CHAPTER 24A. SPECIFIC PLANS.
Article 1. General Provisions.
Sec. 24A-1-30. Intent.
Pursuant to state law, after the city council has adopted a general plan,
the community development department may, or if so directed by the city council
shall, prepare specific plans for the systematic implementation of the general
plan for all or part of the area covered by the general plan. Specific plans
shall be utilized to implement the policy and intent of the general plan and
shall not be used to circumvent the general plan process in which general
development policy is determined. The preparation and processing of specific
plans shall be a collaborative effort. As such, city, applicant and the other
agencies shall strive to create a plan that conforms to the general plan goals
This chapter is intended to apply to areas designated
“planned neighborhood” in the general plan. As an integral part of
the specific plan process set forth in this chapter, applicants shall comply
with all infrastructure master plans adopted or being considered by the city
pursuant to the general plan, including but not limited to water, sewer, storm
drainage, traffic and parks.
In the event there is a discrepancy between
standards adopted within a specific plan and comparable regulations of the city
zoning ordinance, the standards and regulations made part of the specific plan
shall prevail. (Ord. No. 1295, (part).)
