The property is zoned as R-3 Residential. Section 204.2 of Chapter XX, Zoning, of the Mt Lebanon Code identifies “Townhouses” as a Use By Right in the R-3 Single-family residential zoning district. The developer is proposing a condominium-style of ownership with an HOA/Condo Association that owns and maintains all of the common areas of the site, including the shared driveway and stormwater infrastructure.
