In addition to the general criteria established in Section 1177.03, the following specific conditions shall apply.
(a) Supplementary Conditions and Safeguards. Nothing in these regulations shall prohibit the Planning Commission from prescribing reasonable supplementary conditions and safeguards in addition to the requirements in this Chapter in order to ensure compliance with the criteria set forth in Section 1177.03, General Criteria for all Conditional Uses.
(b) Conformance with District Regulations. A conditional use shall conform to the regulations of the district in which it is located and to other requirements of this Planning and Zoning Code, as well as satisfy the conditions, standards, and requirements of this Chapter. Whenever there is a difference between the provisions of the conditional use regulations and the district regulations, the provisions of this Chapter shall prevail, unless clearly indicated differently in these regulations.
(c) Overall Development Standards.
(1) Lighting shall not constitute a nuisance and in no way shall impair safe movement of traffic on any street or highway.
(2) Floodlights, loudspeakers or similar devices shall not be constructed or used in any manner that will cause hazards or annoyance to the public generally or to the occupants of adjacent property.
(3) Exterior lighting with respect to the number of fixtures, height of the fixtures from the ground, light intensity, and light trespass on adjacent properties or a public right-of-way shall be compatible with the surrounding neighborhood.
(4) The conditional use will be designed and constructed so that all access drives, access points to public streets, driveways, parking and service areas shall be in compliance with the regulations set forth in the Codified Ordinances of Moreland Hills, Ohio.
(5) The conditional use shall be designed to minimize potential adverse impacts on traffic congestion. The Planning Commission may require traffic studies, if necessary, at the developer's cost to ensure compliance with this condition.
(6) Landscaping, mounds and fencing shall be incorporated into the development plan for a conditional use in a manner and at an intensity, as prescribed by the Planning Commission, to minimize any potential adverse impacts the proposed use may have.
(7) The proposed use shall not generate excessive noise beyond the premises. In order to minimize any negative effects from the above referenced noise, the Planning Commission may require additional noise reduction measures to assure that the level of noise is no more than the prevailing noise levels of permitted uses in the District.
(8) All access drives shall be located as far as practicable from an existing intersection in order to maximize traffic safety and minimize congestion and constricted turning movements and minimize the impact on the surrounding areas.
(9) Greater setbacks than the minimums prescribed in this Chapter and in this Code may be imposed by the Planning Commission when the scale of any wall, because of its excessive length or height, at the minimum setback line could adversely impact adjacent properties.
(10) The location, dimensions, and design concept of any proposed signage should be provided at the time of the conditional use application.
(11) All activities, programs, and other events shall be directly related to the approved conditional use and shall be adequately monitored by the occupant or operator so as to prevent any hazard and to assure against any disturbance or nuisance to surrounding properties, residents, or to the community in general.
