INTENT Because of its location adjacent to the in the Olde Reynoldsburg Neighborhood District (ORD-N) future development should support a more diverse range of housing options and should be well integrated with surrounding uses while allowing for more compact development to accommodate smaller household sizes, an aging population, and a growing number of households without children. Multi-unit buildings with common open spaces are encouraged where appropriate, Developments may include a range of housing options with different price points and styles including stacked flats, higher density single-family, row houses, and apartments. Reduced setbacks, improved streetscapes, and smaller blocks all contribute to improved walkabilty. B.

General Standards (1) Size, Mass and Scale: The scale of 35 Specific Use Regulations Allowable Use Conditional Use P C VIV. Design Guidelines for Olde Reynoldsburg A. Purpose

DISTRICTS AND ZONES buildings and accessory structures (including canopies) shall be appropriate to the scale of structures. (2) Proportions of Bays and Openings: All building bays, including porches, colonnades and porticos as appropriate, shall be square or vertical in proportion, unless the design merits a horizontallyproportioned opening. Wall openings, with the exception of transoms and storefronts, shall be square or vertical in proportion. The facade of a proposed building should draw upon the proportion and number of bays in surrounding buildings, as defined by windows, doors, and column spacing, to establish a compatible scale. (3) Building Materials: Building wall materials shall be combined on each facade only horizontally, unless the building is broken vertically by a change of plane, or a vertical architectural element. Heavier materials, such as masonry and stucco, shall be located below lighter materials, such as cement fiber or wood siding. (4) Roof Forms: Where pitched roofs exist, primary roofs shall have a minimum slope of 4:12, while ancillary roof slopes may be no less than 2:12. (5) Garages and Accessory Structures: Attached garages, detached garages, and other accessory structures shall be subordinate in height, footprint, and proportion to the primary structure on the site, and shall be compatible with the principal structure in terms of roof form, materials, and color. Where a garage contains an accessory dwelling unit above, it may exceed the height of the primary structure. (6) Trash, Mechanical, Utility and Service Equipment and Areas i. Loading docks, service areas, and trash disposal facilities (e.g., 36 trash and recycling receptacles, compactors, dumpsters) shall be hidden or screened from view of streets, parks, squares, or significant pedestrian spaces. Loading areas may be oriented toward adjoining developed properties that are zoned for nonresidential uses, if such loading areas are screened from view. ii. Mechanical equipment, such as ventilation systems, commercial exhaust fans, rooftop terminations, commercial cooling equipment, heating and air conditioning units, TV antennas, and satellite dishes, shall be hidden or screened from view. Lattice, open brick enclosures, or vegetation can be used to conceal mechanical equipment. Screening material shall be properly maintained. If vegetation is used for screening, the mature size of the vegetation shall be considered so that equipment air flow will not be compromised. (7) Colors: Buildings and additional site elements — e.g., bollards, arbors, drive-thru canopies, sign posts — shall not be painted in a color or pattern that expresses corporate identify, to the extent that the paint color or pattern is not consistent with the design standards of the district. Fluorescent colors, such as ASHTO safety yellow, are also prohibited except where required by a public agency. D. Specific Standards (1) Building Materials and Details. i. Building walls shall be finished in 1 or more (but not more than 3) of the following materials: (a) Wood;

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE SECTION 1103.15 BRICE & EAST MAIN STREET AND EAST MAIN STREET INSIGHT DISTRICTS Example Development Pattern in Brice & East Main Street District Example Development Pattern in East Main Street District I. Purpose and Intent Brice and East Main Street and the East Main Street Insight Districts are intended to create compact, mixed-use, walkable environments, remove regulatory barriers, and encourage the establishment of local enterprises (e.g. Main Street businesses, start-up makers and other platforms such as shared work spaces, community hubs, and markets). By creating this type of physical environment and reducing regulatory barriers in these two Insight Districts, investors and start-up businesses will be more likely to deploy capital. This will, in turn, enhance community character and allow existing businesses and residents to remain along with newer uses. The Brice and Main Street Insight District is intended to be more of an urban, mixed-use zone or Transit oriented Development (TOD) that centers around a transportation hub or multi-modal transportation and leverages the area’s proximity to major public transportation routes. The East Main Street Insight District is intended to serve as a transportation corridor lined with compact, mixed-use, development and with standards to address the transition area where each corridor abuts adjoining neighborhoods. 39

DISTRICTS AND ZONES Regulations found in the Insight Districts that are unique to both zones include: • Transit supportive development standards: Walkways connecting streets to buildings and locating buildings or pedestrian plazas close to transit stops can set up development to accommodate future transit. • On-site facilities for pedestrian, bike, and vehicular travel: Standards for bike parking and pedestrian access, particularly within 1/4 mile or not more than 1/2 mile of a transit stop. • Adjusted regulations for nonconforming buildings and uses: Leaves the nonconforming section of the zoning code intact on nuisances but more lenient on improvements and adaptive re-use. • Right-sized application fees: Fees are adjusted to reflect the policies of the community. If infill and suburban retrofit is a priority, fees in those environments should are less. • Adjust front setback regulations:. Amend front setback regulations to specify setback ranges instead of just minimums. • Reduced parking requirements for affordable housing: The reduction depends upon the urban/ suburban context and public transportation access. • Reduced minimum parking requirements: Requiring more parking than is necessary is a financial barrier to development, wastes site area for parking, and increases impervious surface. 40

DISTRICTS AND ZONES The following supplemental regulations shall apply to all development in the Brice and Main Street and East Main Street Insight Zones. The intent of these regulations to promote the development of the City’s autooriented corridors to allow for more residential development and access to employment opportunities. The standards and guidelines set forth herein are not intended to stifle innovative design. Instead, these regulations should serve as minimum standards and guidelines to ensure that new development and redevelopment advances the purposes described under this section. V. Transit Supportive Development A. Enable bus stops, pullouts, shelters, and appropriate road geometry. B. Retail, office, institutional buildings provide convenient access to transit: (1) Walkways connecting streets to buildings; (2) Within ½ mile of transit stop: Bicycle facilities, including bicycle racks and areas for storing scooters; and (3) At major transit stops: i. Buildings located within 20 feet or provide pedestrian plaza; ii. Reasonably direct connection to buildings; iii. Accessibility for disabled persons; iv. Easement or dedication for shelter if transit provider requests; v. Lighting; vi. Accommodations for seating or leaning; vii. Bicycle facilities, including bike racks and areas for storing scooters. 50 VI. Exceptions and Reductions in Parking Standards A. There is no minimum number of required automobile parking spaces for uses within Brice and Main Street and East Main Street Insight Zones. The applicant may propose a parking standard that is different than the standard under 1105.01 Off-Street Parking and Loading for review and action by the Planning and Zoning Administrator. (1) Site has a bus stop with frequent transit service located adjacent to it, and the site’s frontage is improved with a bus stop waiting shelter, consistent with the standards of the applicable transit service provider: Allow up to a 20 percent reduction to the standard number of automobile parking spaces; (2) Site has dedicated parking spaces for carpool or vanpool vehicles: Allow up to a 10 percent reduction to the standard number of automobile parking spaces; (3) Site has dedicated parking spaces for motorcycles, scooters, or electric carts: (4) Site has more than the minimum number of required bicycle parking spaces: Allow up to a 5 percent reduction to the number of automobile parking spaces. VII. Lot Coverage Bonus A. The Planning and Zoning Administrator, subject to review, may approve increases to the lot coverage standards as follows: (1) Lot coverage may increase by up to one-half square foot for every one square foot of proposed automobile parking area to be contained in a parking structure, either above or below leasable ground floor space (e.g., residential, commercial, or civic use),

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE not to exceed a 20 percent increase in allowable coverage. (2) Lot coverage may increase by up to one-half a square foot for every one square foot of proposed parking area paving that uses a City-approved porous or permeable paving material (i.e., allowing stormwater infiltration). (3) Lot coverage may increase by up to onehalf a square foot for every one square foot of City-approved water quality treatment area (e.g., vegetative swale or bio-filtration) to be provided on the subject site. (4) In approving increases in lot coverage under subsections i-iii of this section, the City may require additional landscape buffering or screening, above that which is required by other provisions of this code, and may impose reasonable conditions of approval to ensure the ongoing maintenance of parking areas and surface water management facilities. (5) Notwithstanding the lot coverage increases authorized by this section, all other development standards of this chapter, and other applicable provisions of this Code, must be met. VIII. Building Height Transition To provide for compatible scale and height relationships between new multi-story buildings and existing single-story dwellings, new buildings shall maintain a building height transition to adjacent single-story building(s), as follows: A. This standard applies to new and vertically expanded buildings and structures (in any zone) within 40 feet (as measured horizontally) of an existing single-story building with a height of 20 feet or less; and B. The building height transition standard is met 51 where the new or vertically expanded building or structure meets the following criteria: (1) The existing single-story dwelling is located within 40 feet of, and on the same side of the street as, the proposed structure. (2) The height of the proposed structure is not more than 120 percent of the height of the subject single-story dwelling. (3) Where the proposed structure is to be located between two existing single-story dwellings, the height of the proposed structure shall not exceed 120 percent of the average maximum height of both adjacent dwellings. For example, where the two adjacent dwellings have an average maximum height of 24 feet, the new or vertically expanded structure shall not exceed 28.8 feet in height. C. Exception: The building height transition standard does not apply when the approval body finds that the subject single-story buildings located within 40 of the subject site are redevelopable. “Redevelopable,” for the purposes of this section, means a lot either has an assessed market value that exceeds the assessed market value of all improvements on the lot, based on the most recent data from the [name ] County Assessor’s Office; or the front yard of the subject lot is large enough that it could be subdivided based on the minimum lot size standards of the applicable zone.

DISTRICTS AND ZONES SECTION 1103.17 SUBURBAN RESIDENTIAL ZONE (SR) I. Purpose and Intent A. The Suburban Residential (SR) Zone is intended to regulate all land in the city platted for medium-scale suburban single-unit residential development.

DISTRICTS AND ZONES SECTION 1103.29 OPEN SPACE TYPOLOGIES The following Open Space Typologies cover land that is intended to be undeveloped within the Olde Reynoldsburg District (ORD Commercial and ORD Neighborhood), consistent with the goals of the Comprehensive Plan. A. GREENWAY AND TRAIL 1. Typical Lot Configuration B. PLAZA 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description Greenways are primarily linear open spaces that connect other types of open spaces as part of a larger open space system. They typically include a path or trail as a primary feature. The greenway and trail open space is most effect when connecting to another open space type. 2. Description Plazas are spaces available for civic purposes and commercial activities intended to add to the vibrancy of streets and neighborhoods. Building frontages typically define the edges of these spaces. The landscape consists of primarily hardscape. If trees are included, they are formally arranged and of appropriate scale to the space. 96

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE C. SQUARE 1. Typical Lot Configuration D. GREEN 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description Squares are medium scale formal open spaces designed to serve as gathering spaces in prominent commercial, civic and mixed-use settings. Squares are typically rectilinear and framed on all sides by streets. They are typically designed with a combination of both hardscape and landscape areas and contain amenities including, but not limited to benches and seating areas, planting areas, walking paths, gazebos or pavilions, fountains, and public art. 2. Description Greens are medium-scale, informal open spaces designed to provide for active or passive recreation in neighborhood settings, including some landscape areas and is generally for those who live within walking distance. 97

DISTRICTS AND ZONES E. PASSAGE 1. Typical Lot Configuration F. PARK 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description A passage is an informal or formal gathering space that serves equally as a pedestrian connector between other gathering places or between streetscapes. Passages are near the middle of a block, providing easy walking access through the block. A passage provides additional frontage opportunities for the shops and/or houses along its edges. 2. Description Parks are larger-scale, typically informal open spaces designed to provide a variety of active and passive recreational opportunities to the general public. Parks may include natural areas. These open spaces may have a variety of forms, with edges defined by streets, neighborhoods, or natural features. Landscaping may be required as deemed appropriate by the Review Authority. 98

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE G. SPORT FIELD 1. Typical Lot Configuration H. POCKET PLAZA 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description A Sports Field typology is a space or series of open spaces designed for sports activities. Sports fields often accommodate several individual sports games at the same time and may feature a concession area and seating for spectators. Due to the larger amounts of people attracted to this type, sports fields are located to maintain compatibility with adjacent neighborhoods. Landscaping may be required as deemed appropriate by the Review Authority. 2. Description Pocket plazas are small-scale, primarily hardscaped open spaces designed to provide opportunities for impromptu gathering and resting areas for passersby and for those who live or work in adjacent buildings or nearby destinations. Pocket plazas are typically designed as an extension from the public sidewalk, but clearly delineated as a separate space using features including, but not limited to landscaping and/or seating walls. Pocket Plazas are typically located along highly trafficked streets and in commercial areas with frequent pedestrian activity. 99

DISTRICTS AND ZONES I. POCKET PARK 1. Typical Lot Configuration J. NATURE 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description Pocket parks are small-scale, primarily landscaped open spaces designed to provide opportunities for neighborhood gathering and typically passive recreation, generally for those who live within walking distance. Pocket parks are typically located in residential neighborhood settings. Landscaping may be required as deemed appropriate by the Review Authority. 2. Description Areas that are to remain undeveloped and that generate their physical character through their natural topography, trees, and plants. This open space type is preserved from any development. 100

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE SECTION 1103.31 FRONTAGE TYPOLOGIES The following Frontage Typologies cover the area between the building façade and the front lot line or rightof-way and intended to ensure projects that establish or reinforce the appropriate frontage character within Olde Reynoldsburg District (ORD Commercial and ORD Neighborhood), consistent with the goals of the Comprehensive Plan. A. SHOPFRONT 1. Typical Lot Configuration B. PATIO 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description The shopfront is a traditional ground floor frontage treatment designed for active commercial uses (typically retail and dining) and a high degree of pedestrian activity between the public sidewalk and commercial spaces. A shopfront treatment includes one or more commercial tenant storefronts consisting of large windows and a direct tenant entrance from the sidewalk, typically at sidewalk grade. Storefront characteristics typically include prominent entrances, primarily composed of glass, and tenant signage. If not located in a zero lot line condition (immediately behind the sidewalk), the intervening front setback may be paved as an extension of the sidewalk streetscape to the building façade. All or portions of the setback may be designated for use as outdoor seating or dining/bar space. The setback may also include landscaping, either at grade with the sidewalk along the building foundation, or in raised beds or planters. 2. Description The patio frontage is used primarily to provide outdoor seating associated with ground floor dining uses within a building. The patio is a hardscaped area that may be located to the front or side of a building between the building and sidewalk. 101

DISTRICTS AND ZONES C. YARD 1. Typical Lot Configuration D. RAISED YARD 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description The yard is a typical landscape setback which may consist of open lawn, landscape beds, or some combination of the two. It may contain hardscape elements as a secondary feature and may be edged by a low fence or masonry wall. Yards are typically at the same or similar grade as the adjacent sidewalk and include a front walk connecting the public sidewalk to the main entrance of a building (see Raised Yard as a variation). This is the common frontage treatment for houses and other neighborhood-scale residential buildings, and is typically combined with other a porch or stoop building frontage. A yard may also be used for flex building types designed for any combination of uses. 2. Description The Raised Yard Frontage Type is a variation of the front yard. It generally represents an historic residential lot character in which the front yard is elevated above the sidewalk, often in a sloped condition and sometimes with a masonry retaining wall (often composed of dry-laid limestone) at the sidewalk edge, or some combination of the two. The raised yard is often a continuous frontage condition for multiple adjacent lots. Front walks connecting the public sidewalk to the main building entrance are typically terraced with a set of steps at or near the public sidewalk and a second set of steps at the building façade, often at a front porch or stoop (see Porch and Stoop Frontage Types). The raised yard differs from the Terrace Frontage type in that buildings are typically set back farther from the street and the yard primarily consists of turf lawn or landscaping. 102

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE E. PORCH 1. Typical Lot Configuration F. STOOP 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description Common frontage type for residential building types. Porches should be an extension of the internal living space. 2. Description Entry landing for buildings that have elevated first floors to secure privacy for first floor windows. Stoops may have perimeter railings and walls. Stoops can be covered or uncovered and can be located anywhere along the building face. 103

DISTRICTS AND ZONES G. TERRACE 1. Typical Lot Configuration H. FORECOURT 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description In the Terrace Frontage Type, the main facade is at or near the property line with an elevated terrace providing public circulation along the facade. This Type can be used to provide at-grade access while accommodating a grade change and is frequently used together with a shopfront. Frequent steps up to the terrace are necessary to avoid dead walls and maximize access. A terrace treatment differs from the Raised Yard Frontage type in that the building is typically located closer to the sidewalk and the terraced setback is architecturally integrated with the building façade, consisting of more hardscape materials. Raised planters may be incorporated as part of a terrace frontage. 2. Description The forecourt frontage treatment allows for a portion of a building façade to be set farther back from the street, creating a courtyard condition with street frontage. A forecourt condition may also be created through the composition of three separate buildings, oriented with the central building setback farther from the others. A forecourt may include open access to the public sidewalk with one or more entrances into the building, or may be fenced and elevated as a semi-private space, partially visible from the public realm. The forecourt area typically includes a combination of landscape and hardscape treatments, and may include outdoor amenities and seating areas associated with the building(s). 104

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE I. STREETWALL 1. Typical Lot Configuration 2. Description The streetwall frontage is used to create a continuous and defined edge along parking lots where located in close proximity to a street and sidewalk. Streetwalls are typically low (at or below waist height of a passing pedestrian) and may be composed entirely of masonry, a combination of decorative metal fencing with masonry columns, raised planters, a landscape hedge treatment, or some combination of these. Masonry street walls are typically designed to coordinate with the principal building architecture and often are physically connected to the building façade. Street walls may be interrupted with a pedestrian walk connection to the public sidewalk. For new projects or redevelopment, street walls are intended for use along any portion of lot frontage in which side or rear parking is located adjacent to or near the public sidewalk, but are secondary to other frontage types associated with the principal building and should not dominate the entire lot frontage. Streetwalls are also an effective design approach to improve existing auto-oriented sites for which all or substantial portions of a primary frontage consist of parking. 105

The floor area of the proposed use; 3. The anticipated number of employees and patrons; and 4. Any evidence submitted regarding the parking demand for the same use on similar existing sites. 125

COMMON REGULATIONS iii. Calculation for Certain Uses. For uses for which required parking is based on number of dwelling units, floor area, seats, or beds, the number of required parking spaces shall be determined from drawings provided by the applicant and may be further confirmed by measurement of the actual built floor area. When calculation of required parking results in a fraction, then the fraction shall be rounded to the next higher whole number. iv. Calculation for Mixed-Uses. For properties having mixed or multiple uses, the number of required parking spaces shall be the sum of those required for the various uses computed separately, except as otherwise provided. F. Minimum Off-Street Parking Space Requirement Reductions. i. Minimum Off-Street Parking Space Reduction Standards. The minimum number of off-street parking spaces required by Table 1105.01A may be reduced for a land use or land uses upon approval of an application demonstrating one or more of the off-street parking space reduction conditions set forth under Sections (F)(ii), F(v), F(vi), or F(vii) below; provided however, under no circumstances shall the cumulative reduction of minimum parking spaces exceed 30% of the minimum number of off-street parking spaces required for a land use. ii. Shared Parking Plan. Where a mix of land uses on one or more properties or within one or more buildings can demonstrate parking utilization in staggered peak periods, a shared parking plan may be approved by the Planning and Zoning Administrator to the reduce the minimum number of required off-street parking spaces for the applicable land use(s). A shared parking plan for the reduction of off-street parking requirements may be submitted to the Planning and Zoning Administrator subject to the following requirements: 1. Shared parking plans must incorporate parking facilities located within five hundred feet (500 ft.) of the subject property or subject properties; and 2. To the greatest extent practicable, adjacent lots included in a shared parking plan shall be connected for vehicular passage and shall provide safe and efficient pedestrian access to all uses served by the parking facilities. iii. Review of Shared Parking Plan. A decision pertaining to an application for a shared parking plan shall be based on the following factors: 1. The number of parking spaces otherwise required for the land uses that will share the parking facilities designated in the shared parking plan; 2. Documentation that the peak parking utilization for the land uses occurs at different days and/or times; 3. The demonstrated accessibility of the shared parking facilities; and 4. Such other relevant documentation as the applicant(s) may provide to the City in conjunction with a parking reduction application. iv. Effect of Approval of Shared Parking Plan. When a shared parking plan application is approved, the modified number of required off-street parking spaces for the applicable land uses shall be the largest number of parking spaces needed for the applicable land uses during the most intensive time period of parking utilization as demonstrated by the evidence presented with the application. v. Auto-Share Parking Spaces. The required minimum number of off-street parking spaces for a 126

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE land use may be reduced by up to four (4) off-street parking spaces for each off-street parking space that is reserved for auto-share parking; provided however the satisfaction of this parking reduction condition may not result in an off-street parking space reduction in excess of 10%. Auto-share parking spaces shall be designed in a plan to be submitted for review by the Planning and Zoning Administrator; such plan must propose how the auto-share parking spaces will be reserved for auto-share parking. vi. Transit Proximity. The required minimum number of off-street parking spaces for a land use or land uses may be reduced by up to 10% if more than 50% of the subject property is located within 1,200 feet of any public transit stop. If an existing transit stop is subsequently eliminated, any previously permitted parking reduction shall remain valid, provided that an active transit route remains within 1,200 feet of the development. vii. Bike Lockers and Shower Facilities. The required minimum number of off-street parking spaces for a non-residential development may be reduced by 5% if such development contains shower and clothing and bike locker facilities for bicycle commuting employees. The required minimum number of off-street parking spaces for a multi-family development may be reduced by 5% is such development contains interior bicycle parking for residents. In each case, the reduction shall apply only to that portion of the minimum off-street parking requirement attributable to the employees or residents that have access to the shower and locker facilities. viii. Review and Revocation. Upon the grant of a reduction in the minimum number of off-street parking spaces hereunder, the Planning and Zoning Administrator shall periodically review the land uses associated with any approval to determine compliance with such approval. If the Planning and Zoning Administrator determines upon review of any approved application that the terms of any approved plan are not being complied with, then the Planning and zoning Administrator may revoke such approval, and the applicable land use shall be required to satisfy the minimum off-street parking requirement otherwise set forth under Table 1105.01A hereof.

Storage buildings of this type shall be located behind the main structure and shall conform with the minimum lot line setbacks listed in this section. SECTION 1105.07 LANDSCAPING AND BUFFERING A. Purpose and Intent. These standards are intended to establish landscaping regulations that: i. Improve the aesthetic appearance of setback areas, common open space areas, public rights-ofway and off-street vehicular parking areas; ii. Encourage the preservation of existing trees and natural features; iii. Promote compatibility among different land uses; iv. Promote the use of generally accepted landscape design principles; and v. Protect public health, safety and welfare by minimizing the impact of all forms of physical and visual pollution, controlling soil erosion, screening unsightly areas, preserving the integrity of neighborhoods and enhancing pedestrian and vehicular traffic and safety. B. Application. A landscape plan and tree survey shall be required in conjunction with any application for a zoning certificate, a variance, a conditional use permit, a similar use determination, a subdivision plat, or a site plan and design review approval. Such landscape plan and tree survey shall include the following: i. The present location, size, and description of all existing major trees, with a designation of existing major trees sought to be removed. ii. he location, size and description of landscaping materials proposed to be placed on the lot in order to comply with this section. iii. The location and size of any structures presently on the lot, and those proposed to be placed on the lot. iv. The proposed location and description of screening to be placed on the lot in order to comply with this section. C. General Landscape Provisions. i. No zoning certificate, variance, conditional use permit, similar use determination, subdivision plat or site plan and design approval shall be granted until a landscape plan is approved in 144

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE accordance with this chapter. ii. No landscaped area shall be used for display and/or storage purposes. iii. The species, location and spacing of trees and shrubs planted in all public rights-of-way and on all sites shall be subject to approval by the Planning and Zoning Administrator. iv. No Certificate of Occupancy shall be granted until all conditions herein have been met; however, in the event landscaping cannot be completed due to weather conditions, or peculiar conditions related to the development of the subject property such as conditions related to phased development, the applicant shall provide financial security, in a form acceptable to the City, in the amount of one hundred twenty-five percent (125%) of the cost of materials and installation of all remaining landscaping to be completed and an estimate of such costs in order to be eligible for a Certificate of Occupancy. v. When phasing development upon a property, a proportionate share of landscaping acceptable to the City shall be installed and maintained with each phase based on the size of the proposed phase and shall be considered completed for the purposes of these regulations when such proportionate share of landscaping has been installed, unless special circumstances warrant the installation of a greater amount of landscaping with any phase. vi. The developer and/or property owner shall be responsible for the installation and maintenance of all landscaping, buffering, perimeter treatment and screening improvements in a healthy condition. This provision shall also apply to single-family and two-family dwellings. vii. Bare earth shall not be considered landscaping or a landscaped area for the purposes of meeting the landscape requirements herein. Land area shall be considered “covered” if it is used for growing grass, shrubs, trees, plants or flowers, or if covered by decorative rock, stone or wood chips, or otherwise landscaped as provided herein. This provision shall also apply to single-family and two-family dwellings. viii. These landscaping provisions are not intended to require multiple or overlapping setbacks, buffers and perimeter treatments. When more than one (1) such standard applies, that standard which results in the higher landscaping or buffering requirement shall apply. Buffering and perimeter treatments may be located within the required setbacks and may be counted toward required open space except not as usable open space. ix. Utility easements which conflict with required buffer yards, perimeter treatment, parkway or median standards may require an alternative design approach to address such conflicts. D. Tree Preservation. Unless exempted in accordance with this subsection, all existing major trees shall be preserved. The Building Inspector may approve the cutting down, removal or destruction of a major tree/trees when the tree or trees interferes with the proper development of the lot, provided that the lot is the subject of an application for approval of a zoning certificate, development plan approval or variance, such application is approved and one of the following applies: i. The tree or trees will be located within the public right of way. ii. The subject property cannot be arranged in a manner to avoid removal of the tree or trees at the same time permitting the desirable and logical development of the lot. iii. The tree/trees are located within the proposed driveway to service a single-family home, and such driveway cannot otherwise be relocated. 145

COMMON REGULATIONS iv. The tree is damaged or diseased or can be proven to be of poor quality. v. The tree/trees are an undesirable species in its present location. E. Tree Replacement. Each existing major tree removed in accordance with subsection (d) above shall be replaced with one (1) tree, having a minimum caliper of one and three-quarters inch (1 3/4”) as measured one foot (1’) above ground level. F. General Landscape Standards. MINIMUM PLANT SIZE PLANT TYPE Deciduous trees Ornamental trees Evergreen trees Shrubs PLANT SIZE Two inches (2") caliper, measured one foot (1’) above ground One and one half inches (1 1/2") caliper, measured one foot (1’) above ground Six feet (6’) in height Eighteen inches (18") in height or eighteen inches (18") spread, depending on growth characteristics i. The following standards shall ensure that landscaping is used to improve the aesthetic quality of a development or site in addition to providing a functional purpose and year-round interest and/or screening. ii. The size of landscape elements and materials shall meet minimum standards and be consistent with the size of the project and any existing streetscape. Minimum plant sizes are as follows: MAXIMUM USE OF SAME SPECIES NUMBER OF TREES ON SITE 10-19 20-39 40-59 Over 60 MAXIMUM % OF SAME SPECIES 50% 33% 25% 15% 146

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE iii. Landscaping in parking areas, driveway entrances and intersections shall be designed to meet the minimum clear sight triangle as defined in the Zoning Code. iv. Monoculture, or the extensive use of a single species of trees, shall be limited in order to minimize the potential for disease or pests to strike a particular species resulting in significant same-species loss. The following limits shall apply: v. Plant materials used in conformance with the provisions of this section shall conform to the specifications of the American Association of Nurserymen (AAN) for number one grade and shall have all wire and twine removed prior to planting. All trees shall be balled and burlapped or equivalent. Grass sod shall be clean and free of weeds and noxious pests or diseases. Plant materials which are known to be intolerant of the area in which they are proposed to be installed, or whose physical characteristics may be injurious to the public shall not be specified for use. vi. If any trees or other plant materials die or become diseased and must be removed, the property owner shall be responsible for replacing all materials that were removed. In the event that existing preserved trees die or become diseased and must be removed; the replacement shall be based on the tree credits Table 1105.07A. If trees or shrubs are removed for convenience purposes, the property owner shall be responsible for replacing all removed materials elsewhere on the site. If adequate space is not available on the site, the replacement shall occur at a location approved by the City. Upon issuance of a citation, corrective action shall be completed within sixty (60) days unless the Development Director or designee determines that weather constraints require one additional sixty (60) day period. Failure to meet the requirements of this section shall constitute a violation of this Zoning Code and the penalty requirements shall apply. vii. Trees and shrubs shall be planted so that at maturity they do not interfere with utility service lines and traffic safety. Trees planted near public sidewalks shall be installed in such a manner as to prevent physical damage to sidewalks, curbs, gutters, pedestrian ways, bike paths and other public improvements. A protective tree grate and vault shall be provided when trees are planted in paved areas such as plazas or sidewalks. This provision shall also apply to single-family and two-family dwellings. viii. When an applicant presents that the placement of all trees and shrubs as required in this section would create an impractical landscape effect, a portion of the trees and shrubs may be located in alternative locations on the same site, subject to approval by the Development Director or designee. ix. In no event shall a landscaped setback be less than six feet (6’) in width, nor shall the width of the landscaped setback be inadequate to allow for the installation and healthy growing condition for the required amount of trees or shrubs. x. In order to promote efficient irrigation and maintenance measures, berms shall not exceed a slope of three to one (3:1) and shall be graded to appear as smooth, rounded, naturalistic forms. xi. To insure that landscape materials do not constitute a driving hazard, a clear “sight triangle” shall be observed at all street and access drive intersections. In the case of a city street intersection, the sight triangle shall consist of the area between points twenty feet (20’) along both intersecting streets from their respective edge of pavements. Ground cover, perennials, shrubs and trees shall be permitted within the sight triangle provided that perennials and shrubs do not exceed a maximum height of eighteen inches (18”) and tree trunks shall be devoid of limbs to a height of eight feet (8’). 147

COMMON REGULATIONS G. Street Tree Requirements. It shall be required in all zones and districts that applicants plant trees along public streets of their development. Trees shall be planted in such manner, type, quantity and locations as approved by the Planning and Zoning Administrator or the Planning Commission in conjunction with the site plan and design review process, as defined by the following conditions, and that any undeveloped street or existing street with undeveloped frontage shall conform to these requirements at the time of the development. i. Trees planted shall be on the list of approved street trees maintained by the City of Reynoldsburg. ii.

A small tree shall be used when planting under or within ten (10) lateral feet of overhead utility wires. A small or medium tree shall be used when planting within ten to twenty (10-20) lateral feet of overhead utility wires. vii. At the time of platting, the developer shall develop a street tree plan that establishes the species and size of trees to be planted along the streets of the proposed subdivision. viii. The developers shall be required to maintain all trees for a period of one (1) year after any installation and replace any tree which fails to survive or does not exhibit normal growth characteristics of health and vigor within such one (1) year period. Upon completion of a street tree planting, the landscape contractor shall contact the Department of Development for a preliminary inspection. The one-year guarantee period shall begin after the approval of the Department of Development. A final inspection shall be made at the end of the guarantee period. All trees not exhibiting a healthy, vigorous growing condition, as determined by the city’s inspection, shall be promptly replaced at the expense of the developer. Upon replacement, the one-year guarantee period shall recommence for those materials having been replaced. ix. All street trees along any one street shall be of the same species and variety to promote a continuous landscape treatment. A change in variety will only be permitted at intersections and other logical beginning and ending points. x.

Grass or ground cover shall be planted on all portions of the required landscaping area not occupied by other landscape material. Such material fulfills required interior or perimeter landscaping. K. Screening and Landscaping for Service Structures. i. In order to properly screen service structures from the main building and neighboring lots, the following screening requirements shall apply: ii. Location of screening. Either a solid, opaque fence or wall or earth berm, with a continuous planting of evergreen plant material shall enclose any service structure on all sides, unless such structure must be frequently accessed, in which case screening on all but one (1) side is required. The average height of the screening fence or wall shall be one foot (1’) more than the height of the enclosed structure but shall not exceed the maximum permitted height of fences and walls of the District. iii. Mechanical equipment and service functions associated with a building shall, to the maximum extent feasible, be incorporated into the overall design theme of the building and the landscape so that these functions are out of view from public ways and adjacent properties while allowing convenient access. iv. Plant material required for screening of service structures shall not count towards the fulfillment of other landscape requirements in this section. No interior landscaping shall be required within an area screened for service structures. v. Curbs to protect plant material. Whenever plant material is placed around any trash disposal unit or waste collection unit which is emptied or removed mechanically on a regular basis, a curb to contain the placement of the container shall be provided adjacent to the plant material. The curbing shall be at least one foot (1’) from the material and shall be designed to prevent possible damage to the plant material when the container is moved or emptied. vi. Service structures shall be grouped together whenever possible. vii. The provisions of this section shall not apply to service structures located on lots with single 153

COMMON REGULATIONS family and two-family dwellings, except that any generator located within six feet (6’) of any lot line shall be screened in accordance with this section. L. Natural Preservation Zones. i. Applicability. Natural preservation zones are areas that protect both the aesthetic appearance and environmental significance including, but not limited to, woodlands, wetlands, ravines, flood plains, streams, lakes, ponds, and/or steep slopes and can provide effective buffers between different or same land uses. Such zones should be designated on the concerned property. It is the intent of this section to encourage the use of these preservation zones in new developments including single family subdivisions, multi family, commercial and industrial construction. It is the further intent of this section not to preclude and/or prevent development, but to protect and preserve environmentally significant areas by fostering the use of buffer zones that could be integrated within the development. Preservation zones shall be used in a manner to promote and protect the public safety, convenience, comfort, prosperity, and general welfare of the City. ii. Determination of Preservation Zones. 1. Environmentally significant areas shall be required to have a preservation zone(s). (The natural resources maps A and B in the Reynoldsburg Planning Guide are guides in determining the environmentally significant areas. These maps shall be a guide in determining areas that shall be required to have preservation zones.) 2. However, this shall not preclude the Planning and Zoning Administrator or the Planning Commission from recommending and/or approving preservation zones in other areas that are considered to be environmentally significant. In determining preservation zones, the Planning and Zoning Administrator or the Planning Commission determines that the area needs to be protected from development and which could serve as a buffer between different or same uses. iii. Approval of Preservation Zones. Preservation Zones shall be approved in accordance with the following procedures: 1. The Planning Commission shall have the authority to approve a preservation zone for a subdivision and/or a planned district. This approval shall occur during the preliminary plat stage and shall follow the procedures set out in Chapter 1111. The Planning and Zoning Administrator may recommend to the Planning Commission the location of a preservation zone. 2. Preservation zones shall become part of the final plat or final development plan for subdivisions by the Planning Commission and approved by Council. Preservation zones shall become part of the site plan that is part of the certificate of appropriateness approval. iv. Protection of Preservation Zones. 1. Before any activity, clearing, and/or construction begins, the entire preservation zone shall be enclosed with at least three foot (3’) high orange construction fencing to prevent any access to the area. Such fencing shall protect the root systems of vegetation within the preservation zone. The fencing can only be taken down for an individual lot when an occupancy permit has been issued for the structure on the concerned lot. The fencing shall remain on the undeveloped lots until occupancy permits are granted for each lot. 154

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE 2. Said preservation zone shall not be disturbed any time before, during, or after said construction except for necessary access as approved by the Planning and Zoning Administrator. 3. No permanent or temporary structure, building, or fence shall ever be placed upon, in, or under said preservation zone. 4. Utilities and roadways in preservation zones may only be installed consistent with an Environmental Plan and/or Mitigation Plan. 5. No development, clearing, thinning, construction, or work shall be performed in the preservation zone except for necessary construction as deemed necessary by the Planning and Zoning Administrator. If a preservation zone is disturbed at any time (including but not limited to utility construction and/or easement, building or grading construction) by the developer, contractor, subcontractor, house builder, property owner, or a representative, such disturbances that occur shall be restored to an approved condition. Diseased trees and/or diseased vegetation may be removed with the approval of the Planning and Zoning Administrator. Obnoxious weeds and/or brush of less than one inch (1”) caliper may be removed without destroying the integrity of the preservation zone. 6. No dirt, stones, wood, or debris shall be placed within the preservation zone. 7. Trees located in a preservation zone that have been pushed over, cut apart, blown over, or fallen due to aging and/or deterioration are the property owner’s responsibility to remove from the preservation zone. 8. A utility company servicing and/or installing utilities in the designated preservation zone shall also be subject to these restrictions. 9. These restrictions shall be printed on the final plat, the final development plan, and/or site plan. 10. Drainage shall not be changed in a manner that will damage the preservation zone. 11. The developer shall notify each property purchaser in the concerned subdivision and/or the development of the preservation zone requirements. Such notification shall be in writing and shall be submitted to the property purchaser at the time of closing. 12. The developer shall notify all contractors, utility companies, and/or cable companies doing work in the concerned subdivision of the preservation zone requirements. 155

COMMON REGULATIONS SECTION 1105.09 EXTERIOR LIGHTING A. Purpose and Applicability. The purpose of this section is to ensure that all exterior site and building lighting shall not affect the reasonable use and enjoyment of adjacent properties but provide minimum levels to enhance safety of individuals and property. Lighting standards shall also protect the safety and operation of vehicles on the public rights-of-way from levels of illumination that are emitted or reflected from light sources of an intensity sufficiently to constitute a safety hazard to vehicular movement. Lighting standards shall apply to all lots except those developed with single family or twofamily dwellings. B. Exterior Lighting Regulations. Exterior site lighting shall be designed, located, constructed and maintained to minimize light and reflected light trespass and spill over off the subject property. Glare shall be minimized from all light sources. i. The average horizontal illumination level on the ground shall not exceed three footcandles (3FC). The light level along a property line adjacent to a residentially-zoned or used property shall not exceed an average intensity of one-half footcandle (0.5FC). ii. The height of parking lot lighting shall not exceed twenty feet (20’) above grade and shall direct light downward, i.e. cut-off type fixtures. In conjunction with a major site plan review, the Planning Commission may require a lower standard based upon specific characteristics of the site. iii. The color of parking lot lighting poles and other lighting infrastructure shall match or complement the colors of the building’s architecture, as approved by the Planning Commission. iv. For pedestrian areas, decorative low light fixtures shall be used and the height of the fixture shall not exceed fourteen feet (14’) above grade. v. Exterior building illumination shall be from concealed sources. Strobe or flashing lights and exposed neon lights are not permitted. Lighting fixtures shall not generate excessive light levels, cause glare, or direct light beyond the facades onto neighboring property, streets, or the night sky. The maximum illumination of any vertical surface or angular roof surface shall not exceed four footcandles (4FC). vi. Security lighting shall be full, cut-off type fixtures, shielded and aimed so that illumination is directed to the designated areas with the lowest possible illumination level to effectively allow surveillance. vii. Lighting fixtures used to illuminate the area below a freestanding canopy shall be recessed so that the lens cover is recessed or flush with the bottom surface (ceiling) of the canopy. However, indirect lighting may be used where a shielded source of light is beamed upward and then reflected down from the underside of the canopy. 156

E. When the Planning and Zoning Administrator determines that an application for a zoning certificate does not comply with the provisions or intent of this Code, or that an application does not provide sufficient information to determine compliance with this Code, then the Planning and Zoning Administrator shall deny the application and shall not issue a zoning certificate. F. The Planning and Zoning Administrator may refer zoning certificates to the BZBA for review. G. Within fourteen (14) days of the Planning and Zoning Administrator’s denial of a zoning certificate, the applicant may file a written appeal with the BZBA.

The provisions set forth hereunder shall apply to the review and grant of variances under this Code. B. An applicant seeking a variance shall submit a written request for variance on forms provided by the Planning Zoning Administrator together with the applicable fee. In addition to information relating to the subject property and the applicant, the request for a variance shall include the following information: i. A description of the nature of the variance requested and a statement demonstrating the extent to which the requested variance conforms to the standards for variance in this Code; ii. a statement of hardship; and iii. such other information and exhibits as may be appropriate to establish the facts of the appeal and the grounds for relief. C. Before approving or denying a request, the BZBA shall hold at least one public hearing on the matter. The BZBA shall cause notice of the hearing to be made to the public by seven (7) days advance publication, in a newspaper of general circulation in the City, of the place, time, date and the nature of the variance applied for. The BZBA shall also cause the subject property to be posted with a notice of hearing at least seven (7) days prior to the day of the hearing. The notice of hearing shall state thereon the nature of the request and the time and place of the public hearing. D. No variance from the strict application of the provisions of this Code shall be granted unless the BZBA makes specific findings of fact, based on the evidence presented to it, which support conclusions that the variance conforms to the following standards: i. The variance is in accord with the general purpose and intent of the regulations imposed by this Code in the district in which it is located, and shall not be injurious to the area or otherwise detrimental to the public welfare. 190

REYNOLDSBURG ZONING CODE ii. The variance will not permit the establishment of any use which is not otherwise listed as a permitted use or a conditional use in the zone or district in which the subject property is situated. iii. There exist special circumstances or conditions, fully described in the findings, applicable to the land or structures for which the variance is sought, which are peculiar to such land or structures and which do not apply generally to land or structures in the area, and which are such that the strict application of the provisions of this Code would deprive the property owner of the reasonable use of such land or structures. There must be a deprivation of the beneficial use of land, as opposed to mere loss in value as justification for the variance. iv. There is proof of hardship or practical difficulty created by the strict application of this Code, beyond simply a showing that greater profit will result if the variance is granted. Economic hardship is not grounds for the variance. Furthermore, the hardship complained of is not selfcreated nor is it established on this basis by one who purchased with or without knowledge of the restrictions. The hardship results from the application of this Code and is suffered directly by the property in question. v. The variance is necessary for the reasonable use of the land or building, and the variance as granted is the minimum variance that will accomplish this purpose. vi. The variance will not impair an adequate supply of light and air to adjacent property, substantially increase the congestion in the public streets, increase the danger of fire, endanger the public safety, or substantially diminish or impair property values of the adjacent area. vii. The variance will not confer on the property owner any special privilege that is unduly denied by this Code to other land, structures, or buildings in the same district. viii. No nonconforming use of neighboring land or structures in the same district and no permitted or nonconforming use of land or structures in other districts are considered as grounds for approval of the variance. ix. The variance is not a matter of convenience when other remedies are available within the provisions of this Code. E. In granting any variance, the BZBA shall establish such conditions as are necessary to secure substantially the objectives of this Code. Any violation of such conditions and safeguards, when they have been made a part of the terms under which the variance has been granted, shall be deemed a violation of this Code. F. No action of the BZBA granting a variance shall be valid for a period longer than twelve (12) months from the date of such action unless the zoning certificate is obtained within such period, and the erection or alteration of a structure is started or the use is commenced within such period, provided however, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, such twelve (12) month period may be extended by the Planning and Zoning Administrator upon the demonstration by the applicant that any delay in the commencement of the erection or alteration of a structure is the result of factors beyond the control of the applicant, in which case, the Planning and Zoning Administrator may elect to grant an extension of up to six (6) months. G. The BZBA shall not accept a new application for a variance that has been previously denied within twelve (12) months of denial. 191

The conditional use is operated in a manner which violates any condition of the approval. I. The Planning and Zoning Administrator shall review all approved conditional use permit applications six (6) months after final action to determine if the approved use is in operation and otherwise in compliance with all conditions of approval. Upon such six (6) month review the Planning Zoning Administrator shall proceed in accordance with the circumstances outlined below: i. If the Planning and Zoning Administrator finds the conditional use to be in operation and in compliance with the conditions of approval, the Planning and Zoning Administrator shall notify the BZBA of such compliance. ii. If the Planning and Zoning Administrator finds that construction has not begun, the Planning and Zoning Administrator shall record that information for an additional six (6) month review, and shall notify the BZBA of such inaction. iii. If the Planning and Zoning Administrator finds a use in an existing structure or building not to be in operation, the permit and zoning certificate shall be deemed revoked and the Planning and Zoning Administrator shall notify the applicant of such revocation as well as the BZBA. Upon such revocation, the applicant shall have the right to appeal that decision of the Planning and Zoning Administrator to the BZBA and request the BZBA allow up to one (1) additional six (6) month period to begin operation following the administrative appeal procedure.
