“Flag lot” shall mean a lot which has at least six (6) courses or sides, at least three (3) of which form a staff which abuts a public or private access way and provides access to the rest of the lot. The staff shall be a minimum of fifty (50') feet in length, measured from the side abutting the public or private access way to the point at which the staff expands into the bulk or flag portion of the lot. The staff shall have a width not less than twenty (20’) feet nor greater than forty (40’) feet at its widest portion. A flag lot shall have two (2) separate front yards with two (2) front property line designations. One front yard shall be located in the staff portion adjacent to the street with a front property line separating the staff from a street. A second front yard shall be located in the bulk or flag portion of the flag lot with a front property line which closely parallels the street. A front yard in the flag portion of the lot may have a front property line designation that is closely perpendicular to a street where the perpendicular lot line is narrower than the lot line that closely parallels the street provided that the side yards of the flag lot are adjacent to side yards of adjoining lots. In the case of flag lots with zero lot line dwelling units, setbacks shall be in accordance with Section 9-4.904(d)(2)(ii)(ad).
