Did you know that when determining the maximum number of lots allowed for a proposed subdivision, you use the LESSER of two calculations?
Total lot area(sf)/Minimum Lot Area(sf) =X
Density (units per acre) x acres = X
Here's how the math works...
Lot area = 161,172 sf
Min. lot area = 12,000 sf
161,172/12,000 = 13.43 (13)
Max Density = 11 units/acre
161,172/43,560 = 3.7 acres
11 x 3.7 = 40.7 (40)
In this case, your maximum number of lots is 13.
