17.100.010 What this chapter does.

This chapter identifies the application requirements and approval process for site plans. [Ord. O-16-2010 § 3 (Exh. B); Ord. O-18-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.1); Ord. O-11-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.1); Ord. O-23-2005 § 3 (Exh. 1(1) § 20.1)].

17.100.020 Purpose.

The site plan procedure establishes a process to evaluate proposed projects, ensuring that development will occur in a safe, functional manner and will not create nuisances for adjacent landowners. [Ord. O-16-2010 § 3 (Exh. B); Ord. O-18-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.2); Ord. O-11-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.2); Ord. O-23-2005 § 3 (Exh. 1(1) § 20.2)].

17.100.030 Site plan approval required.

Site plan approval shall be required for all developments which contain an industrial, commercial, institutional, or multifamily dwelling, or for other uses for which a site plan is required elsewhere in this title. [Ord. O-16-2010 § 3 (Exh. B); Ord. O-18-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.3); Ord. O-11-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.3); Ord. O-23-2005 § 3 (Exh. 1(1) § 20.3)].

17.100.040 Master site plans.

When development proposals are larger than five acres in size, proposed to be developed in phases or sold in separate parcels, a master site plan approval by the city council is required prior to approving the individual sites within the project. The master site plan application shall address the following issues for the entire site: land use, open space and landscaped areas, architectural guidelines, buildable square footage, parking requirements, access and circulation, phasing and timing of improvements, project monument sign locations, storm drainage and all preliminary calculations for infrastructure improvements and traffic impact mitigation related to a traffic impact study, if required. The proposal and accompanying documents shall be reviewed using the same procedure as any site plan application.

A. Waiving Previously Reviewed Materials. All new construction in master site plans shall be required to go through a separate site plan review. To the extent that site plan requirements such as storm drainage, traffic circulation, parking, lighting, or other provisions have been met through the master site plan process, such information may not be required.

B. Planning Commission Final Approval of Phases. The city council may elect to delegate to the planning commission the final approval responsibilities for each site plan phase. This shall be stated in the development agreement for the master site plan. However, if one or more of the following conditions exists, final site plan approval must be obtained from the city council, upon recommendation from the planning commission:

1. The site plan deviates from the approved master site plan.

2. Previous phases have created unforeseen impacts requiring the reevaluation of site standards for subsequent phases with respect to such impacts.

C. Industrial Master Site Plans – Special Conditions. The planning director may waive certain requirements of the master site plan that may not be necessary for an industrial proposal larger than five acres in size. The following requirements cannot be waived: land use, open space and landscaped areas, architectural guidelines, access and circulation requirements, and traffic impact study, if required.

D. Master Site Plans Serving as Preliminary Plat. The preliminary plat process described in Chapter 16.20 EMMC may not be required if a master site plan, while going through the initial approval process, complies with the following criteria:

1. A preliminary arrangement of larger blocks of land – later to be subdivided during the final plat process – is included.

2. All required utilities, storm drainage, landscaping, access and circulation requirements, and other aspects of the eventually built-out project are addressed sufficiently with the master site plan.

3. The city is not responsible if, over time, the project is unable to service a possible user due to undersized utilities, roadways, or other infrastructure. If upgrades to such facilities are necessary, they will be borne solely by the applicant. [Ord. O-13-2016 § 2 (Exh. A); Ord. O-16-2010 § 3 (Exh. B); Ord. O-18-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.4); Ord. O-11-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.4); Ord. O-23-2005 § 3 (Exh. 1(1) § 20.4)].

17.100.050 Site plan development standards.

The following are standards required for all site plans in any zoning district:

A. Use of Property. The entire parcel area shall be built upon, landscaped or paved in accordance with the zoning district’s open space requirements and other generally applicable development standards.

B. Screening Requirements. Any commercial lot which abuts a residential or agricultural use shall be effectively screened by a combination of a wall, fencing, and landscaping of acceptable design. Required walls or fences shall not be less than six feet in height, unless a wall or fence of a different height is approved by the city council. Such wall, fence and landscaping shall be maintained in good condition with no advertising thereon. All developments shall have the minimum number of trees as required by Chapter 17.60 EMMC, Landscaping, Buffering, Fencing and Transitioning, to provide for shade and visual relief.

C. Access Requirements.

1. Access Onto a Public Street. Access onto public rights-of-way shall not be closer than 100 feet from a public right-of-way intersection or another driveway intersection on the same side of the street. This shall be measured from the curbline of the driveway at the point of intersection with the public right-of-way to the nearest point of the public right-of-way. In the instance of driveway to driveway separation, the measurement shall be from closest curbline to closest curbline at the point of intersection with the public right-of-way. When a parcel has less than 200 feet of frontage on a public right-of-way, then all necessary efforts shall be made to work collaboratively with adjacent property owners to share a common ingress and egress straddling the common property line.

2. Access Dimensions. For each commercial lot, access shall be provided and shall meet the following requirements: each roadway shall not be more than 40 feet in width, measured at right angles to the centerline of the driveway except as increased by permissible curb return radii. The entire flare of any return radii shall fall within the right-of-way.

3. Interconnection. All parking and other vehicular use areas shall be interconnected with adjacent properties in order to allow maximum off-street vehicular circulation.

4. Acceleration and Deceleration Lanes. Acceleration and deceleration lanes shall be required on arterials and collectors when deemed necessary by the city engineer.

D. Off-Street Truck Loading Space. Every building or structure built, remodeled or occupied after the effective date of the ordinance codified in this chapter for manufacturing, commercial trade, or other uses similarly involving the receipt or distribution by vehicles or materials or merchandise shall have provided and maintained on the building’s lot adequate space for standing, loading, and unloading of the vehicles in order to avoid undue interference with public use of streets or alleys.

E. Utilities. All utility lines shall be underground in designated easements. No pipe, conduit, cable, line for water, gas, sewage, drainage, steam, electrical or any other energy or service shall be installed or maintained upon any lot (outside of any building) above the surface of the ground except for hoses, movable pipes used for irrigation or other purpose during construction. Transformers shall be grouped with other utility meters where possible and screened with vegetation or other appropriate method. Each contractor and owner/developer shall be responsible to know the whereabouts of all underground utilities. Protection of such utilities shall also be the responsibility of the developer.

F. Grading and Drainage. Drainage from any lot must follow current city requirements for on-site retention and a maximum allowable discharge at the calculated historical rate for the site. Drainage shall not be allowed to flow upon adjoining lots unless the owner of the lot upon which the water flows has granted an easement for such purpose. The planning commission must approve a site plan with grading, drainage, and clearing plans before any such activities may begin. Lot grading shall be kept to a minimum. Where possible, roads and development shall be designed for preservation of a natural grade.

G. Dedication of Water Shares. The applicant shall comply with Chapter 13.25 EMMC and shall dedicate to the city the amount of water rights specified in that chapter or purchase sufficient water from the city prior to the issuance of any building permit.

H. Protection of Steep Slopes and Natural Drainages. Steep slopes and natural drainages shall be protected from development and erosion. It is encouraged that they be incorporated into the design of development. Development or construction near these features shall comply with Chapter 15.80 EMMC, Hillside Site Development. No building lot may have an average slope that exceeds 25 percent. [Ord. O-19-2023 § 2 (Exh. A); Ord. O-09-2017 § 2 (Exh. A); Ord. O-13-2016 § 2 (Exh. A); Ord. O-16-2010 § 3 (Exh. B); Ord.

The city council may also defer action if an applicant fails to appear at the meeting or if the city council requests additional information. The city council may also remand any application, or portion thereof, to the planning commission for further study and recommendation. Upon the granting or denying of a site plan application, the city shall prepare and mail or deliver to the applicant a written statement of the decision and, in the case of a denial, the reasons therefor. [Ord. O-16-2010 § 3 (Exh. B); Ord. O-18-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.8); Ord. O-11-2008 § 2 (Exh. A § 20.7); Ord. O-23-2005 § 3 (Exh. 1(1) § 20.8)].

17.100.090 Expirations and extensions of approvals.

Master site plan approvals shall expire two years from the date of city council approval if a site plan application has not been approved by the city council; site plan approvals shall expire one year from the date of city council approval if a building permit has not been obtained for the project.

A. Extensions of Time. An extension of time may be requested by an applicant with the following requirements:

1. A written, signed request for an extension of time shall be received by the planning director prior to the expiration date of the project.

2. The request for an extension of time shall specify any progress made on the project’s conditions of approval, and the reasons for the extension request, along with supporting documentation.

B. Criteria for Approving Extensions of Time. It is the responsibility of the applicant to request an extension of time prior to a project’s expiration. The city is not responsible to remind applicants of expiration dates. The planning director shall approve or deny a request for an extension of time within a reasonable period of time after receiving the request. The planning director may grant up to a single one-year extension of time to any project that meets one of the following criteria:

1. The applicant must have shown a good faith effort to initiate the project by systematically completing predevelopment conditions.

2. The applicant’s initiation of development activities is based on an action by the city or other public agency which has not taken place or was delayed, resulting in a time delay beyond the permit holder’s control.

C. Appeals. An applicant may appeal the planning director’s decision to the planning commission within 15 days of the date of the decision. The applicant may then appeal a decision of the planning commission to the city council within 15 days of the planning commission’s decision. In no case shall the planning commission or city council approve more than a single one-year extension of time.

D. Resubmitting an Expired Project. A project that has expired may be resubmitted within two years of the expiration date for a fee to cover time and materials, not to exceed 50 percent of the original fee, if the project is substantially similar to the expired plan. The resubmitted project must be in compliance with the current development code at the time of resubmittal. [Ord. O-16-2010 § 3 (Exh. B)].

17.100.100 Issuance of building permit.

Any building permit issued shall expressly require that development be undertaken and completed in conformity with the provisions of the approved site plan.

A. Application Compliance. A building permit shall not be issued for any building or structure, external alterations thereto, or any sign or advertising structures until the provisions of this chapter have been met.

B. Bonds. In order to assure that the development will be constructed to completion in an acceptable manner, the applicant (owner) shall enter into an agreement and provide a bond similar to the requirements applicable to subdivisions. The agreement and bond shall assure timely construction and installation of all required public improvements, including, but not limited to, landscaping, flood control facilities, parking, street improvements and other improvements required for site plan approval.
