The following development standards shall apply to all projects proposed within this Planned Institutional Development District.
(A) Minimum project area. The minimum district area must be five contiguous acres. Smaller areas may be zoned Planned Institutional Development District if they are contiguous to an existing Planned Institutional Development District.

(B) Front yard setback. The minimum front yard setback distance shall be 50 feet measured from the edge of the public right-of-way to the front building face.
(C) Side yard setback. The minimum side yard setback distance shall be 100 feet measured from the side yard property line to the side building face. When a side yard abuts a residential use or residential zoning district, then a minimum 50 foot bufferyard shall be required consistent with the bufferyard requirements set forth in §§ 153.190 through 153.201.
(D) Rear yard setback. The minimum rear yard setback distance shall be 100 feet measured from the rear yard property line to the rear building face. When a rear yard abuts a residential use or residential zoning district, then a minimum 50 foot bufferyard shall be required consistent with the bufferyard requirements set forth in §§ 153.190 through 153.201.
(E) Lot coverage. There shall be no maximum lot coverage for this district except as provided in the yard setback, off-street parking regulations and any other applicable regulation found in this Zoning Code.

(H) Common open space. A minimum of 10% of the land developed in any planned institutional development project shall be reserved for common open space for the users of the area being developed. The required common open space area shall consist entirely of active open space as defined in § 153.123.
(1) Active open space shall be designed with the goal to encourage active recreational use(s) for the users of the planned institutional development. Active open space may include, but may not be limited to the following uses: common gathering space, mowed open space, outdoor dining areas, exercise areas, and community garden areas.
(2) When the terrain and site layout permits, all open space areas shall be connected through pedestrian related facilities including but not limited to: sidewalks, hike/bike trails, other similar pedestrian pathways.

(I) Utility requirements. All public and private utility facilities and structures required to be newly constructed or relocated as a result of the project shall be placed underground within the project area and within any public right-of-way located adjacent to the project boundaries. Appurtenances to these systems which can be effectively screened may be excepted from this requirement if the Planning Commission finds that such exemption will not violate the intent or character of the proposed planned institutional development.
(K) Access control requirements. General standards for parking areas, circulation, and access shall be incorporated as part of the site plan following the standards set forth in § 153.165 including those applicable off-street parking and loading facilities standards contained in §§ 153.170 through 153.187.
