74-67 Fire or Police Stations
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
In all Residence Districts, the City Planning Commission may permit fire or police stations, provided that the following findings are made:
(a) that such use will serve the residential area within which it is provided to be located; that there are serious difficulties in locating it in a district wherein it is permitted as-of-right and from which it could serve the residential area, which make it necessary to locate such use within a Residence District; and
(b) in the case of fire stations, that such use is so located as to minimize the movement of fire apparatus through local streets in residential areas.
For any such use, the Commission may permit appropriate modifications of the applicable regulations of Article II, Chapter 3, provided that such use complies with all the applicable district bulk regulations for community facility buildings as set forth in Article II, Chapter 4.
The Commission may prescribe appropriate conditions or safeguards to minimize adverse effects on the character of the surrounding area, including requirements for landscaping.
