CHAPTER 17.3 - SPECIAL PUBLIC INTEREST (SPI) DISTRICTS

ARTICLE I. - IN GENERAL

 

Sec. 17.3-1. - Intent.

 

It is the intent of this chapter to permit creation of Special Public Interest (SPI) Districts in areas designated by the city council as having special and substantial public interest, by virtue of unique environmental, economic, or cultural circumstances or other conditions not generally shared by other areas of the city.

 

It is further intended that such districts and the regulations established therein shall be in accord with and promote the purposes set forth in the comprehensive plan and other officially adopted plans of the city, and shall encourage land use and development in substantial accord with the physical design set forth therein.

 

Sec. 17.3-2. - Effect of SPI District designation.

 

Such SPI Districts either:

 

(1) May supplant districts or portions of districts existing at the time of creation of a particular SPI District; or

(2) May be superimposed so as to modify requirements, regulations, and procedures applying in the underlying district or districts.

 

Sec. 17.3-3. - Preparation of SPI zoning recommendations.

 

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 24-1 of this ordinance, recommendations for special SPI zoning shall be prepared only by the planning commission on its own initiative or at the direction of city council. Each recommendation shall identify the proposed zoning by the SPI prefix and an abbreviation which uniquely identifies the proposed district, and shall contain information and recommendations as indicated below concerning the areas proposed for such regulations.

 

(1) Statement of intent. The amendment shall include a statement of intent, specifying the nature of the special and substantial public interest involved and the objectives to be promoted by special regulations and/or procedures within the SPI District as a whole, or within sub-areas of the district, if division into such sub-areas is reasonably necessary for achievement of regulatory purposes.

(2) Proposed district boundaries. The recommendations shall include a map or maps indicating:

(a) The boundaries of the SPI District and any sub-areas established within the district for purposes of SPI regulations;

(b) The location and zoning designation of districts or portions of districts, if any to be supplanted by SPI zoning; and

(c) The zoning designations of all portions of underlying districts, if any, which will remain after SPI zoning is superimposed and the general regulations of which will be affected by the superimposed SPI zoning.

(3) Proposed regulations. The planning commission's recommendations shall include regulations designed to promote the special purposes of the district, as set forth in the statement of intent. In particular, such regulations may require submission of detailed site plans, building plans and elevations, and maps indicating the relation of proposed development to surrounding or otherwise affected property. The regulation may require approval of such plans by the director of planning or other administrative officer, based upon such criteria as may be necessary and appropriate to protect or promote the special public interest for which the district is created. Where such approval is required, no building permit shall be issued until after written approval, and then only for development in accord with approved plans and instruments. Where such approval is required, the regulations shall provide for a mechanism of appeal, whereby a permit applicant aggrieved by the administrative officer's withholding of approval may seek relief.

(1) To conserve and protect open space, natural environmental features, and wildlife habitat;

(2) To enhance the quality of life with provision of space for walking, passive recreation, and aesthetic enjoyment; and

(3) To provide for recreational opportunities, where appropriate.

 

Designating these areas as public land will raise the degree of assurance that designated open space and recreational areas will remain. It is intended to identify those parcels, relate them to the land use element of the city's adopted comprehensive plan and major elements of existing land use characteristics, and permit the greatest certainty regarding the character of potential uses of this public land.

(Amended 6-18-08)

 

Sec. 17.3-26. - Application of the district.

 

To enable the district to operate in harmony with the plan for land use and populations embodied in these regulations, the PL District shall be applied only to those lands owned or leased by the City of Hampton or any other governmental entity or political subdivision and shall hereinafter be referred to as "Public Land."

ARTICLE VI. - SPI-HRCHAMPTON ROADS CENTER DISTRICT

 

Sec. 17.3-38. - Intent.

ARTICLE VII. - SPI-MVCMAGRUDER VISUAL CORRIDOR

 

Sec. 17.3-44. - Intent.

 

The Magruder Corridor, which generally encompasses property visible from Magruder Boulevard, has a significant role in the economic well-being of the City of Hampton. As the heart of the high-tech corridor which extends from NASA to Newport News, Magruder Boulevard links Langley/NASA, the industrial/business parks on Magruder Boulevard, and the Mercury Central Business District.

 

Strong public policy has emphasized the importance of the visual environment in furthering the economic well-being of the city. This policy, as embodied in the Hampton Roads Center aesthetic controls, supports the establishment of the Magruder Visual Corridor District to guide the visual character of the corridor so that private development will match the standards set by the public sector initiative.

 

The Special Public InterestMagruder Visual Corridor (SPI-MVC) District is intended to protect the visual environment along Magruder Boulevard in order to allow planned economic development to occur in a manner which provides a positive visual impact along the major roads in the Magruder Corridor.

 

Positive visual impact will occur through the control of the number, size, and location of signs, the establishment of a landscaped setback to buffer the visual and environmental impacts of the built environment, and the restriction of certain uses.

 

Sec. 17.3-45. - Application of the district.

 

The SPI-MVC District is created as a special district to be superimposed by a special symbol for its boundaries on the zoning district map. All regulations of the underlying districts shall apply except as modified by the regulations in the SPI-MVC District.

ARTICLE X. - SPI-CBPDCHESAPEAKE BAY PRESERVATION DISTRICT

 

 

ARTICLE XI. - SPI-OHOLD HAMPTON DISTRICT

 

Sec. 17.3-68. - Intent.

 

The Old Hampton District is of special and substantial public interest because it has served as the community's cultural, economic, and governmental center for over three hundred (300) years; because it has acquired a unique atmosphere and charm, by virtue of its history and the influence of waterfront activities, which is not duplicated in the city and which is worthy of preservation and enhancement; because it has been the target of an on-going redevelopment effort which has sought to provide such preservation and enhancement; and because a significant capital commitment has been made already by the community in an effort to improve the physical character of the district.

 

It is the intent of these regulations to continue and expand the guidance provided in the Old Hampton Redevelopment and Conservation Plan, as amended, for the preservation and enhancement of the historic character of Old Hampton; to protect against undesirable encroachment upon the district to encourage uses which are both compatible with past development and supportive of the character to be preserved; and to assure that new structures and uses within the district will maintain visual and functional harmony with past private development which has taken place within guidelines established by local public agencies.

 

It is also the intent of these regulations to implement the recommendations contained in the 2004 Downtown Hampton Master Plan, as amended, which encourages a vibrant, mixed use downtown that is intimately connected to the waterfront, surrounding neighborhoods, and its heritage and that maintains its existing charm and intimacy.

 

It is further intended that any site plan or other reviews required by these regulations shall be carried out in accordance with the objectives stated above, and that any required approvals shall not be withheld except where the proposed development is definably inappropriate or incompatible with such objectives.

(Amended 3-24-04)

 

Sec. 17.3-69. - Boundaries.

ARTICLE XII. - SPI-BBUCKROE DISTRICT

 

Sec. 17.3-88. - Intent.

 

Publicly-owned land at the Buckroe Beachfront is a special and unique public interest, in that it represents a unique and historical recreational and cultural asset to the Buckroe community, the City of Hampton, and the region as a whole. It is the intent of the SPI-Buckroe District to recognize the dual role that this property may serve in the future development of the Buckroe community. The fundamental and overriding role of this unique land asset is as public recreation and open space, in support of the enormous public use experienced by the Chesapeake Bay beachfront.

 

While the district placed emphasis on the protection of this asset for public recreation and open space, there is recognition of the possible role some of this property may play in serving as the impetus for improving the overall condition of the housing stock in the Buckroe community. This district establishes a special zoning classification for the publicly held and unimproved property adjacent to the Buckroe Beachfront Park. Although it is intended that this property be publicly held and utilized as open area in perpetuity, if the objectives to improve the Buckroe area's housing stock are not actualized, then activities to spur new development and encourage upgrades to the existing housing stock will be implemented. These activities may include amending this zoning classification of the subject property to permit its development, condemnation of adjacent properties, private acquisition, and assembly of land for redevelopment, demolition, etc. Amending the special zoning designation of the subject property should be considered only after all efforts to effect a positive change in the community's housing stock conditions prove to be futile and are exhausted.

 

Sec. 17.3-89. - Boundaries.

 

The Buckroe District shall include the 3.28+ acres of city-owned property within the following boundaries:

 

Beginning at the intersection of South 1st Street and Buckroe Avenue; following the centerline of Buckroe Avenue northwest to its intersection with South 2nd Street; following the centerline of South 2nd Street southwest two hundred thirty-three plus (233+) feet; then heading southeast parallel to Buckroe Avenue to the centerline of South 1st Street; following the center line of South 1st Street northeast back to the intersection with Buckroe Avenue.

Also, beginning at the intersection of Point Comfort Avenue and South 2nd Street; following the centerline of Point Comfort Avenue southeast to the intersection with South 1st Street; following the centerline of South 1st Street northeast two hundred thirty-four plus (234+) feet; then heading northwest parallel to East Pembroke Avenue to the centerline of South 2nd Street; following the centerline of South 2nd Street back to the intersection with Point Comfort Avenue.

Sec. 17.3-130. - Intent.

 

The Buckroe Bayfront District is intended to be a tool for implementation of the recommendations and policies of the Buckroe Master Plan (2005, as amended), guiding development, redevelopment, and revitalization activities in the Buckroe Bayfront area. Buckroe is a unique place in the Hampton Roads region with a neighborhood and architectural character that is an asset that must be protected and enhanced as new development becomes a part of the Buckroe community. Buckroe's character is based on its dual role as both a Chesapeake Bay beachfront community that draws visitors from areas beyond the neighborhood, and as a primarily single-family residential neighborhood in the City of Hampton. The Buckroe Master Plan (2005, as amended) provides the design principles that reflect these aspects of Buckroe's character, balancing between its two (2) roles and guiding the scale and location for new development and public improvements. The Buckroe Bayfront District is also intended to reinforce Buckroe's compact, walkable environment and promote a community design that is environmentally and economically sustainable.
