713.09 Restrictions on bulk and location of buildings and structures, percentage of lot occupancy, and set back building lines.

Whenever any planning commission, board, or officer certifies to the legislative authority any plan for the districting or zoning of the municipal corporation according to the bulk and location of buildings and other structures including percentage of lot occupancy, set back building lines, and area of yards, courts, and other open spaces such legislative authority may, in the interest of the promotion of the public health, safety, convenience, comfort, prosperity, or general welfare, regulate the bulk and location of buildings and other structures thereafter erected or altered, including the percentage of lot occupancy, set back building lines, and the area of yards, courts and other open spaces. For such purposes the legislative authority may divide the municipal corporation into districts of such number, shape, and area as is best suited to carry out the purposes of this section. Any such regulation imposing a smaller percentage of lot occupancy, wider or larger courts, deeper yards, or other more strict limitations than those provided by statute shall, within the district for which it is imposed, prevail over such statute.
