15 Land Use Policy How the Land Use Policy was applied Workshop participants helped to define general areasLand use designations within existing communities include “higher” densities, ranging from RL5 on the low end to H30 on the high endLess 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

17 Land Use PolicyHow the Land Use Policy was applied
18 Land Use Policy and Zoning Connection between Land Use Policy and ZoningLand Use Policy provides the overall framework and general direction for development of a parcelZoning implements Land Use Policy by detailing the specific development standards for individual parcelsZoning has to be consistent with the Land Use Policy
20 Zoning 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 CountyEnsures that the exercise of an individual owner’s property rights does not encroach upon the rights of another property owner
21 Zoning - Current R-1: Single-family Residence Zone R-2: Two-family Residence ZoneR-3: Limited Multiple Residence ZoneR-A: Residential Agricultural ZoneA-1: Light Agriculture ZoneA-2: Heavy Agriculture ZoneC-1: Restricted Business ZoneC-2: Neighborhood Business ZoneC-3: Unlimited Commercial ZoneM-1: Light Manufacturing ZoneM-2: Heavy Manufacturing ZoneD-2: Desert-Mountain ZoneR-R: Resort-Recreation Zone*This is not an inclusive listing of all zones.

28 Land Use Policy and Zoning Density vs Minimum Lot SizeDensity (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 intoMinimum 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)
29 Land Use Policy and Zoning Density vs Minimum Lot SizeSample 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 acres10 ac2 ac34 ac
