Under the "Project Site" Section, first line, is a field for Density. What are they asking for?
Density means dwelling units per acre. Divide the total units existing or planned for the project by the total site area. This is a measure of the intensity of land use. The lower the units per acre, the less intense the use.
Correct. Also, compare it to the zoning to ascertain legal or legal non conforming.
From the word dense, which has it's roots in Greek (remember My Big Fat Greek Wedding) meaning..."some appraisers". LOL!
Density can also refer to the IQ level of of tenants in the complex using the ratings of dumb, dumber and dumbest. We have our lawyers working on wether or not this is acceptable to FHA. Standby for future unitelligible, doublespeak memos to clarify this situation. Please don't hold your breath.
Density could also mean total building area compared with the total land area. Not to confuse things but to just further clarify. You could have a 40,000 square foot house on a one acre site which would equate to 1 du per acre but the density would be .9183:1. That is a pretty dense site.
For purposes of this report I would follow the other suggestions and report DUs per acre.
Thanks all -- I put Low Density as it is a 4.7 acre site with 16 units. I thought this was correct, but needed to make sure for my own info (sometimes being dense myself).
So you ride yourselves over the fields and you make all your animal deals and
your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.
Who would've guessed that Dennis was a Tull fan?
