10-40.30.010 Purpose

This division provides regulatory standards governing land use and building form within the non-transect zones. These standards are intended to ensure that proposed development is compatible with existing and future development and produces an environment of desirable character consistent with the General Plan. The General Plan shall guide appropriate densities in the zones.

10-40.30.020 Applicability

A.    The requirements of this division shall apply to all proposed development within non-transect zones, and shall be considered in combination with the standards in Chapter 10-50, Supplemental to Zones, and Division 10-40.60, Specific to Uses. If there is a conflict between any standards, the provisions of this division control over Chapter 10-50, Supplemental to Zones, and the provisions of Division 10-40.60, Specific to Uses, control over this division and Chapter 10-50, Supplemental to Zones.

B.    Affordable housing incentives may be applied to zones allowing residential uses in compliance with Division 10-30.20, Affordable Housing.

C.    If a proposed use is not listed in a zone in the following allowed uses tables as a permitted or conditionally permitted use, it shall not be permitted unless the Director determines that the proposed use is substantially similar to a use specified as a permitted or conditional use in that zone. The Director’s determination shall not permit the establishment of any use that would be inconsistent with the statement of purpose of the zone in question, and no interpretation shall have the effect of amending, abrogating, or waiving any other standard or requirement established in these regulations. Further, the Director’s determination shall not have the effect of changing the zoning designation on a parcel of land.

10-40.30.030 Residential Zones

A.    Intent.

1.    RR. The Rural Residential (RR) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for both housing and limited agricultural uses that preserve the area’s rural character. This zone is predominantly large lot single-family development. However, it does allow for cluster and planned residential developments, which provide opportunities for higher densities. The RR zone applies to those non-urban areas of the City that cannot be economically and efficiently provided with City services associated with urban living. As such, it is designed for the utilization and enjoyment of the City’s unique mountain environment with a minimum amount of municipal services and improvements. This zone is also intended to be used to protect against premature development in areas on the fringe of the urban service area.

2.    ER. The Estate Residential (ER) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for estate type housing on large lots and limited agricultural uses. This zone is primarily designed for the utilization and enjoyment of the City’s unique mountain environment. The ER zone is intended to encourage landscaping and buffers that preserve and enhance the rural appearance. Cluster and planned residential developments allowed in this zone are intended to promote natural resource protection in the more rural parts of the City. Where substantial areas of open space are provided, this zone allows for a variety of single-family housing types in affordable and planned development options.

3.    R1. The Single-Family Residential (R1) zone applies to areas of the City intended for single-family residential development. The affordable and planned residential development options in this zone are intended to provide design flexibility for residential development and more efficient and effective use of open space, while creating transitional areas into nonresidential or higher density residential zones and protecting areas with sensitive environmental characteristics.

4.    R1N. The Single-Family Residential Neighborhood (R1N) zone applies to those neighborhoods that are located between the City’s Historic Downtown District and outlying areas of more recent suburban development. The R1N zone, therefore, helps to maintain and enhance the historic character, scale and architectural integrity of the downtown and surrounding area. Single-family residential development is the primary use type, and more than one single-family residence per lot is permitted where allowed by the applicable density standard. This zone is intended to preserve and build upon the existing development patterns inherent to Flagstaff’s oldest neighborhoods. New development, renovations, and additions should, therefore, be in character and scale with the existing architectural characteristics of this zone.

5.    MR. The Medium Density Residential (MR) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for moderate density residential. This zone allows a variety of housing types, including affordable and planned residential development that allow for higher densities.

6.    HR. The High Density Residential (HR) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for medium to high density multiple-family residential development. This zone is intended to provide an environment having maximum living amenities on-site while providing affordable housing, residential design flexibility, more efficient use of open space, and better separation of pedestrian and vehicular traffic. This zone allows affordable and planned residential development that allow for higher densities.

7.    MH. The Manufactured Housing (MH) zone is applied to areas of the City appropriate for orderly planned development of manufactured housing parks and subdivisions to accommodate manufactured houses as a primary use. This zone also accommodates conventionally framed or constructed single-family residences and accessory uses that are related or incidental to the primary use and not detrimental to the residential environment.

B.     Residential Zones – Allowed Uses. The allowed land uses of each of the Residential zones are shown in Table 10-40.30.030.B.

10-40.30.040 Commercial Zones

A.    Intent.

1.    SC. The Suburban Commercial (SC) zone applies in areas with suburban character that are appropriate for neighborhood commercial uses. This zone allows retail and service establishments that supply commodities or perform services meeting the needs of adjacent residential neighborhoods. The SC zone encourages the orderly development of dispersed commercial areas and diverse housing choices. The standards of this zone ensure that such commercial zones will be compatible with adjacent, noncommercial development and will minimize the undesirable effects of heavy traffic, type of activity, and site development requirements.

2.    CC. The Community Commercial (CC) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for dispersed commercial areas designed to serve communitywide needs. Such areas provide a wide variety of goods and services in predominately established, built up areas and must be consistent with the overall development of the City and its environs. The development of residential uses in addition to commercial uses is also encouraged in this zone to provide diversity in housing choices. The provisions of this zone are intended to ensure that such commerce will be compatible with adjacent, noncommercial development and to minimize the undesirable effects of heavy traffic, commercial activity, and site requirements.

3.    NCC. The Neighborhood Community Commercial (NCC) zone applies to pre-World War II urban areas, intense suburban areas, and new neighborhood-scale activity centers and urban neighborhoods of the City, which are appropriate for a mixed composition of live/work opportunities in a walkable neighborhood environment. The property development standards of this zone provide for a variety of densities and intensities in varying scales, while maintaining a building height that is compatible to older and historic structures within the City. The uses of this zone provide for a diversity of housing options and commercial opportunities that serve the neighborhood and the larger community. The specific provisions of the zone are intended to achieve a neighborhood of moderate sized compatible uses, while minimizing the undesirable effects of more intense commercial activities, large-scale high occupancy housing, and heavy traffic.

4.    HC. The Highway Commercial (HC) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for a full range of automobile-oriented services. The development of commercial uses in addition to residential uses is encouraged in the HC zone to provide diversity in housing choices; provided, that residential uses are located above or behind commercial buildings so that they are buffered from adjoining highway corridors. The provisions of this zone are also intended to provide for convenient, controlled access and parking, without increasing traffic burdens upon the adjacent streets and highways. This zone is designated primarily at the commercial corridors of the City, with the intention of making the City more attractive as a tourist destination while providing needed commercial activity.

5.    CS. The Commercial Service (CS) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for those service industries and support activities necessary to maintain viable commercial retail trade centers. The development of residential uses in addition to commercial uses is encouraged in this zone; provided, that residential uses are located above or behind the primary commercial service use.

6.    CB. The Central Business (CB) zone applies to the central core area which is appropriate for accommodating retail commercial, personal services, and governmental, business, financial, professional, and general offices. The uses in this area require a central location accessible to all routes entering the City and grouped so that the shopper or user can park once and visit a number of stores and offices on foot. The development of residential uses in addition to commercial uses is encouraged in this zone; provided, that residential uses are located on the second story or above or behind on the first floor.

B.     Commercial Zones – Allowed Uses. The allowed land uses of each of the Commercial zones are shown in Table 10-40.30.040.B.

10-40.30.050 Industrial Zones

A.    Intent.

1.    RD. The Research and Development (RD) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for the development of a mix of professional and administrative facilities, research and testing institutions, light manufacturing uses, green technology facilities, and offices. The uses are grouped in a campus or park-like setting in keeping with the natural scenic beauty of the City. This zone is intended to promote the provision of ample off-street parking, loading areas, and landscape buffers to protect residential and commercial zones from incompatible land uses. In addition, this zone accommodates residential uses as a secondary use to allow for more housing options.

2.    LI. The Light Industrial (LI) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for clean and quiet industries in proximity to commercial development, including manufacturing, warehousing, and related uses with limited and screened exterior storage. The LI zone establishes a transitional area between commercial and heavy industrial areas; while at the same time it is applied to areas of the City as a freestanding industrial zone. This zone also includes a sub-zone Light Industrial Open (LI-O) where additional uses are permitted. The intent of the LI-O zone is to enable the development of certain commercial uses and to provide appropriate land uses in the areas that transition from industrial to commercial and residential.

3.    HI. The Heavy Industrial (HI) zone applies to areas of the City appropriate for manufacturing and other industrial development and is less restrictive than the Light Industrial (LI) District. Uses with large amounts of exterior storage or processing that generate noise, dust, or other nuisances are included within this category. The Heavy Industrial (HI) zone should be located only in those areas where the relationship to surrounding land use would create fewer problems of compatibility and would not necessitate such stringent regulatory controls. This zone also includes a sub-zone Heavy Industrial Open (HI-O) where additional uses are permitted. The intent of the HI-O zone is to enable the development of certain commercial uses and to provide appropriate land uses in the areas that transition from heavy industrial to light industrial and commercial.

B.    Industrial Zones – Allowed Uses. The allowed land uses of each of the industrial zones are shown in Table 10-40.30.050.B.

End Notes

1.

Front setbacks along streets other than public arterial or collector streets shall use street side lot line setback standard. This includes buildings fronting private streets and shared driveways between parcels.

2.

A conditional use permit shall be required for structures over sixty (60) feet in height.

3.

Retail uses allowed in these industrial zones are subject to the additional GFAR standards. See Section 10-40.30.050(F), Miscellaneous Requirements – LI-O and HI-O Zones.

4.

Where a development includes more than one commercial use, the total commercial floor area shall not exceed the greater of the maximum GFAR areas allowed. The maximum GFAR of the commercial uses allowed is not cumulative. An individual use that has a maximum FAR restriction shall not exceed the GFAR allowed for the use.

Example: A development is proposed with two commercial uses, the first use (Services) has a maximum GFAR restriction of 0.30 and the second use (Office) has maximum GFAR restriction of 0.38. The total maximum GFAR for all commercial use in the development is 0.38 since it is the greater of the two commercial uses. If Service uses of the development are to have a GFAR of 0.30, then the remaining 0.08 GFAR may be used for the Office use. The total maximum GFAR of both uses shall not exceed 0.38, and the Service use shall not exceed 0.30 since it is restricted to a GFAR of 0.30.

5.

The allowed commercial uses in the industrial zone that have a limitation on the max. GFAR are specified in Table 10-40.30.050.B.

6.

The total commercial floor area of a Live/Work development shall be limited to the corresponding commercial use and related max. GFAR specified for the property’s corresponding zone.

7.

Primary structures, excluding accessory structures, with a roof pitch greater than, or equal to, 6:12 shall be allowed an additional five feet above the maximum building height.

8.

The elevator and stairwell bulkheads shall be architecturally integrated with the building. Elevator and stairwells bulkheads are allowed an additional 15 feet above the maximum building height. The Director may approve a height greater than 15 feet when the additional height is necessary to accommodate an elevator or stairwell bulkhead, related equipment, or the requirements of the Building or Fire Code.

9.

Steeples, solar collectors, towers and other unoccupied architectural features are allowed an additional height above the maximum building height equal to 20 percent multiplied by the maximum building height allowed for property’s zone. The total area of the referenced allowances above the building height shall not exceed 20 percent of the total roof area.
