§ 20.206.170  DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS; DETACHED DWELLINGS.
   A.   Purpose and intent.  The purpose of creating development standards for detached dwelling units is to ensure the development of communities that are appropriate to the hillside setting as well as preserving the look of a natural hillside to the greatest extent possible.  The various standards are designed to work together and result in a hillside community design that allows for the appropriate amount of setback for structure-to-structure conditions and building-to-street conditions.  In addition to appropriate setback requirements, the standards will also ensure that structures will be built so as not to offset the visual scale of the hillsides.

   B.   Density.  Density limitations shall be determined as set forth in § 20.206.060.
   C.   Minimum pad size.  The minimum area of a pad on a lot, including the summation of multiple pad areas where split-level construction is proposed, shall be six thousand (6,000) square feet.
   D.   Building setbacks.  Building setbacks shall be set forth in Table 20.206.170.C.  All setbacks shall be measured from the edge of the pad.

   E.   Floor-area ratios.  Maximum allowable floor-area ratios shall be as set forth in § 20.206.060.D.
   F.   Building height; primary structure.  Each proposed single-family detached structure in the Hillside Residential zone shall comply with the following height limits.
      1.   Height measurement.  The maximum allowable building height shall be measured as the vertical distance from the existing or planned grade of the pad at the point of the building foundation to the mid-point of the roof.  For split-level construction, each building component shall be measured from the site pad area on which that component is located.

      2.   General height limit.  No structure shall exceed a height of thirty-five (35) feet.
      3.   Height of lowest floor level.  The vertical distance between the lowest point where the foundation meets grade and the lowest floor line of the structure shall not exceed six (6) feet.
