Title

Amending Sections 28.042, 28.043, 28.044, 28.045, 28.047, 28.048, 28.050. 28.051 and 28.053 of the Madison General Ordinances to allow a maximum front yard setback of greater than 30 feet in the TR-C1, TR-C2, TR-C3, TR-C4, TR-V1, TR-V2, TR-U1, TR-U2 and TR-P Districts.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  In the specified districts, the current maximum front yard setback is 30 feet.  This amendment will allow front yard setbacks of greater than 30 feet by allowing  a setback of 20% greater than the block average.  This is particularly applicable in areas with deep narrow lots where the homeowner may wish to push the home toward the rear of the lot.  By relating the maximum setback to the block average, this amendment ensures that the homes on the block have similar setbacks.
