20.14.030 Zoning District Symbols.

In addition to the zoning district designations established under Section 20.14.020 (Zoning Districts Established) and the related development standards established in Part 2 of this title (Zoning Districts, Allowable Land Uses, and Zoning District Standards), symbols are established on the Zoning Map for the purpose of designating floor area ratio limits for nonresidential uses and density limits or the actual number of allowed units for residential uses. When these symbols are placed on the Zoning Map, the floor area ratios, dwelling unit limits or residential densities (minimums and maximums) as indicated shall apply. In addition, individual locations/sites/lots are identified on the Zoning Map by a number symbol where specific development limits and restrictions apply. These development limits/restrictions shall apply in addition to those provided in Part 2 of this title (Zoning Districts, Allowable Land Uses, and Zoning District Standards). The symbols and limits shall be shown in the following manner:

A.    Nonresidential Districts. A number following the district symbol shall designate the maximum floor area ratio allowed for the nonresidential area designated.

Example:

CG 0.5

B.    Residential Districts.

1.    A number following the district symbol designates the minimum site area required per dwelling unit if the requirement differs from the district standard minimum.

Example:

RM (2178)

2.    Two numbers following the district symbol indicates that both the minimum and maximum number of dwelling units are regulated. The first number designates the site area used to calculate the minimum number of units required. The second number designates the site area to be used to calculate the maximum number of dwelling units allowed.

Example:

RM (3100/2420)

3.    A number followed by the DU symbol indicates the maximum number of dwelling units allowed for the area designated. Where two numbers are shown, the first represents the maximum number of units allowed, the second represents the minimum number of units required.

Examples:

RM 50 DU

 

RM 388/300 DU

C.    Mixed-Use Districts. Allowed residential densities and floor area ratios for nonresidential structures in mixed-use districts are not indicated on the Zoning Map, but are provided in the development standards tables for mixed-use districts in Part 2 of this title (Zoning Districts, Allowable Land Uses, and Zoning District Standards).

D.    Anomaly Locations. Anomaly locations shall be designated on the Zoning Map with a reference number that coincides with an anomaly table included on the Zoning Map.

E.    Planned Communities (PC). Each PC District shall be shown on the Zoning Map with a “PC” designator along with a sequential reference number. (Ord. 2010-21 § 1 (Exh. A)(part), 2010)
