unanimously, 6-0 to recommend the zoning of R-1, Single-Family Residential District. At the time of the hearing, the Unified Development Ordinance

Additionally, it raises the number of units allowed per floor from eight (8) to twenty-four (24). This increase will allow for development conducive to the market and trends for multi-family housing within the City and throughout the Southeast.
(4) Amendment to Section 2-6.1.1 will add height requirements and alternate setback requirements for the Activity Center (AC), General Commercial
(CG), Campus (CA), Light Industrial (IL), Heavy Industrial (Ill), and Agricultural/Rural (AR) zoning districts.

The City Fire Department was contacted regarding the proposed text and had no concerns.
