1246.01   ZONING DISTRICTS.
   The following zoning districts are hereby established, and the purpose or intended use of each district is stated.  Permitted uses in each district are listed in this Zoning Code.
   (a)   The "R-1" District is established to provide areas of low-density single-family residential development.  Desired development includes single-family dwellings and uses incidental or accessory to dwellings.  This District maintains the largest minimum lot size, lot widths, and dwelling size.
   (b)   The "R-2" District is established to provide areas of higher density of residential development than is permitted in the R-1 District.  This is generally accomplished through reduced minimum lot sizes, lot widths, and housing sizes.  Regulations include uses permitted in the R-1 District.  Uses incidental or accessory to single-family dwellings are included.
   (c)   The "R-3" District is established in recognition of the need for maintaining existing smaller residential lots primarily within the central City area.  This District is intended for smaller lot and lot width requirements as well as housing sizes to accommodate more affordable housing opportunities.  Development includes single-family dwellings in high density settings.
   (d)   The "R-4" District is established in recognition of the need for affordable housing opportunities within the City, primarily renter-occupied.  This District is intended for apartment complex development and conversion of single-family to multiple-family, duplexes, and condominiums.  Development standards themselves provide additional location and site-related standards for development.
   (e)   The "R-5" District is established in recognition of the need for affordable housing opportunities within the City.  This District is intended for mobile home park development that may include modular and double-wide plus single-wide mobile homes.  Although the park development standards themselves are established by the Mobile Home Commission, this District provides additional location and site-related standards for development.
   (f)   The "C-1" District is established to provide areas of high concentrations of pedestrian-oriented retail, office, and service activities within the traditional central business district.  Desired development includes compatible commercial uses accompanied by on-street, off-street, and Municipally-provided parking.  This District provides additional location and site-related standards for development.
   (g)   The "C-2" District is established to provide areas of commercial development which require large exterior spaces for storage, display, or sale of merchandise or commercial uses which depend upon continual movement of vehicular traffic.  Desired development includes commercial uses accompanied by off-street parking.  This District provides additional location and site-related standards for development.
   (h)   The "C-3" District is established to provide areas of development which are compatible with existing and future medical services and related uses.  Development regulations accommodate office and service businesses which require onsite parking.  This District provides additional location and site related standards for development.
(I)   The "C-4" District is established to provide areas of office development which are compatible with each other without interference from non-related uses.  Development regulations accommodate office businesses which require onsite parking.  This District provides additional location and site related standards for development.
   (j)   The "IND" District is established to provide areas of light industrial development in which the uses do not emit excessive noise, fumes, smoke, vibrations, odors, or other similar nuisances not compatible with adjacent residential neighborhoods.  It is not intended to permit residential or commercial development or similar uses except as authorized by this Zoning Code.  This District provides additional location and site-related standards for development.
