Section 4.07 Footnotes:
   (a)   For all dwelling units, the minimum yard setback shall be twelve (12) feet between main buildings on adjoining lots, or the setback as described in subsection (a) hereof, whichever is greater.  The setback shall be determined by measuring from the exterior wall of each building to the side lot line or to the next main building on any adjoining lot.  If the building roof overhang is more than two (2) feet, then, in such an event, the setback shall be measured from the exterior edge of the overhang.
   For all principal uses other than dwelling units, the minimum yard setback shall be determined by the applicable provisions of the Building and Housing Code or the setback as described in subsection (a) hereof, whichever is greater.
   (b)   For all uses permitted, other than one-family residential, the setback shall equal the greater of the height of the main building or the required setback.
   (c)   The side yard setback abutting a street shall not be less than ten (10) feet when there is a common rear yard relationship in the block and a common side yard relationship with the block directly across the common separating street.  In the case of a rear yard abutting a side yard of an adjacent lot, the side yard setback abutting a street shall not be less than the required minimum front yard of the district.
   (d)   The maximum density shall be computed as follows:
      (1)   Efficiency or one-bedroom units shall not exceed ten (10) dwelling units per acre or 4,356 square feet of site area for each dwelling unit.
      (2)   Two-bedroom units shall not exceed eight (8) dwelling units per acre of 5,445 square feet of site area for each dwelling unit.
      (3)   Three-bedroom units shall not exceed six (6) dwelling units per acre or 7,260 square feet of site area for each dwelling unit.
The area used for computing density shall be the total site area, exclusive of any dedicated public right of way of either an interior or adjacent street.
   (e)   In an R-M, Multiple Family Residential District, the minimum distance between two (2) buildings shall be twenty-five (25) feet.
   (f)   Parking is permitted in the front yard with a minimum ten (10) foot setback from the street right of way provided.  The parking plan layout, points of access and screening shall be approved by the Planning Commission.  Screening shall be provided in accordance with Section 5.10(d)(3).
   (g)   The Planning Commission may approve a building height in excess of thirty-five (35) feet in accordance with the Section 3.03, Special Land Use provisions, and providing the following conditions have been met:
      (1)   All structures, or portions of structures, within one hundred (100) feet of a residentially zoned parcel shall be maintained at no greater than thirty-five (35) feet tall;
      (2)   All structures, or portions of structures, between one hundred (100) and one hundred and fifty (150) feet from a residentially zoned parcel shall be maintained at no greater than forty-five (45) feet tall;
      (3)   All structures, or portions of structures, beyond one hundred and fifty (150) feet from a residentially zoned parcel shall be maintained at no greater than fifty-five (55) feet tall;
      (4)   The structure has compatible architectural style and mass with the adjacent parcels; and
      (5)   One (1) or more of the following shall apply: off-street parking is provided on-site, the building is part of a mixed use development, or there is a demonstrated community benefit (i.e. parkland, public parking, community buildings, etc.).
   (h)   No building shall be closer than sixty (60) feet from the outer perimeter (property line) of the district when such property line abuts a residential district.
   (i)   For all uses permitted, other than one-family dwellings, the maximum height of a structure shall be three stories or thirty-five (35) feet.
   (j)   Parcels in an I-1, Light Industrial District with an acreage of less than forty (40) acres can have a maximum structural height of fifty (50) feet.  I-1, Light Industrial District parcels greater than forty acres (40) can have a maximum structural height of seventy-five (75) feet.
   (k)   Refer to Article 6, Section 6.24
   (l)   Refer to Article 6, Section 6.22.
   (m)   Where a P-1, Vehicular Parking District is contiguous to a residential district which has a common frontage on the same block with a residential structure, or wherein no residential structures have been yet erected, there shall be a setback equal to the required residential setback for such residential district, or a minimum of twenty-five (25) feet, whichever is greater, unless, under unusual circumstances, the Planning Commission finds that no good purpose would be served by compliance with such setback requirements.  The required wall shall be located on a minimum setback line.
   (n)   For all one-family and two-family residential dwellings the maximum lot coverage shall not exceed 30% for the main building including attached accessory buildings.
   (o)   Front yard encroachments for porches or porticos may be considered by the Planning Commission in accordance with Section 4.05(d).
   (p)   All buildings shall be located at the build-to-line located no more than the average distance from the road right-of-way to the existing building setback of all buildings within five hundred (500) feet of the property in question. The distance shall be measured along the abutting road frontage whether located mid- block or at the corner of two (2) intersection streets (see subsequent graphic attached to this footnote). When a parcel within the distance noted has an excessively large or small setback, or is used for non- commercial purposes, it may be excluded from the determination of the build-to-line. The build-to-line will be determined by the Planning Commission on a parcel by parcel basis.
 
(q)   All principal residential buildings shall be set back at least twenty-five (25) feet from the road right-of-way, except in cases where the average setback is greater than 40 feet, then the average setback shall apply.
   (1)   The average setback shall be the average (arithmetic mean) distance from the road right-of-way to the existing building face of the enclosed structure for all residential dwellings within one hundred (100) feet of the property in question, as determined by the Zoning Administrator.
   (2)   The distance shall be measured along the abutting road frontage whether located mid-block or at the corner of two (2) intersecting streets (see subsequent graphic attached to this footnote). The average calculation includes properties that are corner lots. The average ignores vacant properties.
   (3)   Residential front setback averaging shall apply to new construction as well as additions and renovations located in the front yard.
   (4)   Unenclosed porches and porticos on a residential structure are subject to the requirements of Section 4.05(d).
