Site development plans shall conform with the following standards:
A. Relationship Of PID Site To Adjacent Areas: The design of a PID shall take into account the relationship of the site to the surrounding areas. The perimeter of the PID shall be so designed as to minimize undesirable impact of the PID on adjacent properties and, conversely, to minimize undesirable impact of adjacent land use and development characteristics on the PID.
B. Lot Size: The minimum lot size provisions of other chapters of the zoning title are waived in a planned industrial development.
C. Setback And Side Yard Requirements: Setbacks from the exterior boundary line of the PID area shall be comparable to or compatible with those of existing development of adjacent properties or, if adjacent properties are undeveloped, the type of development which may reasonably be expected on such properties given the existing zoning of such properties or the projections of the comprehensive plan.
D. Additional requirements will be imposed an parcels that are adjacent to 5th Street to provide for adequate buffering of residential and commercial uses. Additional buffering may include, but is not limited to, berms, fence or wall construction, setbacks, and/or landscaping.
E. Parking: Parking shall be provided in a PID in the same ratios for types of buildings and uses as required for the underlying zoning district.
F. Height Limits: Height limits will be imposed if necessary, to prevent detrimental effects.
G. Railway Transportation Terminals: Any railroad improvements shall comply with Union Pacific and applicable railroad regulations.
1. Each PID shall include a landscape plan. Landscaping must be included within the interior of the lot. Suitable ground cover may include native vegetation, grass, or bark mulch. Native vegetation or stands of trees existing prior to development of the site may be acceptable to meet all or part of the landscape requirements. All deciduous trees shall have a minimum of one and one half inch (1.5") caliper measured six inches (6") above existing grade and all conifers shall be six to eight feet (6' - 8') tall at time of planting.
2. Adjacent Areas: Parcels or lots which share a common boundary with properties in a residential or commercial district shall provide a fifteen foot (15') strip for landscaping along the common boundary.
3. The perimeters of all parking areas shall be landscaped in such a way as to create a division between streets and parking areas, at the same time not obstructing the view of any walkways, driveways, or streets around entrances or exits to the site.
a. Refuse container screening shall be required and be native and drought tolerant landscaping or material and design compatible with the overall architectural theme of the associated structure. Screening shall be at least as high as the refuse container.
b. No refuse container shall be permitted between a street and the front of a building.
c. Refuse collection areas shall be designed to contain all refuse generated on site and deposited between collections. Deposited refuse shall not be visible from outside the refuse enclosure.
5. Plot Plan: Plan Requirements: The site plan shall be accurately drawn, using an appropriate engineering or architect scale, and showing the following:
a. Boundaries and dimensions of the site;
b. Location and identification of all streets, alleys and easements on or abutting the site;
c. Location and approximate dimension of all conforming structures within one hundred feet (100') of the site on abutting properties;
d. Proposed location and dimensions of all on-site buildings;
e. Existing and proposed topography at a maximum of five foot (5') contours, or by an alternate method approved by the city;
f. Proposed landscaping including location, species and size at time of planting;
g. Existing vegetation in general and identifying all conifer and deciduous trees four inches (4") and greater in diameter measured at twenty four inches (24") above grade level;
h. Details of any proposed architectural barriers;
i. Location of existing and proposed driveways and parking surfaces, curbs and sidewalks.
j. Proposed lighting plan, including lighting for landscape, buildings, perimeters, streets, and parking lots.
6. Installation And Security Requirements:
a. Landscaping required pursuant to this chapter must be installed to the satisfaction of the city, in accordance with the approved site plan, no later than three (3) months after issuance of a certificate of occupancy for the project. The city may extend the time limit for compliance after issuance of a certificate of occupancy when circumstances beyond the control of the applicant warrant an extension.
b. The city may require performance bonds or other appropriate security, including letters of credit and set aside letters, to ensure landscaping will be installed and maintained for one (1) year, according to the approved plan and specifications.
7. Maintenance And Enforcement: All landscaped areas required by this code shall be planted according to accepted practice in good soil with a water source within seventy five feet (75') (except for self-sustaining natural-type growth commonly occurring in the vicinity of the development) and maintained with respect to pruning, trimming, watering or other requirements to create an attractive appearance and a healthy growing condition. Dead, diseased, stolen or vandalized plantings shall be replaced within three (3) months. Property owners shall keep the planting area reasonably free of weeds and trash. Lack of maintenance shall constitute a violation of this code. The city shall have the authority to enforce the standards set forth in this chapter and the conditions attached to all permits for development pursuant to application of this chapter.
