A. Applicability. All projects containing land identified on the North Mountain Neighborhood Plan map as part of the North Mountain/Bear Creek Greenway shall dedicate that area so designated to the City for park purposes. It is recognized that previous zone changes allowing increases in allowable development density (up-zoning) as part of the North Mountain Neighborhood Plan imparted significant value to properties, and the required dedication of those lands within the North Mountain/Bear Creek Greenway for park purposes is both necessary based on the impacts of planned development and proportional to the value bestowed upon the property through the change in zoning designation.

B. Dedication on Final Survey Plat. The dedication of lands within the North Mountain/Bear Creek Greenway shall be indicated on the final survey plat accompanying all partitions, subdivisions, and Performance Standards developments.

C. Development Restrictions. It is recognized that lands within the North Mountain/Bear Creek Greenway are identified as part of Ashland’s Floodplain Corridor Lands, and are prohibited from further development, except as outlined in chapter 18.3.10 Physical and Environmental Constraints Overlay.

D. Prohibition of Density Transfer. No transfer of density from lands identified within the North Mountain/Bear Creek Greenway shall be permitted. It is recognized that the up-zoning associated with the North Mountain Neighborhood Plan accommodated such transfers.

E. Greenway Drive. The design of Greenway Drive, as indicated on the neighborhood plan, shall incorporate flood protection measures, as determined by a geotechnical expert, in the overall design of the new street. Such protection measures shall address flooding in the floodplain corridor and in areas of historic flooding.
