Floyds Fork DRO
Jefferson County Division of Planning and Development Services

Clustering of Residential Use

a. Site planning should create cluster patterns of new development whenever possible: building sites and land disturbance activity should be concentrated in portions of the site better suited for development, to minimize disruption of environmentally sensitive areas and to retain the corridor’s rural character. Clustering allows significant portions of the site to remain undeveloped, while achieving an amount of development comparable to traditional site plans and reducing development costs.

b. Preservation of agricultural use, including pastures and sustained yield wood lots, is encouraged.

(NOTE: Cluster developments including lots less than 5 acres in size, with on-lot wastewater disposal, may be approved if designed in accordance with the DRO guidelines.)
