A. Design Review Tracks: No single-family residence located in a Central R-1 zone shall be erected, constructed, altered or remodeled unless the elevations and plans for the exterior portions and areas visible from the street have been first reviewed and approved by the director of planning and community development (the "director") or the design review commission, as appropriate, in accordance with the provisions of this article. The R-1 design review required by this article shall fall into the following two (2) tracks:
1. Track 1; Character Based Review: Under track 1, proposed residential development will be reviewed to determine whether it substantially adheres to a pure architectural style as outlined in a style catalogue adopted by resolution of the council. The materials and elements listed as associated with a particular style may be substituted for equivalent or like materials, equal in quality and appearance as those outlined in the style catalogue, so long as they do not detract from the architectural style to be represented. The style catalogue may be amended from time to time by resolution of the council and will be maintained by the director. Track 1 reviews will be limited to a determination of consistency with the approved style catalogue. If the required review determines that the proposed development adheres to an architecturally pure style and meets all of the applicable development standards set forth in this chapter, the development may be granted a building permit without further design review.
2. Track 2; All Other R-1 Review: All other single-family residential development that is subject to the provisions of this article and that does not meet the criteria for a track 1 review must submit to a full R-1 design review in accordance with the provisions of this article.
B. Exemption: The provisions of this article shall not apply to any single-family residence located in a Central R-1 zone described in subsection 10-3-2426B of this chapter. (Ord. 04-O-2444, eff. 5-21-2004; amd. Ord. 05-O-2472, eff. 6-17-2005)
