(2) Geographic areas within the boundaries of adopted master plans, small area plans or neighborhood plans which recommend residential development on lots meeting R-4 standards and are further governed by a city adopted pattern book to which any development shall conform.

 

Sec. 7.1-2. - Uses permitted.

 

Uses shall be permitted as set forth in Chapter 2 - Uses Permitted.

 

Sec. 7.1-3. - Height regulations.
