Jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of this chapter shall include all lands and water within the corporate limits of the Village of Clyman, Dodge County, Wisconsin.
Compliance. No structure, land or water shall hereafter be used and no structure or part thereof shall hereafter be located, erected, moved, reconstructed, extended, enlarged, converted or structurally altered without full compliance with the provisions of this chapter and all other applicable Village, county and state regulations.
The following use restrictions and regulations shall apply:
Principal uses. Only those principal uses specified for a district, their essential services and the following shall be permitted in that district.
Unclassified or unspecified uses. Unclassified or unspecified uses may be permitted by the Village Board, provided that such uses are similar in character to the principal uses permitted in the district.
Performance standards. Performance standards listed in Article VIII shall be complied with by all uses in all districts.
Conditional uses. Provisions applicable to conditional uses generally:
Conditional uses and their accessory uses are considered as special uses requiring for their authorization review, public hearing and approval by the Village Board in accordance with Article IV of this chapter excepting those existent at the time of adoption of this chapter.
Those existing uses which are classified as "conditional uses" for the district(s) in which they are located at the time of adoption of this chapter require no action by the Village Board to continue as valid conditional uses, and the same shall be deemed to be regular conditional uses.
Proposed change from permitted use in a district to conditional use shall require review, public hearing and approval by the Village Board in accordance with Article IV.
Conditional use(s), when replaced by permitted use(s), shall terminate. In such case(s), the reestablishment of any previous conditional use(s), or establishment of new conditional use(s) shall require review, public hearing and approval by the Village Board in accordance with Article IV.
Provisions in this chapter relating generally to conditional uses shall, except when in conflict with specific provisions relating to either regular or limited conditional uses (which specific provision would then control), be deemed to be applicable to both regular and limited conditional uses.
Conditional uses authorized by Village Board resolution shall be established for a period of time to a time certain or until a future happening or event at which the same shall terminate.
Uses not specified in chapter.
Uses not specified in this chapter which are found by the Village Board to be sufficiently similar to specified permitted uses for a district shall be allowed by the Zoning Administrator.
No lot, yard, parking area, building area or other space shall be reduced in area or dimension so as not to meet the provisions of this chapter. No part of any lot, yard, parking area or other space required for a structure or use shall be used for any other structure or use.
Site suitability. No land shall be used or structure erected where the land is held unsuitable for such use or structure by the Village Board by reason of flooding, concentrated runoff, inadequate drainage, adverse soil or rock formation, unfavorable topography, low percolation rate or bearing strength, erosion susceptibility, or any other feature likely to be harmful to the health, safety, prosperity, aesthetics and general welfare of this community. The Village Board, in applying the provisions of the section, shall, in writing, recite the particular facts upon which it bases its conclusion that the land is not suitable for certain uses. The applicant shall have an opportunity to present evidence contesting such unsuitability if he/she so desires.
Street frontage. All lots shall abut upon a public street or other officially approved means of access, and each lot shall have a minimum frontage of 30 feet at the building line; however, to be buildable, the lot shall comply with the frontage requirements of the zoning district in which it is located.
Principal structures. All principal structures shall be located on a lot. Only one principal structure shall be located, erected or moved onto a lot. The Village Board may permit as a conditional use more than one principal structure per lot in any district where more than one such structure is needed for the orderly development of the parcel. Where additional structures are permitted, the Village Board may impose additional yard requirements, landscaping requirements or parking requirements, or require a minimum separation distance between principal structures.
Dedicated street. No zoning permit shall be issued for a lot which abuts a public street dedicated to only a portion of its proposed width and located on that side thereof from which the required dedication has not been secured.
Lots abutting more restrictive districts. Lots abutting more restrictive district boundaries shall provide side and rear yards not less than those required in the more restrictive abutting district. This does not apply to adjacent residential districts. The street yard setbacks in the less restrictive district shall be modified for a distance of not less than 60 feet from the more restrictive district boundary line so such street yard setbacks shall be no less than the average of the street yards required in both districts.
Preservation of topography. In order to protect the property owner from possible damage due to change in the existing grade of adjoining lands, and to aid in preserving and protecting the natural beauty and character of the landscape, no change in the existing topography of any land shall be made which would result in increasing any portion of the slope to a ratio greater than 1 1/2 horizontal to one vertical, within a distance of 20 feet from the property line, except with the written consent of the owner of the abutting property and with the approval of the Village Board, or which would alter the existing drainage or topography in any way as to adversely affect the adjoining property. In no case shall any slope exceed the normal angle of slippage of the material involved, and all slopes shall be protected against erosion.
Decks. For purposes of this chapter, decks shall be considered a part of a building or structure.
Lots abutting two streets. Where a lot abuts on two or more streets or alleys having different average established grades, the higher of such grades shall control only for a depth of 120 feet from the line of the higher average established grade.
Double-frontage lots. Buildings on through lots and extending from street to street may have waived the requirements for a rear yard by furnishing an equivalent open space on the same lot in lieu of the required rear yard, provided that the setback requirements on both streets are complied with.
Preexisting lot. Where a lot has an area less than the minimum number of square feet per family required for the district in which it is located and was of record as such at the time of the passage of this chapter, such lot may be occupied by one family.
Open yards. Every part of a required yard shall be open to the sky, unobstructed, except tor accessory buildings in a rear yard, and the ordinary projections of sills, belt courses, cornices and ornamental features projecting not more than 12 inches.
Minimum living area. Each residential living unit in the Village of Clyman shall have a minimum of 960 square feet of living area. This provision shall be applicable to residential units of any kind, including, but not limited to, single-family, two-family, multifamily, mobile home or condominium dwellings.
