G.        B5 Planned Community Commercial/Office District (83-74)  [back to top]

1.         Purpose.  The Planned Community Commercial/Office District is an incentive zoning district intended to provide for alternative development of compatible commercial and office uses providing shopping, services and professional and business offices in locations which provide convenient access for residents of Addison and surrounding communities.  The District regulations include standards for site development intended to allow a scale of commercial and office use related to the available land area and surrounding areas, and encourage assembly of smaller parcels so that proper site development and access may be provided.  The District also provides specific standards for landscaping and other features to produce a high quality of site development.

2.         General Requirements. 

a.         No district shall be established under this classification unless it is a contiguous compact parcel of land with not less than 100 feet of frontage on a major street as identified in the Official Map of the Village; or unless it is contiguous to an established Planned Community Commercial/Office District.

b.         No lot, parcel, or tract of land shall be used and no building or structure shall be erected, unless a Special Use Permit for a Planned Development is granted in accordance with the following standards:

(2)       A Planned Development may consist of conventionally subdivided lots to be sold; undivided single ownership; separate condominium units; or other ownership methods, provided that any instrument by which the Planned Development is established shall be binding in perpetuity on all property within the Planned Development.  (83-74)

(3)       A Planned Development may consist of separate phases or units, provided that no separate phases or unit shall be less than two acres in size if two acres of consolidated, undeveloped property can be contiguously achieved. Where parcels of smaller size cannot be assembled to incorporate two acres and if a finding is made by the Planning and Zoning Commission and Village Board that special circumstances are present not caused by the owner and that it is in the best interests of the Village to have the property developed as part of a planned development rather than allow it to lie fallow and unused or to be improvidently planned, a variation of the minimum acreage required may be granted through the Planned Unit Development ordinance. (87-22; 12-06)

c.         No outside storage shall be permitted in the district, and no variation to allow any outside storage may be granted; provided, however, that indoor storage, warehousing, showroom storage and distribution may be permitted as accessory uses if said uses are confined to less than 30 percent of the floor area of a particular use.    (Ord. 90-107)
