Multi-Family Residential Overlay

The Multi-Family Residential Overlay designation is established to provide options for development of multi-family residential uses on properties that historically have supported commercial uses but which, due to evolving consumer preferences and practices, may no longer be able to attract viable retail or service users. The overlay indicates areas where a change of zoning from commercial to residential can be applied without an amendment to the General Plan land use policy map. The residential zoning district applied will be based upon compatibility with surrounding land uses, property access, and availability of services, among other relevant considerations.

Development Standards: 8.0–80.0 Dwelling Units per Gross Acre
