E. Land Allocation by Transect Zone: When composing the TND Master Plan, the form-based districts in Section 2.2.1 {} shall be used as sub-districts and so designated on the zoning map within the ranges noted below (ranges are noted in % of gross land area). 1. UR: 30-80% 2. RMX: 10-30% 3. NMX: 10-30% 4. Civic Structures: A minimum of 2% of the land area shall be reserved for the construction of civic structures (community buildings, religious institutions, etc.) and their support facilities (parking areas, etc.). Such sites shall be in prominent locations that are centralized to the neighborhood, accessible to the greater community, and help to visually anchor important vistas. The required reservation does not include recreational open space such as parks, playgrounds, greenways, or conserved lands.


Specific Development Standards 1. Neighborhood Design: The entire land area of the TND shall be divided into blocks, streets, lots, and open space areas. 2. Land Use Relationships: Similar land use categories shall generally front across streets. Dissimilar categories shall abut at rear lot lines. Corner lots which front on streets of dissimilar use shall be set back the same as the adjacent use with the lesser setback. 3. Open Space: No portion of the TND shall be further than ¼ mile from a publicly accessible (public or privately maintained with a public access easement) recreational open space as defined in Chapter 7 including recreational open space outside of the TND boundaries. Recreational Open Space shall be provided in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 7. 4. Dimensional Standards and Building Types: The Dimensional Standards and Building Types shall be established in accordance with the neighborhood design, but within 200 feet of all property boundaries (not across streets) the lot widths and depths and building types shall be generally consistent with adjacent zoning district(s) of a lower development intensity/density.

2.6. Conditional Districts (Cd) Conditional Districts are districts with conditions voluntarily added by the applicant and approved in a legislative procedure by the Board of Commissioners in accordance with NC General Statutes via the conditional zoning process outlined in Chapter 15. Conditional Districts provide for orderly and flexible development under the general policies of this ordinance without the constraints of some of the prescribed standards guiding by-right development. Because Conditional District developments are constructed in a comprehensive manner, they establish their own building, street, block, and lot pattern which may be unique from other surrounding blocks or neighborhoods. Conditional zoning may be used in any district but is not intended to relieve hardships that would otherwise be handled using a variance procedure.

2.6.1. Standards For Conditional Districts Within a Conditional District (CD), petitioners may place additional requirements or standards onto themselves and their property or ask that certain uses identified in the specific zoning category or provisions in Chapters 2- 12 be decreased. It shall be the Board of Commissioners’ final decision to grant approval or denial of the conditional zoning request in light of the revised development
