The total ground area covered by all buildings shall not exceed twenty-five (25) percent.
No building shall be set back less than fifty (50) feet from the front property line, provided further the front yard shall be landscaped with lawn, plant materials, and/or trees.
Off-street loading requirements shall be as provided in Chapter 17.112.
A. Screening and buffering shall be used to mitigate adverse visual impacts, obscure outdoor storage areas, and to provide for compatibility between dissimilar adjoining uses. Special consideration will be given to the buffering and screening between residential uses and commercial or industrial uses, and in visually sensitive areas. It is not the intent of this Chapter to require screening or buffering of principal structures, or of products displayed for retail sale.
B. Screening and buffering may be accomplished by the use of sight-obscuring plant materials, earth berms, walls, fences, building parapets, building placement or other design techniques. Corrugated metal, doors, or similar "scrap" materials shall not be used for screening and buffering.
C. Screening is required to substantially block any view of material, equipment, or stored vehicles from any point located on a street or adjoining property adjacent to the site. A sight-obscuring fence at least six (6) feet in height is required around the material or equipment.
D. A screening and buffering plan shall be submitted for review by the Pueblo County Department of Planning and Development. This plan shall include a site plan, which specifies all screening and buffering materials, type of landscaping, and elevations to depict compliance with these requirements. Screening and buffering not specifically mentioned in these regulations, but found appropriate and necessary due to unusual conditions on the site, may be required.
