R5 – Urban Family residential

The R5 urban family residential district is intended to provide medium-density residential neighborhoods with single-family characteristics, while allowing considerable latitude in the physical design of housing. The R5 district permits single-family residential housing, duplexes and townhouses. It is adaptable to both established and developing neighborhoods, as well as to transition areas between single-family and multiple-family development. The R5 district recognizes changes in the form of single-family housing and accommodates these changes. As with other residential zones, it requires review and conditional approval of supporting community facilities with greater traffic generating characteristics than the basic allowed residential use.

For Baltimore City, the General Residential Districts say:

R-5 also allows for single-family semi-detached (14.5 units per acre), single-family attached townhouses
(17.4 per acre) and multi-family housing (17.4 per acre). Portions of West Hills and Rognel Heights are
zoned R-5.

For the City of Omaha, where you are, it states that:
