§ 153.090  PURPOSE.
   The purpose of the C-1 Neighborhood Commercial District is to provide a planned, mixed-use and pedestrian-oriented commercial district. This district shall be organized to function as a cohesive destination-based shopping, entertainment and employment center serving a local and semi-regional market area. Thus, retail uses shall be encouraged which provide specialty and some major purchase goods, and which individually complement other uses in the district to allow maximum lot coverage for clustered sales space and utilization of shared parking facilities. Land uses within this district shall also include personal services, professional services and office uses that may attract a non-local customer base while maintaining the appropriate development scale and intensity desired for this district.  Residential dwelling units located above first floor retail or office uses shall also be encouraged to assist in creating a residential critical market mass within the district. Areas included in this district will be readily accessible via major and minor arterial streets and shall be organized to facilitate nuisance-free circulation of traffic and to avoid adverse impact on the utilization of adjacent areas.
