The overall design shall integrate neighborhood and site characteristics into a compatible expression of building mass, scale, color and circulation. (2) Minimalization of Impacts. Spatial designs should minimize the impacts of traffic, noise, reflected light, debris, and other undesirable effects of development upon abutting properties and the neighborhood as a whole. (3) Architectural Innovation. Developers should seek to provide innovative design of structures by varying vertical planes of building facades and/or by varying the elevation of rooflines. (4) Loading/Refuse Area. Design of loading and refuse areas should be sensitive to aesthetic concerns and provide for screening compatible with abutting properties. When possible, such loading and refuse areas should be located so as not to be visible from public roads. (5) Parking Lots. Parking lots and driveways shall be designed to safely and effectively circulate vehicles throughout the site. When appropriate, cross-easements should be provided between adjoining properties to allow for circulation of vehicles. (6) Curb Cuts.

Larger developments should include designs which allow for centralized open space containing detention/retention ponds, passive recreation areas, bike/pedestrian paths, and other amenities which will serve the development. (10) Detention/Retention Ponds. When appropriate, detention and retention ponds should be designed to provide for shared storage between properties. Ideally, such shared storage should include the greatest land area possible. (11) Lighting. On-site lighting standards shall be compatible with architectural and spatial designs, and shall provide for safe illumination of the site for vehicles and pedestrians.
