What is a typical lot size?

200 feet

160 feet

436 feet

150 feet

360 feet

2 acres =

87,120 square feet

290 feet

Football Field =

57,600 square feet

1 acre =

43,560 square feet


1 dwelling unit per acre

1 dwelling unit per acre

150 feet

290 feet

Lantern Lane

Cumberland


1 dwelling unit per 2 acres

1 dwelling unit per 2 acres

200 feet

436 feet

Many towns use this minimum lot size to promote rural character. Does it?

Old Field Road

Yarmouth


1 dwelling unit per 5 acres

1 dwelling unit per 5 acres

300 feet

726 feet

Mountain Housing

Newry


3 dwelling units per acre

3 dwelling units per acre

Pearl Street, Camden

Smalls Brook, Cumberland

100 feet

145 feet

This density requires either public sewer service or individual septic tanks with a shared leach field


8 dwelling units per acre

8 dwelling units per acre

70 feet

78 feet

School Street

Brunswick

This is the minimum density to support regular bus service


12 dwelling units per acre

12 dwelling units per acre

40 feet

90 feet

Park Avenue

Northport


Mixed housing types

Mixed Housing Types

90 feet

97 feet

In this development, duplexes are interspersed with single family homes, offering an overall density of 8 dwelling units per acre

Strathglass Park

Rumford


Lessons Learned

Homes on 2 acre lots, or even 5 acre lots, will probably not preserve the “rural character” of your town

It is possible to develop land at a density sufficient to support public transportation using only single family homes, with even more options available when mixing housing types
