Does Lenoir allow multifamily developments?

Yes, multifamily developments are allowed with a Conditional Use Permit in the City of Lenoir. Any residential building with 3 or more residential units is considered "multifamily" - this includes both apartments and condominiums.

Conditional Use Permits for multifamily projects may be approved in the R-9, R-6, O and I, B-1, B-2, B-3, B-4, and B-5 zoning districts. (View a description of the zoning districts (PDF).)
