One of the big differences between a RES3 and a RES4/RES6 designation is that RES4/RES6 allows for "single-family attached" development. These developments include: townhouses, duplexes and quadraplexes.
...additional info on RES3, RES4 and RES6 designations:
RES3 - 2.5 maximum units (ie. homes) per acre; 65 ft minimum lot width; 25 ft minimum front setback; 2,000 square ft minimum heated floor area per unit
RES4 - 3.5; 60 ft; 20 ft; 1,250 square ft
RES6 - 6.0; n/a; 20 ft; 600 square ft
