R-3 TWO-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT

 

(1) Statement of Intent:

The intent of this district is to provide a lot size and associated standards for a homesite which will accommodate the use of a "duplex" housing type. Since the two-family dwelling produces a divergent occupancy pattern from that of the traditional single-family dwelling, duplex zoning-- when desired--should be applied on a district basis, adjacent to, but not within the character of the single-family neighborhood in which it is to be located.

 

(2) Principal Uses:

Two-family and single-family dwellings and Community Living Arrangements defined in 59.97(15), Statutes. In addition, incidental agricultural activities when such a site is utilized as a farm homesite in an A-1 or A-2 District.
