The City Council has determined that certain land-use applications may have a significant impact on the area character and surroundings of the City of Glen Cove. It would benefit the members of the various boards that review applications, as well as residents of the City, to obtain as much information as possible regarding an application in evaluating the potential impacts of a particular development. The submission of a visual simulation and using representational digital tools will assist decision makers and stakeholders in evaluating applications by:
A. 
Communicating issues by visually simulating them to the public and decision makers;
B. 
Bringing greater accountability and transparency in the public review and decisionmaking process;
C. 
Identifying land-use actions that would benefit from the integration of visual simulation in the review process.
As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
REAL-TIME ANIMATION
An immersive three-dimensional digital model of a place or environment which is dimensionally verifiable. It supports freedom of movement by the viewer by rendering the flow of images as the viewer moves freely though the virtual environment of the three-dimensional digital model. This permits viewers to "walk through" a three-dimensional model at eye-level, look around and choose their own path or location to view a particular development action. All verifiable real-time animations must document the sources used to create the 3D model of existing and proposed conditions.
VERIFIABLE DIGITAL PHOTOMONTAGE
Utilization of photographs to visualize "before" and "simulated after" so that change can be visually assessed at eye-level from a particular viewpoint. Photographs of existing conditions will be merged into an accurate three-dimensional model of the proposed action. It is verifiable because the three-dimensional computer model of the action can be measured and its placement in the terrain checked for accuracy by using references that will appear in both the existing conditions photograph and the proposed conditions verifiable digital photomontage. Nighttime simulation may be required by the appropriate board if the proposal will have an impact on nighttime lighting to the surrounding area. Photographs of existing conditions shall be taken around mid-day when possible (to minimize shadowing) during leaf-off, no-snow conditions using a full-frame digital camera with a 50mm lens. If more than two viewpoints are selected for analysis, one or more digital photographs should be taken with a zoom lens of 85mm or larger. All photosimulations must be accompanied by a key map demonstrating where all viewpoints have been taken and an explanation as to how the photosimulation was performed and document sources used to create the photosimulation of existing and proposed conditions.
The following thresholds shall trigger the requirements for the submission of a visual simulation:
A. 
Any development within the waterfront redevelopment area and/or the MW-1 and MW-3 Zoning Districts that meets the thresholds in Subsections B through G below.
B. 
Any application with an estimated cost of more than $10,000,000 for an exclusively residential use, or any application with an estimated cost of more than $7,500,000 for all other uses.
(1) 
This threshold will not apply for applications for interior alterations which will not alter the footprint of the existing structure or expand the exterior of the existing structure.
C. 
Any application with a height greater than 60 feet.
D. 
Any application that proposes to erect more than 10 residential units.
E. 
Any application that, in the discretion of the Planning Board, Zoning Board, or City Council, requires the submission of a visual simulation due to a potential impact on property values or area character to the City of Glen Cove.
F. 
Any application classified as a "Type I" action under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA).
G. 
An application affecting the exterior of a designated historic building, structure or property.
A. 
Subdivisions.
(1) 
Preliminary plat approval. Upon application for a preliminary plat approval, the applicant shall prepare and submit comprehensive documentation of existing conditions, photographs of the site and its context, a sketch plan of the proposed subdivision, and a dimensioned three-dimensional digital model (real-time animation capable) which meets the following requirements:
(a) 
Existing and proposed topography: A three-dimensional digital model of the existing topography must be submitted and be based on an electronic survey prepared by a licensed surveyor, with two-foot contours. The context area topography not including the subject premises may be constructed from ten-foot contours. An aerial photograph or ortho-photograph (adjusted to the curvature of the earth) shall be draped over to fit the topography. The preliminary site plan may be a "sketch" which shall be scanned and electronically superimposed over the existing topographic conditions without adjustments for grading, retaining walls, and areas and amounts of cut and fill. Viewsheds and view corridors must be identified and presented in digital photographs. All roads and lot lines shall be demonstrated. Sources used to create the existing and proposed topography must be documented.
(b) 
Existing and proposed natural features: Natural features shall be derived from the site survey and be mapped over a three-dimensional topographic model. Depictions shall include generalized tree cover, and specifically include trees over eight inches in diameter, as well as wetlands and streams, rock outcroppings, critical habitats and natural visual resources. Mature trees should be indicated as sticks without branches and foliage. Sources used to create existing and proposed natural features must be documented.
(c) 
Existing and proposed buildings and structures: Proposed structures shall be depicted in an accurate scale for all dimensions as massing models which should include, but not be limited to, floor level lines, roofs, porches and other distinguishing features. These massing models may come from the designer's library. Existing structures in the context area may be derived from the structure's footprint from the Nassau County Geographic Information System (GIS) and extruded to their appropriate height and capped by a generic roof, if appropriate. Sources used to create the existing and proposed building massing structures must be documented.
(2) 
Final plat approval. In addition to the requirements of a preliminary plat approval, the applicant must submit a refined and dimensioned three-dimensional model (real-time animation capable) which must include the following information:

Sources used to create the existing and proposed topography must be documented.
(b) 
Existing and proposed natural features: Existing mature trees that remain should be depicted as actual tree types (e.g., conifers and deciduous trees) with branches and color, but without leaves and those that are removed be depicted as sticks. New trees shall be similarly depicted. Sources used to create the existing and proposed natural features must be documented.
(c) 
Existing and proposed buildings and structures: Existing buildings will be delineated as massing models, but also including roof shapes and other distinguishing architectural features, such as porches. Buildings in the immediate context must include the massing of the buildings, floor level lines, roofs and other distinguishing architectural features (such as porches) to the building. Proposed structures shall be depicted in an accurate scale for all dimensions as massing models which should include, but not be limited to, floor level lines, roofs, porches and other distinguishing architectural features. These massing models may come from the designer's library.

Paper copies of the three-dimensional images must also be submitted to the appropriate board 10 days before the hearing date. Such copies shall provide a fair representation of the application.
D. 
Because software and electronic format systems are subject to change, the appropriate board, at its discretion, may require submission in file formats yet to be identified.
E. 
The City of Glen Cove makes no claim of ownership of submitted digital data, which remains the property of the applicant. The use of submitted digital data shall be limited to the City of Glen Cove for planning and other municipal functions at its discretion. The City will not sell the data to third parties.
This chapter shall apply for all applications filed after the effective date pursuant to law, except for § 266-4A(2); B(2); C; D(2); E(2) and F(2), which shall be applicable immediately to all applications that have not yet received final approval.
