Section 3.1 PD Concept Plan The PD Concept Plan for each PD District consists of drawings generally labeled as follows: "I'D Concept Plan - Planning Area"; "PD Concept Plan - Land Uses"; "PD Concept Plan - Open Space & Trail System"; and "PD Concept Plan - Thoroughfares". The PD District for Circle T Planning Area I - East Residential includes two development alternatives (at the option of the owner); one alternative with golf and one without golf. Except as otherwise provided in the PD Ordinances or this PD Supplement, the graphic depictions contained on the PD Concept Plans are "regulatory" standards, and amendments to the PD Concept Plans shall be considered zoning changes. Although the requirement for public hike, bike, and equestrian trails (if shown on a PD Concept Plan) is regulatory and cannot be deleted without a zoning change, the exact location of such trails is not regulatory and may be changed by the Board without a zoning change. In addition, (i) the boundary of any concept plan area may be adjusted to the extent necessary to eliminate strips or gores between such area and adjacent concept plan areas and (ii) the size of any sub -area shown on a PD Concept Plan may be increased or decreased by the Board without a zoning change so long as the size does not change by more than five percent (5%). Changes in trail location or the area within a PD District (or any sub -area thereof) shall be approved by the Board as part of a PD site plan. A. PD Concept Plan - Planning Area The drawings labeled "PD Concept Plan - Planning Area" identify the general boundaries of the PD Districts. The exact boundaries, however, are shown on the metes and bounds description adopted by the Board as part of each PD Ordinance. Any information shown on the drawings that is outside the boundaries of the PD District is not part of the PD Concept Plans or PD Ordinances and does not bind or otherwise affect development within the PD Districts. B. PD Concept Plan - Land Uses The drawings labeled "PD Concept Plan - Land Uses" identify general land use categories that are permitted within the PD Districts and within the sub -areas designated thereon, together with an estimate of the size of each sub -area. For non-residential sub -areas, the drawings also indicate the applicable floor area ratios and an estimate of total floor area. The estimate of total floor area, however, is provided for informational purposes only and is not a "regulatory" standard, and to the August 10, 1998 Article 1. General Provisions Circle T PD Supplement Page I ORDINANCE 007510A0019:0359104.11 extent, if any, that the actual total floor area differs from the estimate, such difference shall not require an amendment to the PD Concept Plan. For single-family detached sub -areas, the drawings identify minimum lot sizes. For all other residential sub -areas, the drawings also identify the total number of residential dwelling units that are allowed (which total number of dwelling units is a "regulatory" standard and cannot be changed without a zoning change). These drawings also identify open space areas; however, open space is discussed in greater detail in Subsection C below (and in the event of any conflict, the terms, provisions, and intent of Subsection C shall control). Any information shown on these drawings that is outside the identified boundaries of the PD Districts is not part of the PD Concept Plans or PD Ordinances and does not bind or otherwise affect development within the PD Districts. To the extent, if any, that these drawings illustrate the detailed layout of golf course features (such as tee boxes, fair -ways, water features, or greens) or possible building "footprints", such detailed illustrations are not considered part of the PD Concept Plans or PD Ordinances, and they do not bind or otherwise affect development within the PD Districts. C. PD Concept Plan - Open Space & Trail System The drawings labeled "PD Concept Plan - Open Space & Trail System" identify (i) public open space; (ii) private -oublk an private gollf, These drawings also identify the general open space; and (1-11) 11 %A 11Y I locations of public hike and bike trails and public equestrian trails, which trails constitute the only trails that are required within the PD Districts. Any information shown on these drawings that is outsides the boundaries of the PD Districts is not part of the PD Concept Plans or PD Ordinances and does not bind or otherwise affect development within the PD Districts. 1. Public Open Space The area within each PD District that is designated as public open space will be made available for public use by residents of the Town. The portion of such open space designated for parks shall be dedicated to the Town in fee and the portion adjacent to Lake Turner by easement. The remainder of such open space may (at the option of the owner) (i) be dedicated in fee or by easement (ii) to the Town, a public improvement district, a private property owners association, or any other entity approved by the Board. Access to such areas shall be controlled by ordinance (including closing of such areas from late night until early morning). Underground public and private utilities may be located in such areas. Owners of land adjacent to such areas may irrigate, mow, and otherwise maintain such areas (including all improvements located therein). After dedication to the Town, the Town shall maintain such areas (including all improvements located therein). The dedication of such areas shall occur as part of the Town's subdivision approval process. Unless approved by the Board, public open space shall not be included as part of any platted lot. It is contemplated, however, that (subject to Board approval as part of the PD site plan approval process) private development may occur up to the water's edge around portions of Lake Turner; in which case the land adjacent to the lake that is required for such development shall not be required as public open space. If such private August 10, 1998 Article 1. General Provisions Circle T PD Supplement Page 2 ORDINANCE 007510.00019:0359104.11 development occurs, a continuous public open space/hike and bike trail system will be provided. 2. Private Open Space The area within each PD District that is designated as private open space will be made available for use as determined by the owners thereof. Such use may, at the option of such owners, include public use by the residents of the Town. Such use may also provide connectivity between public and private open space areas. All single family subdivisions (other than those adjacent to golf courses) shall provide at least one access point to the hike and bike trails shown on the PD Concept Plans. The reservation of areas as private open space shall occur as part of the Town's subdivision approval process. Private open space may be included as part of any platted lot. 3> Public Golf The area within each PD District that is designated as public golf will be developed as a golf course (including a clubhouse and accessory uses) that will allow public play. Public golf may be included as part of any platted lot. 4. Private Golf The area within each PD District designated as private golf will be developed as a golf course (including a clubhouse and accessory uses) that may restrict play. Private golf may be included as part of any platted lot. a. The area within each PD District designated as hike and bike trails will be made available for public use by the residents of the Town. Such areas shall be dedicated to the Town in fee. Access to such areas shall be controlled by ordinance (including closing of such areas from late night until early morning). Underground public and private utilities may be located in such areas. Owners of land adjacent to such areas may irrigate, mow, and otherwise maintain such areas (including all improvements located therein). After dedication to the Town, the Town shall maintain such areas (including all improvements located therein). The dedication of such areas shall occur as part of the Town's subdivision approval process. Unless approved by the Board, hike and bike trails shall not be included as part of any platted lot. b. The hike and bike trails within each PD District (which are not drawn to scale on the drawings) located next to parks, lakes, ponds, golf, roads, drainage, or other areas of significant open space shall have a minimum width of 15 feet; all other hike and bike trails (including those combined with equestrian trails) shall have a minimum width of 20 feet. Any owner who is required to dedicate property for a portion of the hike and bike trail shall also be required to do one of the following, at the option of the owner: (i) construct such portion of the trail within six months after receiving a certificate of occupancy (which obligation shall August 10, 1998 Article 1. General Provisions Circle T PD Supplement Page 3 ORDINANCE 007510.00019:0359104.11 be secured prior to final plat approval by a performance bond, cash deposit, letter of credit, pledge of government securities, or other security acceptable to the Board); or (ii) deposit with the Town an amount (in the form of a performance bond, cash, letter of credit, pledge of government securities, or other security acceptable to the Board) sufficient to construct such portion of the trail; which deposit shall relieve the owner of any further obligation with respect to such construction. The Town may only use the deposit to construct portions of the trail within the designated PD District, and if the deposit is not used for such purposes within ten (10) years, it shall be returned to the then -current owner of the land. C. The following standards shall apply to the design and construction of all public hike and bike trails: 1. The minimum width shall be eight feet, unless the Town secures a funding grant for the construction of the public hike and bike trails in which case the trail shall be 12 feet. 1) A+414 e e✓ '­ -.;Ic pf t � T-M,lion of the Tovvrn (except as provid eld --1- 11 " 'r—_ may be constructed of crushed granite (with a four inch ribbon curb), concrete, asphalt, or other materials approved by the Commission as part of PD site plan approval. 3. In areas subject to erosion, trails shall be constructed of concrete. 4. Where trails cross streams, creeks, or other permanent water courses, construction shall include (at the option of the Commission, as part of PD site plan approval) a bridge, culvert, or other design alternative that will convey base stream flow under the trail. 5. The minimum design speed for primary hike and bike trails shall meet the standards of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials ("AASHTO"). 6. Lighting of trails shall not be required unless needed for safety reasons. 7. Railings may be constructed of wood, steel, concrete, composite materials, or other materials approved by the Board and shall meet AASHTO standards. 8. Water fountains are only required (at one -mile intervals) for trails located in public parks. August 10, 1998 Article I. General Provisions Circle T PD Supplement Page 4 ORDINANCE 007510.00019:0359104.11 9. The intersections of trails and thoroughfares shown on the PD Concept Plans shall be grade -separated only where such grade separation is shown on a PD Concept Plan. d. At such time as 75% of the hike and bike trails within each PD District have been constructed (or security provided for such construction), the remainder of the property required for the trail shall be dedicated and the remainder of the trails shall be constructed (or a deposit made for such construction as provided above); and until such property dedication and construction (or deposit therefor) has occurred, the Town, at the option of the Board, may deny the issuance of any further certificates of occupancy within the designated PD District. The Town may only use the deposit to complete construction of the trails within the respective PD District, and if the deposit is not used for such purposes within ten (10) years, it shall be returned to the then -owner of the property. 111. Equestrian Trails a. The area within each PD District designated as equestrian trails will be made available for public use by the residents of the Town. Such areas may be dedicated to the Town in fee or by easement. Access to such areas shall be controlled by ordinance (including closing of such areas from late night until early morning). Underground public and private utilities may be located in such areas. Owners of land adjacent to such areas may irrigate, mow, and otherwise maintain such areas (including all improvements located therein). After dedication to the Town, the Town shall maintain such areas (including all improvements located therein). The dedication of such areas shall occur as part of the Town's subdivision approval process. Equestrian trails dedicated by easement may be included as part of any single family platted lot; however, they may not be included as part of any other platted lot unless approved by the Board. b. The equestrian trails within each PD District (which are not shown to scale on the drawing) shall have a minimum width of 20 feet (even if combined with hike and bike trails). Owners who are required to dedicate property for a portion of the equestrian trail shall not, however, have any obligation to construct the trails. C. At such time as 75% of the equestrian trails within the respective PD District have been constructed, the remainder of the property required for the trail shall be dedicated; and until such dedication has occurred, the Town, at the option of the Board, may deny the issuance of any further certificates of occupancy within the respective PD District. August 10, 1998 Article I. General Provisions Circle T PD Supplement Page 5 ORDINANCE 007510.00019:0359104.11 D. PD Concept Plan - Thoroughfares The drawings labeled "PD Concept Plan Thoroughfares" identify thoroughfares that are consistent with the Town's Thoroughfare Plan. E. TIA Conditions to Concept Plan Approval Subsection 2.1.E ("Traffic Impact Analysis") of Article XI of the UDC authorizes the Board to condition the density or intensity of uses or the timing of development within a PD District based upon the existence of a supporting roadway network adequate to accommodate the traffic expected to be generated. Pursuant to such authority, the Board has approved the following conditions: 1. The original traffic impact analysis approved by the Board when the PD Districts were established shall be updated every five years (or earlier if requested by the Town's Traffic Engineer at the time of any amendment to any PD Concept Plan that materially increases peak -hour trip generation for the build -out of the Circle T Ranch beyond the peak -hour trips estimated by the most recent traffic impact analysis). 2, At the time 01 nRp-e-cific site i ' '.-aplasubmttafor Town apprv1l., an updated Traffic Impact Analysis must be conducted and submitted in order to determine all site -related driveway/access intersection requirements. If any site driveway or direct access intersections are affected by subject site -related traffic to the extent that the Level of Service (LOS) is reduced below "C" (as defined in the Highway Capacity Manual published by the Transportation Research Board of the National Research Council) (or below such lesser LOS as the Town Engineer and Board may approve), it will be the responsibility of the site developer to fund the necessary mitigation measures to achieve the required LOS. 3. If any off-site intersections are affected by subject site -related traffic to the extent that the LOS is reduced below "C" (or below such lesser LOS as the Town Engineer and Board may approve), it will be the responsibility of the site developer to fund the necessary mitigation measures to the required LOS. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the developer is not responsible for mitigating the impacts on off-site intersections that result from non -site traffic. 4. If by nationally accepted standards, a traffic signal is warranted at the intersection of public roadway and a site driveway or access point, the site developer will be responsible for the cost of installing the traffic signal to Town standards. Section 3®2 "Informational" Plans There are also attached to this PD Supplement for information purposes only: (i) a drawing labeled "Circle T Ranch - Planning Areas" which illustrates the general boundaries of the "planning areas" that constitute the Circle T Ranch; (ii) a drawing labeled "Circle T Ranch - Land Uses" which illustrates the general land use categories for all the "planning areas" of the Circle T Ranch; and (iii) a drawing labeled "Circle T Ranch - August 10, 1998 Article I.

A preliminary drainage study of the area showing the size and location of each existing and proposed drainage way and retention or detention area. The study shall be prepared by a professional engineer licensed in the State of Texas and experienced in the study of drainage issues. The preliminary drainage study shall (i) contain a topographical map of the area proposed for development to a scale not smaller than I inch = 200 feet; (ii) generally describe how the proposed development will comply with the drainage design policies set forth below; (iii) include all information deemed necessary by the preparing engineer to support his or her determination that the proposed development will comply with the drainage design policies; and (iv) include all information reasonably requested by the Town Engineer to support his or her review of the preliminary drainage study. The purposes of the drainage design policies are to prevent flooding of adjacent properties owned by third parties and to regulate water surface elevations and peak discharges. Development within the PD District shall not produce any increase in the water surface ci or ke WA LM I �"-_ L - �) - . . I levati �' 1, ither upstream or r1owns* eam All to a 5 -year, 1 0 -year, 50 -year, or 100 -year storm. If the discharge from the area proposed for development would increase the water surface elevation above predevelopment conditions on any property owned by third parties due to any of such storms, then such peak discharge must be regulated to the extent necessary to eliminate the increased water surface elevation. The regulation of discharges to eliminate such increases may be achieved using either on-site or off-site stormwater management facilities (such as detention areas, retention areas, and infiltration and sedimentation ponds). b. The proposed method of providing water and sewer service. C. An updated traffic impact analysis. The purpose of the updated analysis is to determine whether the traffic estimated to be generated by the development shown on the proposed PD site plan will necessitate specific on-site or adjacent traffic improvements (e.g., turn lanes, stacking lanes, signalization, etc.) and to determine whether the conditions (as set forth in subsection 4.1.E above) attached to the PD Concept Plan based on the original traffic impact analysis have been met. 9. A list of the development standards, if any (whether in the PD Ordinance or in the then -existing ordinances, rules, or regulations of the Town that apply to development within the PD District), for which the applicant is seeking a variance by the Board as part of the PD site plan approval process; and 10. If Board approval of any height increase is being requested, the applicant shall prepare (at the request of the Town Planner) a view analysis of the impact of August 10, 1998 Article I. General Provisions Circle T PD Supplement Page 10 ORDINANCE 007510.00019:0359104.11 such requested variance on adjacent residential areas of the Town. C. Commission Decision The Commission, after notice and public hearing in accordance with the Town's UDC procedures, shall approve, approve subject to conditions, or deny each PD site plan. D. Approval Criteria The Commission, in approving, conditionally approving, or denying a PD site plan, shall consider the following criteria: 1. The plan complies with the applicable PD Concept Plan and PD Ordinance, including express conditions attached to the PD Concept Plan or PD Ordinance; 2. The plan complies with the standards and conditions of the Town's Unified Development Code and of other ordinances, rules and regulations of the Town (to the extent that such standards and conditions are applicable to development within the PD District); 3. The traffic estimated to be generated by the plan is generally consistent with the original, Board approved traffic impact analysis (as updated in accordance with Subsection 4.1.E above); 4. The plan includes the necessary on-site or adjacent traffic improvements to accommodate traffic generated by the plan (e.g., turn lanes, stacking lanes, signalization, etc.); 5. The preliminary drainage study for the plan indicates that the proposed development can be achieved without increasing the upstream or downstream water surface elevation on property owned by third parties and that detention and drainage areas can be improved in a natural manner approved by the Board and consistent with existing physical conditions of similar areas within the applicable PD District; and 6. Landscaping for the Town Edge Landscape Zone (as hereinafter defined) promotes continuity and unity consistent with the landscape plan for the development and encourages views to public open space and public landmarks. E. Conditions The Commission, or the Board on appeal, may establish such conditions to the approval of a PD site plan as are reasonably necessary to assure that the approval criteria are met. F. Appeal from Commission Action If the Commission approves a PD site plan with conditions or if it disapproves a PD site plan, the applicant may appeal the decision to the Board by filing a written request with the Town Secretary within ten (10) days after the Commission's decision.

Variances If the applicant requests a variance from any PD Ordinance standards or other requirements of the Applicable Town Ordinances (as defined in the PD Ordinances), the variance request will be forwarded to the Board with the Commission's recommendation for decision. Except as otherwise provided by the PD Ordinances or this PD Supplement, the procedures and criteria for approval shall be those applicable to variances under the UDC. H. Amendment PD site plans are not considered part of a PD Ordinance. Except as otherwise provided in this Subsection, any amendment to an approved PD site plan must be approved by the Commission. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, "minor modifications" to any PD site plan may be approved by the Town Planner. If the Town Planner believes that a request for a minor modification entails a significant change in a PD site plan, he may refer the request to the Commission for determination. A "minor modification" to a PD site plan is defined as any modification that does not: 1. alter the basic relationship of proposed development to adjacent property; 2. chati-ae the uses pennitted- a 4 9 August 10, 1.998 ORDINANCE increase the maximum density, floor area, or height; decrease the amount of off-street parking, unless parking remains sufficient in number and conforms to ordinance requirements; or reduce the minimum yards or setbacks.

Parking lot edges may facilitate the grading and terracing of parking lots on a site. 3. Location of Required Landscape Area Required landscape area shall occur entirely within the parking lot and parking lot edge. M= 1. General Required landscape areas may take the form of parking lot edges, spot islands or linear islands, depending on site design and the preservation of natural site features. All islands within parking lots shall occur in one of two general forms: spot islands or linear islands. All required landscape areas shall: a) be planted with living plant materials; b) allow for pedestrian walking surfaces across them to provide improved pedestrian circulation across the parking lots (except those spot islands described in CA.(b) below); and. C) have a minimum of one (1) tree located in each island. Twenty-five percent (25%) of all spot islands shall include a row of small shrubs the length of the spot island (except those spot islands described in CA.(b) below) and twenty-five percent (25%) of all spot islands shall be planted with ground cover, resulting in fifty percent (50%) of all spot islands planted with either small shrubs or ground cover. 2. Tree Density There shall be a minimum of one (1) tree per 2.5 parking spaces in all parking areas. These trees may be planted anywhere within the parking lot (including spot islands and linear islands) or within the parking lot edge. No parking space may be greater than fifteen (15) feet from a tree (measured from the nearest curb line of the island containing the tree to the nearest point on the edge of the parking space). 3. Tree Size At least 60% of the trees shall be large trees, and the remainder shall be small trees. 4. Spot Islands Spot islands shall be (a) a minimum of six (6) feet wide by eighteen (18) feet long when abutting the Parking Lot Edge, (b) a minimum of five (5) feet wide by five (5) feet long [limited to 15% of all spot islands in alternative 1 (see Figure 26A) and 25% of all spot islands in alternatives 2, 3 and August 10, 1998 Article 111.

Spot islands shall be measured from inside curb to inside curb. The location of spot islands shall recognize convenient pedestrian circulation routes and walks. 5. Linear Islands Linear islands shall be not less than five feet in width and designed as long and narrow planted strips, breaking larger lots into smaller linear parking cells. Linear islands are appropriate on sites of steeper terrain, running parallel with existing topographic contours, to preserve existing trees and better integrate existing rural topography. 6. Existing Trees and Natural Features Notwithstanding the provisions of set forth in Sections 3.5(C)(4) and 3.5(C)(5) above, the location of all landscaped islands should be adjusted to accommodate existing trees or other natural features, provided that the total landscape area requirements are met. Section 3.6 Screening of Parking A. General It is the intent of this subsection to screen all off-street parking areas from public roadways and from publicly dedicated open space. The screen shall be a minimum of thirty-six (36) inches in height and shall be achieved through one of the following methods: 1. A planting screen; or 2. A berm; or 3. A combination of the above; or 4. Otherwise as shown on an approved PD site plan. B. Parking Lot Edge Screening shall generally be placed within the parking lot edge. Section 3.7 General Site Tree Planting - Commercial Districts A. Intent It is the intent of this subsection to plant trees to improve energy conservation and comfort levels, as well as to enhance the rural character of the Town. Tree groupings located in close proximity of buildings on the south and southwest sides will reduce sun exposure, glare and heat build-up particularly during the warm summer months. Conversely, chilling winter winds from the north and northwest can be buffered and re -directed with proper tree plantings. Early spring and summer breezes should be re -directed toward external public spaces to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of these protected areas. August Id, 1998 Article III. Landscape Requirement Circle T PD Supplement Page 37 ORDINANCE 007510.00019:0359104.11 1.
