A. 
Boundaries of these districts are hereby established as shown on the map entitled "Zoning Map--Village of Elm Grove, Wisconsin," dated April 9, 2000; which map accompanies and is herewith made a part of this chapter.[1] Such boundaries shall be construed to follow: corporate limits; U. S. Public Land Survey lines; lot or property lines; center lines of streets, highways, alleys, easements and railroad rights-of-way or such lines extended; unless otherwise noted on the Zoning Map.
[1]
Editor's Note: Said map is on file in the office of the Village Clerk and may be examined there during regular office hours.
B. 
Boundaries of the W-1 Wetland District were based on the Wisconsin Wetland Inventory Map for the Village of Elm Grove, dated December 16, 1987, and stamped "FINAL," and include, but are not limited to, all shoreland wetlands five acres or more in area, shown on those maps.[2]
[2]
Editor's Note: Said maps are on file in the office of the Village Clerk and may be examined there during regular office hours.
C. 
Boundaries of the Floodland Districts are hereby established as shown on the map entitled, "Supplementary Floodland Zoning Map ---Village of Elm Grove, Wisconsin," dated September 13, 1982, which map accompanies and is herewith made a part of this chapter.[3] The boundaries of the FWO Floodway Overlay District shall be determined by use of the scale contained on the Supplementary Floodland Zoning Map. The boundaries of the FFO Floodplain Fringe Overlay District shall be determined by the floodland limits shown on the Supplementary Floodland Zoning Map. The flood stages, under floodway conditions, contained on the Supplementary Floodland Zoning Map were developed from technical data contained in the Flood Insurance Study--Village of Elm Grove, Waukesha County, Wisconsin, published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and dated January 19, 1982. The information contained in the flood insurance study is further illustrated on the FEMA Flood Boundary and Floodway Map and Flood Insurance Rate Map, both maps dated July 19, 1982. Where a conflict exists between the floodland limits as shown on the Supplementary Flood Zoning Map and actual field conditions, the elevations from the one-hundred-year recurrence interval flood profile shall be the governing factor in locating the regulatory floodland limits.

24CFR 100.303 (April 1, 2015) 62 or over housing.
(a) The provisions regarding familial status in this part shall not apply to housing intended for, and solely occupied by, persons 62 years of age or older. Housing satisfies the requirements of this section even though:
(1) There are persons residing in such housing on September 13, 1988 who are under 62 years of age, provided that all new occupants are persons 62 years of age or older;
(2) There are unoccupied units, provided that such units are reserved for occupancy by persons 62 years of age or over;
(3) There are units occupied by employees of the housing (and family members residing in the same unit) who are under 62 years of age provided they perform substantial duties directly related to the management or maintenance of the housing.
(b) The following examples illustrate the application of paragraph (a) of this section:
Example (1): John and Mary apply for housing at the Vista Heights apartment complex which is an elderly housing complex operated for persons 62 years of age or older. John is 62 years of age. Mary is 59 years of age. If Vista Heights wishes to retain its "62 or over" exemption it must refuse to rent to John and Mary because Mary is under 62 years of age. However, if Vista Heights does rent to John and Mary, it might qualify for the "55 or over" exemption in § 100.304.
Example (2): The Blueberry Hill retirement community has 100 dwelling units. On September 13, 1988, 15 units were vacant and 35 units were occupied with at least one person who is under 62 years of age. The remaining 50 units were occupied by persons who were all 62 years of age or older. Blueberry Hill can qualify for the "62 or over" exemption as long as all units that were occupied after September 13, 1988 are occupied by persons who were 62 years of age or older. The people under 62 in the 35 units previously described need not be required to leave for Blueberry Hill to qualify for the "62 or over" exemption.
The B-1 Business District is intended to provide for individual or small groups of retail and customer service establishments serving primarily the convenience of the local neighborhood. The setting is that of a shopping center with adequate off-street parking. The character, appearance and operation of local centers shall be compatible with the character of the surrounding area.

A. 
Intent; conflicting provisions.
(1) 
The FWO Floodway Overlay District is intended to be used to protect people and property from flood damage by prohibiting the erection of structures that would impede the flow of water during periodic flooding. Permitting use of the floodway would increase damages in the broader floodplain by increasing flood stages. In delineating the FWO District, the effects of development within the associated flood fringe shall be computed. No increase in flood stage shall be permitted that is equal to or greater than 0.01 foot unless the Village has made appropriate legal arrangements with all affected units of government and all property owners affected by the stage increase and until the Village and all affected units of government have amended their water surface profiles and floodland zoning maps to reflect the increased flood elevations. No floodway overlay district changes shall be permitted where the cumulative effect of changes increases flood stages more than 1.0 foot. In addition to floodway delineated by detailed engineering methods, any unnumbered A Zones which appear on the Village's Flood Insurance Rate Map shall be placed in the FWO Floodway Overlay District.
(2) 
Overlay districts provide for the possibility of superimposing certain additional requirements upon a basic underlying zoning district without disturbing the requirements of the basic district. In the instance of conflicting requirements, the stricter of the conflicting requirements shall apply.
(3) 
Where there are conflicts between this section and the Floodplain Ordinance,[1] the Floodplain Ordinance shall take precedence.

Such fill shall extend for at least 15 feet beyond the limits of the structure placed thereon. All structures shall be provided with dryland access to lands outside the floodplain. Where existing streets or sewer lines are at elevations which make dryland access impractical, the Village may permit development where access roads are at or below the one-hundred-year recurrence interval flood stage, provided that the Village has written assurance from appropriate police and fire departments and emergency service agencies that rescue and relief service will be provided to properties in the area by wheeled vehicles during a flood event, or the Village has an adopted natural disaster plan concurred with by the Wisconsin Division of Emergency Government and approved by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The finished surface of the lowest floor (excluding basement or crawlway) shall be constructed or placed at an elevation that is at least two feet above the elevation of the one-hundred-year recurrence interval flood. Basement or crawlway floors may be placed at the one-hundred-year recurrence interval flood elevation, provided that the basement or crawlway is floodproofed to the flood protection elevation. Residential structures placed on fill may be removed from the Floodplain Fringe Overlay District, provided that the fill is contiguous to lands lying outside of the floodlands, and further provided that the property owner, or his agent, has complied with all the requirements for amending the Zoning Map as set forth in Article I of this chapter.
(2) 
Industrial structures, provided that the structure is permitted in the underlying district and provided that the fill requirements and dryland access requirements for residential structures in the FFO District are complied with. However, when the intent and purpose of this chapter cannot be fulfilled by filling the floodplain fringe due to existing and committed development, and when the Village Plan Commission has made a finding to this effect, all new structures and all additions to existing structures in the Floodplain Fringe Overlay District shall be floodproofed to a point two feet above the elevation of the one-hundred-year recurrence interval flood. Certification of floodproofing shall be made to the Building Inspector and shall consist of a plan or document certified by a registered professional engineer that the floodproofing measures are consistent with the flood velocities, forces, depths and other factors associated with the one-hundred-year recurrence interval flood level for the particular stream reach. Structures placed on fill may be removed from the Floodplain Fringe Overlay District, provided that the fill is contiguous to lands lying outside of the floodlands, and further provided that the property owner or his agent has complied with all the requirements for amending the Zoning Map as set forth in Article I of this chapter.
(3) 
Accessory structures, provided that the structure is not designed for human habitation, has a low flood-damage potential, is constructed and placed to provide minimum obstruction to flood flows (whenever possible, accessory structures should be placed with their longitudinal axis parallel to the flow of floodwaters), is firmly anchored to prevent them from floating away and restricting bridge openings and has all services facilities (such as electrical and heating equipment) at an elevation that is at least two feet above the one-hundred-year recurrence interval flood.
(4)

(4) 
Individually developed lots or improvements thereon may be transferred at any time after execution and recording of the development agreement if allowed by the terms of the development agreement.
F. 
Residential density calculations.
(1) 
Determination of residential density. Only one of three possible levels of residential density shall be allowed in a specific PDO District:
(a) 
The number of residential units allowed as a permitted use in the underlying zoning district; or
(b) 
The number of residential units allowed as a conditional use in the underlying zoning district, which can be less, but not more than, a maximum total density of 12 dwelling units per net acre; or
(c) 
The number of residential units allowed where an enhanced density is allowed in recognition of a project of exceptionally high overall quality as provided by § 335-30F(3).
(2) 
Density calculations involving residential use. Except as otherwise allowed by this subsection, residential unit density in all PDO Districts shall be calculated by considering all land encompassed within the proposed project area.
(3) 
Enhanced density.
(a) 
If, notwithstanding dimensional differentials, a proposed project uniformly contains exterior and interior materials, design details, workmanship and features of an exceptionally high quality, comparable to the highest quality tier of the Village's then current housing stock or its best commercial office structure, an "enhanced density" for residential units may be recommended by the Plan Commission and may be granted as part of the original PDO District approval process.
(b) 
If granted, the enhanced density level of residential use shall be in lieu of any other possible residential density.
(c) 
An enhanced density shall constitute a discretionary number of residential units that can be less than but not more than a maximum total of 22 residential units per net acre.
(d) 
The following criteria shall be considered by the Village Board of Trustees in determining whether to approve an enhanced density:
[1] 
Whether the project will provide better utilization of the land and better preservation of natural resources than would otherwise be realized if the site were developed either in conformity with the density requirements of the underlying district or as a PDO District without an enhanced density;
[2] 
Whether the project makes adequate provision such that an increase in residential density will not have an unreasonable adverse effect on neighboring properties, existing and/or proposed public rights-of-way and/or municipal and other public services as a result of the type, intensity and frequency of the use(s) associated with the proposed project;
[3] 
Whether the structures proposed for the project are harmonious with existing surrounding structures and land uses.
[4] 
Whether building materials have been selected and are proposed to be utilized in a manner that is harmonious with the natural environment and the general character of other buildings and structures in the vicinity of the proposed development.
[5] 
Whether the proposed project will result in the construction or upgrading of specific public infrastructure improvements that will benefit the public without cost to the Village.
[6] 
Whether the proposed project will enhance an existing structure that is deemed beneficial to the character of the neighborhood where it is situated.
(4) 
Mixed Compatible Use PDO District. The residential density of a Mixed Compatible Use PDO District project shall take into account the amount of nonresidential use in the project as follows:
(a) 
The average net interior square footage of all residential units ("ARU") upon completion of the project shall be calculated. This calculation shall not, however, include utility space, garage and areas, such as halls or other common areas, shared by all occupants.
(b) 
The total interior square footage of all space devoted to nonresidential ("TNR") uses shall be calculated. This calculation shall not, however, include utility space, garage areas for customer and employee parking and, where different portions of a building are owned or rented by different entities, areas, such as halls and other common areas, that are shared by more than one such entity.
(c) 
TRU is the total number of residential units anticipated upon completion of the project.
(d) 
Land size is the total size of the project in net acres.
(e) 
The effective residential density ("ERD") shall be calculated according to the expression:
ERD = [TRU + (TNR/ARU)] ÷ land size. The effective residential density shall not be greater than the level of residential density allowed for a project in § 335-30F(1).
