Sec. 80-280. Final plans and failure to commence construction after approval of

(a) Final plans

 

(1) Prior to the issuance of a building permit for all or any part of a planned district, there shall be submitted a final plan for review and approval by the City Plan Commission. This final plan shall be the basis for the issuance of any building permit.

 

(2) Every final plan shall provide all the information required of a development plan and shall further include grading, landscaping, lighting and signage plans.

 

(3) The City Plan Commission shall review the final plan and determine if the final plan is in substantial compliance with the development plan, allowing for slight differences in setbacks, yard and parking requirements and ratio of building coverage to land area where conditions justify such changes.

 

(4) If the City Plan Commission determines that the final plan is in substantial compliance with the development plan, the City Plan Commission shall approve the final plan and so advise the Director of Codes Administration.

 

(5) If the City Plan Commission determines that the final plan is not in substantial compliance with the development plan, the applicant may elect to:

 

a. File an amendment to the development plan; or

 

b. Appeal the decision of the City Plan Commission to the Director of Codes Administration.

 

(b) Failure to commence construction after approval of planned district.

 

(1) If construction has not commenced within three years after the date of city council approval of the planned district, or if construction of subsequent phases has not commenced within the proposed schedule for construction, the director of city development shall review the development plan or any phase thereof to determine whether the development plan or any phase thereof should be voided or remain in effect.

 

(2) If the director of city development shall determine that the development plan or any phase thereof is no longer viable, he shall present the matter to the city plan commission for recommendation to the city council. Simultaneously therewith, the director may request the city plan commission to review the existing zoning classification. The director may request that the property be rezoned to that district which immediately preceded the approval of the planned district.

 

(3) The city plan commission shall hold a public hearing on the issue of voiding the development plan or any phase thereof and on the issue of rezoning the property, if so requested by the director of city development. The recommendation of the city plan commission shall be referred to the city council.

 

(4) After a public hearing, the city council shall have the final determination as to whether the development plan or any phase thereof shall be voided or remain in effect, as well as to whether the property should be rezoned.

 

(5) If the director of city development shall determine that the development plan or any phase thereof is viable or necessary to carry out the requirements of this chapter, the director of city development shall declare that the development plan or any phase thereof shall remain in effect; provided, however, that the director shall report monthly to the city plan commission detailing the plans to remain in effect.

 

(6) Nothing stated within this section shall be deemed to prohibit an application for an amendment to or a subsequent application for a planned district.

 

Sec. 80-281. Amendments to planned district development plan.

 

(a) In the course of carrying out any stage of the development, certain plan revisions or adjustments of detail may be permitted if approved by the Director of City Development. However, such revisions or adjustments of detail must be in compliance with all applicable regulations of this chapter and in substantial compliance with the final plan as approved by the City Plan Commission.

 

(b) If the Director of City Development determines that the modifications are not in accordance with the final plan approval, he/she shall deny the request. The applicant may proceed with the approved final plan or may file an amended development plan for the planned district in the same manner as provided for a zoning amendment in Section 80-350.


 

Section 2. That the Council finds and declares that before taking any action on the proposed amendment hereinabove, all public notices and hearings required by the Zoning Ordinance have been given and had.
