(A) A special use permit shall be required for approval of any new development, enlargement or rebuilding of a structure or new use, license or certificate of compliance in any P-D zone.
(B) All requirements that apply in the basic zone to which the P-D designation is attached shall apply in the P-D zone, but such requirements may be modified by conditions imposed on the special use permit. Such conditions shall be designed to enhance the public welfare. Such conditions that concern numerical standards shall not increase or decrease by more than 25 percent the requirements that apply in the basic zone.
(C) If the basic zone to which the P-D designation is attached does not have requirements or standards, standards shall be set as shown on the development plan approved with the special use permit. Conditions as outlined in subsection (D) below may also be applied.
(D) Such conditions include, but are not limited to:
(1) If a P-D designation is requested on a development application, conditions requiring that development substantially conform to the plans or uses proposed in connection with the application for zoning or rezoning;
(2) Conditions to reduce or eliminate obnoxious characteristics of the development, such as noise, light, glare, smoke and odor;
(3) Conditions to provide sufficient off-street parking and loading spaces not required in the basic zone; to provide parking areas, access and traffic circulation patterns designed to segregate pedestrians from vehicles, prevent traffic congestion within the parcel or on nearby streets and protect the privacy of abutting uses and residential streets; to reduce the number of parking spaces required in the basic zone if such requirements are demonstrated to be excessive, as for housing for seniors; to require that off-street parking spaces be enclosed; and to waive carports and garages if parking spaces are not visible from the street or other public right-of-way;
(4) Conditions increasing or reducing the height of development, including fences; increasing or decreasing the number of dwelling units; increasing or decreasing landscaping; increasing or decreasing projections into required yard areas; increasing or decreasing sign sizes; increasing or decreasing minimum lot sizes and setbacks; and requiring design and architectural elements that reduce conflicts between the development and nearby property.
