A. 
Purpose and intent. The Village of Perry Comprehensive Plan recognizes that the core of residential life in the Village of Perry should be oriented around owner-occupancy of single-family detached homes and that preserving the spectacular 1860s to 1930s architecture of single-family detached homes is important to the long-term vibrancy and prosperity of the Village. The Comprehensive Plan also recognizes that the conversion of these historic single-family detached homes has harmed the character of the neighborhoods and blocks and that this harm to character has resulted in the devaluing of residential property. Since the inception of zoning, a foundational tenant of zoning has been to conserve the value of buildings and property. Therefore, based in the findings of the Comprehensive Plan and foundational intent of zoning, the Residential Conversion Overlay Zone (RCOZ) is created to provide the Village of Perry with a mechanism designed to implement the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan to regulate the conversion of single-family detached residential home into two dwelling units. In doing so, RCOZ is intended to protect and preserve the owner-occupied single-family detached homes, architecture, character, residential life, and property value in the Village of Perry.
B. 
Applicability. The RCOZ only applies as an overlay zone to the R-1 and R-2 Residential Zones and cannot be applied for in any other zoning designation. As an overlay zone, the underlying R-1 and R-2 zoning designations and requirements remain intact and apply to all properties within the R-1 and R-2 Zones, including any parcel designated RCOZ.
C. 
Permitted uses. The only use permitted in the RCOZ is the conversion of an existing single-family detached home into a two-unit residential dwelling.
D. 
General requirements. The following are general requirements for a property requesting the RCOZ to be applied to said property:
(1) 
The property (lot) shall be entirely within the R-1 or R-2 Zone and shall comply with minimum lot size requirements of the R-1 or R-2 Zone.
(2) 
No single-family detached dwelling with a legal or illegal accessory dwelling unit shall be considered for conversion unless the accessory dwelling unit use is abandoned.
(a) 
The applicant shall submit a notarized affidavit stating that the accessory dwelling unit use is abandoned.
(3) 
The existing single-family detached dwelling shall be a minimum of 1,500 square feet.
(4) 
No dwelling, if approved for conversion, shall be less than 700 square feet.
E. 
Submission requirements. The following are submission requirements for properties requesting the RCOZ to be applied to said property:

C. 
Regulations. This chapter applies to both residential subdivisions (the clustering of lots) and residential group developments (the clustering of buildings). In either case, lots or buildings may be grouped or clustered on the cluster site, with no increase in overall density. This is accomplished by density transfer, namely specified reductions in lot and area requirements which are compensated for by an equivalent amount of land in cluster open space.
(1)

(6) 
Zoning.
(a) 
The determination of the Village Board to create a PUD or adjust any regulations or standards shall be based on its review of the preliminary site plan and related documents, the Planning Board's and county's recommendations and matters brought forth at the public hearing. Upon the creation of a PUD, the Zoning Map shall be amended to show the newly created PUD District.
(b) 
Amending the Zoning Map to indicate a PUD does not authorize the issuance of building permits. Such action can only be taken upon approval of the final site plan.
(7) 
Final site plan. The final site plan shall substantially conform to the preliminary site plan that has been approved, incorporating and revisions or other features recommended by the Planning Board and/or Village Board.
