The Land Use Code requires the use of alleys for access in certain zones if the alley is already improved. The alley shall be considered improved for this purpose if it is paved to the width shown below:
Existing Right of Way and Pavement Widths for Alleys to be Considered to be Improved
*When an alley abuts lots in more than one land use zone category, the zone category with the most frontage on that block along both sides of the alley, excluding SF and LDT zones, determines the minimum width. If the categories have equal frontage, the one with the greater width requirement shall be used to determine the minimum alley width.
** This width is solely for the purpose of determining if an alley must be used for access.
