The Public, Quasi-Public, and Institutional Lands and Facilities Zone (P-L) is established for the following purposes:
(a) To ensure that the public, quasi-public, and institutional use of property is related to the purposes and policies of the land use element of the General Plan;
(b) To recognize the public, quasi-public, and institutional nature of particular parcels of land and provide standards and guidelines for their continued use and future development; and
(c) To ensure that proposed public, quasi-public, and institutional structures and developments in the zone will be compatible with surrounding zones and uses with respect to adequate vehicular access and circulation, off-street parking, architectural and site design, landscaping, and other features.
The requirements of the P-L Zone are intended to apply to publicly owned property, property owned by quasi-public or public service entities, such as utility companies, property used or planned to be used for certain institutional facilities, such as hospitals and private schools and colleges, and certain private recreational facilities developed within the P-L Zone. It is explicitly not intended by this article to imply present or future public ownership of land within the Public, Quasi-Public, and Institutional Lands and Facilities Zone.
