(A) Screening. In all the commercially zoned areas within the Village of Kingsley, and the other residentially zoned areas using exterior trash disposal, all outside trash receptacles, outside storage areas, and open areas where machinery or vehicles are stored or repaired, shall be screened from view from public sidewalks, streets, and other areas from which the property is visible.
(1) Any screening shall be constructed with durable materials, such as quality wood fencing (not plywood), masonry block walls, or galvanized fencing, provided the galvanized fencing shall be “interwoven” with other material of green or earth tone colors, so that the galvanized fencing is relatively opaque.
(2) The screening shall be a minimum of 6 feet in height and shall not exceed 8 feet in height.
(C) Trash receptacles.
(1) (a) All trash receptacles, whether dumpsters or otherwise, shall be located on a concrete pad, enclosed by an opaque screen, with the height sufficient to obstruct from view, from a public road, sidewalk, or other open area, any trash or refuse placed in the trash receptacle.
(b) In no instance shall the property owner allow, trash, refuse, garbage, or other similar materials to accumulate so that the same would be visible above the required screening.
(2) Access to all screened trash receptacles shall be in a manner and fashion that shall not interfere with or block the public right-of-way, and any enclosure (screening) shall be sited so that service vehicles have convenient access to the same without interfering with public use of the right-of-way.
(D) Information on site plan. Any applicant proposing to construct a commercial building, use a commercial building, or change a use in commercial building shall submit to the Planning Commission a site plan which includes, along with those items required under other sections of this chapter, a designation of the placement of any trash receptacles, as well as the type and nature of any screening proposed to be used.
