Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  On corner sites, which are often redeveloped with mixed-use buildings, applicants are able to choose which is the side and which is the rear yard.  This amendment will ensure that regardless of which side the applicant chooses, the proposed building will need to be stepped back from residential homes in an adjacent residential district.
