Setbacks Text Amendment

Text Amendment 2020.05

The city council voiced concern regarding spacing between housing units for single family residential lots in newer neighborhoods. This concern was focused on both alley-loaded single family residential lots and street-loaded single-family residential lots. The existing minimum side yard setback for these lots is 20% of the lot width.

The city council and the planning board setback sub-committee toured various neighborhood to examine and share opinions regarding residential setbacks and other neighborhood amenities on Saturday, October 17th.
