§ 1435-011-2. Relationship to Planned Development (PD) Districts  


Latest version.
  • Whenever a planned development district is located within or overlaps a Historic District or contains a Historic Landmark or Historic Site, the provisions of this Chapter 1435 and any applicable conservation guidelines shall apply and shall be fully incorporated in the final development plan for the planned development district. More specifically, the process for reviewing and issuing a certificate of appropriateness in a planned development district is as follows:

    (a) Concept Plan Approval Stage: The Urban Conservator shall review all concept plans submitted for the creation of new planned development districts located within or overlapping a Historic District or containing a Historic Landmark or Historic Site. Prior to the City Planning Commission's review of a concept plan, the Urban Conservator shall identify any and all necessary certificates of appropriateness in writing to the City Planning Commission. If no certificates of appropriateness are identifiable on the concept plan, then the Urban Conservator shall indicate as such in writing to the City Planning Commission. The City Planning Commission's approval of any such concept plan shall be expressly conditioned upon the approval of the certificates of appropriateness identified by the Urban Conservator as part of the final development plan.

    (b) Final Development Plan Approval Stage: The Historic Conservation Board shall review all final development plans submitted for the creation of a new planned development district located within or overlapping a Historic District or containing a Historic Landmark or Historic Site. Prior to the City Planning Commission's review of a final development plan, the Historic Conservation Board shall make written findings to the City Planning Commission about its approval, conditional approval, or denial of any certificates of appropriateness identified in (a) above, and for any additional certificates of appropriateness that it may identify that were not readily apparent from the concept plan. In reviewing a final development plan, the City Planning Commission may overrule the Historic Conservation Board's written findings by a two-thirds (2/3) majority vote of the City Planning Commission; which shall constitute a final order of the City Planning Commission appealable to the Zoning Board of Appeals pursuant to Section 1429-17 above.

    (c) Post Final Development Plan Approval: All certificates of appropriateness which may be required by this Chapter 1435 after the approval of a final development plan shall be reviewed and determined in accordance with Section 1435-09 above.
