A. 
Statement of purpose.
(1) 
The purpose of the Environmental Protection Overlay Districts (EPOD) established in this section is to provide special controls over land development located in sensitive environmental areas within the Town of Webster. These districts and the regulations associated within them are designed to preserve and protect unique environmental features, including the steep slopes and woodlots along Irondequoit Bay and floodplains town-wide. They are also intended to prevent the irreversible loss of natural resources and the loss of property values.
(2) 
The regulations contained in each Environmental Protection Overlay District (EPOD) are not intended to be substituted for other general zoning district provisions and should be considered as additional requirements to be met by the applicant or developer prior to project approval. The purpose of the overlay districts is to provide the Town with an additional level of review and regulation that controls how land development permitted by the Town's primary zoning districts should occur in sensitive or unique environmental areas.
B. 
General regulations.
(1)

D. 
EPOD(2) Steep Slopes Protection District.
(1) 
Purpose. The purpose of the Steep Slopes Protection District is to minimize the impacts of development activities on steep slopes around Irondequoit Bay in the Town of Webster by regulating activities in such areas and by requiring review and permit approval prior to project commencement. The potential developmental impacts within the Steep Slopes Protection District include soil erosion and sedimentation, destruction of vegetation, increased runoff rates and slope failure. The regulations contained in this district are designed to minimize the disturbance or removal of existing vegetation, prevent increased erosion and runoff, maintain established drainage systems, locate development where it is less likely to cause future slope failures and retain as much as possible the natural character of these areas.
(2) 
Delineation of district boundaries.
(a) 
The Steep Slopes Protection District shall be delineated on the Official Town of Webster EPOD Maps and shall include all areas with a fifteen-percent or greater slope and which are located within that sector of the Town described on the Boundary Map attached as Appendix I. The Commissioner of Public Works and the Town Engineer may consult other information, including but not limited to soil survey reports prepared by the Soil Conservation Service, topographic maps provided by the United States Geological Survey, field surveys and other appropriate sources, in order to more accurately locate and delineate Steep Slopes Protection District boundaries within said defined sector of the Town.
(b) 
The following additional areas shall also be considered to be included within the definition of a "steep slope":
[1] 
A transition zone at the top of the slope, defined as that area containing soil classes, as defined in the Monroe County Soil Survey, with moderate to severe limitations for development and recreational use as determined in a site-specific high-intensity soil survey.
(3) 
Interpretation of district boundaries.
(a) 
The Commissioner of Public Works, subject to the provisions of this Code, shall be responsible for interpreting Environmental Protection Overlay District boundaries based on an interpretation of the Official Town of Webster EPOD Maps as well as the use of various criteria set forth in this section for determining such district boundaries. The Commissioner of Public Works may request the assistance of the Town Engineer or other appropriate department or agency in making such a determination. Reviews of a determination of the Commissioner of Public Works regarding boundaries of overlay districts shall be made, at the applicant's request, by the Town Planning Board in accordance with the public hearing procedures of § 228-7A of this Code.
(b) 
Where Environmental Protection Districts overlay any primary zoning district delineated on the Official Zoning Map of the Town of Webster, the requirements of the overlay district shall be met in addition to any requirements specified for development in the respective primary zoning district.
(4) 
Regulated activities. No person shall conduct any of the following activities within any Steep Slopes Protection District in the Town of Webster unless such person has first applied for and obtained an EPOD development permit pursuant to the requirements of this section.
(a) 
Construction of new buildings or structures or additions to or modifications of existing buildings or structures.
(b) 
Clearing of or constructing on any land area within the district, except for those activities exempted from the permit requirements of this section as indicated in Subsection B(2)(a).

(a) 
In granting, denying or conditionally approving any application for an EPOD development permit, the Town Planning Board or Commissioner of Public Works shall consider the effect that the proposed regulated activity will have on the public health, safety and welfare and the protection or enhancement of the fragile and environmentally sensitive steep slope areas within the Town. The Commissioner of Public Works or the Planning Board may request that the applicant provide an intensive soils survey.
(b) 
The Planning Board or the Commissioner of Public Works will consider the following standards in reaching a decision:
[1] 
That the stable angle of repose of the soil classes found on the site has been used to determine the proper placement of structures and other development-related facilities within the plateau area. Site-specific calculations of the stable angle of repose for the site are to be determined by a professional soil scientist or engineer using the soil classes and nomenclature contained in the Monroe County soil surveys and obtained for the site by borings as welt as high-intensity soil survey data provided by the applicant.
[2] 
That the stability of soils will be maintained or increased to adequately support any construction thereon or to support any landscaping, agricultural or related activities. This shall be documented by soil bearing data provided by a qualified testing laboratory or engineer at the expense of the developer.
[3] 
That no proposed activity will cause uncontrolled erosion or slipping of soil or cause sediment to be discharged into Irondequoit Bay or its wetlands or tributaries.
[4] 
That discharge of stormwater shall be controlled so as not to cause or increase erosion and sedimentation problems downstream or to cause any damage to or flooding of any facilities or property.
[5] 
That plant life located on the slopes outside of the minimum area that needs to be disturbed for carrying on approved activities shall not be destroyed. Plants or other acceptable ground cover shall be reestablished in disturbed areas immediately upon completion of development activity so as to prevent any of the harmful effects set forth above, to maintain the natural scenic characteristics of the Irondequoit Bay or other scenic areas.
[6] 
That access down slopes shall be provided with ramp slopes no greater than 1:6 and side slopes no greater than 1:3 if not terraced or otherwise structurally stabilized. Disturbed nonroadway areas shall be stabilized with vegetation or other approved physical means. Completed roadways shall be stabilized and adequately drained.
[7] 
That construction of erosion-protection structures, particularly along the water side of eroding bluffs, shall be permitted to provide protection of bluff features according to the following standards:
[a] 
All erosion-protection structures shall be designed and constructed according to generally accepted engineering principles which have demonstrated success or a likelihood of success in controlling long-term erosion. Such engineering principles are contained in publications of the United States Soil Conservation Service. The protective measures proposed must have a reasonable probability of controlling erosion on the immediate site for at least 30 years.
[b] 
A long-term maintenance program shall be included in any application for construction, modification or restoration of an erosion-protection structure. Such programs shall include specifications for normal maintenance of degradable materials and the periodic replacement of removable materials.
[c] 
All material used in such structures shall be durable and capable of withstanding inundation, wave impacts, weathering and other effects of storm conditions. Individual component materials may have a working life of less than 30 years only when a maintenance program ensures that they will be regularly maintained and replaced as necessary to attain the required 30 years of erosion protection.
[d] 
The construction, modification or restoration of erosion-protection structures shall not be likely to cause any measurable increase in erosion at the development site or other locations and prevent adverse effects to natural protective features, existing erosion-protection structures and natural resources such as significant fish and wildlife habitats.
[8] 
Drainage of stormwater shall not cause erosion or siltation, contribute to slope failures, pollute groundwater or cause damage to or flooding of property. Drainage systems shall be designed and located to ensure slope stability.
[9] 
Any grading, excavating or other soil disturbance conducted on a steep slope shall not direct surface water runoff over the receding edge of the slope during construction.
E. 
EPOD(3) Woodlot Protection District.
(1) 
Purpose. The purpose of the Woodlot Protection District is to preserve and protect woodlots located along Irondequoit Bay in the Town of Webster by regulating or controlling development in those areas and by requiring review and permit approval prior to project commencement.

Areas that involve active orchards and single-family residential lots which are not in a Steep Slopes EPOD and which are not subject to further subdivision under the general zoning district provisions of the Town Code shall not be included in the Woodlot Protection District.
(3) 
Interpretation of district boundaries.
(a) 
The Commissioner of Public Works, subject to the provisions of this Code, shall be responsible for interpreting Environmental Protection Overlay District boundaries based on an interpretation of the Official Town of Webster EPOD Maps as well as the use of various criteria set forth in this section for determining such district boundaries.

The intent in creating this district is to encourage the location of smaller-scale business establishments in this district. Typical low-intensity commercial uses offer administrative and professional services, personal services and retail shopping, which have minimal detrimental impact on adjacent uses. Such uses are located primarily in single-purpose buildings or multi-use buildings of less than 5,000 square feet. These uses are also characterized by low vehicular traffic generation, limited nighttime operation and heavy pedestrian traffic. A limited range of low-intensity commercial uses are also appropriate for lots which cannot meet standards for conversion to commercial use in medium-intensity commercial areas. Such lots would be required to maximize compliance with landscaping, parking and setback requirements of this district and limit the scale of operation and the number of employees. The following shall apply in the LC-I District:
A. 
Permitted uses shall include and be illustrated as follows:
(1) 
Accountant office.

The intent in creating this district is to accommodate existing residential uses. Appropriate uses in this category include existing attached and detached single-family dwellings and multiple-family dwellings. New commercial development shall employ architectural styling and detail that is consistent with the residential nature of the surrounding area. New residential development with access from Ridge Road should be discouraged. However, conversion of existing residential structures to more intensive residential uses is appropriate for lots which do not meet standards for conversion to commercial use.

The intent in creating this district is to provide a choice of business locations for commercial uses furnishing a wide range of goods and services to individuals and other businesses. Such establishments should be scaled to meet town-wide needs. Such uses are located primarily in single-purpose buildings or small shopping plazas. Medium-intensity uses should be allowed only on parcels with adequate size to provide landscaped open space, parking and building setbacks. Conversion of residential buildings to medium-intensity commercial use should not be allowed on undersized lots. The Town intends to encourage owners of small parcels to work together to provide shared access and adequate parking and landscaping. If a landowner cannot combine parcels or work with adjacent property owners to provide landscaped open space and shared parking and access, such lots will be considered for a limited range of low-intensity commercial uses. The following shall apply in the MC District:
A. 
Permitted uses shall include and be illustrated as follows:
(1) 
All those permitted in LC-I Neighborhood Commercial and LC-II Low-Intensity Commercial.

A. 
Statement of purpose of district.
[Amended 7-18-2013 by L.L. No. 4-2013]
(1) 
The purpose of the PDD Progressive Development Overlay District is to provide a means of developing those areas within the Town zoned HC High-Intensity Commercial District, OP Core Area North - Office Park, and I-N Industrial District in an economical manner while encouraging utilization of innovative planning and design concepts. The PDD is intended to promote cooperative planning between the Town and property owners/developers. The PDD does not increase the density for the underlying zoning district but allows flexibility in the placement of buildings, parking facilities, etc., to preserve green space, open space and promote beneficial development by giving the Planning Board authority to approve site plans applying standards and guidelines not otherwise allowable in the zoning district in which the parcel or group of parcels is located.
(2) 
The PDD recognizes the need to modify dimensional standards within a parcel or group of parcels proposed for common, unified development such as setbacks, lot width, lot area and buffers in order to carry out the intent of the underlying zoning district, and further recognizes that such development may occur in phases over a number of years. Certain developments may require subdivision of parcels and separate ownership lots or tax account numbers within the overall development area to facilitate financing of development. The purpose of the PDD is to allow sufficient flexibility for such development without regard to underlying setback, lot width, lot area, and buffer requirements between separate parcels or ownership lots within the development area when the property is developed in accordance with a development plan reviewed by the Town Board.
(3) 
In addition, PDD recognizes the growing need for a variety of housing and levels of care specifically and exclusively for senior citizens. The intent and purpose is to encourage, where appropriate, senior housing within a PDD located in the HC District; to allow flexibility in the provision of senior housing with continuum levels of care specifically designed to satisfy senior citizen's economic, physical, psychological and social needs to the maximum extent practicable; to protect the character of the Town of Webster; to preserve open space, the property values of the community, and the health, safety and general welfare of the public by insuring that the location, nature, duration and intensity of said senior housing are as follows:
(a) 
Will not affect adversely the orderly pattern of development in the district;
(b) 
Will be in harmony with nearby uses;
(c)
