Title

Amending Sections 28.151, 28.032(1), 28.037(2), 28.039(2), 28.040(2), 28.045(2), 28.047(2), 29.048(2), 28.050(2), and 28.051(2) of the Madison General Ordinances clarifying requirements for the use of two-family twin homes in residential districts.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This amendment clarifies the lot width and lot area requirements for side-by-side duplexes in numerous residential districts, officially known as “two-family twin homes.” The proposed amendment returns the requirements to the form that they were under the old 1966 Zoning Code, which will make it easier for property owners looking to use a Certified Survey Map (CSM) to split their duplex.  This amendment also changes two-family twin homes in TR-V2 from conditional to permitted use, which is consistent with how the use is treated in neighboring districts. Finally, this amendment clarifies the requirements for a split duplex (separate utilities, etc.) and the requirements for two-family twin homes in certain non-residential districts.
