[1] The Lot Area for Two Family, Townhouse and Multi-Family developments with more than one lot may be calculated by adding the land area of all lots and common areas on which one category of dwellings is located, and dividing the total land area by the total number of dwelling units of that category.  Common areas may be included in the calculation of land area, except for the area within a public or private street right of way; if no right of way is designated to private streets, the area between the backs of curbs of the private street shall be excluded.

[2] In the CBD-2 District, if a detached garage is provided in lieu of an attached garage, or if an attached garage is accessed via an alley, a) on lots 65 feet or less in width, 500 square feet of additional Building Coverage is allowed, and b) on lots more than 65 feet in width, 250 square feet of additional Building Coverage is allowed.

[3] If an existing parking facility is resurfaced or reconstructed, and the parking facility does not meet the current yard requirement, the required yard may be reduced by fifty percent (50%).  If the existing parking facility is set back at a distance greater than fifty percent (50%) of the required yard of the Zoning District, the existing parking facility setback shall not be reduced (See Section 17.24.010A).

[4] Within the zoning districts specified, a Landscape Buffer Yard shall be provided along any lot line that abuts or is across a street from property in any RE, RS, RT or RM District.  See Chapter 17.26 for planting and screening requirements for Landscape Buffers.  Landscape Buffer Yards may include or overlap with other required yards.
