DEFINITIONS AND PURPOSE OF ZONING DISTRICTS AND PREFIX DESIGNATION



AG – Agricultural District



This District is intended to provide a location for principally undeveloped land situated on the fringe of an urban area and used for agricultural purposes, but may become an urban area in the future. Generally, the “AG”, Agricultural District, will be near development; therefore, any agricultural activities conducted in the District, should not be detrimental to urban land uses. The types and intensity of uses permitted in this District encourage and protect agricultural uses until urbanization is warranted and the appropriate change in district classification is made.

RE – Single-Family Residential Estate District



The "RE", Residential Estate Zoning District is designed to promote and encourage a suitable environment for family life on approximately one-half acre and larger parcels of land used only for suburban style single-family homes and their community services and facilities.

R-1 – Single-Family Residential District – 1



This District is considered to be the proper zoning classification for large lot developments, 12,000 square feet or greater, for single-family dwelling use. The District is intended to be composed of single-family dwellings, together with public schools, churches, parks, drainage facilities and access required by the allowed density.

R-2 – Single-Family Residential District – 2



The R-2 District is slightly less restrictive than the RE or R-1 Districts by allowing lots of 10,000 square feet or greater. The principal use of the land is for single family dwellings and related recreational, religious and educational facilities normally required to provide an orderly and attractive residential area.

R-3 – Single-Family Residential District – 3



The R-3 Single-Family Residential District is designed to provide for a suitable residential environment for single-family residents on parcels of land of 8,400 square feet or larger.

R-4 – Single-Family Residential-4



The R-4 District is intended for single-family residential use having a minimum area of 7,200 square feet.

A- Apartment (Multiple-Family) Dwelling District



This Apartment Dwelling District is intended to be comprised of attached dwellings for two or more families with a maximum density of eighteen (18) dwelling units per acre.

C-1 – Commercial District – 1



The C-1 Commercial District provides for retail types of land uses to be located in appropriate areas serving a neighborhood or several neighborhoods and designed as a retail center. Uses are contained wholly within a building or structure.

HO – Highway Oriented District



The HO Highway Oriented District provides for office, retail, and limited service uses to be placed in districts adjacent to I.H. 35 E to service local and regional needs.

C-2 – Commercial District – 2



The C-2 District concentrates business, warehouse and service activities not normally located within retail service centers. Uses may have incidental open storage or outside sales of merchandise.

I – Industrial District



The I-Industrial District provides for a wide range of commercial and industrial uses, all of which should be comparatively nuisance free. The District specifically excludes residences on the bases that the mixture of residential use and public services and facilities for residences with those for industry is contrary to the purpose of these regulations.

PD – Planned Development



The Planned Development District is intended to provide for integrating uses allowed in various districts with appropriate regulations, and to permit greater flexibility in the use and design of land and buildings on sites where modification of specific provisions of this Code is not contrary to its intent and purpose of the Comprehensive Plan and will not be harmful to the surrounding neighborhood.

RAE – Ranchette Estate District



The Ranchette Estate District is designed to promote and encourage a suitable environment for family life on approximately three-quarter (3/4) acre and larger parcels of land used only for suburban style single family homes, with related equestrian, livestock and agricultural uses and their community services and facilities.

FP – Flood Plain Prefix



This Prefix provides regulations for use of land in designated floor plain areas as shown on FEMA mapping.
