Tract, Area, Bulk, Height and Buffer Requirements (Trout Creek Stormwater Overlay District)
1. Tract, area, bulk, height and buffer requirements.
A. Building and impervious coverage.
(1) The coverage ratios of the underlying zoning district shall apply. However, when a contiguous property covers more than one nonresidential underlying zoning district, the applicant may determine permitted impervious and building coverage on a tract-wide basis by combining the allowable building and impervious coverage ratios of the underlying nonresidential zoning districts.
(2) For the purpose of calculating allowable building and impervious coverage, areas with public stormwater improvements may be included in lot area.
(3) For single-family attached dwellings, 200 square feet of additional impervious coverage per dwelling unit for residential decks, patios or other outside paving shall be planned for and accommodated in the initial stormwater management system and may be added after the initial occupancy of the home.
B. Residential zoning districts.
(1) Density. Density may be increased up to 2.3 times the rate permitted in the underlying zoning district. The rate permitted in the underlying zoning district shall be demonstrated through the submission of a by-right plan that complies with the requirements of that underlying zoning district.
C. Parking.
The parking regulations of § 208-103: Off-street parking and loading requirements shall apply, with the following exceptions.
(1) Office.
(a) There shall be at least one parking space for each 250 square feet of gross floor area or fraction thereof.
(b) Shared parking is permitted subject to the following requirements:
[1] Provide a parking demand analysis for each use that exceeds 2,400 square feet of gross floor area for approval by the Township Engineer that demonstrates adequate parking will be provided for the uses on site during peak hours. The analysis should generally be consistent with the published recommendations of the Institute of Traffic Engineers (ITE). Data collected from similar or comparable uses to the proposed use also may be submitted for review. For any change of use involving shared parking, a new parking demand analysis shall be submitted as determined necessary by the Zoning Officer.
[2] Demonstrate that the shared parking shall be located no further than 500 feet from the entrance to the buildings and uses they are intended to serve.
[3] Provide a written, legally binding agreement among the owners of record, their tenants and those with which parking facilities are shared for review and approval by the Township.
