Pursuant to subsection 10-3-3104B of this chapter, for those development projects in the C-5 zone that require planning commission review as part of the development plan review procedure, the planning commission shall consider the following factors as part of the commission's determination regarding whether a proposed development plan will promote harmonious development of the C-5 and P-S zones. The commission may base its determination on one or more of the following factors:
A. Traffic Generation And Circulation: The planning commission may consider whether the development plan incorporates features and uses which would generate less traffic than a comparable general office use and would adequately mitigate traffic impacts attributable to that portion of the floor area in excess of a floor area ratio of 1.5.
B. Beneficial Primary Uses: The planning commission may consider whether the primary uses proposed in the development plan will generate less traffic than general office uses or enhance the pedestrian oriented character of the area.
C. Beneficial Auxiliary Uses: The planning commission may consider whether the auxiliary uses proposed in the development plan include on site facilities which reduce traffic generation such as a gymnasium, lunchroom, or daycare center or contain other uses beneficial to the city such as parking for adjacent existing residential uses.
D. Community Amenities: The planning commission may consider whether the development plan includes off site amenities such as daycare or parking, or includes a contribution to city park acquisition plans or other community amenities.
E. Enhancement Of Public Open Space: The planning commission may consider whether the proposed development plan will enhance public open space.
F. Participation In Areawide Streetscape Improvement: The planning commission may consider whether the development plan includes participation in areawide streetscape improvements.
G. Change Of Use: The planning commission may consider whether the use proposed in the development plan will be maintained.
H. Scale And Massing: The planning commission may consider the siting of structures, massing, scale, and use of open space. (Ord. 94-O-2193, eff. 3-4-1994)
