[2] 
The Village may waive in its discretion, the submission of any of the foregoing requirements in the case of site plan review generated by actions identified in § 91-11E(1)(a)[2][b]. The applicant must at a minimum submit a plan detailing the location of grading activity, tree removal, soil import/export for review and supporting documentation detailing/supporting the requested waiver. The Village Building Inspector will review the submitted documents, conduct a site visit and determine if a waiver of the site plan process is permissible.

(4) 
General considerations.
(a) 
In reviewing site plans, consideration shall be given to the public health, safety and welfare and to the comfort and convenience of the public in general, of the residents of the community at large and of the immediate neighborhood in particular.
(b) 
In reviewing site plan applications, the Board of Trustees shall give consideration to, but shall not be limited by, the following factors, among others:
[Amended 1-5-2012 by L.L. No. 9-2012]
[1] 
That all proposed vehicular and pedestrian accessways are adequate in width, grade, alignment and visibility, are not located too near street corners and other similar design and safety considerations.
[2] 
That sites are reasonably screened from the view of adjacent and/or nearby parcels and streets and that the general landscaping and general character of the site is such as to enhance the character of the Village and local community and is in character with the neighborhood. The site plan shall include an analysis of existing and proposed additional landscape improvements to comply with the intent of this section.
[3] 
That all existing trees over eight inches in diameter, measured three feet above the base of the trunk, shall be retained to the maximum extent possible. The Board of Trustees may require an applicant to submit a plan showing all such existing trees and/or all existing vegetation. If review pursuant to this section is required, no land clearing shall be conducted except pursuant to the approved site plan and not until the site plan approval has been filed and a building permit issued by the Building Inspector. The site plan shall identify all steep slope areas within the property. The site plan shall include an analysis of compliance with the Village Steep Slope Ordinance.[1]
[1]
Editor's Note: See Ch. 73, Steep Slopes.
[4] 
That all outdoor lighting is of such nature and design and arranged so as to preclude the diffusion of glare onto adjoining properties and streets.
[5] 
That building facades are compatible with the surrounding area.
[6] 
That the drainage system and layout proposal will afford an adequate solution to any reasonably anticipated drainage problems. The site plan shall provide information regarding the capacity of the existing stormwater drainage facilities on the site. The applicant shall provide sufficient drainage to comply with the Village Code. In cases where renovation or expansion of an existing building is proposed, the site plan shall provide sufficient drainage volume to accommodate all renovated structures and new structures. In the event that the applicant is renovating/expanding more than 50% of the building, the floor area of the entire building shall be considered in the drainage computation. The site plan shall include provisions for control of erosion during the construction process and after construction is complete. The erosion controls proposed shall be consistent with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation criteria.
[7] 
That the general health, safety and welfare of the Village and the local community are not negatively affected by the proposed site plan.
[8] 
That the proposed site plan will provide development in harmony with, and which will have a positive influence upon, the community.
(5) 
Considerations relating to Waterfront Preservation Districts. The visual impact of proposed development shall be minimized in terms of views from the site and adjacent roads to Huntington Bay or Huntington Harbor and from Huntington Bay or Huntington Harbor to the site. Analysis shall consider the materials used, the massing of buildings, the scale of development, the view of the water from residences upland of the site and the use of landscaping and natural growth. The possible intrusion of new development on the visual setting of the existing dwellings and/or historical structures on nearby properties shall also be evaluated, as well as the possible impact on wetlands. Site design and construction management shall be undertaken in a manner so as to prevent adverse effects from erosion, siltation and flooding. All site plans must be prepared by a New York State licensed professional engineer, architect or landscape architect.
