    Climate Change In establishing a performance standard we selected three targets for different levels of city density high more than ten residents per acre medium five to ten residents per acre and low fewer than five residents per acre This classification is used to recognize that while one would expect denser areas within a city to have a higher percentage of impervious surface area higher densities in one part of the city can accommodate impervious coverage reductions in other parts of the city Impervious coverage was divided into residential and non residential components Residential parcels were defined as single family and duplex housing types We calculated impervious coverage by adding the areas of building footprints the ground surface area occupied by the building driveways and sidewalks Values for the building footprint areas were provided by the City of Madison Engineering Division and residential driveways and sidewalks were estimated Driveway areas were estimated by multiplying average driveway width by the distance of the building setback from the road Similarly sidewalk areas were estimated by multiplying the width of the lot frontage by the average sidewalk width which was determined through site surveys It should be noted that as residential impervious coverage was not measured directly our calculations are subject to some degree of error Non residential parcels were defined as commercial industrial and multi family land uses Non residential impervious coverage was calculated by adding building footprints parking lot areas walkways and other miscellaneous spaces Like the residential components the footprint parking area and walkway data were provided by the City of Madison Engineering Division Sidewalk area estimates were based on a published average for commercial areas and are measured as an additional four percent of impervious area to the total parcel These estimates are also subject to some degree of
