11-4-102 Purpose of Zoning Districts.

In addition to the more general purposes of this Title identified in Section 11-1-102, the various zoning districts each serve a more specific individual purpose, as described below. All of the districts combined provide for a broad range of uses that are essential to the creation of a safe, healthy, diverse and economically viable Springville City.

(1)    The Agricultural Zoning Districts are intended to preserve the City’s agricultural land uses until urban uses become desirable and feasible, based on the availability of urban services in the area.

(a)    The A-1 Zoning District is intended to allow for the continued agricultural uses in those areas of the City which have been historically used for the growing of crops and the raising of livestock.

(b)    The A-S Zoning District is intended to allow for the continued agricultural uses, along with specialty agricultural uses, in those areas of the City which have been historically used for the growing of crops and the raising of livestock.

(2)    The Residential Zoning Districts (R) are intended to provide a range of densities which will reflect the diverse needs and desires of people for housing in Springville City. These areas are to include attractive landscaped yards. All of these zones include front and rear yard setbacks to provide space for landscaping, parking and accessory uses. These districts also allow for other compatible uses that may complement the primarily residential functions of the districts, under certain conditions. Basic urban services and utilities should be available in all of these zones. These zones are intended to accommodate both pedestrian and vehicular traffic and function as neighborhoods for people residing in these zones.

(a)    The R1-15 zoning district is intended to provide areas for very low density, suburban-type uses. Street access in this zone should primarily be off of local and residential collector streets. This zone will allow farm animals as an accessory use, provided adequate lot area exists.

(b)    The R1-10 and R1-8 zoning districts are intended to provide areas for single family detached dwellings at a low density and are generally suburban in nature. Street access in this zone should primarily be from local and residential collector streets.

(c)    The R1-5 zoning district is intended to provide an area for single family residences in detached, and in limited circumstances, attached dwellings in a medium low density. The zone is specifically designed to meet the unique nature of the Historic City Center area which historically included deep lots with limited frontage, located on a traditional grid street pattern and is generally urban in nature.

(d)    The R2 zoning district is intended to provide for single family and two family residences in attached and detached dwellings at a medium low density and is generally urban in nature. Street access for residents in this zone should primarily be from local and residential collector streets.

(e)    The RMHP zoning district is intended to provide areas for mobile home parks and subdivisions, which are limited in use to manufactured housing and related uses of an office and a community/recreation center. Because of the required size of these developments, area zoned for this use should have immediate access to a collector or arterial street.

(f)    The RMF zoning districts are intended to provide areas for multiple-family attached dwellings at medium (RMF-1) to medium high (RMF-2) densities. These zones should include a variety of residential flats and multi-level rowhouses with parking generally located behind or on the side of the buildings. Single and two family residences are also allowed in these zones. Primary access to the units should face the street and vehicular access should generally be from collector and local streets. Uses in the RMF zones are urban in nature, due to their densities. This zone should typically abut an arterial or collector street or abut higher intensity uses and serve as a transition zone to lower density residential zones.

(3)    Professional Office and Business Park Zoning Districts are intended to provide space for a wide range of offices and institutions that meet needs of the community by providing places for professional services and employment opportunities. Primary frontage and access should be located on arterial or collector streets in these zoning districts.

(a)    The PO zoning district is intended to provide space for personal and professional offices and institutions that meet the need generated by the community to utilize their services. The intensity of use, in terms of hours of operation and number of customers should generally be less than commercial types of uses and these uses should generally be located along the edges of neighborhoods on collector and arterial streets.

(b)    The BP zoning district is intended to be an attractive campus environment for offices, research facilities an environmentally-appropriate assembly uses, as well as appropriate amenities supporting employee activity. Uses receiving site plan approval for this zone should be compatible with surrounding uses, which should be accomplished through attractive architectural design, pedestrian trails and substantial, attractive landscaping.

(4)    The Center Zoning Districts are intended to provide locations for pedestrian-oriented, vertical mixed-use development throughout the City.

(a)    The VC zoning district is intended to provide opportunities for mixed-use development throughout the City. These districts would include areas of between 15 to 40 acres and will require a master-plan concept to be presented to ensure the development meets the intent of the zone. The intended user radius is from one to one and one-half mile. These centers are ideally located at intersections of arterial or major collector streets. Development in this area includes buildings of up to three stories in height that line the street right-of-way. Multi-family dwellings included in this area may include minimal setbacks. On-site parking is primarily located to the rear of buildings in the center of the block. Landscaping requirements vary, depending on the type of use. It is included for screening parking areas, where visible from the street, and to provide a buffer adjacent less intense uses.

(b)    The TC zoning district is intended to help protect and enhance the historic center of Springville City, generally located between Center Street and 400 South and extending to the east and west for approximately one block. Development in this area includes buildings of up to three stories in height that line the street right-of-way. Parking is provided in the right-of-way and behind the buildings. Landscaping requirements vary, depending on the type of use. It is included for screening parking areas, where visible from the street, and to provide a buffer adjacent less intense uses.

(5)    The Commercial Zoning Districts are intended to provide opportunities for commercial uses based on considerations such as: intensity of use; types of goods and services; and market area. These uses should generally abut on an arterial or major collector street, and in some districts, frontage roads.

(a)    The NC zoning district is intended to provide commercial goods and services to an area of limited size for basic trade and personal services that occur on a daily or frequent basis. The major market area is generally limited to an area of approximately one to one and one-half miles in radius.

(b)    The CC zoning district is intended to provide a range of commercial goods and services greater than those found in the NC zone but on a more limited basis and intensity that those found in the regional and highway commercial districts. The basic market for this district is vehicle-oriented and the primary market area is Springville City. This type of district should be located on an arterial street, at or near a major intersection. Parking is to be provided on-site. Landscaping is included in all areas not required for building(s), storage, parking and traffic circulation, with parking and storage areas being screened and an appropriate landscaped buffer and fencing adjacent less intense uses.

(c)    The RC zoning district is intended to provide an area in which a full range of commercial and service uses may locate in a limited area. The limited area of this district functions to heighten the intensity of uses, concentrate activities and make it a major commercial destination. These districts should abut arterial streets and be located near free way access, as well as mass transit lines. Parking is to be provided on the site. Landscaping is required in all areas not necessary for building(s), storage, parking and traffic circulation, with parking and storage areas being screened and an appropriate landscaped buffer and fencing adjacent less intense uses.

(d)    The HC zoning district is intended to provide an area abutting major arterial streets or interstate frontage roads for a full range of commercial and professional uses; however, the primary focus should be on uses which require large retail display or merchandise storage area and serve a regional market. Parking is to be provided on the site. Landscaping is required in all areas not necessary for building(s), storage, parking and traffic circulation, with parking and storage areas being screened and an appropriate landscaped buffer and fencing adjacent less intense uses.

(6)    The Industrial Manufacturing Zoning Districts are intended to provide locations for industrial and manufacturing uses in areas where they will have the necessary services and facilities and be located in such a manner as to minimize obtrusions of adjoining uses and districts. These districts should be located near rail lines and have direct access to Interstate Highway interchanges for ease of transportation of goods. In order to minimize conflict with incompatible uses, most non-industrial uses are not allowed in the Industrial Manufacturing zones, excepting those catering primarily to the needs of employees working in the area.

(a)    The LIM zoning district is intended to provide locations for manufacturing and industrial development of less intensive uses. The largest portion of these types of uses shall be contained inside of structures. These districts should be located near major arterial streets and be located so as to provide easy access to the Interstate Highway system. Because of the highly visible location of these uses, special attention shall be paid to visual aesthetics.

(b)    The HIM zoning district is intended to provide locations for heavy industrial and manufacturing development. These uses may or may not be located immediately adjacent major streets, so long as easy access to the Interstate Highway system is provided through areas of similar land uses. Proximity to rail lines may be a determinant in locating these zoning districts.

(Ord. No. 20-05, 10/04/2005; Ord. No. 06-2015 § 2, 03/17/2015; Ord. No. 24-2019 § 2, 11/19/2019)

11-4-408 Multi-Family Residential Design Standards (Non-Overlay Zone Projects Only).

(1)    Dwelling – Multiple-family in the RMF-1 and RMF-2 zones, except those in an overlay zone, shall comply with the following standards:

(a)    Facade Variation – For new development, no two (2) multi-family buildings may possess the same street-facing elevation on a block face. No two (2) facades may be the same as an adjacent or opposite building facade. This standard is met when the street-facing elevations differ from another front facade by at least four (4) of the following criteria, and shall not eliminate any other requirements of the code or this Chapter:

(i)    Articulation;

(ii)    Differing mix of building materials;

(iii)    Variation in roof elevation;

(iv)    Entry/porch (variation in placement and configuration of porches, stoops, covering);

(v)    Fenestration (variation in the arrangement and detailing of windows and other openings);

(vi)    Architectural style (variation in style; e.g., craftsman, prairie, four square, colonial, Tudor, ranch, etc.);

(vii)    Variation of building height and stories; or

(viii)    Color variation.

(b)    Articulation.

(i)    In multi-family buildings individual units shall be emphasized using a variety of techniques that include plane changes, bays, variation in entrances, balconies, dormers, colors, columns, or other details defining the individual unit.

(ii)    All building elevations must be articulated along the vertical face for a minimum depth of one foot (1'), for a length of at least six feet (6'), for every dwelling unit or every thirty feet (30') of horizontal wall plane, whichever is less. This may be accomplished through the use of recesses or extensions of floor area, decks, patios, or entrances.

(iii)    In addition to the standard in subsection (1)(b)(ii) of this section, the vertical mass of buildings shall be broken up through the use of architectural features such as horizontal cornices, pediments, belt-courses, canopies (e.g., covered porches) and/or “bellybands” at least twelve inches (12") in height across the length of the elevation.

(iv)    Roofs must provide offsets or breaks proportionate to the roof form. Dormers, porch canopies, and other secondary roof forms are examples of acceptable breaks in roof line on sloped roofs. Where flat roofs are allowed, stepped parapets or cornices proportionate to the building elevation are required.

(v)    Building shall include breaks in the roof line for buildings with pitched roofs (changes in elevation and orientation of roof line, or use of projections such as gables and dormers, that demonstrate variation over at least twenty percent (20%) of all front or street-facing elevations).

(c)    Building Materials – At least fifty percent (50%) of the net facade areas of each elevation shall be in brick, stone or cultured stone with the remainder in stucco, wood or fiber cement siding. Other materials may be used as accent materials, but shall not consist of greater than five percent (5%) of any facade elevation. Brickwork must include one (1) element of coursing different from the major coursing on the building (i.e., the stretcher bond is the most typically used and a soldier, dogtooth or other coursing should be included as part of the overall brick application).

(d)    General Standards.

(i)    Window and door openings shall make up twenty percent (20%) of any front facade facing the street;

(ii)    Windows shall not be flush with exterior walls. All windows shall be recessed or treated with a trim. Such treatments shall be applied on all window edges and sides;

(iii)    At least fifty percent (50%) of the block length shall have building facades within thirty feet (30') of the front property line;

(iv)    The use of materials shall be consistent as to percentage or application of each facade on all sides of the building. This requirement shall not apply to materials used as accent materials not consisting of greater than five percent (5%);

(v)    The minimum parking requirement for multiple-family residential uses in the RMF-1 and RMF-2 zones shall be in accordance with the provisions of Section 11-6-113.

(e)    Required Improvements – Road improvements, including curb, gutter and sidewalk, as well as parkstrips with required street trees are elements essential to the efficient transport of storm and surface water, the creation of a complete system of safe walkways for pedestrians and the creation of a streetscape that beautifies neighborhoods. New multi-family developments, or existing multi-family developments which expand or alter their site plan, shall be required to install the following improvements in accordance with applicable City codes:

(i)    New multi-family developments, or existing multi-family developments which expand or alter their site plan, shall install street improvements such as curb, gutter, sidewalk and parkstrip, and drive approaches in accordance with the Springville Standard Specifications and Drawings.

(ii)    New multi-family developments, or existing multi-family developments which expand or alter their site plan, shall install and landscape parkstrips, including street trees (or may pay to have the City install street trees) in accordance with the requirements of Title 4, Public Property and Utilities, Chapter 11, Street Trees and Tree Planting.
