A 50-foot x 136-foot lot at 1009 E. 8th Street can be divided into two lots, though the chairman of the Form Based Code Committee and several neighbors were opposed.
Neighbors said many houses nearby are single-family and they want to keep it that way.
Jason Havron, chairman of the FBC panel, said, "I can see the neighbors' point to keep the size as is. It's just a matter of money is what it is. The developers want to build and develop as much as they can.
However, other members sided with the developers, noting that 67 percent of lots in the block are of the smaller size.
"A lot of this block has already been sub-divided," one member said.
Emily Dixon, staff member, said, "A lot of nice homes would not have been built" had the lots not been sub-divided.
The panel had seven members present - coming after the last meeting had to be cancelled due to the lack of a quorum.
