Title

SUBSTITUTE  Amending Sections 28.032(1), 28.039(2), 28.040(2), 28.047(2), 28.048(2), 28.050(2), 28.051(2), 28.053(4), 28.132(2)(g), 28.141(8)(c)5., 16.23(8)(a)8.a.vii., repealing Section 28.131(1)(d), and creating Sec. 28.140(1)(f) of the Madison General Ordinances to allow single family attached dwellings of 5-8 dwelling units.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance amends Chapters 28 (zoning code) and 16 (subdivision regulations) to allow for single-family attached homes on separate lots in the multi-family residential zoning districts. As written, these homes could occur in newly developing areas that have alley access, or, in some cases, in infill areas with private driveway access.  This new housing form will allow individuals to own townhome-style homes as single-family owner-occupied homes instead of as condominiums, which have proven to be difficult to finance and a deterrent to home ownership.  Staff therefore anticipates that this new housing type will fill a housing need that lies somewhere between ownership of single-family detached homes and rental of units in larger apartment buildings.

This Substitute Ordinance is being introduced to include a 300-foot dispersion requirement for single-family attached dwellings in the SR-V1 and TR-V1 Districts.
