119-03 Applicability of Large-Scale Residential Development Regulations
Any development on a zoning lot having an average percent of slope of 10 percent or greater, which is used predominantly for residential use, may be treated as a large-scale residential development and special authorizations or special permits for such developments may be granted in accordance with the provisions of Article VII, Chapter 8, as modified herein, regardless of whether such development will have the area, number of buildings or number of dwelling units specified in the definition of large-scale residential developments as set forth in Section 12-10 (DEFINITIONS). However, bonuses that may be granted for large-scale residential developments under the provisions of Sections 78-32 (Bonus for Good Site Plan), 78-33 (Bonus for Common Open Space) or 78-35 (Special Bonus Provisions) may not be granted for developments that have less than the minimum area, number of buildings or number of dwelling units required by the definition of a large-scale residential development.
Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 78-06 (Ownership), a zoning lot having an average percent of slope of 10 percent or greater that is the subject of an application under this Section may include adjacent properties in more than one ownership, provided that the application is filed jointly by the owners of all the properties included. Any subdivision of the tract before, during or after development shall be subject to the provisions of Section 78-51 (General Provisions).
