Rural Land 2RL2 Maximum 1 du/2 gross ac Rural Land 5RL5 Maximum 1 du/5 gross ac Rural Land 10RL10 Maximum 1 du/10 gross ac Purpose: Single family residences; equestrian and animal uses; and agricultural and related activities. Rural Land 20RL20 Maximum 1 du/20 gross ac Rural Land 40RL40 Maximum 1 du/40 gross ac

13 Land Use Policy Land Use Code Permitte d Density Purpose RESIDENTIAL Residential 2H20–2 du/net ac Purpose: Low-density, single-family residences.

14 Land Use Policy Land UseCode Permitted Density Purpose COMMERCIAL Rural Commercial CR Commercial: Maximum FAR 0.5 Purpose: Limited commercial uses that are compatible with rural, agricultural, and low-intensity visitor-serving recreational activities, including: retail, personal, and professional services; restaurants; general stores; and professional offices. Major Commercial CM Residential: du/net ac Commercial: Maximum FAR 3.0 Mixed Use: du/net ac and FAR 3.0 Purpose: Large and intense commercial uses, such as regional and destination shopping malls and centers, tourist and recreation-related commercial services, hotels, and amusement activities; and multi-family residential and residential- commercial mixed uses.

15 How the Land Use Policy was applied – Workshop participants helped to define general areas – Land use designations within existing communities include higher densities, ranging from RL5 on the low end to H30 on the high end – Less developed areas are based on the Hazards and Environmental Constraints Map where the lowest densities are applied, ranging from RL40 on the low end to RL10 on the high end Land Use Policy

16 How the Land Use Policy was applied – Hazards and Environmental Constraints Map Class I = 1du/10ac Class II = 1du/20ac Class III = 1du/40ac Land Use Policy

17 How the Land Use Policy was applied Land Use Policy

18 Connection between Land Use Policy and Zoning – Land Use Policy provides the overall framework and general direction for development of a parcel – Zoning implements Land Use Policy by detailing the specific development standards for individual parcels – Zoning has to be consistent with the Land Use Policy Land Use Policy and Zoning

19 Zoning Antelope Valley Area Plan Update

20 Determines the permitted uses on a parcel Spells out specific development standards regulating the use of individual parcels (i.e. setbacks, max heights, min lot sizes etc.) Has the force of law; provisions are enforced by the County Ensures that the exercise of an individual owners property rights does not encroach upon the rights of another property owner Zoning

21 R-1: Single-family Residence Zone R-2: Two-family Residence Zone R-3: Limited Multiple Residence Zone R-A: Residential Agricultural Zone A-1: Light Agriculture Zone A-2: Heavy Agriculture Zone C-1: Restricted Business Zone C-2: Neighborhood Business Zone C-3: Unlimited Commercial Zone M-1: Light Manufacturing Zone M-2: Heavy Manufacturing Zone D-2: Desert-Mountain Zone R-R: Resort-Recreation Zone *This is not an inclusive listing of all zones.

28 Density (Land Use Policy) – Determines the number of dwelling units allowed in a given parcel (i.e. RL10 allows 2 units in 20 ac, 4 units in 40 ac, 6 units in 60 ac etc.) – determines the number of parcels a property can be subdivided into Minimum Lot Size (Zoning) – determines the smallest size any one of the resulting parcels can be (i.e. A-2-10,000 = 10,000 sq ft; A-2-2 = 2 acres) Land Use Policy and Zoning Density vs Minimum Lot Size

29 Sample Scenario: 40 ac lot, RL10, A-2-2 * RL10 will allow 4 units in 40 acres * A-2-2 will allow newly subdivided lots as small as 2 acres 10 ac 2 ac 34 ac Land Use Policy and Zoning Density vs Minimum Lot Size
