R1 - SINGLE-FAMILY
The primary purpose of the R-1 district is to provide a stable environment for single-family homes on lots with ample open space for the enjoyment of privacy and family recreation. The preservation of single-family housing stock within the core neighborhoods of the city, preservation of property values, and protection from encroachment by non-residential uses are key requirements.
R2 - TWO-FAMILY
The R-2 district provides the essential qualities of the single-family district with slightly greater density and lower cost of living than is available in the single-family district. Uses in the R-2 district should be limited to single-family and two-family (duplex) dwellings.
R3 - MULTI-FAMILY
The multi-family district provides affordable medium-to-high density housing in apartments, in areas where access to collector and arterial streets is reasonably close. Multi-family housing is essential for a growing workforce, young families and senior citizens. The R-3 district may be in close proximity to heavy commercial and light industrial uses.
