This week, the Arlington City Council reviewed and voted on the city’s 2020 Comprehensive Plan Docket. The council approved amendments that bring positive changes to the city’s residential zoning districts and the addition of new districts.

The city stated that the changes are necessary to correctly identify the housing capacities of current residential zones and to provide the correct tools to enable “feathering” of residential capacities by creating additional residential zones. View the new zoning districts and map.

Residential zones now include:

  • Residential Ultra Low Capacity (RULC) allows for one to four dwelling units per acre (4 Du/Ac)
  • Residential Low Capacity (RLC) allows for five to six dwelling units per acre (6 Du/Ac)
  • Residential Moderate Capacity (RMod) allows for seven to 11 dwelling units per acre (11 Du/Ac)
  • Residential Medium Capacity (RMC) allows for 12 to 16 dwelling units per acre (16 Du/Ac)
  • Residential High Capacity (RHC) allows for 17 and greater dwelling units per acre.
