Development Performance Standards

Establish minimum criteria for assessing whether a particular project is appropriate for a certain area in terms of its impact upon, and compatibility with, surrounding land uses. For example, performance standards might seek to reduce traffic impacts instead of restricting the type of land use for a particular site. (This is sometimes known as "performance zoning.")
