F. 
Architectural Design Review Board.
(1) 
Purpose; findings of fact.
(a) 
The R-4 Low-Density Single-Family Residential - Special Character District is intended to preserve and promote the character, appearances and aesthetics of the Roslyn Pines and Marchant Park neighborhoods and to conserve the property values of those neighborhoods by providing procedures for an architectural review of all land developed and all structures henceforth erected, reconstructed, altered or remodeled in the R-4 District and by so doing to:[2]
[1] 
Encourage good qualities of exterior building design and good appearances and to relate such design and appearances to the sites and surroundings of structures.
[2] 
Preserve the prevailing aesthetic character of the neighborhood and geographic area and to enhance the same by means of complementary structures.
[3] 
Permit originality and resourcefulness in building design and appearances which are appropriate to the sites and surroundings.
[4] 
Promote and encourage good qualities of architectural design and utilization of land in the erection and construction of new structures and the exterior refurbishing, reconstruction or alteration of existing structures.
[5] 
Assure that the design and location of any proposed structure or the addition, alteration or reconstruction of any existing structure is in harmony with the existing topography of its site and/or the existing structure as well as the neighboring geographic area and existing property.
[6] 
Discourage and prevent such design that would adversely affect or cause the diminution in value of neighboring property, whether improved or unimproved.
[7] 
Prevent such design and appearances as are unnecessarily offensive to visual sensibilities, which impair the use, enjoyment, value or desirability of neighboring properties and the health, safety and general welfare of the community at large.
[2]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
(b) 
The Board of Trustees hereby finds it necessary to create a mechanism for architectural review since:
[1] 
Structures which are visually offensive or inappropriate by reason of poor exterior design, poor site layout, monotonous similarity or striking visual discord or dissimilarity in relation to their site or surroundings would mar the appearance of and adversely affect the desirability of the immediate area and neighboring areas.
[2] 
Such structures would discourage and prevent the most appropriate development and utilization of land throughout the R-4 District.
[3] 
Such structures would impair the use, enjoyment and desirability and stability of both improved and unimproved property and are detrimental to the character of neighborhoods, produce degeneration of the values of real property with attendant deterioration of conditions affecting the functioning, economic stability, prosperity, health and safety of the inhabitants of the Village and destroy a proper relationship between the taxable value of real property and the cost of municipal services provided therefor.
(c) 
It is the purpose of this Subsection F to prevent these and other harmful effects and thus to promote the health, safety and general welfare of the community.
(2) 
Delegation of authority. There is hereby created an Architectural Design Review Board consisting of five members who shall serve without compensation. Members of the Board shall be residents of the Village of Roslyn and reside in the R-4 District, and all members of said Board shall be persons qualified by reason of training or experience in architecture, land development, community planning, real estate, landscape architecture or other relevant business or profession or by reason of civic interest and sound judgment to determine the effects of a proposed building or structure (including additions or exterior alterations thereto), a group of buildings or structures or plan of building development on the desirability, property values and development of surrounding areas and the development of the Village as a whole. The members of the Board shall be appointed by the Mayor, subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees. The Mayor shall, upon the enactment of this section and thereafter at the annual organizational meeting, designate the Chairperson and Vice Chairperson of the Board, subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees, and the persons so designated shall serve as Chairperson and Vice Chairperson at the pleasure of the Mayor and Board of Trustees. From and after the effective date of this section, the respective terms of appointed members of the Board, in the order of their appointment, shall be one, two, three, four, and five years. Thereafter, appointments shall be for a term of five years. The Board of Trustees shall have the power to remove any such member for cause.

[3]

Any building may be erected, altered or used for any purpose in this section only after it has been reviewed by the Historic District Board of the Village of Roslyn, as provided for by and in accordance with Article VIII of this chapter.
B. 
Special uses. The following shall be permitted only when authorized as a special use by the Board of Trustees after conducting a public hearing:

In the C-V Village Commercial District, apartments may be permitted above the first floor level in conjunction with ground floor retail or office uses. Such apartments shall meet the following requirements:
(a) 
The gross density shall not exceed 12 units per acre.

At least 25% of the entire tract shall be undeveloped open space, preferably as a single parcel of contiguous open space, and in no case comprised of more than three separate portions of the tract. Such open space shall be preserved in its natural state and used for passive recreation uses, except that paths for walking, bicycling or horseback riding shall be permitted.

(1) 
The maximum density, land use intensity, or coverage of the land with buildings may be less but shall be no greater than that permitted in the underlying districts. Maximum land use intensity shall be inversely proportionate to the steepness of the land so that the steeper the land the fewer the number of dwelling units permissible.
(2)

In the HP-O Hillside Protection Overlay District, the maximum density shall be reduced in accordance with the following table:

[2]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
(5) 
In the review of plats under this section, particular attention shall be given to the preservation and enhancement of existing residences and/or interesting existing and potential views through such techniques as appropriate height, bulk, and spacing of structures, yard and lot coverage and other factors of good site planning.
(6) 
Recognizing that hillside development may often result in highly visible results, particular attention shall be given to aesthetically good and sensitive architectural design so that buildings complement each other and are in keeping with the character of the Village.
(7) 
A standard right-of-way width of 50 feet for any proposed road shall be required. Actual pavement width may be reduced in those cases deemed appropriate and where satisfactory arrangements for drainage, sight distance, safety and private maintenance are provided.
