A. 
This district is intended to foster development with a substantially enhanced environmental profile by, in part, emphasizing public transit and enhanced pedestrian accessibility. To achieve these goals, the district incentivizes development by reducing on-site parking thereby affording more economically productive use of available land. In evaluating whether proposed developments achieve these objectives, the Plan Commission/Architectural Review Board shall assess compliance with the following standards:
1. 
Linkage between the development and the Forsyth MetroLink Station, if one does not currently exist.
2. 
Leadership in energy and environmental design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council at a minimum "Certified" level including applicable regional priorities or an equivalent certification from a nationally recognized third (3rd) party verified organization as determined by the Plan Commission.
3. 
City streetscape consistent with the City of Clayton's streetscape standards.
4. 
Greenspace/urban gathering areas open to the street and proportionate to the development size and scope.
The special development or planned unit development ordinance shall specify whether and how individual standards are to be satisfied and penalties for failure to fulfill agreed undertakings.
[Ord. No. 6053 §1, 1-13-2009]
The Board of Aldermen shall, in arriving at its decision on a proposed SDD or PUD, consider these regulations, Chapter 405, the Master Plan and any other land use or urban design policies relevant to the specific site which have been accepted or adopted by the Board of Aldermen.
