Editor's Note: The Board of Trustees of the Village of Rockville Centre enacted the Zoning Ordinance, the purposes for which reads as follows:
This ordinance is designed (a) to regulate and restrict the height, number of stories and size of buildings and other structures, the percentage of lot that may be occupied, the size of yards, courts and other open spaces, the density of population and the location and use of buildings, structures and land for trade, residence or other purposes; (b) for such purposes, to divide the Village of Rockville Centre into districts of such number, shape and area as may be deemed best suited to carry out such purposes; (c) to regulate and restrict the erection, construction, reconstruction, alteration, repair or use of buildings, structures or land within such districts, such regulations and restrictions being made in accordance with a Comprehensive Plan and designed to lessen congestion in the streets; (d) to secure safety from fire and other dangers; (e) to promote health and the general welfare; (f) to provide adequate light and air; (g) to prevent the overcrowding of land and to avoid undue concentration of population; (h) to facilitate adequate provisions for transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks and other public improvements. This ordinance is further designed to give consideration to the character of designated districts and their peculiar suitability for particular uses with a view to conserving the value of buildings and encouraging the most appropriate use of land throughout the Village.
