An ordinance amending the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) for Columbus, Georgia so as to establish an overlay district for Manchester Expressway.
Section 2.5.22 Manchester Expressway Overlay District Ordinance
The purposes of this section are to:
(B) Medians. Private roads and entrances to developments connecting with the public access road in the Corridor or serving development in a Focus Area shall include center medians. Such roadway designs will be based upon projected traffic volume and the number of parking spaces. Medians are desired because they improve traffic safety and can be planted to enhance the overall appearance of the Focus Area, as well as provide refuge for pedestrians.
(3) When parking areas are provided in a front yard (in between a public road right-of-way and a principle building), a combination of landscaped earthen berm and evergreen hedge with a minimum height of 18 inches shall be used. The total height of landscaped earthen berm and hedge combination shall reach a minimum height of 2.5 feet at planting. Screening shall be located in the planting yard if it does not impede other uses or purposes of the yard.
