[R.O. 2012 §405.340; Ord. No. 522 §§1—3, 12-1-1992]
A. 
Purpose. The purpose of this District is to provide for elements of flexibility in design, placement, arrangement, bulk and other considerations involved in Planned Districts: to provide a framework within which the buildings and uses in the Planned District may be interrelated with adjacent development and areas; and to maintain the desired overall intensity of land use, desired population densities, and desired areas of open space.
B. 
Use Of The "P" District.
1. 
The Planned Development District must always be used in conjunction with one (1) of the other Zoning Districts, known as the "underlying district." The requirements of the "P" District shall be in addition to the requirements of the underlying district, except that the "P" District may modify some of the regulations of the underlying district in specific situations. A "P" District may be used in conjunction with any of the other Zoning Districts or with any combination of districts.
2. 
An application for rezoning to the "P" District shall include a Preliminary Development Plan and may include a concurrent request to change the underlying zoning classification. If the rezoning is approved, the new District shall include the designation of the underlying District followed by "P". For example, a Planned Development District of an "R-2" District shall be known as "R-2-P."
3. 
Approval of the rezoning based on the Preliminary Development Plan shall allow the applicant to submit a Final Development Plan for approval. No building or occupancy permit shall be issued until a Final Development Plan has been approved. The use of the "P" District shall be separate from the Subdivision Regulations of the City, and the Development Plans required by the "P" District shall not be construed as plats. It is recommended that the subdivision process follow the Rezoning/Preliminary Plan approval, but precede the approval of the Final Development Plan. Resubdivision may be a prerequisite to approval of the Final Development Plan.
C. 
Use Regulations. Any use permitted in the underlying zone shall be permitted. The uses permitted may be voluntarily restricted by the applicant, or restricted as a condition of approval by the Planning Commission.
D. 
Height Regulations. The height regulations provided for the underlying Zoning District shall be required, provided that the allowed height may be increased by one (1) floor or fifteen (15) feet upon a showing that the proposed structure is consistent in scale and bulk to the character of the community, and the increase in density as a result of the increase in height does not create an adverse effect on the value or utility of adjacent properly.
E. 
Yard Regulations. The yard regulations provided for the underlying Zoning District shall be required, provided that the yard regulations may be reduced upon a showing of sufficient open space accessible to occupants; a separation between structures for fire-fighting purposes; and that there is consistency with the visual character of the community. No yard reductions shall be permitted for those yard spaces which abut another District.
F. 
Use Regulations.
1. 
The proposed development shall provide access to the major street system in such a way that the traffic generated by the development will not cause an unreasonably hazardous condition nor inconvenience in the area.
2. 
Structures and traffic shall be arranged so that all principal buildings are accessible to emergency vehicles.
3. 
Parking shall be provided in a manner which reduces to a minimum its adverse physical impact in the area. Screening parking areas with landscaping or walls, breaking parking areas into smaller units by introducing landscaped areas or other physical separators are suggested approaches. The parking areas should be appropriately spaced to serve those units they represent.
4. 
The availability of services and location of public utilities shall have the approval of each agency involved. Evidence to this effect shall be presented with the Preliminary Development Plans.
5. 
Approval of the Final Development Plan may be conditioned by the Planning Commission or Board of Aldermen to minimize any negative impact on the community.
G. 
Application For Rezoning. A petition to change to a "P" Planned District shall be filed with the City, along with the filing fee as set forth by separate ordinance. A Preliminary Development Plan shall be attached and shall include the elements set forth in these Zoning Regulations. The process for approval shall be the same as for any rezoning as provided by these Zoning Regulations.
H. 
Approval Procedure. The approval by the Board of Aldermen of the Preliminary Development Plan and the concurrent rezoning to the "P" District shall be preceded by the publication and mailing of notice, a public hearing, and a recommendation by the Planning Commission. If the Board of Aldermen disagrees with the recommendation, the application shall be returned to the Planning Commission for reconsideration. Approval of the Preliminary Development Plan shall be valid for two (2) years from the date of its approval. The filing and approval of a Final Development Plan for any phase of the area contained in the Preliminary Plan shall extend the period of validity an additional two (2) years. Once approved, the zoning classification can only be changed through rezoning and cannot be changed by expiration of the Preliminary Development Plan.
I.

Contour lines shall show finished grading only;
2. 
The landscaping plan shall show the size and type of each tree, shrub and ground cover; and
3. 
Drawings showing the size, appearance and method of illumination for each sign.
The Final Development Plan shall substantially conform to the approved Preliminary Plan, shall be in final form for the issuance of a building permit, shall have been previously reviewed by the appropriate City Zoning Official and shall include a Construction Schedule Development. A final approval by the Board of Aldermen shall authorize construction to begin according to the Construction Schedule providing all appropriate permits have been received. Construction of at least the first stage of development shall begin within three (3) years from the date the ordinance of the zoning change was published in the newspaper. If construction does not begin within this period and no effort is made for an extension of time by the owner, the Final Development Plan shall be voided.
K. 
Building Permits.
1. 
On final approval by the Board of Aldermen, the owner shall provide five (5) copies of the approved Final Development Plan to the City.
2. 
The Zoning Official or his/her designee shall issue building permits only in accordance with the approved Final Development Plan.
L. 
Amendments. If any substantial variation or rearrangement of buildings, parking area and drives, entrances, heights or open spaces is requested by the applicant, the applicant shall proceed by following the same procedure previously followed and outlined in the Preliminary Development Plan.
M. 
Open Space. The Planning Commission may require the provision of open space to buffer dissimilar uses; to protect environmentally sensitive areas; or to counterbalance any reduction in lot area, yard size or bulk limitations.
1. 
Open space requirements. If the Planning Commission requires open space, the City and the applicant shall enter into an agreement providing for the establishment of any agency to maintain the open space. Such agreement shall include provision for default, cure by the City, and enforcement.
2. 
Disposition of open space. The agency established in the preceding Section shall not be dissolved or permitted to otherwise dispose of any open space by sale or otherwise without first offering to dedicate the same to the City.
The development plan process shall be required prior to any rezoning or issuance of a building permit for other than a single-family dwelling or church.

[R.O. 2012 §405.380; Ord. No. 522 §§1—3, 12-1-1992]
A. 
Purpose And Intent. An Overlay District is a mapped area with restrictions beyond those in the underlying zone. An Overlay District is usually used when there is a special public interest in an area that does not coincide with already mapped traditional zones. An Overlay District may cover parts of several zones or only a portion of the underlying zone. Because of this, it is much easier to set up an Overlay District than it is to write zoning categories for each of the pertinent districts. Generally, the underlying zone determines the permitted land uses, while the Overlay District may restrict the design, require additional setbacks, or set into place any other restrictions that will meet the District's purpose. In cases where there is a conflict between the requirements of the Overlay District and the underlying zone, the overlay restrictions apply.
The purpose and intent of this Overlay District is to protect the health, safety and welfare of persons and property in the vicinity of the Whiteman Air Force Base. This is accomplished by:
1. 
Reducing noise and safety hazards associated with aircraft operations;
2. 
Preserving the operational stability of Whiteman Air Force Base; and
3. 
Assisting in the implementation of policies and recommendations in the Knob Noster Comprehensive Plan and the Air Installation Compatible Use Zone (AICUZ) Report. The Overlay District further:
a. 
Promotes the compatibility between Air Force Base operations and land uses in the vicinity of the base through the establishment of criteria for regulation of land use, building height and development density;
b. 
Protects the public from exposure to areas with a high degree of potential for aircraft accidents by limiting the type of land uses that concentrate large numbers of people where aircraft accidents are most likely to occur;
c. 
Increases the protection of persons exposed to high levels of aircraft noise by requiring acoustical treatment of buildings located in these areas and regulating those uses which are sensitive to such noise; and
d. 
Prohibits uses which create potential hazards to the safe approach and departure of aircraft.
B. 
Applicability.
1. 
Where AOD and other City requirements or regulations apply to the same property, the more restrictive applies.
2. 
For property partially within the AOD, the following apply:
a. 
Where property is unplatted or undeveloped, only such portions of that land actually within the boundary lines of the AOD are considered.
b. 
Where the boundary line of the AOD divides a platted lot or building, that entire lot or building is deemed to be within the AOD.
3. 
For areas outside the City limits, which have not been annexed by the City of Knob Noster, Missouri, the AOD provisions apply upon annexation.
4. 
The provisions of the AOD apply to the following on all property located within the AOD boundaries:
a. 
All new structures;
b. 
All new uses of land or new uses of structures existing on December 1, 1992; and
c. 
Expansion of a structure existing on December 1, 1992, of greater than twenty-five percent (25%) of the building or lot area.
5. 
Nothing in this Section affects existing property or the right to its continued use for the purpose legally used at the time these Zoning Regulations become effective; nor do these Zoning Regulations affect any reasonable repair or alteration of buildings or property used for such existing purposes.
C. 
Definitions. As used in this Section, the following terms shall have these prescribed meanings:
ACCIDENT POTENTIAL ZONE (APZ)
