§ 155.225  PURPOSE.
   (A)   The Traditional Neighborhood District (TND) is intended to promote development with a definable center which contains a variety of uses within walking distance of residential areas; encourage the protection of natural resources and open space by concentrating development and establishing requirements for open space conservation; allow denser development to provide the efficient use of infrastructure, including roads, water, sewer and other utilities; and provide a variety of housing types for varying incomes and ages.
   (B)   This district is intended to encourage development based on a neighborhood model where housing, businesses and other nonresidential uses coexist, providing the conveniences and comforts of modern living in an environment that lessens dependency on the automobile and provides feasible alternatives such as walking or bicycling.  In summary, the district purpose is to promote flexibility in development and encourage a mix of uses and housing types and create the sense of community common in neighborhoods planned using traditional design principles.
