Density and Dimensional Requirements. Each use allowed in this district shall at a minimum conform to the
following requirements (in the case of a nonresidential use the residential density requirements shall not

§42-63 (Supplemental Requirements).
Table 2.8. CC Density and Dimensional Requirements
(1) Residential Density (units/acre)
Maximum Impervious Surface (%)
(2) Maximum Floor Area (sq ft)
80,000 or 30,000
Yard Setbacks (feet)
Front or ROW
Maximum Height (feet)
Residential density shall be calculated utilizing the entire acreage of a tract of land. Under this
scenario, residential density shall be determined based on the following formula:
Lot size x allowable units per acre = permitted dwelling units
The following example assumes a 5 acre tract with an allowable density of 16
acres x 16 units per acre = 80 permitted dwelling units
The maximum residential density for portions of the tract with a slope of 60 percent or greater
(where such slope areas of the tract account for ten (10) percent or more of the tract) shall be one-
half (½) the eligible density.
Within a multi-tenant structure/site, the principal tenant shall have a maximum gross floor area of
80,000 square feet. The maximum gross floor area for any other tenant shall be 30,000 square feet.
The maximum gross floor area for a single unit on a single lot shall be 30,000 square feet.
Accessory structures shall be located in side or rear yards and shall be setback a minimum of five (5)
feet from any property line.
