17.28.010 Purpose and intent.

Performance standards regulate the design and use of buildings or parcels of land, in order to minimize public hazards and to prevent the creation of nuisances and other conditions which are potentially harmful or detrimental to the users of the property or surrounding area. The purpose of the performance standards shall be to protect and improve the living and working environment, the appearance of the community, reduce or eliminate nuisance conditions, and to minimize the impacts of certain land uses on adjacent properties.

Performance standards shall apply to the use of land or buildings and to all new construction, renovation, and alteration of existing uses or structures in all zoning districts. No building or land shall be used or constructed if it creates a fire or explosion hazard; noise or vibrations; smoke, dust, odor, or other air pollution; electrical disturbance; glare; heat; or liquid or solid waste amount or degrees that adversely affect users of the property or surrounding areas.

In addition to the development standards contained in other sections of the zoning ordinance, the following performance standards shall be complied with. Whenever the performance and development standards are in conflict, the more stringent standards shall apply.

A.    Noise. Certain noise levels are detrimental to the health and safety of individuals. Excessive noise is considered a public nuisance and is discouraged by the city. In no case shall noise or sound emissions, for any use occurring on any property, exceed the equivalent sound pressure levels and decibels (the A-weighted scale) for any fifteen-minute period in any one-hour period as stipulated in the following:

Maximum 15-minute within any one-hour equivalent sound pressure levels (A-weighted - dBA)

2.    New Development. In the review of new land use and development proposals, the city shall require the following:

a.    A standard of forty-five dB for indoor noise in all new residential development including hotels and motels.

b.    The preparation (if necessary) of noise studies and noise attenuation features as a condition of approval for new projects.

c.    Post-construction testing for residential and office projects that are proposed in areas that have an existing Ldn of sixty-five dB.

B.    Light and Glare. To ensure that development within the community does not unnecessarily create light and glare nuisances, the following performance standards shall be observed:

1.    Shielding and Downlighting. Lighting used in the community must be shielded, boxed, or directed at a downward angle so as to minimize the generation of light and glare and to assure that there is no spill over of light and glare that will impact drivers or pedestrians on the public streets, on site activities, and adjoining or nearby properties. No activity shall be permitted which causes excessive light and glare to be transmitted or reflected to surrounding properties at a level resulting in detrimental impacts to the community.

2.    Candle Power. The candle power of all lights shall be the minimum needed to accomplish the purpose of the light.

3.    Flashing Lights. Light sources shall generally not be permitted in landscaped, buffer, or setback areas except for those illuminating pedestrian walkways. Lighting used to illuminate parking areas of commercial uses shall be designed, located, and installed to be shielded and downlit and to reflect away from any nearby residential or open space zoning districts. Lighting for advertising signs shall not create glare or light which extends to surrounding properties.

C.    Radioactivity or Electrical Disturbances. No activities shall be permitted which emit dangerous radioactivity at any point nor shall electrical disturbances which adversely affect the operation of any equipment, other than that of the creator of such disturbances, be allowed.

D.    Odors, Smoke, Fumes, Dust, Particulate Matter. No emission shall be permitted at any point which would violate the current regulation for such emission as established by the Lake County Air Quality Management District. No emission of odorous gases or other odorous matter shall be permitted in such quantities as to be readily detectable when diluted in the ratio of one volume of odorous air to four volumes of clean air at the lot line. Any process which may involve the creation or emission of any odors shall be provided with a secondary safeguard system so that control will be maintained if the primary safeguard system should fail.

During grading, earthwork, and/or building construction activities, adequate dust suppression methods shall be utilized. Such methods include frequent watering and the use of dust palliatives. All soil materials that are being transported on or off the project site shall be covered, and all materials deposited within a public right-of-way shall be removed immediately.

E.    Liquid or Solid Waste. No discharge shall be permitted at any point into any public sewer, private sewage system, stream, or into the ground, except in accord with standards approved by the state and county departments of health and local ordinances, of any materials of such nature or temperature as can contaminate any water supply, interfere with bacterial processes in sewage treatment, or otherwise cause the emission of dangerous or offensive elements. There shall be no accumulation outdoors of solid wastes unless stored in closed containers. Commercial-type dumpsters shall not be used for typical trash storage activities in single-family residential areas.

F.    Fire and Explosion Hazards. All activities involving, and all storage of, flammable and/or explosive materials shall be provided with adequate safety devices against the hazard of fire and/or explosion and adequate fire fighting and fire suppression equipment and devices standard in the industry as required by the Uniform Fire Code.

G.    Heat. For the purpose of this title "heat" is defined as thermal energy of a radioactive, conductive, or convective nature. Heat emitted at any or all points shall not at any time cause a temperature increase on any adjacent property in excess of ten degrees Fahrenheit, whether such change be in the air or on the ground, in a natural stream or lake, or in any structure on such adjacent property.

H.    Public Utility Facilities. Public utility distribution and transportation lines, towers and poles, and underground facilities for the distribution of gas, water, communication, and electrical facilities shall be allowed in all zoning districts except for the CBD district.

Such approval shall be made prior to the acquisition of necessary right-of-way or easements.

I.    Undergrounding of Utilities. All electric and communication facilities that are intended to serve new buildings or structures constructed in all zoning districts shall be placed underground on the premises to be served except for appurtenant facilities such as surface mounted transformers, pedestal mounted terminal boxes, meter cabinets, and concealed ducts. New or relocated off-site utilities serving new development areas such as shopping centers, subdivisions, industrial parks, multifamily residences, or similar projects shall be installed underground. Undergrounding of utilities may be waived by staff or the planning commission when there is a finding made that there are unique or unusual circumstances existing which preclude the underground installation.

J.    Location Restrictions for RVs, Campers, and Trailers. Recreational vehicles, campers, or trailers shall only be used for human habitation or occupied for living or sleeping quarters when installed in an approved development. Recreational vehicles, campers, and trailers may be occupied on individual residential lots within the city on a temporary basis by visiting friends, relatives, or in similar situations for not more than thirty days in a calendar year.

K.    Fire Protection Fee-Building Height. Buildings in any district shall not be more than forty feet in height unless a use permit is secured.
