Lot width and lot area criteria were reviewed from the City of Saratoga Springs SDG Image Mate website. Color coded parcel maps are attached which depict parcel compliance with the zoning code. UR-2 Zoning District Lot requirements: - Min. Lot Width (Average): 60' - Min. Lot Area: 6,600 sq.ft. Summary of findings: 1) Lot Width: 3 of 47 lots (6%) did not meet the 60' min. requirement for lot width but did meet the 6,600 sq.ft. min. requirement for lot area. Corner Lots which met the min. lot width in one direction but not the other were not counted as "non- conformance" as one lot width was compliant. 2) Lot Area: 10 of 47 lots (21%) did not meet the 6,600 sq.ft. min. requirement for lot area but did meet the 60' min. requirement for lot width. 3) Both Lot Width &Lot Area: 27 of 47 lots (57%) did not meet both the min. lot width and min. lot area requirements. 4) Neighborhood Character: 39 of 47 lots (84.3%) researched were non-compliant with lot width and/or lot area requirements. 5) Substantiality: a) Lot Width: 20 of the 47 lots researched (42.5%) had lot widths 50' or less. b) Lot Area: 27 of the 47 lots researched (57%) had lot areas under 6,000 sq.ft. It is the opinion Engineering America Co. and the applicant, that the proposed new lot width at 50' and new lot area at 6,413 sq.ft. are consistent with the majority of the surrounding parcels and should blend well with the existing character of the neighborhood. Thank you for your time and consideration.
