Purpose. Residential 2A (R2A) zone is intended to allow detached housing with accessory dwelling units (ADUs) or duplexes in a more suburban setting.

A large percentage of Austin’s Urban Core is zone R2A. Given the staff’s definition of this zone we have to wonder - why are we encouraging suburban setting in the Urban Core? How does this square with Imagine Austin’s of building a compact and connected city?
