Do the allowances for Small-Scale Multi-Unit Housing apply within Transit-Oriented Areas?

The City is not required to permit Small-Scale Multi-Unit Housing (SSMUH) development (i.e., 3 to 6 units on a lot) on properties located within a Transit-Oriented Area; however, changes to current zoning may still occur as a direct or indirect result of the implementation of Small-Scale Multi-Unit Housing. Please visit the Small-Scale Multi-Unit Housing implementation webpage for more information.
