86.09.010 Purpose and intent.

The purpose and intent of this chapter is to provide regulations that preserve and enhance the residential characteristics for those areas so designated on the zoning map of the City. The R-1A(BF) Subzone is a subzone of the R-1A Zone with unique development standards due to the subzone’s unusual location relative to the San Diego Bay and public rights-of-way; topography; lot configurations; and unbuildable portions of the lots. The R-1A(BF) Subzone is intended to provide for neighborhoods consisting of single-family dwelling buildings with a minimum gross lot size of 7,500 square feet of lot area per dwelling unit. Density is six dwelling units per acre. (Ord. 2062 § 2 (Exh. A), 2016)

86.09.020 Permitted and accessory uses.

The following principal uses shall be allowed in the R-1A(BF) Subzone:

A. One single-family dwelling building (to include manufactured housing), on one lot, which conforms to minimum lot area requirements.

B. The following accessory uses are allowed in conjunction with the single-family dwelling building:

1. Incidental home occupations subject to the provisions of Chapter 20.08 CMC.

2. Accessory buildings subject to the provisions of Chapter 86.56 CMC.

3. Off-street parking in conformance with Chapter 86.58 CMC.

C. Residential care facility, supportive housing, and transitional housing. (Ord. 2062 § 2 (Exh. A), 2016)

86.09.030 Measurement standards for “building height,” “grade,” “structural coverage,” “floor area ratio (FAR),” and “depth of lot.”

A. Lots Adjoining the Bay. The property owner of a lot adjoining the bay shall have the option of selecting either the “gross lot area” (as defined in CMC 86.04.325) or the “adjusted lot area,” for the combined purposes of “grade” determination, “structural coverage,” “floor area ratio” (or “FAR”), and “depth of lot” calculation. The “adjusted lot area” of a lot abutting the bay shall be the computed area contained within the lot lines less any panhandle area and less the area bayward from a line across the lot which is established at the discretion of the property owner on natural grade not created by landfill. If the property owner selects the “gross lot area” option, “grade” shall be the average ground level of the center line of First Street and the rear property line. If the property owner of a lot without street frontage selects the “gross lot area” option, “grade” shall be the average ground level of the front and rear property lines. If the property owner selects the “adjusted lot area” option, “grade” shall be the average ground level of the front and rear boundary lines of the “adjusted lot area,” and the “adjusted lot area” shall be used as “gross lot area” for FAR calculation (CMC 86.04.308 and 86.09.050) and structural coverage calculation (CMC 86.04.760 and 86.09.120).

B. Lots Not Adjoining the Bay but Adjoining the Frontage Road. For lots not adjoining the bay but adjoining the frontage road which runs parallel to and north of First Street, the “adjusted lot area” shall be used as “gross lot area” in the calculation of FAR (CMC 86.04.308 and 86.09.050) and structural coverage calculation (CMC 86.04.760 and 86.09.120). The “adjusted lot area” of said frontage road lots shall be the area bounded by the northerly curb of the said frontage road and the side and rear lot lines. However, if the entire lot area is 7,500 square feet or less and the calculated “adjusted lot area” is less than 70 percent of the entire lot area, then 70 percent of the entire lot area shall be used as the “adjusted lot area” for the calculation of FAR and “structural coverage.” “Grade” for said frontage road lots shall be the average ground level of the center line of First Street and the rear property line.

C. Lots Not Adjoining the Bay or the Frontage Road but Adjoining First Street. For lots not adjoining the bay or the frontage road but adjoining First Street, “grade,” “structural coverage” and FAR shall be determined as prescribed by CMC 86.04.308, 86.04.318, 86.04.760, 86.09.050 and 86.09.120. (Ord. 2062 § 2 (Exh. A), 2016)

86.09.040 Height regulations.

A. No building shall have a finished first-story floor or a finished floor directly above an underground parking garage or basement greater than 30 inches above “grade” as defined in CMC 86.04.318.

B. Main Buildings. Main buildings shall not contain more than two stories and shall comply with the following height restrictions:

Main Building Maximum Height Limit

< 3:12 Roof Pitch

3:12 – < 6:12 Roof Pitch

≥ 6:12 Roof Pitch

23 feet.

27.5 feet.

27.5 feet.

Parapet walls may extend to 23.5 feet with 30% of the roof perimeter parapet walls up to 25 feet.

15% of the roof plan area may extend to 30 feet.

A maximum of 60% of the front parapet wall may extend to 25 feet.

 

C.  Accessory Buildings. Accessory buildings shall not contain more than one story and shall comply with the following height restrictions:

Accessory Building Maximum Height Limit

< 3:12 Roof Pitch

3:12 – < 6:12 Roof Pitch

≥ 6:12 Roof Pitch

11 feet.

14 feet, 4 inches.

14 feet, 4 inches.

Parapet walls may extend to 14 feet.

15% of the roof plan area may extend to 15 feet 7 inches.

(Ord. 2062 § 2 (Exh. A), 2016)

86.09.050 Floor area ratio.

Development shall not exceed a base and maximum “floor area ratio” (FAR) in accordance with the following chart and table:

(Ord. 2062 § 2 (Exh. A), 2016)

86.09.060 Lot width required.

There shall be a lot width of not less than 50 feet, except for panhandle portions of lots which shall be permitted in accordance with the Coronado Municipal Code Subdivision Ordinance. (Ord. 2062 § 2 (Exh. A), 2016)

86.09.070 Front yard required.

There shall be a front yard of not less than 25 feet or as may be otherwise specified on a recorded subdivision, record of survey or parcel map recorded prior to the effective date of this title.

The following are exceptions to this requirement:

A. Lots having a depth of 60 feet or less shall have a front yard of not less than 15 percent of the depth of the lot.

B. Where the average front yard setback of a block face is less than 25 feet, the required setback may be computed based on said average in accordance with CMC 86.56.630. (Ord. 2062 § 2 (Exh. A), 2016)

86.09.080 Rear yard required.

A. There shall be a rear yard of not less than 20 percent of the depth of the lot; provided, however, such rear yard need not exceed 15 feet. In addition thereto, there shall be a setback of five feet from any rear property line for accessory buildings and for covered parking which is attached to the main building. That portion of the covered parking which is in the required rear yard and is attached to the main building shall comply with the allowable height for accessory buildings.

B. For lots 110 feet or less in depth and not adjoining the bay, single-family dwelling buildings may extend into the required rear yard a distance of five feet provided the area of such extension does not exceed 25 percent of the required rear yard. In no case shall the rear yard be less than 10 feet at any point. (Ord. 2062 § 2 (Exh. A), 2016)

86.09.090 Side yards.

The following minimum side yards and restrictions shall apply:

A. Lots Adjoining the Bay. There shall be a side yard on one side of a building of not less than 10 percent of the width of the lot; provided, however, that such side yard shall not be less than three feet wide and need not exceed five feet. The opposite side yard shall be designated as a view corridor side yard and shall be not less than 12 feet in width. The view corridor side yard shall, when possible, be on the same side as the adjoining lot’s view corridor or wider side yard and continuous with the view corridor of the adjoining lot located between the subject lot and First Street (if one exists). If the subject lot is of a panhandle shape, said view corridor side yard shall be provided on the panhandle side of the lot. The goal of said view corridor shall be to provide a minimum 20- to 24-foot-wide (depending on lot location) view corridor from First Street to the bay between every two adjacent dwellings. Where an interior side property line is also the rear property line of a lot adjoining the frontage road, a minimum 15-foot side yard shall be provided from said common lot line except for single-story garages limited to 14 feet in height which shall maintain a minimum five-foot side yard from the common lot line.

B. Lots Not Adjoining the Bay. There shall be a side yard on one side of a building of not less than 10 percent of the width of the lot; provided, however, that such side yard shall not be less than three feet wide and need not exceed five feet. The opposite side yard shall be designated as a view corridor side yard. If the subject lot adjoins one or more panhandle-shaped lots which extend to the bay, said view corridor side yard shall be provided on the side of the lot adjoining said panhandle lot and shall be no less than 10 feet in width measured from the midpoint of the combined (one or more) adjoining panhandles with a minimum side yard (from the subject lot’s side property line to the building) of no less than 10 percent of the width of the lot and no less than three to five feet wide (depending on lot width). If not adjoining a panhandle-shaped lot, the view corridor side yard shall be on the same side as the adjoining lot’s view corridor or wider side yard and continuous with the view corridor of the adjoining lot located between the subject lot and the bay and shall be not less than 10 feet in width.
