The residential districts are intended to be limited to dwellings and public or semi-public uses which are normally associated with residential neighborhoods. The only uses permitted in residential districts are those which would not detract from the residential character of the neighborhood. The purpose of these three districts is to create an attractive, stable and orderly residential environment. However, the property development regulations vary among the three districts in order to provide for the various housing needs and designs of citizens.
