(A) General. This section establishes basic lot and building regulations that apply in agricultural districts. These regulations offer certainty for property owners, developers and neighbors about the limits of what is allowed; they should not be construed as a guarantee that maximum allowed densities and development yields can be achieved on every lot. Other factors, such as topography, the presence of protected resources, health department requirements for well and septic, off-street parking and other factors may work to further limit actual development potential.
(B) Basic standards. The lot and building standards of the following table apply to all principal and accessory uses allowed in agricultural districts, except as otherwise expressly stated in this zoning ordinance. General exceptions to these standards and rules for measuring compliance can be found in § 155-18.10.
