30.8.10 Statement of intent.

This article of the Zoning Ordinance is intended to be applied in areas of the city where group dwellings and apartments, at an average density ranging between twenty (20) and thirty (30) dwelling units per net acre, are the logical and desirable uses, due to environmental conditions and proximity to commercial and community service facilities. It is intended that these areas of high density multiple-family residential use be located appropriately next to high-capacity streets and near services. It is specifically the intent of this section to ensure that R4-zoned properties be intermixed with residential development of other densities and/or commercial properties to ensure that R4-zoned properties are not overly concentrated. The following regulations, except to the extent that they may be modified by a combining district, shall apply to every lot and building in an R4 high density residential district. (Ord. No. 2013-08, § 2 (Exh. A), 8-5-13)

30.8.20 Permitted uses and conditional uses.

Land in the R4 high density residential district may be used as provided in the residential use table, section 30.11.10(c). Conditional uses may be permitted with a conditional use permit, which may be issued by the planning commission in accordance with the regulations in section 30.50.30. (Ord. No. 2013-08, § 2 (Exh. A), 8-5-13)

30.8.30 Site and building requirements.

The lot, yard, height, and additional requirements in the R4 high density residential district shall be as established in the residential site and building requirement table, section 30.11.20(c). (Ord. No. 2013-08, § 2 (Exh. A), 8-5-13)

The minimum site area shall be one (1) dwelling unit per one thousand four hundred fifty-two (1,452) square feet up to a maximum site area of two thousand one hundred seventy-eight (2,178) square feet per unit. (Ord. No. 2013-08, § 2 (Exh. A), 8-5-13)

30.8.50 Site design requirements.

(a) If two (2) or more structures are constructed with less than six (6) feet clearance between them, they shall be considered as one (1) structure for the purpose of this chapter and other ordinances of the City of Gilroy.
