17.24.010 Purpose.

Low-density residential districts provide for a low-density residential environment which may serve to protect steep slopes from over-development or otherwise address environmental constraints. The districts are also applied to areas where provision of full urban services is unlikely to occur due to existing development patterns and topographical restraints (e.g., isolated portions of Sections 6 and 8 of Willamette Heights). The RL-40 district may include agricultural uses and activities. [Ord. 15-21 § 4, 2021; Ord. 21-20 § 8, 2020; Ord. 15-17 § 1 (Exh. A), 2017; Ord. 24-12 § 1 (Exh. A), 2012; Ord. 40-07 § 1, 2007].

17.24.020 Essential use.

The essential use of the low-density residential use districts is a single-family detached dwelling. [Ord. 15-21 § 4, 2021; Ord. 21-20 § 8, 2020; Ord. 15-17 § 1 (Exh. A), 2017; Ord. 24-12 § 1 (Exh. A), 2012; Ord. 40-07 § 1, 2007].
