Olofu Agbaji, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The minimum lot size requirement in the R-2.5 district is 4,000 square foot per lot and 2,500 square foot per unit. The proposed R-5 district has a minimum lot size requirement of 5,000 square foot per lot and 5,000 square foot per unit. The R-2.5 district allows for Multi-unit House residential building type. A multi-unit house is a building containing 3 to 8 dwelling units located on a single lot. Multi-unit houses appear as large detached houses and have only one entrance visible from the street. Multi-unit houses are subject to the lot and building standards of 88-110-06-B (Table 110-2) except as modified or supplemented by the multi-unit house standards of 88-110-06-C. More than one multi-unit house may be located on a single lot, subject to compliance with all applicable lot and building standards. This building type is not permitted under R-5 district. In an effort to restrict the future development of new multifamily structures, as well as the conversion of existing structures to additional multifamily units, the Volker Neighborhood Association is requesting a “downzoning” of the North Volker neighborhood. The neighborhood association is working with the Citywide Division of City Planning and Development Department on the Midtown/ Plaza Area Plan. This plan will make specific land use recommendations on a block by block and often a parcel by parcel basis to make sure that the current zoning conforms to the future land use plan. Ideally, the new districts established by a downzoning should exactly match existing uses, for example, single-family zoning should be applied to only single-family uses. As a practical matter, every downzoning makes some existing uses “nonconforming” in terms of the new district. Following is a matrix that demonstrates the effect of a rezoning from multifamily zoning to single-family zoning.
