Please see the Director's interpretation for Narrow Lot Design Guidelines criteria and eligibility: Director's Interpretation(PDF, 299KB)
The Narrow Lot Design Guideline Review is performed to accommodate a variety of development types on existing, non-conforming lots and ensure that development in older neighborhoods, traditionally east of Interstate 635, developed before World War II, maintain the character and vision of these existing communities, through application of traditional architectural and modern landscaping standards
