Chapter 18.4.4 contains standards for landscaping and screening, recycle and refuse disposal areas, outdoor lighting, and fences and walls. The regulations are intended to protect public health, safety, and welfare by reducing development impacts, such as glare, noise, and visual impacts, on adjacent uses; minimizing erosion; slowing the rate of surface water runoff, thereby reducing infrastructure costs; buffering pedestrians from vehicle maneuvering areas; cooling buildings and parking lots in summer months with shade; and enhancing the city’s appearance.
