The Clifton Park Town Center Plan.
A.  
In 2011, the Town of Clifton Park sought to develop a consensus vision for the look, feel and function of a future "Town Center" in its existing Exit 9 commercial area. Funding for this effort was provided by the Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC).
B.  
Town officials, with the assistance of planning consultants, worked to imagine how this neighborhood could evolve over time with redevelopment into a more-attractive mixed-use commercial center of activity. The goal was to create a rich atmosphere which was pedestrian and bicycle friendly and the "heart" of the community.
C.  
Two public workshops were held to invite local residents, business owners and landowners to discuss what they would like to see. The result of these dialogs was used to shape a guidance document titled "The Clifton Park Town Center Plan," which was adopted in April of 2012.
2. 
How and why this code was created.
A.  
It was understood that in order to realize the ideas and visions outlined in the Clifton Park Town Center Plan, the existing zoning for this area of town would need to be reconstructed, and consensus built among local residents and property owners about how it should work. A form-based zoning approach was chosen because it utilizes graphics to explain what the desired form and appearance of development should be with an eye toward creating beautiful places and a streamlined development review process which encourages revitalization. With the assistance of additional funding by the CDTC, the follow-up work was commenced in 2013 to develop a new form-based zoning code which would allow and encourage the type of redevelopment outlined in the Town Center Plan.
B.  
Two additional public workshops were held to discuss the specific ideas and approaches to this form-based zoning. The input received from the public, Town officials, landowners and business owners was used to shape this new zoning code.
C.  
It is our hope that this work will, over time, help the Clifton Park Town Center to evolve into a vibrant, attractive, mixed-use shopping destination for all to enjoy.
1. 
Regulating Plan interpretation.
The Regulating Plan is intended as a general guide to the desired future development patterns within the Town Center. To provide for design creativity and flexibility, some elements of the plan are intended only as a suggested outcome and should not be interpreted literally or strictly required. These include:
A.  
The location and extent of public/open space.
B.  
The location of future new roads, service alleys, multi-use paths, transit stops and recommended tower designs.
2. 
Other elements of the Regulating Plan, however, are intended to be maintained as shown, as follows:
A.  
The location and boundaries of each development zone TC1 thru TC6, and the Design Overlay.
B.  
The general location or orientation of required storefronts, where they provide direct facade frontage along a public or private street.
3. 
Zones.
The Clifton Park Town Center Zoning hereby establishes the following development zones, as shown on the Regulating Plan and the Town of Clifton Park Zoning Map, as amended herein:
A.  
TC6 - Boulevard. The Boulevard Zone is intended to define the character of the primary boulevard through the Town Center. This boulevard is designed to showcase the large lawns, shade trees, planted medians and a multi-use path as a "parklike" setting, fronted on either side by continuous shopfronts, sidewalks and outdoor patios. Bisecting Route 146 with gateway median designs and architectural tower elements, it seeks to attract visitors into the Town Center neighborhood. Mixed-use buildings up to five stories, with residential dwelling units only permitted above commercial space.
B.  
TC5 - Neighborhood. The Town Center Neighborhood Zone is intended to be the core pedestrian shopping area and mixed-use neighborhood. A network of side streets with wide sidewalks, street trees and commercial shopfronts served by on-street parking, hidden parking lots and garages tucked within the center of the blocks. Three-story mixed-use buildings, with residential dwelling units only permitted above commercial space. Provides incentives to permit up to five-story buildings in return for providing structured parking.
C.  
TC4 - Transition. The Transition Zone is intended to create a transitional zone to outlying areas of the Town Center and neighboring residential areas. Three-story buildings with primarily commercial office uses, with some limited retail and residential uses.
D.  
TC3 - General. The General Zone is intended to allow for more suburban lot configurations of commercial and office uses along the Route 146 corridor which would not be suitable for the central neighborhood portions. Three-story buildings.
E.  
TC2 - Edge. The Edge Zone is intended to create a transitional zone between the central commercial districts and the outlying residential areas with lower-intensity development and shorter building heights. Three-story buildings, primarily residential in nature, but does allow for some limited supporting commercial uses as part of the development.
F.  
TC1 - Highway. The Highway Zone is intended to allow for more suburban lot configurations of commercial and office uses along the Northway corridor which would not be suitable for the central neighborhood portions. Emphasis is placed on providing attractive architecture which will be viewed from both the front and the back, with increased tree buffers, landscaping and architectural standards along the Northway frontage to maintain an attractive presence along the highway.
G.  
OS - Open Space. The Open Space Zone represents the goal of providing attractive landscaped or natural areas with trees, landscaping and buffers where possible which will enhance the overall visual appeal of the Town Center for the benefit of everyone. This zone is intended to suggest and promote areas for small parks, trails, open lawns, watershed management and recreational areas for the future use and enjoyment of shoppers and residents. This zone is not intended to require any specific property to be set aside as open space. Green lawns, shade trees, playgrounds, picnic areas, multi-use paths and attractive landscaping are to be considered as goals and determined on a project basis during development review. Once designated on an approved plan, no commercial or residential uses are permitted. The Open Space Zone boundaries are representational of the amount and general location of open space, buffer or amenity area to be set aside from a Master Plan perspective. The actual location, extent, design, level of improvement and management (public, private, nonprofit) shall be determined as part of the design development review for the parcel(s).
H.  
DO - Design Overlay. The Design Overlay is an overlay district to address areas outside of the original Town Center Master Plan that are logical extensions of the Town Center area but which have not been master-planned. Development projects in this area are required to go through the full design development review process in order to ensure proper development. A collaborative design development review process under the Design Overlay shall include the property owner(s)/contract vendee, the Town Technical Advisory Committee, the Town-designated engineer, and the Town-designated design professional to determine how to best advance the recommendations of the Clifton Park Town Center Master Plan and the project development plan. The permitted uses of the underlying zoning districts may be modified through the planned development district process pursuant to the objectives of Article XI, Planned Development Districts. This collaborative process shall include consideration for connecting Moe Road to Maxwell Road Extension, multi-use pathway connections to Moe Road, Collins Park and to the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library and set aside of approximately 30% of the property as public open or civic space, which may include multipurpose paths, connector roads, green infrastructure/stormwater management areas, and pocket parks and greens. The underlying zone designation per the Regulating Plan will not become effective until conclusion of the full design development review process.

Boulevard Zone Overview
325 FBC Zone Overview.tifThe primary intent of this zone is to create an attractive entrance and boulevard route into and through the Town Center neighborhood, as a transition from the larger Route 146 to the smaller side streets.
Along Clifton Country Road, a revitalized streetscape of trees, decorative lighting, landscaped multi-use path and sidewalks will be framed by inviting and attractive architecture. Existing front parking lots will gradually be transformed into attractive community and economic amenities, from outdoor patios and cafes to well-designed and interesting facades, where each building offers an attractive and inviting view of the ground-floor activities within. From storefront window displays, to outdoor dining areas amidst beautiful landscaping, as one travels from building to building and business to business, there is a continual offering of design elements to engage one's interest.

Building Types Overview
A.  
Commercial Block
Description
The Commercial Block building type is a small to large-sized structure, typically attached, that provides a vertical mix of uses with ground-floor commercial, service, or retail uses and upper-floor commercial, service, or residential uses. Smaller versions of this type make up the primary component of a neighborhood main street, while larger versions make up the primary component of downtown, therefore being a key component to providing walkability.

Liner Building
Description
The Liner Building provides a relatively shallow depth of retail and office storefronts around the perimeter of a block while screening a central interior courtyard for use as a public space, parking lot, parking garage or "large-box" retail structure. The purpose of the Liner Building is to provide a smaller-scale pedestrian atmosphere along the sidewalk while screening less visually attractive or utilitarian uses behind it.

Civic Buildings are typically placed in focal locations. They should be designed with their function as landmarks in mind:
▪ The scale of Civic Buildings should typically be larger than surrounding buildings in order to be more prominent and visible across greater distances.
▪ Floor-to-floor heights and architectural details should be proportionately larger than those of private buildings that exist or are anticipated to exist within adjacent parcels.
▪ Prominent roof forms and additive elements such as cupolas can visually extend the height of the building.

Description
Drive-Thru buildings such as banks or gas stations within the Town Center are to be configured with the building portion of the program located toward the street and the vehicular circulation for the drive thru or gasoline pumps to the rear, screened from view. In this way, Drive Thrus can be accommodated while maintaining well-shaped and activated street frontages. Where possible, curb cuts should be limited to one vehicular entrance/exit so as to minimize interference with pedestrian sidewalks.

Promote a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented Broadway;
(b) 
Focus new commercial development along Broadway;
(c) 
Provide for a mix of uses that serves the needs of the residents of, and visitors to, the City.
325 FBC BC-3.tif
(2) 
Within this district, the preferred form for new development is the shopfront form, also known as the "Main Street form." This form generally features ground-floor retail with residential or commercial uses on the upper floors. Buildings with residential use only are allowed, but must follow the design guidelines for the district.
(3) 
A transit-oriented development is planned for the western end of the district. The area is bound by Broadway to the north and West Street and Lake Street to the west and east. This subdistrict will feature the same general form as the rest of the corridor, but will allow slightly higher and more dense new development that will capitalize on transit investments made by the City and county.

Building placement examples.
325 FBC BC-4.png 325 FBC BC-5.png
  • Building placed at front lot line for continuous street wall
  • Lot width <100 feet so no side yard allowed
  • Recessed entrance allowed because 80% of facade is at lot line
  • One side yard of 12 feet is allowed because lot width is greater than 100 feet
