Unit Lot Subdivision

This Land Use Code Amendment (LUCA) provides for fee-simple ownership of lots on which townhome dwellings are placed. Allowing for fee-simple ownership of townhomes advances the city’s Affordable Housing Strategy, specifically Strategy B calling for the creation of a variety of housing choices.
