What does adoption of the UDC mean for residential property?

For almost all residential classifications, the updated zoning classifications represent a change in name only. Additionally, in the current code, there are a range of different lot types allowed for each residential classification. In the new UDC, these lot types and associated setbacks will become more uniform and consistent across residential areas. For example, if your home is on a large lot located in an area that allows for smaller lots, under the current code your home might need twice as much setback as your neighbor’s home located on a smaller lot. In the new UDC, both homes will be treated equally, regardless of lot size, as they are located in the same residential classification. Also, townhomes will now have their own zoning classification.
