17.26.010 Purpose and application.

The R-2 zone is intended to provide housing opportunities for people who want compact residences close to commercial and public services. These areas will usually lie between zones of higher and lower residential density and/or adjacent to office (O) zones or neighborhood commercial (C-N) zones. This zone will be applied to areas designated “medium-density residential” on the general plan map. (Ord. 941 § 1 (part), 1982: prior code § 9203.2(A))

17.26.020 Property development standards.

The property development standards for the R-2 zone are as follows:

A. Maximum density: Twelve dwelling units per net acre (see also Section 17.16.010). For a single-family residence (single unit on one lot) located in the medium-density residential zone (R-2), density unit values may be rounded up to the nearest one-half density unit (example: 1.37 = 1.5). Condominiums and common interest subdivisions shall conform to standard R-2 density requirements where maximum density is calculated by rounding to the nearest one-hundredth unit.

B. Yards: See Section 17.16.020.

C. Maximum height: Thirty-five feet (see also Sections 17.16.020 and 17.16.040).

2. Minimum lot width: Fifty feet.

3. Minimum lot depth: Eighty feet.

4. Minimum street frontage: Twenty feet.
