17.74.020 General restrictions.

A.    Written Determination. When reviewing and approving or advising on requests for development approvals, the plan commission shall make written determinations that the proposed development is consistent with the land use intent identified for District J in the Calhoun Road South Neighborhood Plan, incorporated herein by reference. Approvals by either the plan commission and/or common council shall also seek to achieve a balance between the timing of new development and the timing of redevelopment within the planning district.

B.    Placement, Density, and Design. The provisions identified for District J in the Calhoun Road South Neighborhood Plan shall be incorporated herein by reference and shall serve as guidelines for the placement, density and design of new development within this district. Generally, these call for added density through infill mixed-use development with horizontal mixing and vertical layering of residential, office and ground level retail uses. The development pattern is intended to indirectly connect the shopping mall property (Brookfield Square) with the office uses along Executive Drive to the west through coordinated site planning, sidewalks or other pedestrian connections, connecting parking structures and other design features that create a multi-use environment.

C.    Intent. The intent of the district is also for identified uses to be located in close proximity to each other, including mixing uses in individual buildings. (Ord. 1824 § 1 (part), 2001)

17.74.030 Layout and dimensional standards.

A.    Floor Area Ratio. Floor area ratio (FAR) maximums for individual properties are set at 0.3. FAR increases above 0.3 must be approved by the plan commission as a condition of zoning approval of plan and method of operation. The plan commission will make a written determination that the increase in FAR achieves the intent and provisions of this district and the Calhoun Road South Neighborhood Plan.

B.    Height Regulations. Height regulations: Seventy (70) feet maximum, except within two hundred seventy five (275) feet of the west right-of-way line of Dechant Road, where forty (40) feet is the maximum.

C.    Dimensional Standards. Setback, offset and related dimensional standards shall be determined by the approval of a specific plan for a planned development district (PDD) or the application of the modified suburban overlay (MSO) district development patterns, as determined by the plan commission.
