Printed: 9/21/2023 5:34:59 PM
1. The City Planning Commission may recommend and the City Council may impose such conditions and restrictions upon the establishment, location, construction, maintenance, and operation of the planned development as deemed necessary for the protection of the public health, safety, and welfare.
2. Any conditions imposed shall be set forth in the ordinance approving the planned development and incorporated into or noted on the development plan for final approval. The applicant shall submit the revised development plan incorporating all conditions within one (1) year of adoption of the planned development ordinance by the City Council. The Executive Director of the City Planning Commission shall verify that the development plan incorporates all conditions set forth in the ordinance authorizing the planned development, and shall sign the plan to indicate final plan approval.
3. The applicant shall record the signed development plan in the Office of the Clerk of the Civil District Court for the Parish of Orleans within thirty (30) days of the date of final approval shall submit evidence of such recordation to the Executive Director of the City Planning Commission. If the applicant fails to record the signed development plan within this period, the ordinance approving the planned development is deemed null. No permits or licenses for the conditional use may be issued until the development plan has been recorded and evidence of the recording has been provided to the Executive Director of the City Planning Commission. The City Planning Commission shall maintain a record of such approved planned development, the development plans, and any conditions attached thereto.
4. The City Council may waive or modify specific zoning standards otherwise applicable to the planned development by this Ordinance to secure the general objectives of this section, provided, however, that any such variance shall be based upon a finding that the case meets the approval standards of Section 4.6.F. However, the City Council cannot waive or modify any approval standards of this section.
