NOTES:
   a.   See § 154.086, Subdivision open space plan, regarding exceptions to lot area and density controls.
   b.   Where the front yards of two or more principal structures in any block in existence at the time of passage of the 1967 Zoning Ordinance, within the district zoned and on the same side of the street, are less than the minimum front yard indicated above, then any building subsequently erected on that side of the street shall not be less than, but need not be greater than the average depth of the front yards of said two or more structures.
   c.   In the case of a rear yard abutting a side yard, or when a side yard is adjacent to a front yard across a common separating street, the side yard abutting a street shall not be less than the minimum front yard of the district in which located. In the case of a common rear yard relationship, the side yard abutting upon a street shall not be less than ten feet.
   d.   In an R-M Multiple-Family District the total number of rooms of 80 square feet or more (not including kitchen, dining and sanitary facilities) shall not be more than the area of the parcel, in square feet, divided by 1,200. All units shall have at least one living room and one bedroom, except that not more than 10% of the units may be of an efficiency apartment type.
      In an R-M District, for the purpose of computing the permitted number of dwelling units per acre the following assignments shall control:
         Efficiency - 1 room
         One Bedroom - 2 rooms bedroom units and including a “den”
         Two Bedrooms - 3 rooms “library” or other extra room shall count
         Three Bedrooms - 4 rooms such other extra room
         Four Bedrooms - 5 rooms purpose of computing density.
      In an R-M District, the area used for computing density shall be the total site area exclusive of any dedicated public right-of-way of either interior or bounding roads.
   e.   In an R-M District front, side, or rear yards need not refer to spacing between buildings for a planned development for two or more buildings on the same parcel. In such cases of two or more buildings on a single parcel the minimum distance between any two buildings on the parcel shall be regulated as follows:
         Building Relationship            Minimum Distance Between Buildings1
         Front to Front2                  60 feet
         Front to Rear2                     80 feet
         Front to Side2                     50 feet
         Rear to Rear3                     50 feet
         Rear to Side3                     30 feet
         Side to Side3                     20 feet
         Corner to Corner3                  15 feet
         Corner to Front, Side or Rear2            40 feet
   1 Distance between any two buildings shall be measured horizontally from the nearest point of one building to the nearest point of the other building.
   2 Parking may be located between buildings providing the area to be used for parking is in addition to the required minimum distance between buildings. In no instance shall there be less than 15 feet of yard space between the parking area and the multiple family building.
   3 Parking may be permitted to occupy the minimum distance between buildings provided that there shall be not less than ten feet of yard space between the parking area and the multiple family building.
The “front” and “rear” of the multiple family building shall be considered to be the faces along the longest dimensions of the building. The “front” of the building shall be considered to be the direction faced by the living rooms of the dwelling units in the building; the “rear” of the building shall be considered to be the direction faced by the kitchen and/or service entrance of the dwelling units in said building; and the “sides” of the building shall be considered to be the face along the narrowest dimensions of the building.
In order to preserve the general open character of the district, multiple family buildings shall be limited to 180 feet in length.
   f.   Planned developments involving five acres or more under one ownership shall be subject to the approval of the Board of Appeals, after public hearing, regarding modifications with respect to height regulations. In approving an increase in structure height, the Board of Appeals shall require that all yards be increased above the minimum requirement by one foot for each foot of building that exceeds the maximum height limitation.
   g.   Parking may be permitted in required yard space after approval of the parking plan layout and points of access by the Planning Commission.
   h.   No side yards are required along the interior side lot lines of the District, except as otherwise specified in the Building Code, provided that if walls of structures facing such interior side lot lines contained windows, or other openings, side yards of not less than ten feet shall be provided.
      On a corner lot which borders on a residential district, there shall be provided setback of 20 feet on the side adjacent to the residential street. On any other side yard abutting a residential district there shall be provided a setback of ten feet in width.
   i.   Off-street loading space shall be provided in the rear yard in the ratio of at least ten square feet per front foot of building and shall be provided in addition to any required off-street parking area; except that in O-1 Districts loading space shall be provided in a ratio of five square feet per front foot of building. Off-street loading space shall further meet the requirements of §§ 154.100 through 154.114, “General Requirements.” Where an alley exists or is provided at the rear of the buildings the rear yard setback and loading requirements may be computed from the centerline of said alley. Off-street loading space may be located within the required rear yard.
   j.   No buildings or structure shall be located closer than 50 feet to the outer perimeter (property line) of such district when said property line abuts any residential district. A completely obscuring masonry wall not less than six feet in height or a 20 foot wide greenbelt planted in accord with the minimum requirements as provided in §§ 154.100 through 154.114, “General Requirements” shall be provided when side or rear yards are abutting land zoned for residential use.
      Required side yard may be used for off-street parking or loading and unloading provided that in such instances the Planning Commission shall review and approve the proposed parking and site plan to determine that sufficient access to the rear of the building is provided for fire fighting or other emergency type equipment.
   k.   Off-street loading space shall be provided in accord with the requirements of §§ 154.100 through 154.114, “General Requirements” and shall be provided in addition to any required off-street parking area.
   l.   There shall be no specific height limitation in a B-2 District; provided, however, that prior to the issuance of a building permit for any structure over 30 feet in height, the Board of Appeals shall make a finding that such excessive height will not be detrimental to the light, air or privacy of any structure or use currently existing or approved for construction. In approving a height in excess of 30 feet the Board of Appeals shall follow the standards set forth below.
      1.   All enlargements or new construction shall respect the established building line.
      2.   In the B-2 District, the maximum floor area for a building shall not exceed a floor area to lot area ratio of 2:1.
      3.   For each square foot of plaza provided on a lot, the total floor area may be increased by three square feet. The plaza area referred to shall be an open area along a street, no less than five feet deep.
