The purposes of the R-2 zone are to:
- Provide for areas with semi-detached dwellings; and
- Protect these areas from invasion by denser types of residential development.
The R-2 zone is intended to provide for areas predominantly developed with semi-detached houses on moderately sized lots that also contain some detached dwellings.
