In Planned Development Districts, where specifically permitted by the Common Council, multiple-family and condominium dwelling units may be constructed to conform to the following regulations:
Lot area minimum: 10,000 square feet, plus an additional 1,500 square feet for each one-bedroom unit, 2,000 square feet for each two-bedroom unit and 2,500 square feet for each three-or-more-bedroom units.
Minimum lot width at building line: 120 feet.
Front yard minimum: 40 feet.
Rear yard minimum: 40 feet.
Side yard minimum: 25 feet.
Maximum coverage: 20%.
Maximum units per building: 50.
Maximum building height: six stories or 70 feet, whichever is less (accessory buildings: 15 feet).
Provision is included for Planned Development Districts to permit establishment of areas in which diverse residential, commercial and industrial uses may be brought together as a compatible and unified plan of development which is in the interest and general welfare of the public, with any such district containing a minimum of five acres or more.
Area, yard, coverage, height and supplementary regulation requirements shall be comparable to minimum requirements in appropriate residential, commercial or industrial zoning districts for each specific use, except where the Planning Board finds that it is in the public interest to modify these requirements.
The owner shall submit three sets of site plans of the proposed development to the Planning Board for review, as required under § 280-48.
The Planning Board shall recommend the approval with modifications or disapproval of the site plans. The Planning Board may recommend to the Common Council establishment of a Planned Development District, provided that it finds facts submitted with the plans established that:
Uses proposed will not be detrimental to present and potential surrounding uses.
Land surrounding the proposed development can be planned in coordination with the proposed development and that it be compatible in use.
The proposed zoning change is in conformance with the intent of the Comprehensive Plan.
Existing and proposed streets are suitable and adequate to carry anticipated traffic within and in the vicinity of the proposed district.
Existing and proposed utility services are adequate for proposed development.
Each phase of the proposed development, as proposed to be completed, contains the required parking spaces and landscaped areas necessary for creating and sustaining a desirable and stable environment.
The Common Council may amend the Zoning Map after holding a public hearing, but such action shall have the effect only of granting permission for development of the specific proposal, in accordance with site plans approved by the Common Council. An appropriate notation to that effect shall be made on three sets of plans. One set shall be retained by the City Clerk, and one set shall be retained by the Zoning Administrator.
Planned development approval by the Common Council shall be secured by the owner for each phase of development.
