Planned residential developments and planned unit developments (mixed use) are always conditional uses in zones where allowed. The conditional use permit application and review procedures, therefore, serve as the primary procedures for review of planned developments. There are, however, additional submissions required for planned developments and one additional step in the review procedure (sketch plan review by the Administrator). A separate fee, as established by the City Council, must also be submitted for planned developments. The purpose of this section is to set forth the special application and review procedure for planned developments.
   (A)   Sketch plan submission.  Prior to formal submission of the full planned development plan, a sketch plan shall be submitted to the Administrator. The sketch plan shall be prepared by a registered architect, engineer or land surveyor currently licensed and registered by the appropriate State Board. At a minimum the sketch plan shall contain or be accompanied by the following:
      (1)   A sketch vicinity map including north arrow showing the location of the planned development in relation to neighboring tracts, subdivisions, roads and waterways;
      (2)   The boundaries of the tract and the portion of the tract proposed to be in the planned development;
      (3)   The total acreage of the planned development;
      (4)   Locations of any existing public streets or utilities and rights-of-way of the facilities;
      (5)   The existing and proposed uses of the land within the planned development and the existing uses of land adjoining it;
      (6)   General locations of existing natural features of the site such as wooded areas, water features and significant topographic features;
      (7)   The proposed street layout with approximate pavement and right-of-way width;
      (8)   Existing property lines and approximate (sketch) locations of proposed property lines within the development showing all proposed lots or other divisions of land;
      (9)   Sketch of conceptual building locations;
      (10)   The name, address and telephone number of the owner;
      (11)   The name, if any, of the proposed planned development;
      (12)   Streets and lots of adjacent developed or platted properties; and
      (13)   The zoning classification of the tract and of adjacent properties.
   (B)   Sketch plan review procedures.  The sketch plan should be submitted at least 30 days prior to the date the applicant expects to submit his or her formal application for the planned development/conditional use permit.
      (1)   The Administrator shall, within 21 days of receipt of the sketch plan, review the sketch plan for general compliance with the requirements of this chapter.
      (2)   The Administrator shall advise the applicant or his or her authorized agent of the regulations pertaining to the proposed planned development and the procedures to be followed in the preparation and submission of the formal application. One copy of the sketch plan shall be retained as a part of the record of the Administrator with another copy being returned to the applicant or his or her authorized agent along with any comments made by the Administrator.
   (C)   Formal plan submission.  Following the Administrator’s review and submission of comments on the sketch plan, or after 21 days following submission of the sketch plan has elapsed without the Administrator having submitted his or her comments to the applicant, the applicant may submit his or her formal application for the planned development and application for conditional use permit. The formal application must be submitted to the Administrator at least 15 days prior to the Planning Board meeting at which it is to be reviewed. Timing of the submission and waivers of submission deadlines shall in all respect conform to the requirements set forth in § 153.236(C) of this chapter.
      (1)   The formal plan shall contain all of the information set forth in § 153.236(A) of this chapter, and in addition shall contain or be accompanied by the following information:
         (a)   Title block containing development name, name of owner, date or dates plan was plan was prepared, a scale drawing in feet per inch listed in words or figures, north arrow, the name of the applicant;
         (b)   A sketch vicinity map with north arrow showing the relationship between the proposed planned development and surrounding area;
         (c)   The names, addresses and telephone numbers of all owners, mortgagees, registered land surveyors, land planners, architects, landscape architects and professional engineers responsible for the planned development;

         (o)   The name and location of any site or buildings within the proposed development or within any contiguous property that is listed on the U.S. Department of Interior’s National Register of Historic Places, or is designated as a local historic property by the county, or is within the HO-Historic Overlay Zone as set forth in this chapter.
      (2)   The Planning Board shall review the application for the planned development at the same time with its review of the application for a conditional use permit. If a conditional use permit (CUP) is recommended, the Planning Board shall then recommend whether to approve, deny or approve subject to changes being made, the plan for the planned development. The Planning Board shall issue the recommendation according to the same schedule for issuing a recommendation on the CUP as set forth in § 153.236 of this chapter.
      (3)   (a)   Once a recommendation has been received from the Planning Board, or the 45-day Planning Board review period has expired, the City Council shall initiate its review of the planned development plan. The City Council’s schedule for review and rendering a decision on the plan shall be in accordance with the same schedule and contemporaneous with the procedures set forth in § 153.237 of this chapter.
         (b)   In rendering its decision on the planned development plan the Council may approve the plan as submitted, disapprove or approve subject to changes being made to the plan by the applicant. After it has reviewed and rendered a decision on the planned development plan, the City Council shall render a decision on the CUP.
      (4)   Upon completion of the project (or each phase thereof) a complete set of “as-built” drawings shall be furnished to the city.
