A.   Cluster development is intended to encourage the use of free and irregular yard patterns between dwellings and without uniform relation to the street pattern and to permit attached single-family homes to be constructed and sold to homeowners. The purpose is to promote the general public welfare, encourage the efficient use of land and resources, promote greater efficiency in the provision of public services and utilities, and encourage innovation in the planning and building of developments by providing opportunities for creative design and planning of developments using more flexible zoning guidelines and site design criteria than permitted under traditional district regulations.
   B.   The suspension of traditional zoning provisions within cluster developments is intended to encourage creative, high quality site design practices in the development of residential areas, promote harmony and integration with existing developments, protect adjoining properties from adverse impacts, promote safe and efficient pedestrian and vehicular movement, promote efficient layout of infrastructure, and create attractive and useful private homes.
