Average residential density surrounding the site is 2.5 dwelling units per acre. The Shawnee Circle subdivision to the west has an average density of four dwelling units per acre.

The site is currently zoned R-1 Residential Zone.

The property is surrounded by lots zoned R-1 Residential Zone. There is a subdivision to the south east which is zoned R-2 Residential Zone. ? There has been no recent zoning activity on this site. Plans/Policies/Regulations.
