11.1.A Purpose of the HU-RS Single-Family Residential District

The HU-RS Single-Family Residential District is intended to provide for the traditional, pre-World War II single-family residential development. These areas are urban single-family neighborhoods of higher density and smaller setbacks than seen in the post-World War II areas of the City. Limited non-residential uses such as places of worship, historic neighborhood commercial establishments, and recreational facilities that are compatible with surrounding residential neighborhoods may be allowed.
