The Fountain Hills Times
The Town Council has approved standards for new canyon-side lot designations within the Town of Fountain Hills.
The new regulations add a section to the Zoning Ordinance to regulate development of single family residential lots where the building footprint sits on a slope of 30 percent or greater.
It would apply to lots only on the downhill side of the street.
The ordinance change also allows for a front side setback reduction of 10 feet from what is specified for the overall zoning district.
