[Ord. No. 468-2011 §1, 3-15-2011]
A. 
General Provisions.
1. 
A "C-P" Planned Business District may be established on a tract of land in single ownership or under unified control, provided that a preliminary development plan for a planned business district has been prepared and submitted in compliance with the regulations and requirements of this Section.
2. 
Application shall be made to the Planning and Zoning Commission for the rezoning of property for the planned business district.
3. 
The new area of land to be included in a "C-P" Planned Business District and so designed shall be at least three (3) acres in size. The term "net area", as used herein, shall not include any areas within dedicated highways, streets, alleys, or any other public ways or public property.
4. 
The location of any "C-P" Planned Business District shall be on property which has an acceptable relationship to major thoroughfares, and the Planning and Zoning Commission must satisfy itself as to the adequacy of the thoroughfare to carry the additional traffic generated by the development.
5. 
The plan for the proposed development must present a unified and organized arrangement of buildings and service facilities which shall be a fundamental relationship to the properties comprising the planned development.
6. 
The requirements and regulations herein prescribed pertaining to height, open space, setbacks, parking and loading may be adjusted or modified by variance by the Board of Adjustment before a "C-P" Planned Business District is established, so that the property in question may be developed in a reasonable manner and at the same time will not be detrimental to the public welfare and the interest of the community, but in keeping with the general intent and spirit of the zoning regulations.
B. 
Preliminary Plan.
1. 
The proponents of a planned business district shall prepare and submit a preliminary development plan to the Planning and Zoning Commission for its inspection and review, upon which plan the Commission shall advertise and hold a public hearing. This preliminary plan of the property proposed to be zoned as a "C-P" Planned Business District drawn to scale shall show the boundaries of the property proposed to be zoned, the existing topography with contour intervals not greater than two (2) feet, unless waived by the Commission, and the proposed size, location and arrangement of buildings, parking areas, with proposed arrangement of stalls and number of cars, entrance and exit driveways, and their relationship to existing and proposed streets, alleys, and other public ways or public property, drainage plan, and any additional information which may be reasonably required by the Commission. The plan shall show sufficient proposed control grades to interpret the intent of the developer. The preliminary plan shall also show the development of adjacent properties within two hundred (200) feet, including the location and type of buildings and structures thereon. If the planned business district is proposed in an unplatted area, the preliminary plan shall be accompanied by a plat, giving the full legal description of the boundaries of the property to be included in the areas sought to be zoned as a planned business district.
2. 
It shall also be accompanied by a plan, drawn to scale, showing the general arrangement of streets within the remainder of this ownership, which plat need not include more than one thousand (1,000) feet from the boundaries of the area to be zoned as a planned business district.
3. 
The developer shall indicate, on the preliminary plan, the stages which will be followed in the construction of the planned center.
4. 
If this preliminary plan is found to comply with the intent of the requirements and regulations set forth in this Section, the Planning and Zoning Commission shall, upon approval of the preliminary plan, prepare and submit to the City Council a request for an amendment to the Zoning District Map, which amendment is to provide for and establish a "C-P" Planned Business District for the land covered by a preliminary plan. A public hearing shall be held at the time this amendment is pending before the Council, as provided by law, and approval of the amendment shall constitute approval of the plan.
5. 
Upon approval of the zoning change by amendment to the Zoning District Map, the proponent shall submit a final development plan to the Planning and Zoning Commission for its review and recommendation. The final development plan may be submitted separately for the first (1st) and each successive stage of construction.
C. 
Final Plan.
1. 
It shall be the responsibility of the Planning and Zoning Commission to determine that each stage, or all, of the final development plan conforms to the intent of the preliminary plan on which the zoning change was made. The Commission, having reviewed the final development plan for any or all stages of the development, and finding that it conforms to the intent of the preliminary plan, shall approve such plan and submit it to the City Council for approval. Upon approval of the Council, such plan shall be filed for record in the office of the City Clerk.
2. 
If the final development plan fails to conform to the intent of the preliminary plan submitted in support of the rezoning, such final development plan may be submitted to the Planning and Zoning Commission as an amended preliminary plan, upon which the Commission shall advertise and hold a public hearing. The procedure shall be the same as for the original preliminary plan.
3. 
No building permit shall be issued for any construction in this center until the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council shall have approved the final development plan, covering at least the first (1st) stage of development.
4. 
A final development plan, prepared for each succeeding stage, shall also be reviewed by the Commission and the Council, and, when approved, shall be filed in the office of the City Clerk.
5. 
The proponents of a planned business district shall prepare and submit a schedule of construction in one (1) or more stages, which construction shall begin within a specified period following the Council's final approval of the final development plan or any stage thereof. Failure to begin the construction as scheduled shall void the plan, as approved, unless a request for an extension of time is made by the proponents to the Planning and Zoning Commission, and approved by said Commission and by the City Council. If, for any reason, the plan is abandoned, or if the construction is terminated, during or after the completion of any stage and there is ample evidence that further development is not contemplated, the amendment establishing such "C-P" Planned Business District may be repealed by the Council and the zoning of the entire tract, or the portion which is undeveloped as a "C-P" Planned Business District, may be changed to a suitable classification.
6. 
After the final development plan has been approved and the zoning change made, and when, in the course of carrying out this plan, adjustments or rearrangements of building, parking areas, entrances, heights or open spaces are requested by the proponents, and such requests conform to the standards established by the approved final development plan, for the area to be covered by buildings, parking spaces, entrances, heights, setback and other requirements, such adjustments may be approved by the Council upon application, and after receiving the recommendations of the Planning and Zoning Commission.
7. 
The plan shall meet the following requirements as to use, height, open space, off-street parking and loading and all driveways or public access.

In addition, a filling station may have one (1) freestanding sign to be approved as a part of the preliminary plan as to size and location.

A. 
Building Design Standards.
1. 
Overview.
a. 
These standards are prepared to provide general assistance to building, property and business owners of the City's downtown business district and the Historic Preservation District(s) ("HPD"). These standards are designed to advise building, property and business owners on the preservation and rehabilitation of properties located within a "HPD". The intent of these standards is to assist the long-term preservation of the area's significance through preservation of historical materials and features. The focus of rehabilitation includes materials, construction types, sizes and encompasses the facade of buildings within any area designated as a "HPD".
b. 
"Rehabilitation" is defined as the process of returning a property to a state of utility through repair or alteration, which makes possible an efficient contemporary use while preserving those portions and features of the property which are significant to its historic, architectural and cultural values. It is recognized that rehabilitation may require repairs or alterations to provide efficient contemporary use; however, these repairs or alterations should not damage or destroy materials or features that are important in defining the building's historical character.
2. 
Introduction to the standards. Primary concerns for building rehabilitation focus on the building's important or "character defining" architectural materials and features yet make possible an efficient, contemporary use of the property. Identified below are key terms related to an approvable restoration/rehabilitation project:
a. 
Identify, retain and preserve. It is important to identify, retain and preserve the architectural materials and features that are important in defining the historic character of the property. These architectural features should include, but are not limited to, windows, doors, ornamental ironwork, transoms, storefront ornamental brickwork.
b. 
Protect and maintain. After materials and features are identified, issues to protect and maintain must be addressed. Protection and maintenance generally involves the least degree of intervention and is preparatory to other work.
c. 
Repair and replace. Repair of character-defining materials and features is recommended whenever possible. Guidance for repair work is available from a variety of resources. Replacement of an entire feature with new material may be required due to a high degree of deterioration or damage. When replacement is appropriate, the entire feature should be replaced "in kind", as near to the original feature as possible, with a solution that is compatible to the property.
B. 
Definitions. The following definitions apply to this Section:
ALLEY
A thoroughfare through a block or buildings giving access to the rear of lots or buildings.

D. 
Certificate Of Appropriateness — When Required. A certificate of appropriateness shall not be required for interior construction or interior alteration of any building within a "HPD". A certificate of appropriateness shall be required before the following actions affecting the facade of any building within a "HPD" may be undertaken:
1. 
Any construction, alteration, removal or any demolition in whole or in part regardless of whether a permit from the City is required.
2. 
Any construction, alteration, removal or demolition, in whole or in part, proposed by the City, for a City-owned landmark or building within a "HPD".
E. 
Certificate Of Appropriateness — Procedure.
1. 
An application for a certificate of appropriateness shall be made on forms provided by the City Clerk and approved by the HPC. The application shall identify the facts which support a determination that the proposed actions meet the standards for review and design guidelines set forth in this Section.
2. 
After determining that the application for certificate of appropriateness is complete, the City Clerk shall schedule the application for consideration by the HPC within thirty (30) days. If a fully completed application for a certificate of appropriateness has not been acted upon within thirty (30) days after the date the application was filed with the City Clerk, it shall be deemed approved unless tabled or continued with the consent of the applicant. No motion to table or continue shall be made without the consent of the applicant.
3. 
A denial of a certificate of appropriateness shall be accompanied by a statement of the reasons for the denial. The HPC shall make recommendations to the applicant concerning the changes, if any, in the proposed action that would cause the HPC to reconsider its denial and shall confer with the applicant and attempt to resolve as quickly as possible the differences between the owner and the HPC. The applicant may resubmit an amended application that takes into consideration the recommendations of the HPC.
4. 
Any person aggrieved by the decision of the HPC may appeal to the Board of Adjustment by filing a notice of appeal with the City Clerk within thirty (30) days of the decision of the HPC. Notice of the HPC's decision shall be mailed to the applicant unless the applicant or the applicant's agent was present at the meeting at which the decision was made. The Board of Adjustment shall provide a hearing and render a decision.
F. 
Certificate Of Appropriateness — Standards For Review And Design Guidelines. In considering an application for a certificate of appropriateness, the HPC shall be guided by the following standards and design guidelines.
1. 
The distinguishing original qualities or character of a facade or site and its facade should not be destroyed. The removal or alteration of any historic material or distinctive architectural features should be avoided when possible.
2. 
Changes which may have taken place in the course of time are evidence of the history and development of a building or site. Changes made prior to 1950 that have acquired significance in their own right should be treated the same as if they were part of the original facade.
3. 
Distinctive stylistic features or examples of skilled craftsmanship which characterize a building or site should be preserved when possible.
4. 
Deteriorated architectural features should be repaired, rather than replaced, whenever practicable. If replacement is necessary, the new material should match the material being replaced in design, color, texture and other visual qualities. Repair or replacement of missing architectural features should be based upon accurate duplication of features, substantiated by historic, physical or pictorial evidence, rather than on conjectural designs or the availability of different architectural elements from other buildings.
5. 
The surface cleaning of buildings should be undertaken with the gentlest means possible. Sandblasting and other cleaning methods that will damage the historic building materials should be avoided when possible.
6. 
Every reasonable effort should be made to protect and preserve archaeological resources affected by or adjacent to any project.
7. 
Contemporary design for alterations and additions to existing properties and for new construction may be permitted when such alterations, additions or new construction do not destroy significant historical, architectural or cultural material, and such design is compatible with the size, scale, material, colors and character of the property, neighborhood.
8. 
Although alleys shall not be held to the standard of the building's facade, attention shall be given so as to not allow alleys to distract from the general qualities or character of the building's facade or the "HPD" in general. Alleys which are in direct view of a public thoroughfare shall be treated so as to aesthetically blend with the building. Any murals, paintings, images or advertisement shall be so designed as to identify, retain and preserve the features defining the historic character of the building.
9. 
Whenever possible, new construction, additions or alterations to buildings should be done in such a manner that, if such additions or alterations were to be removed in the future, the essential form and integrity of the facade would be unimpaired.
10. 
The height of any proposed alteration should be compatible with the style and character of that building. The height of any proposed construction should be compatible with the style and character of the buildings within a "HPD".
11. 
The proportions and relationships between doors and windows should be compatible with the architectural style and character of the buildings within a "HPD".
12. 
The scale of the building after alteration, construction or partial demolition should be compatible with its architectural style and character and with buildings within a "HPD".
13. 
Facades should blend with other buildings with regard to directional expression. Buildings should be compatible with the dominant horizontal or vertical expression of buildings within the district. The directional expression of a building after alteration, construction or partial demolition should be compatible with its original architectural style and character.
14. 
Architectural details including materials and textures should be treated so as to make a building compatible with its original character or significant architectural style and to preserve and enhance the building or "HPD".
G. 
Certificate Of Economic Hardship.
1. 
A person whose application for a certificate of appropriateness has been denied or granted conditionally may apply for a certificate of economic hardship. Alternatively, an application for a certificate of economic hardship may be filed with the application for certificate of appropriateness. Applications shall be made on forms provided by the City Clerk and approved by the HPC. If a fully completed application for a certificate of economic hardship has not been acted upon within thirty (30) days after the date the application was filed with the City Clerk, it shall be deemed approved, unless tabled or continued with the consent of the applicant. No motion to table or continue shall be made without the consent of the applicant. The application shall identify facts which support a determination that denial of the application will deprive the owner of the property of reasonable use of or a reasonable economic return on the property.
2. 
An application for certificate of economic hardship may include the following information:
a. 
Estimate of the cost of the proposed construction, alteration, repair, demolition or removal and an estimate of any additional cost that would be incurred to comply with the recommendations of the HPC for changes necessary for the issuance of a certificate of appropriateness.
b. 
A report from a licensed engineer or architect with experience in rehabilitation as to the structural soundness of any buildings on the property and their suitability for rehabilitation.
c. 
Estimated market value of the property in its current condition; after completion of the proposed construction, alteration, repair, demolition or removal; after any changes recommended by the HPC; and, in the case of a proposed demolition, after renovation of the existing property for continued use.
d. 
In the case of a proposed demolition, an estimate from an architect, developer, real estate consultant, appraiser or other real estate professional experienced in rehabilitation as to the economic feasibility of rehabilitation or reuse of the existing building on the property.
e. 
Applicant may demonstrate with factual data evidence that the hardship is not self-created. If the property is income producing, the applicant may provide detailed annual income and expense reports for the property for the last two (2) years, rent rates and capitalization rates for the property and comparable properties and any other pertinent information that would substantiate the applicant's claim concerning economic hardship.
f. 
Appraisals obtained within the previous two (2) years by the owner or applicant in connection with the purchase, financing or ownership of the property.
g. 
Any listing of the property for sale or rent, price asked and offers received, if any, within the previous two (2) years.

The City Clerk shall schedule the application for consideration by the HPC within thirty (30) days.
4. 
Notice of the HPC's decision shall be mailed to the applicant unless the applicant or the applicant's agent was present at the meeting at which the decision was made.
5. 
Any person aggrieved by the decision of the HPC may appeal to the Board of Adjustment by filing a notice of appeal with the City Clerk within thirty (30) days of the decision of the HPC. The Board of Adjustment shall provide a hearing and render a decision.
H. 
Continuing Validity Of Certificates. Certificates of appropriateness and certificates of economic hardship shall be issued for a period of eighteen (18) months and are renewable. Certificates of appropriateness and certificates of economic hardship shall become void if the work authorized by the certificate is not commenced within six (6) months of the date of issuance.

Stop Work Orders. The Building Inspector is authorized to issue a stop work order under the procedures set forth in the City's building code when any work on any building requiring a certificate of appropriateness is being performed without a certificate of appropriateness or a certificate of economic hardship or in violation of the terms of a certificate of appropriateness or a certificate of economic hardship.
J. 
Signs. All signs for buildings in a "HPD" not specified in the application for "HPD" designation must receive a certificate of appropriateness from the HPC, which shall review the proposed sign in accordance with the following general guidelines:
1. 
Signs should be designed and placed so as to appear an integral part of the building design and to respect the neighboring properties and the "HPD" in general.
