§ 159.086  NONRESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS.
   (A)   General Requirement.  If a proposed development includes land that is zoned for non-residential purposes, the Plan Commission may require any reasonable provision on the layout of the development that would help to further the purposes of this ordinance or the comprehensive plan.  A nonresidential development shall also be subject to all the requirements of site plan approval set forth in this chapter.  A nonresidential development shall also be subject to all the requirements of these regulations, as well as such additional standards required by the Commission, and shall conform to the proposed land use and standards established in the Comprehensive Plan and other plans of the city/county.
   (B)   Standards.  In addition to the principles and standards in these regulations, which are appropriate to the planning of all developments, the applicant shall demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Commission that the block, lot, and transportation network pattern proposed is specifically adapted to the uses anticipated and takes into account other uses in the vicinity.  The following principles and standards shall be observed:
      (1)   Each non-residential area or parcel shall be shown and marked on the plat as to its intended use.
      (2)   Proposed non-residential parcels shall be suitable in area and dimensions to the types of development anticipated.
      (3)   The engineer of appropriate jurisdiction shall approve in writing prior to secondary plat approval a provision that the proposed non-residential development will not conflict with traffic circulation patterns, and the requirements for driveway location and design can reasonably be implemented at no cost to the city/county.
      (4)   Every effort shall be made to protect adjacent residential areas from potential nuisance from a proposed nonresidential development, including the provision of extra depth in parcels backing upon an existing or potential residential development, and provisions for a permanently landscaped buffer strip when necessary.
      (5)   Truck routes shall be established so as to prevent industrial traffic from encroaching into adjacent residential areas.
      (6)   To the greatest degree possible, nonresidential developments shall be located on arterials or major collectors.
