1184.01   INTENT.
   In recognition of the special nature of the needs of elderly persons, it is necessary to establish a zoning district specifically for elderly living and care where elderly person's needs, whatever level of attention they may require, can be met ranging from minimal care in independent living units, through personal intermediate and skilled nursing care.
   A Senior Citizen Residential District (SCRD) and regulations therefor are established in order to achieve, among others, the following purposes:
   (a)   To provide appropriate developments of dwelling facilities for persons of retirement age in locations convenient to the City's social and welfare facilities, shops, public transportation and other needs of the senior citizen;
   (b)   To provide in such developments health, dining and recreational facilities for the comfort and convenience of the occupants;
   (c)   To regulate the bulk, height and spacing of buildings within the development in order to obtain proper light, air, privacy and open space for passive recreation and landscaped amenities;
   (d)   To protect adjacent residential properties by requiring adequate yards and screening; and
   (e)   To regulate the density of population within such district.
