Minimum Lot Size:
The minimum lot size is minimum acreage of a lot that can be approved in a particular zone. Existing lots may be smaller than the minimum lot size in a particular zone, but all new lots must meet the minimum lot size requirements. Increasing the minimum lot size potentially decreases building density. Decreasing the minimum lot size potentially increases density.
Expanding/Decreasing Zoning District:
Expanding or decreasing the size of a zoning district would change the size of the ‘footprint’ of land a district covers. The minimum lot size requirements would remain the same within the district.
Rezoning from Residential to Village:
In effect, the minimum lot size would change from 2 acres to 1 acre if a district were rezoned from Residential to Village.
Other effects of Zoning Districts:
Besides dimensional standards, permitted uses are regulated in each district. Please click here for a listing of uses permitted by right and uses permitted by special exception in each district.
