1 Typical Lot size Density A Visualization Tool

2 Typical Lot size 1 acre = 43,560 square feet 150 feet 290 feet What is a typical lot size? 160 feet 360 feet Football Field = 57,600 square feet 200 feet 436 feet 2 acres = 87,120 square feet

3 Typical Lot size 1 dwelling unit per acre 150 feet 290 feet Lantern Lane Cumberland

4 Typical Lot size 1 dwelling unit per 2 acres Old Field Road Yarmouth 200 feet 436 feet Many towns use this minimum lot size to promote rural character. Does it?

5 Typical Lot size 1 dwelling unit per 5 acres Mountain Housing Newry 300 feet 726 feet

6 Typical Lot size 3 dwelling units per acre 100 feet 145 feet This density requires either public sewer service or individual septic tanks with a shared leach field Pearl Street, CamdenSmalls Brook, Cumberland

7 Typical Lot size 8 dwelling units per acre School Street Brunswick This is the minimum density to support regular bus service 70 feet 78 feet

8 Typical Lot size 12 dwelling units per acre Park Avenue Northport 40 feet 90 feet

9 Typical Lot size Mixed Housing Types Strathglass Park Rumford 90 feet 97 feet In this development, duplexes are interspersed with single family homes, offering an overall density of 8 dwelling units per acre

10 Lessons Learned 1.Homes on 2 acre lots, or even 5 acre lots, will probably not preserve the “rural character” of your town 2.It is possible to develop land at a density sufficient to support public transportation using only single family homes, with even more options available when mixing housing types
