14.1.E Purpose of the S-LC Lake Area General Commercial District

The S-LC Lake Area General Commercial District is intended to provide sufficient space in appropriate locations for a wide variety of commercial and miscellaneous service activities, generally serving a wide area and located particularly along certain existing major thoroughfares. The district is intended for application in intensely developed areas. Tall buildings are permitted, no front yards are required, and sign regulations are less restrictive than those in other business districts. This district also allows higher residential densities when a project is providing significant public benefits such as long-term affordable housing.
