3.2 Permitted Principal Buildings, Structures & Uses

The tables identify which uses are permitted in which residential zoning districts by which type of permit.

The locations of the zoning districts are depicted on the zoning map. The abbreviations used for the zoning districts are as follows:

  • R-12 R-12 Residence Zone
  • R-8 R-8 Residence Zone
  • R-5.1 R-5.1 Residence Zone
  • R-5.2 R-5.2 Residence Zone
  • RM Multi-Family Residence Zone

The "R" symbol in the table indicates that the use is allowed in that zone by the type of permit indicated in accordance with the standards outlined in these Regulations.

No "R" means the use is not permitted in that zone by that type of permit. Check the other tables since a use may be permitted through a different type of permit.
