1240.01  PURPOSE.
   Avon Lake is primarily comprised of detached, owner-occupied, single-family dwellings. While single-family residences require high standards for use and location of principal and accessory buildings if the residential areas are to be maintained and remain high quality places in which to live, flexibility is required in the regulations in order to provide opportunities for diversity in dwelling type as well as to preserve open space. Single-Family Residential District regulations are established to carry out the above purpose and the basic planning objectives stated in Section 1210.02, and to achieve the specific objectives below:
   (a)   R-1 Residence District.  Provide as the prevailing district in the City areas for low density single-family development with a minimum lot size of 15,000 square feet.
   (b)   R-1A Residence District.  Provide areas for slightly higher density single-family development with a minimum lot size of 12,000 square feet, primarily located in already platted but undeveloped portions of the City. This district permits as a conditional use various single-family arrangements in P.U.D.'s.
   (c)   R-1B Residence District.  Provide areas for higher density single-family development with a minimum lot size of 6,500 square feet, to be more consistent with the development pattern in the northeast portion of the City.
