Editor's Note: See also Schedule B included as an attachment to this chapter.
A. 
The objective of the provisions in this article is to provide guidance for the future development of those areas being converted from rural to urban uses. Use intensity and other development standards are based upon the availability of a full range of urban services and infrastructure, while allowing for traditional, low-rise construction and the preservation of the essential elements of the natural environment by the inclusion of open space and plant life within individual projects as well as the overall area.
(1) 
Residential development provisions allow for a wide range of housing types and siting arrangements within and among the various projects, ranging from traditional single-family detached dwellings accommodated entirely on their own lots to a variety of innovative group developments, including zero-lot-line detached housing, townhouse and apartment complexes.
(2) 
Commercial development provisions address a variety of market conditions, including existing shopping mall complexes and arterial streets, linear models, as well as future commercial parks.
(3) 
Wholesaling, warehousing and industrial uses are accommodated in the modern industrial park setting, which assures an attractive and functional environment with access to the area's transportation facilities and other support systems.
B. 
These areas of the City lie outside of the older, developed urban area and, therefore, provide opportunity for developing complexes of compatible building types and siting amenities on a larger scale than the traditional lot-by-lot process. Flexibility is to be encouraged in group developments where overall project control is vested in a single entity.
