Developers can build smaller, cheaper condos and apartments

If developers ever do return to Payson, they will find they can build much smaller, hopefully cheaper, apartments and condos in town.

At least, that’s why the Payson council last week unanimously approved a change in the zoning rules for apartments and multiple-family residences, which could increase the number of units per acre.

Currently, developers can build no more than 18 units per acre in R-3, multi-family zonings.

Under the new rules, they can squeeze as many units onto the parcel as they want, so long as they meet the existing requirements for setbacks, the total percentage of the lot covered by buildings, parking and other restrictions.
