Building heights are regulated by the Zoning Ordinance (MMC 10.05). The maximum height for single-family and duplex homes is 30 feet, provided the roof has a slope of at least 3:12. Homes with flatter roofs are limited to a height of 25 feet. Heights for multi-family residential, commercial, and industrial buildings are 40 feet. Height is measured from the highest point of the roof to the closest exterior finished grade level directly below.
