone boundary, or any alley abutting any such boundary. The height of any such wall and/or berm shall be as measured from the highest finished grade level of the building pad of the dwelling units located nearest any such abutting boundary. The Planning Director shall review and approve plans for solid fences adjacent to any public street, in cases where views could be obstructed.
However, in conditions where a grade separation between any arterial highway and property line occurs at a minimum of six (6) feet, and a minimum setback of twelve (12) feet exists between the single-family development and conditions as stated above, an open, decorative-type wall is permitted, in order to allow and preserve view opportunities.
.020 Maximum Height. Any building may have a maximum height of two (2) stories, not to exceed twenty-six (26) feet.
.030 Structural Setback Requirements. Abutting any expressway or arterial highway, there shall be provided a landscaped building setback of not less than twenty-five (25) feet.
.040 Yard Requirements. Any building wall containing a main entrance or a window opening onto a habitable space which faces a street shall have a yard having a minimum depth of five (5) feet. Second story elements may project into these setbacks.
.050 Street Widths. Streets other than the main entry street may be twenty (20) feet wide.
.060 Parking. Not less than three and one-half (3.5) spaces per unit containing three (3) bedrooms or more and which gain access from a private street, otherwise two and one-half (2.5) spaces per one (1) bedroom and larger unit and one and one-half (1.5) spaces per bachelor unit is required. No less than one-quarter (.25) spaces per unit shall be reserved for guest parking from the above amounts.
