Intent. Over the years lots have developed in Chubbuck that have <br />been very deep in relation to the lot frontage. Generally these lots have initially <br />provided space for livestock, however, as the owners have aged or moved away, the lot <br />has not been used as originally intended with a resulting large area in the rear of lots not <br />being kept up and free of weeds without enforcement from the City. This results in a <br />diversion of City personnel to enforce weed ordinances and results in inefficient use of <br />land within the City. The City Council believes it to be in the interest of the City and its <br />citizens to not allow deep lots but to instead establish a maximum depth in relation to <br />the lot frontage. <br />Section 2. New Section 18.08.040(C). The following Section 18.08.040(C) shall be <br />added to the Chubbuck Municipal Code: <br />18.08.040(C). Lot Depth to Width Ratio.
