1.         Purpose.  The Planned Office-Research/Industrial District is an incentive zoning district intended to provide for office-research and nuisance-free industrial uses in a well-designed and maintained environment.  This district would be less intense in character than the M1 Limited Manufacturing District while providing a broader base of services to meet the needs not only of those working within the district, but also of the general public.  Ancillary limited commercial uses such as hotels, restaurants  and health clubs may be located in the district where access is available from the rest of the district and the surrounding road network.  Development in the district is to be characterized by innovative planning to provide a campus-like environment; spacious building sites with extensive setbacks; controlled ingress and egress; permanent landscaping of open spaces; and screening necessary to maintain a proper relationship with adjacent areas. (83-73)

2.         General Requirements.   The following general requirements, performance standards, uses, bulk regulations and development standards shall apply to all development in the Planned Office-Research/Industrial District, except for such variations as may be permitted by the Board of Trustees: (96-47)

a.         No district shall be established under this classification unless it is a compact, contiguous parcel of land, not less than 20 acres in size and under unified ownership or control at the time such district is established; or unless it is contiguous to an established Planned Office-Research/Industrial District and is at least five acres in size.

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 Unit Development is granted in accordance with  the following standards:

SECTION VII. PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS

Planned developments are of such substantially different character from other special uses that specific and additional standards and exceptions are hereby established to govern the recommendations of the Planning and Zoning Commission and the action of the Village Board of Trustees. (12-06)

A.        Planned Development. [back to top] A planned development is a use of land which offers benefits to the neighborhood of which it is a part or to the general public welfare beyond those required by this Zoning Ordinance and which use of land will contain or provide amenities not otherwise required by law, including but not limited to provisions for common open space, recreational facilities, or specific design, engineering, architectural, site planning or landscape features.

B.        Application for Preliminary Approval of a Planned Development Special Use Permit. [back to top] Any person or persons owning lots or land within the Village or any person or persons owning lots of land outside the Village coming in under a pre-annexation agreement may apply to the Planning and Zoning Commission for preliminary approval of a planned development special use permit. The Planning and Zoning Commission shall hold a public hearing on the application and may approve or disapprove an application or make recommendations to the Village Board, regarding changes or revisions that it deems desirable. Following Village Board approval, which shall be valid for two years, the applicants may proceed with the preparation of the Final Planned Development. (12-06) 

C.        Final Approval of a Planned Development Special Use Permit. [back to top] The procedure for securing final approval shall be the same as in B. above, but the plans shall be in more detail. Final approval for each unit of the development as delineated in the preliminary approval by the Village Board shall be valid for one year. There shall also be submitted with the final plan, a written agreement of restrictions signed by the owners of the planned development, assuring the Village that the development will be carried out in full compliance with the final plan and within the time schedule of construction submitted with the final plan. 

D.        General Standards.   [back to top] A planned development shall conform to the following requirements: 

1.         The number of dwelling units erected shall not exceed the number permitted by the regulations of the district in which it is located unless an exception is permitted as stipulated under Bulk Regulations, E. sub-section of this section.

2.         The yards and open spaces adjoining the boundaries of the project shall not be less than the yard requirements of the district in which it is located.

3.         No building is permitted to exceed the height limit of the district by more than 10 percent.

4.         If more intensive uses (i.e.. uses other than which the district is zoned, such as B2 Community Business District usage in R3 General Residence Districts) are granted than are permitted by the district regulations, there must be clear evidence that such uses are needed to service the project, provided the Planning and Zoning Commission shall find:

a.         That the uses permitted by such exceptions are necessary or desirable and are appropriate with respect to the primary purpose of the development;

b.         That the uses permitted by such exception are not of such a nature or so located as to exercise a detrimental influence on the development nor on the surrounding neighborhood;

c.         That not more than 15 percent of the gross floor area of such development shall be devoted to the uses permitted by said exception;

d.         That in a Planned Industrial Development such additional uses allowed by exception shall conform with the performance standards of the district in which the development is located;

e.         That the use exceptions so allowed are recorded on the zoning district maps by appropriate symbols or by reference to documents on file with the Building Commissioner;

f.          Where the planned development is to be located in a residential district, no use exceptions shall be allowed unless the size of the planned development exceeds 10 acres.

5.         The amount of off-street parking must be adequate to serve the needs of the projects, and the Village Board may require more off-street parking than is otherwise required by this ordinance.

6.         If any open space or recreational facility is to be used solely by the residents of the project unless the development is under single ownership, adequate provisions shall be made for assessments against the property within the project so that such facilities can be properly improved, maintained and operated.

7.         Underground utilities including communications and electric systems, are required within the limits of a planned development. Appurtenances to these systems which can be effectively screened may be excepted from this requirement if the Village Board finds that such exemption will not violate the intent or character of the development.

E.        Bulk Regulations [back to top] In the case of any Planned Development, the Planning and Zoning Commission may recommend, and the Village Board may authorize, exceptions to the applicable bulk regulations of this section within the boundaries of such development, provided that the Planning and Zoning Commission shall find: (12-06)

1.         That such exception shall be solely for the purpose of encouraging a desirable living environment no less beneficial to the residents or occupants of such development, as well as of neighboring properties, than would be obtained under the bulk regulations of this ordinance for buildings developed on separate zoning lots.

2.         The maximum parcel coverage in a residential planned development may not exceed 30 percent in the residential zoning districts.

3.         Other standards for density, yard regulations, parking, loading and screening for a planned development shall be governed by the standards of the residential, commercial or industrial zoning district(s) most similar in nature and function to the proposed planned development as determined by the Village Board. Standards for public improvements shall be governed by the applicable ordinances and laws of the Village. Exceptions to these standards by the Village Board are possible when they find that such exceptions are warranted in terms of the total proposed development.  However, in regard to developments containing residential uses;

a.         In no event shall the floor area ratio exceed more than 15 percent over that prescribed in this ordinance for the district in which it is located.

b.         In no event shall the minimum square footage per dwelling unit requirements applicable to such districts be decreased by more than 15 percent.  A further decrease of not more than 10 percent on the already reduced square footage per dwelling unit may be permitted in the event that parking facilities are provided either underground or in the building proper, i.e. for each underground or on-building parking space, an equivalent reduction may be permitted to the allowable limit of 10 percent before specified.

F.         Issuance of Permits. [back to top] Whenever the Village Board approves the final plan and accompanying agreements, the Building Commissioner shall issue the necessary permits for all of the project or for such units thereof that are to be constructed. 

G.        Time Limit. [back to top] If no construction has been started within one year from the date of approval of the final plan, the permits shall be declared null and void and the project shall not be initiated unless it is resubmitted and reapproved in the same manner that it was approved in the first instance.  The Village Board may, however, extend the period for initiating construction upon a showing of good and sufficient cause. 

H.        Performance. [back to top] At the time of the granting of the permit, the Village Board shall make appropriate arrangements with the applicant which will insure the accomplishment at the scheduled times, of the public improvements and grants of easement shown on the approved final plan.
