Section 4. Be it further enacted, that the following conditions shall be completed, bonded or satisfied as specifically required:

5. A note shall be added to the final site plan that the park/open space shall be maintained by the homeowner’s association, property management group, or other entity responsible for the maintenance of common areas and amenities within the development.

6. To ensure that Donelson Pike is addressed as the principle frontage, the following architectural standards shall apply to mixed-use or commercial buildings with frontage on Donelson Pike:

• Revise the standard addressing wall planes along Donelson to read as follows: Long, uninterrupted wall planes along Donelson Pike shall be avoided through the incorporation of articulations or alternating building materials.
7. Articulations or alternating building materials shall be incorporated into the buildings to avoid long uninterrupted wall planes. The western façade of the four-story building should be treated as a principle frontage.
8. A minimum 12-foot landscape buffer yard that may incorporate the proposed retaining walls shall be provided along all portions of the southern property boundary adjacent to Map 096-05, Parcels 104-113, depicted on the plan as Lots 9-18, Colonial Village.

10. With the Final Site Plan, the applicant shall depict a cross-access easement on Parcel 099 that provides access to Parcels 097, 098, and 138 should those properties redevelop.

11. A secondary, emergency-only access drive shall be provided at the northern end of the project site from Donelson Pike to the multi-family residential buildings and parking in the rear of the site.

The rate of payment shall be as currently set by the Department of Public Works.
13. Elevations consistent with the architectural standards and conceptual elevations in the Preliminary SP shall be provided with the submittal of the Final Site plan.
14. The Preliminary SP plan is the site plan and associated documents. If applicable, remove all notes and references that indicate that the site plan is illustrative, conceptual, etc.
Section 5. Be it further enacted, a corrected copy of the preliminary SP plan incorporating the conditions of approval by Metro Council shall be provided to the Planning Department prior to or with final site plan application.
Section 6. Be it further enacted, minor modifications to the preliminary SP plan may be approved by the Planning Commission or its designee based upon final architectural, engineering or site design and actual site conditions. All modifications shall be consistent with the principles and further the objectives of the approved plan. Modifications shall not be permitted, except through an ordinance approved by Metro Council that increase the permitted density or floor area, add uses not otherwise permitted, eliminate specific conditions or requirements contained in the plan as adopted through this enacting ordinance, or add vehicular access points not currently present or approved.
Section 7. Be it further enacted, if a development standard, not including permitted uses, is absent from the SP plan and/or Council approval, the property shall be subject to the standards, regulations and requirements of the MUL-A zoning district as of the date of the applicable request or application.
Section 8. Be it further enacted, that this ordinance take effect immediately after its passage and such change be published in a newspaper of general circulation, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
