Q-10-102 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE FOR THE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT
It is the intent of this district to provide flexibility from conventional zoning regulations with increased public review for planned development district projects in order to:
A. Encourage well planned, efficient urban development.
B. Allow a planned and coordinated mix of land uses, which are compatible and are harmonious, but previously discouraged by conventional zoning procedures.
C. Encourage more creative, higher quality and more ecological urban design, with special consideration given to projects which incorporate desirable design features, including but limited to underground parking, orientation, or design to take advantage of solar energy, environmental preservation, historic preservation, handicapped accessible structures, unique use of open spaces, or other desirable design features.
D. Improve communication and cooperation among the City, land developers, and interested residents in the urbanization of new lands and the renewal of existing deteriorated areas.
Q-10-103 SCOPE OF REGULATIONS
The regulations set forth in this chapter, or set forth elsewhere in this title when referred to in this chapter, are the district regulations in the Planned Development District. Functions of the Planning Department or the Planning Director shall be performed by the Public Works Director.
Q-10-104 COMPLIANCE WITH COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
The developments within the planned development district shall comply with the policies and design standards of the Fort Pierre Comprehensive Development Plan. Said development shall be mutually compatible with adjacent projected developments.
Q-10-105 REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES
A. Initial development plan. When a petitioner wants to request rezoning to the planned development district, he shall submit his request to the City Planning and Zoning Commission, showing the information specified in Q-10-105 below, a minimum of thirty (30) days prior to the City Planning and Zoning Commission meeting at which consideration is desired. After the planned development request has been reviewed, the City Planning and Zoning Commission shall make a recommendation to the City Council and, if applicable, to the County Commission, on the requested rezoning. The City Council and, if applicable, the County Commission, shall then act to approve or deny said request. No building permit shall be issued within the development until the final development plan is approved and the plat is filed.
B. Final development plan. Prior to construction on any lots in the planned development, the petitioner shall present a final development plan showing the information specified in Q-10-106 to the City Planning and Zoning Commission, which shall make a recommendation to the City Council on the said plan. The City Council shall have the sole authority to approve, deny, or amend said plan.
The final development plan may be submitted in conjunction with the initial development plan for concurrent approval on any subareas the developer is ready to commit to a final plat. All the information required for both an initial and final development plan must be shown for the area submitted for concurrent approval, except that the developer may reference the requirements of one of the traditional zoning districts as the development standard for a particular subarea.
Signs shall be posted on the property for a continuous period of five (5) days immediately prior to any public hearing held by the Planning and Zoning Commission or City Council to consider any final development plan. Said signs shall be furnished by the Department of Planning and Building Services and posted by the applicant in the numbers and locations prescribed by the Director.
