A. 
Purpose. This Section contains the regulations and procedures of the "BP-4" Planned Business Park District (hereinafter "BP-4" District). It is the purpose of the "BP-4" District to facilitate the establishment of combinations of development and uses in a planned environment for which no provision is made in any single "BP" Business Park District and to encourage a creative approach to the use of land and affiliated physical facilities that results in a better development and design under conditions of approved site and development plans. Furthermore, the "BP-4" District is intended for varying intensity business and associated retail services of high quality that can justify the amenities and high level of performance standards governing development in a planned business park setting. These regulations are supplemented and qualified by additional regulations appearing elsewhere in this Title.
B. 
Establishment Of A "BP-4" District.
1. 
A "BP-4" District may be established on a tract of land in a single ownership or management control provided that:

b. 
A Site Development Plan in compliance with the conditions for rezoning and Concept Plan approved by the Board is submitted to Commission and Board for approval and recorded with the St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds.
c. 
The schedule of construction is complied with in accordance with the approved rezoning ordinance and/or Site Development Plan approval.
2. 
A "BP-4" District may be established by the Board in the same manner that other Zoning Districts are established where the Board determines that any particular tract or areas should be developed accordingly, but because of possible conflicts with adjoining uses, more development control is necessary to protect the general welfare than is possible under the regulations of the "BP-1," "BP-2" and "BP-3" Business Park Districts.
3. 
The minimum tract or combined property area to establish a "BP-4" District shall be three (3) contiguous acres unless said property adjoins a "BP-4" District. For property adjoining an existing "BP-4" District, the minimum area is one (1) contiguous acre.
C. 
Permitted Uses And Uses Allowed By Special Use Permit. Permitted Uses and Uses allowed by Special Use Permit in the "BP-4" District shall be established in the conditions of the rezoning ordinance governing the District. Specific uses may include those designated Permitted Uses and by Uses allowed by Special Use Permit in any "BP" Business Park District, except not more than fifty percent (50%) of the gross floor area of any building may be used for warehouse.

These forms are to be submitted to the Community Development Department and accompanied by the following:
a. 
Filing fee per requirements of Section 420.030 (Procedures for a Change in Zoning);
b. 
Legal description of the property;
c. 
Outboundary plat of the property;
d. 
Preliminary site plan in compliance with Section 470.070;
e. 
Concept Plan identifying the general location of streets, utilities, and other proposed infrastructure and the general location of the proposed uses of the District;
f. 
Description/list of proposed uses; and
g. 
Any additional information reasonably required by the Director to determine compliance with the requirements herein.
2. 
When approving the change of zoning and Concept Plan, the Commission shall recommend and the Board shall establish within the governing ordinance the permitted uses and uses allowed by Special Use Permit for the proposed "BP-4" District, required infrastructure and rules related to the same, open space requirements, required setbacks, landscape buffers, building heights and materials, lot size and coverage requirements, density requirements, and other conditions and requirements to meet the requirements of this Section. All other provisions and procedures for a change of zoning of Section 420.030 (Procedures for a Change in Zoning) shall apply.
3. 
Site Development Plans.
a. 
After passage of the rezoning ordinance and approval of the Concept Plan by the Board the developer shall proceed with submitting a Site Development Plan. A Site Development Plan can either be presented for the entire "BP-4" District or the developer can proceed to construct the District in phases and submit multiple Site Development Plans. No building permits or authorization for improvement or development for any use requested under provisions of this Section shall be issued prior to approval of such Plans.
b. 
Site Development Plans Shall Be Submitted To Director For Review. These plans shall contain the minimum requirements established in the conditions of the ordinance governing the "BP-4" District and, further, shall comply with the applicable provisions of the Subdivision Ordinance and other City ordinances. If the Director finds the Plan(s) to be in substantial compliance with the zoning ordinance, the approved Concept Plan, and this Section ("Applicable Authority"), the Director shall forward to the Commission for review and recommendation. For purposes of this Section, "substantial compliance" shall mean a level of compliance with the requirements of the Applicable Authority such that any identified inconsistencies do not allow a lesser amount of performance on behalf of the Developer nor impose a greater burden or risk upon the City or its citizens than that of the Applicable Authority. Specifically, the Director must determine that:
(1) 
Development density and intensity have not materially changed such that density of any use exceeds the permitted density of that use, or the permitted height of the buildings;
(2) 
Design has not materially changed, in that the roadway patterns, particularly ingress egress points, are in the same general location as shown on the Concept Plan, landscaped open space is in the same general location, is of the same or greater amount, or the proposed changes do not have the effect of creating any non-compliance or non-conformity with the strict application of the Zoning Code that were not previously approved at public hearing, or of expanding the scope of existing variances, alternative site development, options, or other approvals pursuant to alternative development standards such that they would differ to a greater degree from the strict application of the Zoning Code; and
(3) 
Uses have not changed to include uses not approved by the Applicable Authority.
c. 
The Commission shall review the Site Development Plan for compliance with the Applicable Authority and make a recommendation to the Board.

b. 
If the Director determines that the proposed amendment to the Site Development Plan is major in nature and is not in conflict with the approved Concept Plan and meets all conditions of the "BP-4" District ordinance, said Plan shall be reviewed by the Commission and forwarded to the Board for approval. If approved, said amended Plan shall be recorded with the St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds by the developer at its cost within sixty (60) days of review and report by the Commission and approval by the Board. Failure to record within the prescribed timeline shall result in the approval of the amendment being null and void.
c. 
If the Director determines that the proposed amendment to the Site Development Plan is minor in nature and is not in conflict with the original proposal as advertised and the Concept Plan and meets all conditions of the "BP-4" District ordinance, the Director may administratively approve such amendment. Said amended Plan shall be retained on file by the Community Development Department and shall be recorded with the St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds by the developer at its cost within sixty (60) days of approval by the Director.

a. 
Unless otherwise determined by the Board in the rezoning ordinance, the Board shall consider the "BP-4" District development subject to revocation if substantial construction fails to commence within one (1) year of filing of the Site Development Plan or construction is not completed within five (5) years from approval of the Site Development Plan. As used in this Section, "substantial construction" shall mean final grading for roadways necessary for first (1st) approved plat or phase of construction and commencement of installation of sanitary and storm sewers. Any extension herein provided for shall be filed with the Director prior to the expiration date for which the extension is being requested. The developer shall be notified, in writing, at least sixty (60) days prior to any revocation hearing.
b. 
The Board may grant an extension to commence construction for not more than one (1) additional year. Any extension herein provided for shall be filed with the Director prior to the expiration date for which the extension is being requested.
c. 
In the event the Site Development Plan is not submitted or substantial construction has not commenced within the prescribed time limits, the Site Development Plan and Concept Plan shall terminate and the Commission shall within forty-five (45) days recommend initiation of a new public hearing to revert the property to its prior classification in accord with the proceedings specified in Section 420.040, Petitions for Change, Filing Fee, Form and Contents.

A. 
Purpose. This Section contains the regulations and procedures for the "PID" Planned Industrial Development District (hereinafter "PID" District). It is the purpose of the "PID" District to facilitate the establishment of combinations of development and uses that cannot be accomplished in a Business Park District and to encourage a creative approach to the use of land and facilities therein that can best be achieved via parameters and alternatives through conditions of approved site development plans. Furthermore, the "PID" District is intended for varying intensity industrial and complementary business/commercial services of high quality that can justify the amenities and high level of performance standards governing development in a planned industrial development setting. These regulations are supplemented and qualified by additional regulations appearing elsewhere in this Title.
B. 
Establishment Of A "PID" District.

c. 
The schedule of construction is complied with in accordance with the approved rezoning ordinance and/or Site Development Plan approval.
2. 
A "PID" District may be established by the Board in the same manner that other Zoning Districts are established where the Board determines that any particular tract or areas should be developed accordingly, but because of possible conflicts with adjoining uses, more development control is necessary to protect the general welfare than is possible under the regulations of the "IP-1" Industrial Park District.
3. 
The minimum tract or combined property area to establish a "PID" District shall be twenty (20) contiguous acres unless said property adjoins a "PID" District. For property adjoining an existing "PID" District, the minimum area is two (2) contiguous acres.
