[Amended 1-24-2011 by L.L. No. 2-2011]
The purpose of the Land Conservation District is to delineate those areas where substantial development of the land in the way of buildings or structures is not desirable because of special or unusual conditions of topography, drainage or floodplain or other natural conditions, whereby considerable damage to buildings or structures and possible loss of life may occur due to the processes of nature and because of the lack of proper facilities or improvements resulting in the land not being suitable for development at the present time, where such facilities or improvements must be undertaken on an area-wide rather than individual parcel basis in order to serve adequately at a reasonable cost to the Village.
To promote these purposes in Land Conservation Districts, no building or other structure shall be built or land used, and no building shall be built, altered or erected to be used for any purposes other than that of:
Farm or other agricultural operation, including gardens, nurseries, greenhouses and usual farm accessory buildings, not including dwellings or buildings housing farm animals or fowl.
Park, playground, athletic field, golf course, riding academy, game preserve and other similar uses, including usual accessory buildings.
Municipal or public utility structures or facilities.
Fraternity, sorority, chapter or membership association, as defined herein.
Area. The minimum area per establishment shall be 40,000 square feet, and the minimum width of lot at the front building line shall be 150 feet.
Front yards. There shall be a front yard with a depth of not less than 80 feet into which space there shall be no encroachment of building construction.
Side and rear yards. No building shall be placed closer to a side or rear property line than 50 feet.
Height. For each foot that the height of a building or other structure exceeds 35 feet, the total width of the two side yards shall be increased by two feet.
