§ 160.594  PROCEDURE.
   The city planning commission, after a public hearing, may approve alternatives for common open
space, parking reductions, landscaping buffer yards, signage master plans, and streetcar forms upon finding that an applicant has demonstrated that the intent of the appropriate zoning ordinance section can be more effectively met, in whole or in part, through an Alternative Site Plan. The planning commission encourages alternative site plans that enhance the aesthetics and improves the livability of the community through the Shape Sioux Falls 2035 Comprehensive Plan land use and development policies. Acceptable types of situations where alternative site plans will be approved are included with the following standards. Alternative site plans cannot allow variance from bulk regulations unless specifically delineated in the alternative site plan standards in §§ 160.598160.603.
