17.98.010 Statement of purpose.

The purpose of the modified suburban overlay district is to supersede certain provisions of base zoning in certain areas when other available zoning tools or other techniques cannot achieve desired results with standards to protect unique development, building or land use patterns in residential, commercial or mixed-use areas when such patterns are not adequately addressed by applicable zoning regulations; promote reinvestment and redevelopment in residential, commercial, or mixed-use areas where change is desired and when existing zoning regulations hinder achievement of the desired change; or help implement neighborhood plans or planning studies. (Ord. 2577-19 § 1, 2019; Ord. 1692 § 1 (part), 1999)

17.98.020 Overlay district in relation to other zoning.

Each modified suburban overlay district may be used to relax or eliminate requirements of the base zoning districts or to impose additional requirements than those stated in the base zoning district. Where conflict occurs among two or more overlay districts applicable to the same property, the most restrictive of the conflicting provisions prevails. (Ord. 2577-19 § 2, 2019; Ord. 1740 § 1 (part), 2000: Ord. 1692 § 1 (part), 1999)

17.98.030 Overlay district requirements.

Whenever this overlay district is applied to a particular geographic area, the common council will adopt a map or map series showing the geographic extent of the overlay district, the zoning issue area, planning unit, and any parcel(s) within each overlay zoning district. The associated map is considered a supplement document adopted and incorporated herein by reference. The common council will also set forth the permitted uses, if different than the base zoning, and particular standards for each overlay district; the standards may include, but are not limited to, the size, scale, and height of buildings, hours of operation, traffic control, noise control, lighting, odor control, impervious surface coverage, and landscaping.

A.    Development Patterns. New development and redevelopment of properties designated as having a development pattern of new suburban (NS), cluster suburban (CS), combination (CS/NS), residential cluster (RC), context suburban (CTS), or traditional neighborhood development (TND) will be required to achieve the following design characteristics, summarized here and described more specifically for each geographical area.

1. Cluster Suburban. A development pattern where buildings are positioned and clustered on a site in a manner that creates a well-defined pedestrian environment between building entrances. Minimal parking is located in the area between the building cluster and the street (a maximum of a double-row of parking). Cluster suburban acknowledges that most people will drive in their autos to destinations, but will seek to walk between buildings in the cluster area. The development style minimizes the auto-oriented environment along the street and configures buildings to encourage pedestrian usage. The street-side and pedestrian-side building facades convey human scale through fenestration, articulation, detailing or landscape plantings.

2. New Suburban. A development pattern where buildings are oriented toward the street with at least one major pedestrian entrance connected to the street/pedestrian way. No parking is located in the area between the building and the street. A well-defined pedestrian environment is developed between the edge of the street and the street-side facade of the building. While most people will drive their autos to destinations in a new suburban development, greater opportunities for pedestrian access to sites will be created. The street-side building facade conveys human scale through fenestration, articulation, detailing or landscape plantings.

3. Residential Cluster. A residential development pattern characterized by a unified site design for a number of housing units, clustering buildings and providing common open space, potential density increases, and a mix of building types. It permits the planning of a project and the calculation of densities over the entire development, rather than on an individual lot-by-lot basis. Where sites with this development pattern are adjacent to sites planned for a new suburban or cluster suburban development pattern, street yard building setbacks shall approximate those called for in those development pattern standards.

4. Context Suburban (CTS). A development pattern in which development or redevelopment on a parcel that is within a neighborhood context of relatively newer or historic buildings may develop consistent with the building layout and parking layout of the neighborhood context.

5. Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND). A development pattern consisting of a compact, mixed-use neighborhood where residential, commercial and civic buildings are in close proximity to each other, as defined in Section 66.1027(1)(c), Wisconsin Statutes. This development pattern is created by title only to indicate intent of the city to conform with the requirements of the state law. The development pattern may be able to be achieved under one or more of the other development patterns defined in this section or additional development pattern provisions may be incorporated by later amendments, consulting with a document identified as “Model Ordinance for Traditional Neighborhood Development,” dated December, 2000, published by the University of Wisconsin – Extension pursuant to Section 66.1027(2), Wisconsin Statutes, as a nonexclusive and nonbinding guide to the form of development.

6. Combined Development Patterns. Where properties are designated in the matrix found in the following Section 17.98.040 as having a combination of development patterns, the plan commission will allow a combination of patterns within a single site or within a planning unit as defined herein.

7. Standards for the Removal of a Development Pattern Designation. The plan commission may, after finding that a development pattern designated in a matrix for the nonresidential use of a specific property does not serve in the best interests of the community due to the proximity of the residential properties and the existence of certain conditions including, but not limited to, topography, lot size, lot depth, or the impact of a permitted intensive use on adjacent residential properties, recommend that the common council remove the development pattern designation through an amendment to the matrix and removal or amendment of the associated map as needed.

B. Dimensional Standards.

1. As necessary, the development pattern designations will require site plans with dimensional characteristics different than those required by the underlying base zoning. The application of this overlay district constitutes authorization to the plan commission to modify dimensional requirements of underlying base zoning to achieve the purposes and the intent of the development patterns.

The following set of illustrations shows how such modifications may be made to achieve certain standards of the development patterns:

a. Building Setbacks from Streets for “New Suburban” Development. Twenty-five (25) foot1 minimum to seventy (70) foot maximum setback along a street for “new suburban” frontage where a single building is located on an individual lot. Where building clusters are developed on larger lots, the minimum and maximum building setbacks apply only to the building adjacent to street, but the number of buildings set back more than the minimum twenty-five (25) feet or a setback close to twenty-five (25) feet will be minimized.

b.    Building Setbacks from Streets for “Cluster Suburban” Development. Twenty-five (25) foot minimum and seventy (70) foot maximum setback if no parking is located in the space between the building and the street. Seventy-five (75) foot minimum (single loading parking) and a one hundred twenty-five (125) foot maximum (double loaded parking) setback when parking is located in such space. Where building clusters are developed on larger lots, the minimum and maximum building setbacks apply only to the buildings adjacent to street, but the number of buildings set back more than the minimum of seventy-five (75) feet or a setback close to seventy-five (75) feet will be minimized.

c.    Parking Offset. A minimum of twenty-five (25) feet shall be maintained from back of curb (parking lot) to rear and/or side lot line when commercial use adjoins any residential district, except for intensive uses as regulated elsewhere in this code where greater separations are required. This space shall be developed as a landscaped feature. Minimum height of the landscape buffer shall be three feet. Design specifications are found within the Site Development Standards for Nonresidential Uses.

d.    Landscape Design. Allow parking lot “planting islands” to be consolidated (normally one planting island per twenty (20) parking spaces is required) to create larger landscaped areas within parking lots. Minimum dimensions for the consolidated planting islands shall be twelve (12) feet wide from back of curb to back of curb. Islands shall be a minimum of one hundred twenty (120) feet long to achieve maximum visual effect and plant massing.

2.    The dimensional standards in areas designated as Context Suburban (CTS) Development Pattern may be established by the city to establish reasonable consistency with the siting and other dimensional characteristics of relatively newer or other buildings in the contextual vicinity. The diagram below shows one illustration.

3.    The matrix will also show dimensional standards that are not related to Development Patterns.

4.    Transfer of Development Rights. If listed within the matrix for the district, the available floor area or lot coverage assigned under the base zoning of a zoning issue area (“sending site”) can be transferred to another zoning issue area (“receiving site”) located within the planning unit or adjacent planning unit provided there is a corresponding reduction in available floor area and lot coverage on the sending site. In addition, a reduction in landscape surface ratio can be established on the receiving site provided there is a corresponding increase in landscape surface ratio on the sending site.

C.    Uses Allowed or Disallowed.

1.    Where indicated in the matrix, the overlay district allows specified uses in addition to those allowed in the underlying base zoning throughout the overlay district.

2.    Where specified in the matrix, the overlay district disallows uses that otherwise would be allowable by the underlying base zoning throughout the overlay district.

3.    The allowance of a use by the base zoning or the use provisions of the overlay district does not exempt new development or redevelopment of a particular use from complying with the other requirements of the overlay district, such as those dealing with site development standards, intensive use, or conditional use requirements.

D.    Planning Units and Nodes. Within the Section 17.98.040 matrix, planning units are depicted on the map series associated with the applicable MSO district. Such planning units may contain a node identified in the city comprehensive plan.

E.    Special Characteristics. This portion of the matrix defines other standards for the associated MSO district.

F.    Additional Standards. In addition to any standards set forth in this chapter, all nonresidential site plans shall comply with the most recent edition of the Site Development Standards for Nonresidential Uses. If a conflict occurs between the language of the Site Development Standards for Nonresidential Uses and this chapter, the language of this chapter shall control. (Ord. 2577-19 § 3, 2019; Ord. 2450-16 § 1, 2016; Ord. 1965-04 §§ 1, 2, 2004; Ord. 1872 § 1, 2002; Ord. 1820 § 1, 2001; Ord. 1745 § 1 (part), 2000; Ord. 1744 § 1 (part), 2000; Ord. 1740 § 1 (part), 2000; Ord. 1692 § 1 (part), 1999)
