§ 4.07  LGD, LINDEN GATEWAY DISTRICT ZONE.
   4.07.01      Purpose.
   (A)   The purpose of the Linden Gateway District Zone (LGD) is to provide for a pedestrian friendly, mixed use corridor that is compatible with adjacent residential neighborhoods and (1) compliments the 12th Street Design Guidelines that was funded by the Federal Highway Administration and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet; and (2) is consistent with the Linden Gateway Small Area Study’s recommended land use and transportation goals, objectives, policies, and strategies including:
      (1)   Ensuring new development contributes positively to established residential neighborhoods and their character, and provides a transition between commercial development and adjacent residential neighborhoods.
      (2)   Enhancing convenience, ease, and enjoyment of transit, walking, shopping, and public gathering within the neighborhood.
      (3)   Providing an appropriate mix of commercial, office, and residential uses that work together to create a harmonious streetscape.
      (4)   Establishing building form and architectural standards compatible with the historic character of the area.
   (B)   This zone is intended to assist in the redevelopment of 12th Street/Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard so that it may serve as a destination for residents and those who work in this area to live, work, and access retail, office, and service uses. The LGD Zone regulations promote historically sensitive site design, create a sense of place within the corridor, and provide a livable environment for existing residents while enhancing the value and aesthetics of the surrounding community.
   4.07.02      How to Use the LGD Zone.
 
   4.07.03      Conflict.
   (A)   In any case where the standards and requirements of the LGD Zone conflict with those of other provisions of the Covington Zoning Ordinance, the standards and requirements of the LGD Zone shall apply.
   (B)   Illustrations in this section are intended to illustrate building forms that are typically seen in the existing context and to demonstrate how measurements are made. They do not illustrate the full range of possible building forms or outcomes allowed within the standards. Parking areas that are shown are intended to illustrate general parking locations and access only and do not illustrate off-street parking, landscaping, or buffer requirements. In the event of a conflict between illustrations and standards in the text, the text standards shall apply.
   4.07.04      Applicability and Extent.
   (A)   The regulations of this section apply to all development proposed within the boundaries of the LGD Zone, as shown on the official zoning map.
   (B)   The LGD Zone contains its own character standards. However, if a regulation within the LGD Zone cross-references another section of this ordinance that refers to the Character Standard suffixes (“P”, “M”, and “A”), the regulations pertaining to the “P” suffix shall be used.
   (C)   Any nonconforming structures and uses existing created by the adoption of the LGD Zone shall be regulated by Article 14.
   (D)   The requirements of this section shall not apply to existing single- or two-family homes that are used exclusively for residential purposes. Additions or renovations to such structures or accessory uses are permitted, subject to the zoning requirements of the RU-2 Zone as well as the Residential Infill Development regulations, per § 2.04 of this ordinance. Existing single- and two-family homes that are partially or fully destroyed may be rebuilt as a matter of right, and are exempt from the requirements of Article 14. Routine maintenance and in-kind replacement of materials are exempt from the standards and requirements of this section.
   4.07.05      Review and Approval Procedures. Developments within the LGD Zone require review and approval in accordance with the following procedures:
   (A)   (1)   Pre-application meeting: Prior to filing for development plan review, the developer, petitioner, applicant, or property owner shall attend a pre-application meeting with the Kenton County Planning Commission’s (KCPC) duly authorized representative/Planning and Development Services of Kenton County (PDS) staff and city staff to discuss the development review process, the LGD Zone requirements and the City of Covington Zoning Ordinance requirements.
      (2)   The pre-application meeting is intended to review the development plan and identify any issues in applying the regulations of the LGD Zone. No person should rely upon any comment concerning a proposed development plan, or any expression of any nature about the proposal made by any participant at the pre-application conference as a representation or implication that the proposal ultimately will be approved or rejected in any form.
   (B)   Stage II Development Plan Review: Projects may be built as a matter of right when they meet all of the standards of the LGD Zone regulations. Incomplete applications will not be accepted for review. Following the formal submission of a Stage II Development Plan, which shall include elevation views and photometric plans, the KCPC’s duly authorized representative/PDS staff shall prepare a recommendation of approval, approval with conditions, or disapproval. This recommendation shall be forwarded to the City Manager or his/her designee.
   (C)   Final review and approval by the City Manager or his/her designee shall take place within 30 days from receipt of PDS staff recommendation.
   (D)   Compliance with the ordinance: Compliance with these regulations shall be evaluated based on the intent of the ordinance, how well the development conforms to the regulations and whether it is consistent with the city’s goals and plans. Minor modifications should be reviewed and discussed at the pre-application conference and shall be based only on proposed challenges related to:
      (1)   Topography;
      (2)   Street grade;
      (3)   The location of streets;
      (4)   Breaks and passages between buildings;
      (5)   Signs;
      (6)   Streetscape details;
      (7)   Design issues related to the inclusion of green infrastructure stormwater management practices;
      (8)   Inclusion of existing buildings or mature trees.
   4.07.06      Regulating Plan. The Regulating Plan is the guiding map for the implementation of the LGD. The regulating plan shows the subdistricts that govern the development standards for each property.
 
 
   (A)   Subdistrict 1 - Watkins Center. Create an area conducive to the development of medical and professional offices, and public and civic uses in a campus setting with unified architecture. Due to the proximity of this subdistrict to the old Bavarian Brewery, larger footprints and taller buildings are appropriate.
   (B)   Subdistrict 2 - Kavanaugh Commons. Create an area conducive to the development of medical and professional offices, and public and civic uses in a campus setting with unified architecture. Due to the proximity of this subdistrict to Linden Grove Cemetery and the neighborhood to the south of the cemetery, building scales and heights should enhance the character of the neighborhood.
   (C)   Subdistrict 3 - Transition Mixed Use Corridor. Create an area that transitions from the height and scale of the General Office/Community Facilities subdistrict to the urban character of the Mixed Use Corridor subdistrict. Design through landscaping, signage, and mixed use development standards and an enhanced pedestrian environment are promoted. Taller and larger footprint buildings are appropriate, however the building facades should be broken up to express the scale and character of the existing buildings on the north side of 12th Street/Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
   (D)   Subdistrict 4 - Mixed Use Corridor. Enhance the urban character of 12th Street/Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard while promoting sustainable development and design through landscaping, signage, and mixed use development standards and an enhanced pedestrian environment. Larger footprint buildings are appropriate, however the building facades should express the scale and character of the existing buildings on the north side of 12th Street/Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
   (E)   Subdistrict 5 - Adaptive Reuse Corridor. Promote the preservation and reuse of the existing structures along the north side of 12th Street/Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Adaptive reuses should include specialty retail and office uses that are compatible with the adjacent neighborhood and provide a vibrant mixed use corridor, with the possibility of residential uses on the top floors.
   4.07.07      Permitted Uses and Building Forms.
   (A)   The LGD Zone allows a variety of building forms and uses based on the character of each subdistrict. The following example shows you how to use the Permitted Uses and Building Forms.
 
      (1)   Find your proposed use on the left column of the table. In this example, artist galleries and studios are used:
 
      (2)   Determine if your proposed use is permitted in the Subdistrict you wish to locate. In this example, Subdistrict 2 is used:
 
Artist galleries and studios are permitted in Subdistrict 3.
      (3)   Finally, determine what building forms are permitted in Subdistrict 3 for artist galleries and studios:
 
Artist galleries and studios are permitted in Public and Civic (P&C), Commercial (COM), or Mixed Use (MU) buildings
   (B)   The permitted building forms are abbreviated in the Permitted Uses and Building Forms table. Use the following key to determine what building forms are permitted:
 
Each permitted building form contains specific development standards unique to each form. Refer to the cross-referenced sections in the table above for these development standards.
