Notes:
      1.   Duplex only permitted on first 10,000 square feet. Any additional units must meet density per acre standards.
      2.   "Average size" means the total acreage devoted to lots divided by the number of lots. Net density definition shall apply.
      3.   Except as otherwise permitted by subsection 10-13-7C of this chapter.
      4.   Except as otherwise permitted by subsection 10-13-7B of this chapter.
      5.   Except as modified by the provisions of subsection 10-37-12F, "Setback Measurement", of this title.
      6.   If located at least 10 feet from main building, 2 feet. Otherwise, same as for main building.
      7.   When this side setback is required, rear setback may be reduced to 10 feet.
      8.    Pools must be located behind front yard setbacks. Setback is measured from rear and side property lines. Pools may require special engineering. A closer property line setback may be approved by the building official if engineering ensures structural integrity for any adjoining buildings or walls as well as the pool.
   9.   If located at least 10 feet from main building, 10 feet. Otherwise, same as for main building. No accessory building shall be built within a Public Utility Easement.
