17.210.010 Purpose.

The urban cluster residential zone is intended to apply to areas that are characterized by large contiguous ownership parcels capable of development as a single, unified project. Clustering of appropriate residential densities in areas most suitable for such development, while simultaneously providing a high level of protection for wetlands, streams, critical aquifer recharge areas and wildlife habitat areas, is encouraged. Flexibility related to site planning and affordable housing through innovative design is also encouraged, as the exact locations of uses should be based on the location of critical areas, transportation corridors, community needs and market conditions.

At the same time, the UCR zone should foster a development pattern that results in the design and construction of an interconnected system of pedestrian and bicycle trails and facilities linking residential neighborhoods with open spaces, recreational areas, transportation corridors and retail and employment opportunities, both within and outside the zone.
