§ 217.01  PURPOSE.
   The purpose of this chapter is:
   (A)   To encourage a more creative and efficient development of land and its improvements through the preservation of natural features and amenities than is possible under the more restrictive application of zoning requirements. This section may allow modifications such as non-standard lot sizes, private streets and driveways, reduced rights-of-way and street widths, housing types, zero lot lines, and building setbacks. These changes shall meet the standards and purposes of the Comprehensive Plan while preserving the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the city:
   (B)   To allow for the potential mixture of uses in an integrated and well planned area;
   (C)   To ensure concentration of open space into more usable areas, and a preservation of the natural resources of the site;
   (D)   To facilitate the economical provision of streets and public utilities; and
   (E)   To facilitate mixed use developments, and/or affordable housing, recreational uses, and institutional uses.
