§42-35.
  Regional Commercial District (RC)
A.
Purpose. The purpose of the Regional Commercial District (RC) is to foster orderly growth where the
principal use of land is commercial. The intent of this district is to allow for commercial development
consistent with the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan. In accordance with the Comprehensive
Plan, the district will allow for and provide commercial development that: (1) includes a variety of retail sales
and services, public and private administrations, offices and all other uses done primarily for sale or profit on
the local, community, and regional level; (2) is directed largely to Community Service Centers as defined in
the Comprehensive Plan; (3) is compatible with adjacent development and the surrounding community; and
(4) will minimize congestion and sprawl. This general use district is meant to be utilized in areas designated
as Urban (USA) in the Comprehensive Plan.
B.
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
apply). In some cases a specific use may be required to meet the Supplemental Requirements as set forth in
§42-63 (Supplemental Requirements).

(1)
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
units/acre:
5 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.
(2)
Accessory structures shall be located in side or rear yards and shall be setback a minimum of five (5)
feet from any property line.
