Zoning Map. The boundaries of the above-referenced districts shall be established by the Town Board, which boundaries shall be reflected on a Map, entitled "Zoning Map, Town of Greenburgh (unincorporated)," hereinafter referred to as the "Zoning Map." The official Zoning Map, indicating all amendments adopted by the Town Board, shall be dated and hand signed by the Town Supervisor and by the Commissioner of Community Development and Conservation, shall bear the embossed seal of the Town of Greenburgh thereon, and shall be kept in the office of the Town Clerk. A copy of such map is annexed hereto and incorporated in this chapter. The Zoning Map may only be amended by the Town Board pursuant to § 285-64 of this chapter. For the use and benefit of the public, copies of the official Zoning Map, indicating all amendments adopted by the Town Board, shall, at a minimum, be kept in the office of the Town Clerk, displayed in the offices of the Building Inspector and the Commissioner of Community Development and Conservation, and posted on the Town of Greenburgh's Website.
[Amended 9-12-2012 by L.L. No. 9-2012]
B. 
Boundaries.
(1) 
Except where referenced to a street line or by distance in feet therefrom, the district lines shown on said Zoning Map are intended to follow lot lines or the center lines of streets, railroads, streams or aqueducts or the boundaries of the Town, and, where any such district abuts upon a river, the boundary lines thereof shall be deemed to extend outward to the boundary of the Town in such river. In the case of unsubdivided land or where a district boundary divides a parcel or lot, the location of such boundary, if not indicated by dimensions shown upon such Zoning Map, shall be determined by the use of the scale appearing thereon.
(2) 
In all cases where a district boundary divides a lot in one ownership on the date of the enactment of this chapter and more than 50% of the area of such lot lies in the less restrictive district, the regulations prescribed by this chapter for the less restrictive district may be extended by the Zoning Board of Appeals to such portion of the more restrictive portion of said lot which lies within 30 feet of such district boundary. For purposes of this section, the more restrictive district shall be deemed that district subject to regulations which prohibit the use intended to be made of said lot or which require higher standards with respect to density, coverage, yards, screening, landscaping, lighting, parking, loading and similar requirements.
(3) 
In all cases where a district boundary line is located not farther than 15 feet away from a lot line of record, such boundary line shall be construed to coincide with such lot line.
(4) 
In all other cases where dimensions are not shown on the Map, the location of boundaries shown on the Map shall be determined by the Building Inspector by application of a scale thereto.
(5) 
Where natural or man-made features existing on the ground are at variance with those shown on the Zoning Map or in other circumstances not covered in the subsections above, the district boundaries shall be interpreted by the Zoning Board of Appeals.
To facilitate public understanding of this chapter and for the better administration thereof, the regulations establishing the permitted uses of land and buildings; the limitations on the size of lots, percent of coverage of land by height and maximum size of buildings; required open spaces and all other requirements for each of the districts established by Article III of this chapter are set forth in the schedule designated as "Schedule Controlling Land and Buildings," which is annexed hereto. Such schedule is hereby adopted and declared to be part of this chapter, is hereinafter referred to as the "schedule" and may be amended in the same manner as any other part of this chapter.[1]
[1]
Editor's Note: Said schedule is on file in the Town offices.
[Amended 12-14-1994 by L.L. No. 11-1994]
A. 
Statement of intent and objectives.
(1) 
It is the intent of this Conservation District (CD) to provide performance criteria to assure conservation of natural resources during and after development.
(2) 
A Conservation District shall be an overlay zone over any other zones allowed in the Town.
(3) 
The following objectives will form the basic criteria for evaluating a CD development:
(a) 
A significant natural environmental feature will be conserved, e.g., a forest, wetland, watercourse or water body, steep slopes or rock outcrops.
(b) 
Views of natural features will be preserved along existing roads thereby protecting existing community character.
(c) 
Development patterns will aggregate infrastructure and building, allowing the conservation of natural features and providing economical, compact development.
(d) 
Natural areas may be protected as either common areas or as portions of individual lots; in either event, easements or covenants acceptable to the Town Attorney shall be required specifying the protection offered.
(e) 
The zoning of land to a CD Overlay Zone may occur at the request of the property owner or upon initiative of the Town Board, the request to the Town Board by the Planning Board or the request to the Town Board by the Conservation Advisory Council (CAC).
B. 
Development standards and general requirements.
(1) 
Eligibility standards. All Conservation Districts shall have a minimum parcel area of 2 1/2 acres. Where new public streets are included in the development plan, the areas of the streets may be used in calculating the minimum parcel area.
(2) 
Development plan.
(a) 
A conservation and development plan for overall development of each Conservation District area shall be submitted to the Town in accordance with provisions of Subsection C of this section; Chapter 250, Subdivision Regulations; and Article VIII, Site Plan Approval, of this chapter, as appropriate, and any other relevant sections of the Town Code. If residential, the plan may take advantage of the provisions of § 285-24, PUD Planned Unit Development District. However, in no event shall designation of a CD Zone convey a right to a PUD. The Town reserves the right in all cases to evaluate desirability of rezoning for use density or PUD. Each Conservation District shall be planned to complement adjacent conservation districts and/or planned developments to the satisfaction of the Town.
(b) 
Permitted uses shall be all uses allowed in the underlying zones.
(c) 
Permitted accessory uses shall be accessory uses permitted in the underlying zones.
(d) 
Area requirements.
[1] 
Residential density or maximum floor area ratio (FAR) and other area requirements of underlying zones shall apply to all proposed development unless CD Zone requirements are more stringent, in which case CD Zone requirements shall override those of other zones.
[2] 
When a PUD rezone accompanies a CD Zone, PUD requirements of minimum site area and minimum number of units shall be waived to allow PUD standards to apply to the minimum Conservation District site area. However, the Town Board and/or the Planning Board in each individual application reserves the right to require specific housing types, such as but not limited to single-family detached, semiattached, townhouses or apartments.
(e) 
Off-street parking and loading. Off-street parking and loading shall be provided in accordance with the ratios established in § 285-38 of this chapter.
[Amended 8-13-1996 by L.L. No. 7-1996; 4-29-1997 by L.L. No. 6-1997]
(f) 
Common property. All common property, if provided, shall be restricted and maintained in a manner acceptable to the Town Attorney and shall follow the alternatives outlined in § 285-24B(2) when the underlying use is residential.

All minimum state or federal setback and buffer standards shall apply to natural areas, e.g., DEC one-hundred-foot wetland buffer. In addition, there shall be twenty-five-foot minimum buffers provided along both sides of any stream or water body, which may be increased for more environmentally sensitive water bodies.
(b) 
Notwithstanding any other provisions of zoning districts in the Town of Greenburgh, a CD may require the following setbacks in conserving natural features identified in the plan:

Uses under special permit by Town Board.
(a) 
Agency group homes. In accordance with the purposes of this chapter as set forth in Article I hereof and in furtherance of the policy of the State of New York to deinstitutionalize those persons who cannot be cared for in their natural homes by placing them in small, dispersed group homes which are designed to give an outwardly similar appearance to other one-family dwellings, the following regulations shall apply:

[4] 
For purposes of furthering the state's dispersal and deinstitutionalization policy, to prevent the undue concentration of agency group homes in any one area, and to preserve the social as well as the physical character of one-family residential neighborhoods, no agency group home shall be established if any portion of the lot in which said facility is situated is within 2,000 feet of any portion of any other lot on which another group home is situated.

[8] 
The procedure for the granting of a special permit by the Town Board shall follow § 285-25A(4)(h).

Any change in the nature, size or type of the operation of any approved group home shall be subject to a complete new application for a special permit in accordance with the same standards and procedures as required for the original application.
[10] 
In the performance of his duties, the Building Inspector and his duly authorized representatives shall have the right, during daylight hours, to enter and inspect any building, structure and land for which a special permit has been issued.

A. 
Statement of intent and objectives.
(1) 
It is the intent of this Planned Unit Development (PUD) District to provide performance criteria in the context of flexible use and design regulations so that self-contained residential neighborhoods of varying scales may be developed, incorporating a variety of residential types and related nonresidential uses and containing both individual building sites and common property which are planned and developed as a unit.
(2) 
Where planned unit development techniques are deemed appropriate, the rezoning of land to a Planned Unit Development District by the Town Board replaces the use and dimensional specifications contained elsewhere in this chapter by an approval process in which an approved plan becomes the basis for continuing land use controls during the development period and thereafter.
(3) 
Among the objectives which should be achieved through use of the planned unit development technique are the following:
(a) 
The creative use of land so as to establish a more desirable living environment than would be possible through the strict application of other sections of this chapter.
(b) 
The preservation of water bodies, wetlands, steep slopes, hilltops, ridgelines, major stands of trees, outstanding natural topography, significant geological features and other areas of scenic and ecological values and the prevention of soil erosion and the minimization of flood hazard.
(c) 
An efficient use of the land so as to facilitate the adequate and economical provision and maintenance of streets and drainage facilities for future residential developments on the major remaining undeveloped lands in the Town so as to promote the public health, safety and welfare and minimize potential pollution hazards.
(d) 
Innovation, flexibility and variety in the type, design and layout of residential housing so as to permit greater variety in the choice of housing type, living environment, occupancy tenure and housing cost.
(e) 
The maximum provision of community, recreational and other service facilities as integral parts of newly constructed residential communities.
(f) 
A development pattern in harmony with the planning objectives of the Town.
B. 
Development standards and general requirements.
(1) 
Use and density standards.
(a) 
Minimum site area. The minimum site area for a planned unit development shall be a parcel of land adequate in size to accommodate 50 dwelling units, as determined in accordance with the provisions for establishing density as set forth in § 285-24B(1)(e) hereof, but in no case shall the minimum site area be less than 15 acres.
(b) 
Ownership. The land proposed for a planned unit development may be owned by one or more persons or corporations but shall be combined into a single contiguous parcel of land at or prior to the time of application to the Town Board. The application shall be jointly submitted by all owners and, if approved, shall be jointly binding on all of them.
(c) 
Permitted principal uses.
[1] 
Dwelling units of all types.
(d) 
Permitted accessory uses.
[1] 
Accessory uses permitted in the R-10 District as specified in § 285-14A(3) of this chapter.
[2] 
Other accessory uses specifically related to the planned unit development, including but not limited to storage and maintenance buildings, recreation buildings and uses, clubhouses, management offices and utility structures serving the planned unit development. Antenna(s), where permitted, shall comply with the conditions set forth in § 285-37 of this chapter.
[Amended 8-13-1996 by L.L. No. 7-1996; 4-29-1997 by L.L. No. 6-1997]
[3] 
Common dining, laundry, security and housekeeping facilities, principally for the use of residents, in conjunction with dwelling units occupied as independent living facilities.
[Added 10-14-1992 by L.L. No. 6-1992]
(e) 
Residential density and standards.
[1] 
Density. The maximum number of dwelling units in a planned unit development shall be determined by dividing the total land area by the normally required minimum lot size for the zoning district in which it is located and subtracting 25%.
[Amended 12-10-1985]
[2] 
Building types. The type of residential dwelling units permitted with a planned unit development shall be detached, semidetached and/or attached buildings and shall be subject to the conditions set forth below.
[3] 
Landscaped open spaces.
[a] 
Landscaped open spaces or open areas left substantially in their natural state shall be provided at a ratio of not less than 500 square feet of open space for every bedroom proposed in the planned unit development. Under site plan approval, the Planning Board may require that as much as 20% of the total gross acreage of such open space be provided in the form of suitable open space.
[b] 
A portion of the open space may be required by the Planning Board for active recreational uses for the residents and guests of a planned unit development. The size, shape, access, location, buffer and uses of such area shall be determined by the Planning Board during planned unit development review, site plan review or both.
[4] 
Distance between principal buildings. At a minimum, the distance between principal buildings shall be not less than the average height of principal buildings; except when principal buildings are single-family detached dwellings, the distance between principal buildings shall be no less than 15 feet.
[Amended 6-11-1997 by L.L. No. 7-1997]
[5] 
Buffer areas.
[Amended 6-11-1997 by L.L. No. 7-1997]
[a] 
A buffer area shall be provided along the property line of the planned unit development, including all street lines. The buffer shall be a minimum of 75 feet in depth, except when the planned unit development is comprised of single-family detached homes; in which instance, the minimum depth shall be 25 feet; however, no building shall be closer than 50 feet to the PUD property line. When a PUD is comprised of both single-family and multifamily homes, a twenty-five-foot buffer will be required where the single-family homes abut property outside the PUD, and a seventy-five-foot buffer will be required where multifamily homes abut property outside the PUD. The buffer shall be measured inward from the property line and shall be suitably landscaped with grass and shrubs, trees or other ground cover or such screening as the Planning Board may prescribe. No parking area and no principal or accessory building or use shall be located in the buffer area, but accessways serving the planned unit development shall be permitted.
[b] 
The Planning Board may require increased perimeter setbacks beyond that required by § 285-24B(1)(e)[5][a], above, whenever it determines that they are warranted by the topography, the nature of the existing vegetation or the relationship to and impact on neighboring properties and land uses.
(f) 
Off-street parking and loading.
[1] 
Off-street parking and loading shall be provided in accordance with the ratios established in § 285-38 of this chapter.
[Amended 8-13-1996 by L.L. No. 7-1996]
(g) 
Design considerations. The following design elements shall be considered by the Planning Board in addition to the specific provisions of the land subdivision regulations and the normal factors examined in the development plan review:
[1] 
Visual privacy shall be assured for residents of the planned unit development through the proper design of rear yards and/or patio spaces. Proper screening through the use of vegetation, fencing and partially or fully enclosed patios shall be provided.
[2] 
Audio privacy shall be maintained by requiring proper standards for party walls that will satisfactorily limit sound transmission between adjoining dwelling units. Such standards shall be to the satisfaction of the Building Inspector.
[3] 
A maximum of six dwelling units may be permitted in any single grouping of attached dwellings.
[4] 
Any building or accessory building shall be set back a minimum of 25 feet from any principal interior planned unit development street intended to carry through traffic and not to provide direct access to buildings.
(2) 
Common property.
(a) 
Common property in a planned unit development is a parcel or parcels of land, together with all improvements thereon, the use and enjoyment of which shall be preserved by a right and easement of use and enjoyment thereto, which right and easement shall be appurtenant to and pass with the title to each dwelling unit, whether such title be in fee simple absolute or represented by shares in a cooperative organization. If any portion of land comprising the common property is, prior to April 8, 1981, being used by a membership club, such use by such membership club, including nonowner/nonoccupant members thereof, may be permitted, provided that:
[1] 
Owners and occupants of the individual dwelling units are offered automatic admittance to the membership club on an equal basis and status with the nonowner/nonoccupant members; and
[2] 
The rules, regulations and bylaws of such membership clubs shall comply with all applicable state and local laws prohibiting discrimination.
(b) 
Homeowners' association. Where common property exists, the ownership, maintenance and preservation of such property shall be permanently assured to the satisfaction of the Planning Board by the filing of appropriate easements, covenants and restrictions and through a private land trust or association of all property owners (hereafter "homeowners' association" or "HOA") established in accordance with applicable law and pursuant to the following requirements:
[1] 
The HOA certificate of incorporation, the bylaws and the organization's declaration of restrictions must be submitted to the office of the Town Attorney and the Planning Board for approval before final site plan approval may be granted. They shall clearly provide:
[a] 
That the HOA will take responsibility for all insurance, taxes, governmental assessments, utility costs, maintenance, operation, repair and the management of the common property, including recreational facilities and other amenities.
[b] 
That a capital reserve fund for future major maintenance and repair will be created.
[c] 
That homeowners will be gradually exposed to and begin to participate in the management obligations of the HOA well in advance of their majority control thereof.
[d] 
That the assessments levied by the HOA against each unit owner will be determined by taking into account actual costs of insurance, maintenance, management, taxes and other governmental and utility assessments.
[e] 
What the initial developer's contribution will be and how it is to be arrived at up through the time of homeowner control.
[f] 
That the assessments should be at all times accurate reflections of all costs referable to the common property.
[g] 
That membership in the HOA will be mandatory for all unit owners within the planned unit development.
[h] 
That the assessments levied by the HOA which are unpaid in excess of 60 days shall become both a lien on each individual title and a personal obligation against each unit owner.
[2] 
The HOA must be formed prior to the issuance of a building permit for the first dwelling unit. The HOA must be formed pursuant to the applicable regulations promulgated by the New York State Attorney General's Office, as set forth herein. The HOA must be formed as either a homeowners' association pursuant to Title 13 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations, Part 22; a condominium pursuant to Title 13 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations, Part 20; or a cooperative pursuant to Title 13 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations, Part 21. All requirements in this chapter for HOAs shall be equally applicable to homeowners' associations, condominiums and cooperatives.
[Amended 5-8-1985]
[3] 
Where there is to be a lease of any portion of the common property, it must be submitted for approval to the office of the Town Attorney and the Planning Board, which will examine the relationship of the lease to the HOA with regard to rights of use and access by the unit owners in and to the common property.
[4] 
The developer shall convey unencumbered title to the common property in fee simple absolute to the HOA when the first unit is conveyed and shall send a copy of the recorded common property deed to the Planning Board, the office of the Town Attorney and the Assessor.
[5] 
The developer shall relinquish control of the HOA to the unit owners no later than the earlier of three years after the conveyance of the first unit or after 50% of the units are conveyed.
[6] 
The HOA shall not be dissolved.
[7] 
The HOA shall not dispose of or convey any common property for any uses other than those specified in the approved planned unit development site plan and as amended.
(c) 
Planned unit development deed restrictions.
[1] 
The developer shall, prior to final approval and as a condition thereof, designate common property. The common property shall consist of all land contained within the planned unit development which is not to be developed for residential units. Such areas shall include but not be limited to all roadways, recreation facilities, common accessways, buffer zones and open space areas within the planned unit development and shall be duly noted as such on the site plan map filed prior to site plan approval, which map shall also include a separate listing of all site plan approval conditions. The filed map shall be referred to by its filing number in the deed restriction and incorporated by reference therein.
[2] 
As a future condition of approval, the Town Board shall require that any deed granted by the developer with respect to the residential units in the planned unit development shall contain a clause or clauses which create permanent rights of use and enjoyment in the designated common property and easements for the same which shall be appurtenant to each unit and benefit the owners thereof.
[3] 
In addition, each deed granted by the developer shall contain a restrictive covenant, in recordable form satisfactory to the office of the Town Attorney, restricting the disposal or conveyance of the common property for any purpose other than those specified in the approved planned unit development site plan. The covenants as set forth above shall inure to the benefit of each individual purchaser of a residential unit within the planned unit development and shall further name the Town of Greenburgh as third-party beneficiary for enforcement purposes and shall prohibit the extinguishment of said covenants.
[4] 
The Town's emergency maintenance rights in and to the common property as described in § 285-24B(2)(d) shall also be included in the deed restriction.
[5] 
All mortgages, leases and similar encumbrances on the common property shall be subordinate to the deed restrictions and shall be reviewed by the office of the Town Attorney to assure that they are actually subordinate thereto. In order to facilitate this review, the developer shall submit a full title report on the premises to the office of the Town Attorney when the site plan application is submitted.
[6] 
Prior to final site plan approval, the developer shall file a separate declaration of restrictions, thus encumbering the common property in the planned unit development coincident with final site plan approval and prior to any development thereon. In the event that the developer is a contract vendee for all or part of the site, such declaration of restrictions shall be filed simultaneously with the title closing on the site or part thereof.
[7] 
The permanent rights of use and access and the restrictive covenants described herein shall run with the land, and no site plan shall be approved by the Planning Board without the prior approval of the language and form of all documents describing such rights, covenants and restrictions by the office of the Town Attorney.
(d) 
Town's emergency maintenance rights.
[1] 
In the event that the HOA established to own and maintain common property, or any successor organization, shall at any time after establishment of the planned unit development fail to maintain the common property in reasonable order and condition in accordance with the plan, the Town of Greenburgh may serve written notice upon such organization or upon the residents and the owners of the planned unit development, setting forth the manner in which the organization has failed to maintain the common property in reasonable condition, and said notice shall include a demand that such deficiencies of maintenance be cured within 30 days thereof and shall state the date and place of a hearing thereon which shall be held within 14 days of the notice. At such hearing, the Town of Greenburgh may modify the terms of the original notice as to the deficiencies and may give an extension of time within which they shall be cured. If the deficiencies set forth in the original notice or in the modifications thereof shall not be cured within said 30 days of any extension thereof, the Town, in order to preserve the taxable values of the properties within the planned unit development and to prevent the common property from becoming a public nuisance, may enter upon said common open space and maintain the same for a period of one year. Said entry and maintenance shall not vest in the public any rights to use the common open space except when the same is voluntarily dedicated to the public by the residents and owners and accepted by the Town Board after public hearing thereon. Before the expiration of said year, the municipality shall, upon its initiative or upon request of the organization theretofore responsible for the maintenance of the common property, call a public hearing upon notice to such organization or to the residents and owners of the planned unit development to be held by the Town, at which hearing such organization or the residents and owners of the planned unit development shall show cause why such maintenance by the Town of Greenburgh shall not, at the election of the Town of Greenburgh, continue for the succeeding year. If the Town shall determine that such organization is ready and able to maintain said common property in reasonable condition, it shall cease to maintain said common property at the end of said year. If the Town shall determine such organization is not ready and able to maintain said common property, it may continue to maintain said property for the next succeeding year, subject to a similar hearing and determination in each year thereafter.
[2] 
The cost of such maintenance by the Town shall be assessed, equally, against the properties within the planned unit development that have a right to enjoyment of the common property and shall become a tax lien on said properties. The municipality, at the time of entering upon said common property for the purpose of maintenance, shall file a notice of such lien in the office of the County Clerk upon the properties affected by such lien within the planned unit development.
[3] 
Subsection B(2)(d) shall be included in the planned unit development deed restriction.
(3) 
Site and structure requirements.
(a) 
Natural features, such as streams, rock outcrops, topsoil, trees and shrubs shall be preserved and incorporated in the landscaping of the development.
(b) 
Where adequate surface drainage is not possible by grading alone, a supplementary drainage system, approved by the Town of Greenburgh, shall be required.
(c) 
To improve the quality of the environment and to reduce inconvenience during bad weather, all electrical and telephone distribution lines shall be installed underground.
(d) 
Minimum lot size or frontages, building dimensions, shape and location and maximum percentage of coverage are not specified herein. In reviewing any application for a planned unit development, the Planning Board shall be guided by standards set elsewhere in this chapter for comparable uses and by common good planning practice to the extent that the resulting development shall be compatible with the surroundings and to assure the stability of the uses proposed to be developed on the site.
(e) 
No structure shall exceed 2 1/2 stories and 25 feet in height.
(f) 
The right-of-way and pavement widths for internal roads shall be determined from sound planning and engineering standards to be adequate and sufficient in size, location and design to accommodate the maximum traffic, parking and loading needs and the access of fire-fighting equipment and police or emergency vehicles. The pavement of said roads shall be not less than 24 feet wide. All streets shall be subject to all other applicable Town ordinances.
(g) 
The developer shall provide all necessary fire hydrants, refuse disposal facilities, water and sewer facilities, storm drainage, paved road access, paved parking and loading facilities and off-street lighting, making reasonable provision for utility service connections with adjoining properties in other ownerships.
(h) 
Parking and loading areas, refuse disposal facilities and other accessory uses within the planned unit development shall be located so as to be compatible with nearby residential uses. Such uses shall be adequately screened and buffered where adjacent to residential development.
(i) 
All utilities and drainage facilities shall be built to the satisfaction of the Town Engineer.
(j) 
None of the other provisions of this chapter dealing with the requirements set forth in Subsection B(3)(a) through (h) shall apply, but they may serve as a general guide to the Planning Board in its review of development plans.
C. 
Performance guaranty. The Planning Board may require that public improvements, recreational facilities and landscaping be secured by a performance guaranty in the same manner as prescribed in the Town subdivision regulations. Utilities, drainage facilities and roadways shall also be subject to performance guaranties if the Planning Board makes a written determination that it will be in the public interest to do so.
D. 
Application procedure and approval process.

The Town Board shall, upon receipt of said petition, refer the planned unit development request to the Planning Board for a report and recommendation in accordance with procedures as established in Subsection D(4) of this section.
(2) 
Application for sketch plan approval. In order to allow the Planning Board and the developer to reach an understanding on the basic design requirements, the developer shall submit a sketch plan of this proposal to said Board. The sketch plan shall be drawn to scale, though it need not be to the precision of a finished engineering drawing or a site plan. Said sketch plan shall include all items listed in Subsection D(2)(a) below:

(d) 
The Secretary to the Planning Board shall certify when all of the necessary application material has been presented, and the Planning Board shall submit its report within 90 days of such certification, unless, within such 90 days, the Planning Board shall determine that, by reason of complexity of the questions presented or like considerations, an additional period of time, not exceeding 30 days, is reasonably required for the proper disposition thereof. If no report has been rendered after 90 days or such additional period not exceeding 30 days, the applicant may proceed as if a favorable report were given to the Town Board.

The PED promotes economic and efficient use of land, consistent with the preparation and adoption of a Land Use Plan for the entire PED site. The PED District regulations are designed to give the developer knowledge of the general type of development permitted before the completion of a detailed design for every building or parcel, while providing the Town with assurances that the overall development will be satisfactorily planned and constructed within the framework of an overall Land Use Plan for the entire PED-zoned parcel.
(2) 
In certain locations in the Town, the PED can be used to promote research and development (R&D) uses with an R&D Bonus. The Town Board shall have the discretion to approve R&D density bonuses in its review of each zoning application under PED, if applicable.

Editor's Note: Former § 285-29, regarding the CA Central Avenue Mixed-Use Impact District, was redesignated as § 285-29.1 10-2-2001 by L.L. No. 13-2001.
A. 
Statement of purpose and intent.
(1) 
The Central Avenue Mixed-Use Impact (CA) District is based upon the objectives and findings of the Comprehensive Development Program for the Central Avenue Corridor, dated October 1976.
(2) 
The principal intent of the Central Avenue Mixed-Use Impact (CA) District is to relate the maximum density of development permitted for the Central Avenue Corridor as a whole to the present traffic-carrying capacity of the road and its intersections as well as to future improvements which will increase the traffic-carrying capacity (including allowances for existing traffic, traffic generated from new development and other traffic affecting the Central Avenue Corridor) as well as to economic, environmental and other impact factors.
(3) 
The intent of the Central Avenue Mixed-Use Impact (CA) District is also to permit flexibility in the design and development of individual sites so that a mixture of various compatible types of land uses can be developed as multiple use developments at the discretion of the individual property owner. Thus, the external traffic impacts will be thereby reduced, and, therefore, an adjustment is made in the maximum intensity of development to account for this reduced impact.
(4) 
In addition to balancing the traffic-carrying capacity of the road with future development, the Central Avenue Mixed-Use Impact (CA) District also takes into account the relationships between land use intensity and municipal services required, education costs and resources, land values, existing development per acre and the visual and aesthetic implications of various uses.
B.

Central Avenue facade and signage regulations.
[Added 9-25-1996 by L.L. No. 10-1996]
(a) 
Unified plan design. Any signage approved under this section must be in conformance with a unified facade, wall sign, landscape and yard sign plan, the "unified plan," for purposes of this chapter. All unified plans will be subject to provisions of Article VIII, Site Plan Approval, of the Greenburgh Zoning Code and will be subject to any other applicable regulations of the Town or other agencies with approval authority. The unified plan shall be a required component of any development application. The unified plan shall demonstrate the following criteria to the satisfaction of the Planning Board or, when meeting the criteria of the site plan exemption provisions of § 285-56D, shall satisfy the signatory individuals that:
[1] 
Building facades shall be in good repair. Individual building facades shall be coordinated in design and shall be complimentary to adjacent facades. The Planning Board may require other features, such as articulated rooflines, screening of rooftop or yard-located utilities or use of certain materials, as appropriate to achieve a harmonious relationship among facades on Central Avenue.
[2] 
Building wall signs shall be grouped in sign bands of uniform height, both above ground and within the sign bands. When some specific overall design objective is demonstrated which contributes to a more harmonious arrangement, these sign band regulations may be modified to accommodate approved designs.
[3] 
Landscaped areas along the street frontage must conform to all provisions of § 285-29.1D.
[4] 
Yard sign(s) shall be located only in front yard landscaped areas, with open sight lines for optimal viewing by passing motorists, and shall comply with the provisions of Subsection B(8)(b) below.

Yard sign design standards. The following design standards shall apply to all new yard signs in the Central Avenue Mixed-Use Impact District and shall supersede all conflicting provisions of Chapter 240:
[1] 
All yard signs shall display, at the top of the sign, the building or business(es) address number, as appropriate. Addresses shall not be included in calculation of sign size.
[2] 
All sign lettering shall be a minimum of eight inches in height and shall have a minimum two-inch-letter-line width. Sign panels shall have uniformly colored backgrounds and shall be placed in an approved arrangement. In no event shall signs be allowed to interfere with necessary motor vehicle sight distances or to otherwise provide a distraction that may cause a negative impact on traffic safety.
[3] 
Yard signs shall not exceed 12 feet in height, above ground, by six feet in width, including posts. Sign panels shall have a minimum ground clearance of six feet. Exceptions for signs mounted at a lower height shall be made by the Planning Board only upon the recommendation of the Building Inspector, the Commissioner of Community Development and Conservation and the Town Engineer.
[4] 
No individual sign shall be greater than 30 square feet in size. Where the provisions of Chapter 240 allow a sign up to 50 square feet in area, said area shall be divided into two separate signs otherwise meeting all other provisions of this section.
(c) 
Unified shopping center signs. When the front yard facade of a building in a Unified Shopping Center on Central Avenue is 100 feet or more from the Central Avenue curbline and when that lot has a landscaped island of a minimum width of 20 feet separating it from the Avenue, the provisions of Chapter 240 may be modified to meet the following design standards:
[1] 
All wall signs may be increased by 10% in area over otherwise allowable sizes.
[2] 
The number and/or area of yard signs may be increased to accommodate separate name bands for each retail business which occupies 750 square feet or more and for each office use of 1,500 square feet or more of floor area.
[3] 
When a building or shopping center advertises its name on a yard sign, in addition to the individual businesses, the building name shall not exceed in size twice that of any business when displayed on no more than one yard sign. When an approved unified plan yields more than one yard sign and the building or shopping center name is placed on more than one yard sign, said name shall be no more than 50% larger than that of any business. All new yard signs shall provide for three square feet of sign area, for individual businesses. No individual business name shall be placed on more than one yard sign. Business and building or shopping center names shall be aggregated onto the minimum possible number of yard signs.
[4] 
No greater yard or wall sign area shall be allowed for buildings with only office uses from that area stipulated in Chapter 240.
[5] 
When the total allowable yard sign area exceeds what would otherwise be allowed under Chapter 240, said area shall not exceed the total area resulting from the sum of all building and business name spaces as set forth in this subsection.

A. 
Statement of intent and objectives.
(1) 
It is the intent of this PD Nonresidential Planned Development District to permit flexibility in the design and development of office, warehousing and industrial park developments. It is further intended to promote the economic and efficient use of land by permitting commercial uses within a basically industrial park development. The planned development regulations are designed to give the developer a knowledge of the general type of development permitted before the completion of detailed design for every building or parcel, while providing the Town with assurances that the overall industrial park development will be satisfactorily planned and constructed within the framework of an overall conceptual plan for the entire tract.
(2) 
The Town Board further declares that this intent cannot be achieved through the use of traditional bulk and use zoning and subdivision regulations, the application of which to substantial tracts of land may be inimical to the ability of the Town to take full advantage of the most advanced techniques of land development.
B. 
Standards and general requirements for planned developments.

The minimum parcel area of 35 contiguous acres may be divided by a public street, provided that the area of the public street is not included as part of the thirty-five-acre minimum. The Town Board may, as a condition of approval, require that the internal streets or driveways of the planned development provide for the interconnection or for the possible future interconnection with the internal streets or driveways of the abutting planned development or other adjacent parcels. Said acreage shall be in one ownership or in joint ownership under a suitable agreement that provides for coordinated development of the parcel. Said agreement shall be approved by the Town Attorney of the Town of Greenburgh, New York.[1]
