The purpose of the Estate-Residential District is to provide areas for the development of low-density, large residential dwelling lots which front on public streets and are serviced by public utilities. Such districts are envisioned on the edge of the corporation limits where further annexations are not likely or impractical and on lands that are encumbered by steep slopes, wetlands, floodplains, abandoned coal mines or other environmental and/or manmade conditions that make it impractical or cost prohibitive to subdivide the property into smaller residential dwelling lots. E-R districts also provide a buffer and transition in density from adjacent low density township residential districts to more intensive residential zoning districts in the city.
