P. 
Planned unit development (PUD) in all districts. The following regulations shall apply in all Planned Development Districts which may be created to enable the unified development of a substantial land area with such combination of structures and uses as shall be appropriate to an integrated plan for the area.
(1) 
Statement of intent and objectives.
(a) 
Intent.
[1] 
It is the intent of this Planned Unit Development (PUD) Section to provide flexible land use and design regulations through the use of performance criteria so that small-to-large scale neighborhoods or portions thereof may be developed within the Town that incorporate a variety of residential types and nonresidential uses, and contain both individual building sites and common property which are planned and developed as a unit. Such a planned unit is to be designed and organized so as to be capable of satisfactory use and operation as a separate entity without necessarily needing the participation of other building sites or other common property in order to function as a neighborhood. This section specifically encourages innovations in residential development so that the growing demands for housing at all economic levels may be met by greater variety in type, design, and siting of dwellings and by the conservation and more efficient use of land in such developments.
[2] 
This section recognizes that while the standard zoning function (use and bulk) and the subdivision function (platting and design) are appropriate for the regulation of land use in areas or neighborhoods that are already substantially developed, these controls represent a type of preregulation, regulatory rigidity and uniformity which may be inimical to the techniques of land development contained in the planned unit development concept. Further, this section recognizes that a rigid set of space requirements along with bulk and use specifications would frustrate the application of this concept. Thus, where PUD techniques are deemed appropriate through the rezoning of land to a Planned Unit Development District by the Town Board, the set of use and dimensional specifications elsewhere in this chapter (See § 308-42, Schedule I, and § 308-43, Schedule II.) are herein replaced by an approved process in which an approved plan becomes the basis for continuing land use controls.
(b) 
Objectives. In order to carry out the intent of this section, a PUD shall achieve the following objectives:
[1] 
A maximum choice in the types of environment, occupancy tenure (e.g., cooperatives, individual ownership, condominium, leasing), types of housing, lot sizes and community facilities available to existing and potential Town residents at all economic levels;
[2] 
More usable open space and recreation areas;
[3] 
More convenience in location of accessory commercial and service areas;
[4] 
The preservation of trees, outstanding natural topography and geologic features and prevention of soil erosion;
[5] 
A creative use of land and related physical development which allows an orderly transition of land from rural to urban uses;
[6] 
An efficient use of land resulting in smaller networks of utilities and streets and thereby lower housing costs;
[7] 
A development pattern in harmony with the objectives of the Comprehensive Plan;
[8] 
A more desirable environment than would be possible through the strict application of other requirements of this chapter.
(2) 
General requirements for planned unit development.
(a) 
Minimum area. Under normal circumstances, the minimum area requirements to qualify for a Planned Unit Development District shall be 75 contiguous acres of land. Where the applicant can demonstrate that the characteristics of his holdings will meet the objectives of this section, the Planning Board may consider projects with less acreage.
(b) 
Ownership. The tract of land for a project may be owned, leased or controlled either by a single person, or corporation or by a group of individuals or corporations. An application must be filed by the owner or jointly by owners of all property included in a project. In the case of multiple ownership, the approved plan shall be binding on all owners.
(c) 
Location of PUD District. The PUD District shall be applicable to any area of the Town where the applicant can demonstrate that the characteristics of his holdings will meet the objectives of this section.
(d) 
Permitted uses. All uses within an area designated as a PUD District are determined by the provisions of this section and the approval of the project concerned. The proposed use shall not adversely affect surrounding development outside the PUD area.
[1] 
Residential uses. Residences may be of any variety of types. In developing a balanced community, the use of a variety of housing types and densities shall be deemed most in keeping with this section. In keeping with the objectives found in § 308-45P(1)(b)[1] and [6], the developer must demonstrate that he/she is reaching as broad an economic market as possible. In making these determinations, the Planning Board shall consider the size of the site, its location with respect to community services and facilities, transportation, and area-wide market surveys as are available from several sources in Wayne County. Developers may avail themselves of such state, federal and other housing programs as may be available to accomplish these objectives.
[2] 
Commercial, service and other nonresidential uses.
[3] 
Public and private institutional and recreational facilities.
[4] 
Office, research and manufacturing uses.
[5] 
Open space.
(e) 
Intensity of land use. Because land is used more efficiently in a PUD District, improved environmental quality can often be produced with a greater number of dwelling units per gross building area than usually permitted in traditionally zoned districts. The Town Board shall determine in each case the appropriate land use intensity and/or dwelling unit density for individual projects. The determination of land use intensity ratings or dwelling unit densities shall be completely documented, including all facts, opinions and judgments justifying the selection of the rating or density.
(f) 
Common property in the PUD. Common property in a PUD District is a parcel or parcels of land, together with the improvements thereon, the use and enjoyment of which is shared by the owners and occupants of the individual building sites and surrounding community. When common property exists, unless approved by the Town Board as public property, the ownership of such property shall remain private. When common property exists in private ownership, satisfactory arrangements must be made for the improvement, operation and maintenance of such common property and facilities, including private streets, drives, service and parking areas and recreational and open space areas. The Town Board reserves the right to approve or disapprove such arrangements.
(g) 
Roads and utilities. The developer shall provide all necessary water and sewer facilities, storm drainage, highway access, paved streets, parking and loading facilities, streetlighting, sidewalks, and/or paved gutters and curbs as shall be required by the Planning Board except as may otherwise be provided through state, county or federal programs.
(3) 
Planned unit development application procedure and PUD District approval process.
(a) 
General. Whenever any planned unit development is proposed, before any permit for the erection of a permanent building in such planned unit development shall be granted, and before any subdivision plat of any part thereof may be filed in the office of the Wayne County Clerk, the developer or his/her authorized agent shall apply for and secure approval of such planned unit in accordance with the following procedures.
(b) 
Application for sketch plan approval.
[1] 
In order to allow the Planning Board and the developer to reach an understanding on basic design requirements prior to detailed design investment, the developer shall submit 12 copies of a sketch plan of his proposal to the Planning Board. The sketch plan shall be approximately to scale, though it need not be to the precision of finished engineering drawing. The developer should be aware that at all subsequent stages, plans must be prepared by professionally competent site planners. Thus, he is advised to engage such persons at the earliest necessary time. The sketch plan shall clearly show the following information:
[a] 
The location and type of the various uses and their areas in acres;
[b] 
The general outlines of the interior roadway system and all existing rights-of-way and easements, whether public or private;
[c] 
Delineation of the various residential areas indicating for each such area its general extent, size and composition in terms of total number of dwelling units, approximate percentage allocation by dwelling unit type (i.e., single-family detached, duplex, townhouse, garden apartments, high-rise), and general description of the intended market structure (i.e., luxury, middle-income, moderate-income, elderly units, family units, etc.); plus a calculation of the residential density in dwelling units per gross acre (total area including interior roadways) for each such area;
[d] 
The interior open space system;
[e] 
The overall drainage system;
[f] 
If grades exceed 3%, or portions of the site have a moderate-to-high susceptibility to erosion or a moderate-to-high susceptibility to flooding and ponding, a topographic map showing contour intervals of not more than five feet of elevation shall be provided along with an overlay outlining the above susceptible soil areas, if any;
[g] 
Principal ties to the community at large with respect to transportation, water supply, and sewage disposal;
[h] 
General description of the provision of other community facilities, such as schools, fire-protection services, and cultural facilities, if any, and some indication of how these needs are proposed to be accommodated;
[i] 
A location map showing uses and ownership of abutting lands.
[2] 
In addition, 12 copies of the following documentation shall accompany the sketch plan:
[a] 
Evidence of how the developer's particular mix of land uses meets existing community demands to include area-wide as well as local considerations;
[b] 
Evidence of the developer's compliance with the provisions of § 308-45P(2)(d)[1], with respect to the provision of an adequate mix of housing for all economic levels;
[c] 
Evidence that the proposal is compatible with the goals of local and area-wide Comprehensive Plans, if any;
[d] 
Evidence as may be required by the Planning Board in Subsection P(3)(b)[2][a], [b], [c], above, may be in the form of specific studies or reports initiated by the developer or in the form of references to existing studies or reports relevant to the project in question;
[e] 
General statement as to how common open space is to be owned and maintained;
[f] 
If the development is to be staged, a general indication of how the staging is to proceed. Whether or not the development is to be staged, the sketch plan of this section shall show the intended total project [See § 308-45P(4)(d).];
[g] 
Evidence of any sort in the applicant's own behalf to demonstrate his competence to carry out the plan and his awareness of the scope of such a project, both physical and financial.
[3] 
The Planning Board shall review the sketch plan and its related documents; and shall render either a favorable report to the Town Board or an unfavorable report to the applicant.
[a] 
A favorable report shall include a recommendation to the Town Board that a public hearing be held for the purpose of considering establishment of a PUD Zoning District. It shall be based on the following findings which shall be included as part of the report:
[i] 
The proposal conforms to the Comprehensive Plan.
[ii]

The applicant may, within 10 days after receiving an unfavorable report, file a petition to the Town Board for establishing a PUD District. The Town Board may then determine on its own initiative whether or not it wishes to call a public hearing and consider rezoning the subject site to a PUD District.
[4] 
The Chairman of the Planning Board shall certify when all of the necessary application material has been presented; and the Planning Board shall submit its report to the Town Board within 60 days of such certification. If no report has been rendered after 60 days, the applicant may proceed as if a favorable report were given to the Town Board.
(c) 
Petition and public hearing for PUD districting.
[1] 
Upon receipt of a favorable report from the Planning Board, or upon its own determination subsequent to an appeal from an unfavorable report, the Town Board shall set a date for and conduct a public hearing for the purpose of considering PUD districting for the applicant's plan in accordance with the procedures established under §§ 264 and 265 of the Town Law or other applicable law. Said public hearing shall be conducted within 62 days of the receipt of the favorable report or the decision on appeal from an unfavorable report.[7]

Application for preliminary site plan approval. Application for preliminary and final site plan approval shall be to the Planning Board and shall be accompanied by information prepared by a licensed engineer, architect and/or landscape architect following requirements, procedures and development standards outlined in the Chapter 245, Subdivision of Land, of the Code of the Town of Marion. In its review the Planning Board may consult with the Town Engineer and other Town and county officials, as well as with representatives of federal and state agencies including the Soil Conservation Service and the New York State Department of Conservation. The Planning Board may also require such additional provisions and conditions that appear necessary for the public health, safety and general welfare. (See Chapter 245, Subdivision of Land.)
(b) 
In addition to requirements and development standards stated in Chapter 245, Subdivision of Land, the following shall be included for consideration:
[1] 
Adequacy and arrangement of pedestrian traffic access and circulation including intersections, road widths, channelization structures and traffic controls.
[2] 
Adequacy and arrangement of pedestrian traffic access and circulation including: separation of pedestrian from vehicular traffic, walkway structures, control of intersections with vehicular traffic, and pedestrian convenience.
[3] 
Location, arrangement, appearance and sufficiency of off-street parking and loading.
[4] 
Location, arrangement, size and design of buildings, lighting and signs.
[5] 
Relationship of the various uses to one another and their scale.
[6] 
Adequacy, type and arrangement of trees, shrubs and other landscaping constituting a visual and/or a noise deterring buffer between adjacent uses and adjoining lands.
[7] 
Adequacy and distribution of usable open space for playgrounds and informal recreation.
[8] 
Adequacy of stormwater and sanitary waste disposal facilities.
[9] 
Adequacy of structures, roadways and landscaping in areas with moderate to high susceptibility to flooding and ponding and/or erosion.
[10] 
Protection of adjacent properties against noise, glare, unsightliness, or other objectionable features.
[11] 
Overall environmental impact.
[12] 
Conformance with other specific charges of the Town Board which may have been stated in the zoning resolution.
[13] 
The proposed design shall take full advantage of the possibilities for a unified development which preserves scenic features and physical amenities of the site.
[14] 
All buildings shall be arranged so as to be accessible to service and emergency vehicles.
[15] 
Approved utility support systems (water, sewerage, electricity) shall be required. Electric distribution and telephone lines shall be put underground.
[16] 
All provisions of this chapter related to signs and off-street parking and loading shall be complied with as shall any other provisions imposed in the review process.
[17] 
Any proposed nonresidential land uses shall be compatible in nature, size and location with the surrounding neighborhood and shall not create detrimental influences inside or outside the boundaries of the PUD.
(c) 
Request for changes in sketch plan. If in the site plan development it becomes apparent that certain elements of the sketch plan, as it has been approved by the Town Board, are unfeasible and in need of significant modification, the applicant shall then present his solution to the Planning Board as his preliminary site plan in accordance with the above procedures. The Planning Board shall then determine whether or not the modified plan is still in keeping with the intent of the zoning resolution. If a negative decision is reached, the site plan shall be considered as disapproved. The developer may then, if he wishes, produce another site plan in conformance with the approved sketch plan. If an affirmative decision is reached, the Planning Board shall so notify the Town Board stating all of the particulars of the matter and its reasons for feeling the project should be continued as modified. Preliminary site plan approval may then be given only with the consent of the Town Board.
(d) 
Staging. If the applicant wishes to stage his development, and he has so indicated as per § 308-45P(3)(b)[2][f], then he may submit only those stages he wishes to develop for site plan approval in accordance with his staging plan. Any plan which requires more than 24 months to be completed shall be required to be staged; and a staging plan must be developed. It is the intent of this chapter that individual stages of the PUD will have an integrity of use in their own right so that, if for any reason, the entire PUD would not be completed, those portions of the PUD already constructed will be an asset to the community by themselves. Staging plans must take account of this objective, and developers proposing individual stages that deviate significantly from the overall character of the PUD should present convincing evidence that such a stage is indeed in keeping with this section.
(5) 
Other regulations applicable to planned unit developments.
(a) 
Regulation after initial construction and occupancy. For the purpose of regulating development and use of property after initial construction and occupancy, any changes other than use changes shall be processed as a special permit request to the Planning Board. Use changes shall also be in the form of a request for special permit except that Town Board approval shall be required. It shall be noted, however that properties lying in Planned Unit Development Districts are unique and shall be so considered by the Planning Board or Town Board when evaluating these requests; and maintenance of the intent and function of the planned unit shall be of primary importance.
(b) 
Land development regulations and construction specifications. All provisions of the Land Development Regulations and construction specification currently in use by the Planning Board shall be applicable for development under this section.
(6) 
Financial responsibility. No building permits shall be issued for construction within a PUD District until improvements are installed or performance bond or letter of credit posted in accordance with the same procedures as provided for in § 245-8 of Chapter 245, Subdivision of Land, of the Code of the Town of Marion. Other such requirements may also be established from time to time by the Town Board. Cost of the Town Engineer review and site inspections shall be born by the applicant. (See § 308-30, Fees, deposits and securities.)

(e) 
Renewable special permit. When authorized by the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Code Enforcement Officer shall issue a renewable special permit for a junkyard; such permit shall be renewed annually. Such renewal will be made after the Code Enforcement Officer has determined that no violations of this § 308-46B(13) or of the conditions of the special permit, have been found. Prior to any change of ownership, the governing board shall review and authorize the transfer of a special permit to a subsequent owner.

[1] 
The applicant can demonstrate that he has no prior record of convictions for any type of larceny or receiving of stolen goods.
[2] 
A junkyard shall be completely surrounded by a fence at least eight feet in height which substantially screens the yard and provides a suitable gate which shall be closed and locked except during the working hours of such junkyard or when the applicant or his agent shall be within. Such fence shall be erected not nearer than 100 feet to a public highway. All motor vehicles and parts thereof stored or deposited by the applicant shall be kept within the enclosure of the junkyard except as removal shall be necessary for the transportation of same in the reasonable course of the business. All wrecking or other work on such motor vehicles and parts and all burning of same within the vicinity of the junkyard shall be accomplished within the enclosure. Where the topography, natural growth of timber or other considerations accomplish the purposes of this section in whole or in part, the fencing requirements hereunder may be reduced by the governing board, upon granting the permit; provided, however, that such natural barrier conforms with the purposes of this section.
[3] 
No junkyard shall be established within 500 feet of a church, school, hospital, public building, or place of public assembly.
[4] 
Aesthetic considerations: the governing board may take into account the location of the junkyard in order to maintain a clean, wholesome and attractive environment which has been declared to be of vital importance to the continued general welfare of its citizens by considering whether or not the proposed location can be reasonably protected from having an unfavorable effect thereon. In this connection, the governing board may consider collectively the type of road servicing the junkyard or from which the junkyard may be seen, the natural or artificial barriers protecting the junkyard from view, the proximity of the proposed junkyard to established residential and recreational areas or main access routes thereto. The governing board may deny the special permit if it finds the location unsuitable for the activity.
[5]
