The following principals for proposing a PUD are recommended, but not all inclusive:
   (A)   The proposed development should be designed to produce an environment of stable and desirable character not out of harmony with its surrounding neighborhood and the town’s Comprehensive Plan;
   (B)   Interest and variety should be sought, by means of street design and changes in and mixtures of building types, heights, facades, setbacks, planting or size of open space. The design should be harmonious as a whole and not simply from street-to-street;
   (C)   Streets should curve to discourage fast movement of traffic; traffic calming devices should be integrated into street design; group parking areas should be screened, so that the vehicles are substantially hidden from the street;
   (D)   The natural amenities of the land should be preserved through maintenance of conservation areas and open spaces. A minimum of at least 20% of the gross area of the site should be retained in open space;
   (E)   Height of buildings in excess of 35 feet should be designed and planned to be reasonably consistent with the neighboring property and foster efficient use of existing public services and facilities;
   (F)   Within a primarily residential development, commercial and office uses, if proposed, should be scaled so that they primarily serve the occupants of the development. Commercial and office uses within the development should be at the front of the development and be accessed by an internal collector road; and
   (G)   Structures or buildings located at the perimeter of the development should face outwardly and be properly screened in a manner that sufficiently protects the privacy and amenities of the adjacent and neighboring property uses.
