(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)


1161.02 FINDINGS OF COMMISSION.
In accepting such a plan for review, the Planning Commission must be satisfied that the proponents of the development project are financially able to carry out the project; that they intended to start construction within one year of the approval by Council of the project or of the effective date of any necessary change in zoning, whichever is later; and that they intend to complete the development within a reasonable time as determined by the Commission.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)

It shall be the duty of the Planning Commission to investigate and ascertain whether the location, size and other characteristics of the site in the proposed plan comply with the following conditions:

(c) That the project is at a location where traffic congestion does not exist at present on the streets to be utilized in conjunction therewith, and where such congestion will not likely be created as a result of the project;

(d) That the plan of the project provides for integrated and harmonious design of buildings and for adequate and properly arranged facilities for internal traffic circulation, off-street parking and loading, landscaping and such other features and facilities as may be necessary to make the project attractive and efficient from the standpoint of the developer, as well as from the standpoint of the adjoining or surrounding, existing or potential developments.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)
