a. Amount and quality of landscaping;
b. Amount, quality, and interconnectedness of common open space;
c. Provision of pedestrian or bicycle paths separated from streets;
d. Preservation of drainageways and other natural features;
e. Common recreational facilities;

g. Varied building setbacks or other measures to reduce monotony in design; and
h. Other features as determined by the plan commission.
