Notes for Principal Building Bulk Standards
1. Does not include square footage associated with garages, carports and/or accessory structures.
2. The maximum applies to the area covered by both the principal and accessory structures.
3. Automobile service station: no automobile service station fuel pump (face) shall be located closer than 20 feet to a front or side street lot line.
4. Canopies, cornices, eaves: architectural features, such as canopies, cornices and eaves may extend no more than two feet into any required minimum yard area, provided that all columns, pillars or other supporting structures are placed in conformance to minimum setbacks.
5. Shall not apply to belfries, chimneys, cupolas, domes, flag poles, flues, monuments, radio towers, television antennas or satellite dishes, or aerials, spires, tanks, water towers, air conditions units or similar roof structures, such as parapet walls and cornices and necessary mechanical appurtenances usually carried about the roof level, except for buildings within the airport hazard area. Such features are limited to that height necessary for proper functioning, and any roof structure shall not exceed 25% of the roof area; nor be used for any purpose other than a use incidental to the approved use of the building. In no event shall the height of a building and any appurtenances located within the Airport Hazard Area (AHA) exceed the limitations within the AHA. Height restrictions in the AHA are defined by the slope gradient 7:1 from the centerline of the runway.
6. 700 square feet for an accessory guest house, which must be incidental to, and constructed after, the principal dwelling unit.
7. 25-foot maximum at the eaves; 35 foot maximum at the ridge board.
8. Except Block 13, lots 13-18; 7,800 square foot lots permitted for these lots.
9. Except churches, libraries, hospitals and public buildings.
10. Except Lot 27, Block 14, which shall be 6,500 square feet.
11. For duplexes or end units of single-family attached apartments, only one side yard with a minimum width of 10 feet is required.
12. Only one required side yard of 16 feet may be required (corner lot must have a 20 foot setback) with a conditional use permit if: (1) The lot owner obtains and records a three-foot maintenance easement from the adjacent lot owner; and (2) There is a one-hour firewall from grade to roof sheathing; and (3) No roof shall drain on to adjacent property.
13. For accessory buildings, the setback must be either in the rear half of the lot or 50 feet, whichever is less.
14. Except for Blocks 55-57, Lots 14-22; Block 58, Lots 25-33; Block 59, Lots 34-41 and 44-51; Block 60, Lots 52-59 and 62-69; and Block 61, Lots 29-44, where an eight-foot rear yard setback is permitted, exclusive of any easements.

16. Maximum density not to exceed ten-units per acres, except RV parks, which may permit up to 18 units per acres. A minimum lot size of two acres is required for a RV Park.
17. Duplex units require 3,500 square feet per unit; single-family attached require 2,000 square feet per unit and a minimum lot width of 20 feet; single-family detached requires a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet per unit.

On corner lots, the side street yard shall be the same as the front building lines of the majority of the lots fronting on the same street.
22. 50 feet on interior roads; 100 feet on arterial and collector roads. On corner lots, the side street yard shall be the same as that for the majority of the lots fronting on the same street.
23. Yards abutting streets and vacant areas shall be determined by the Planning and Zoning Commission. For yards abutting existing developments, the minimum setback will be equal to the setback in the adjacent development. The Commission may require greater setbacks, as well as screen walls, hedges, shrubs and trees to preserve the character of the surrounding area.
24. Same as the underlying zoning, except a greater height may be approved if design features, such as open space and building setbacks, to avoid adverse impacts due to the increase in height.
