Community Park: A large park that serves the needs of the broader community and that is designed primarily for providing active and structured recreation opportunities.
Compatible/Compatibility: when the density, form, bulk, height, setbacks and/or materials of buildings are able to co-exist with their surroundings.

Scale: The relative size of an object when compared to others of its kind, to its environment, or to humans.
Secondary Street: the street with a lower traffic volume where two streets intersect.
Sense of enclosure: when buildings physically define public spaces particularly through proportions between height and width in an area to create places that are comfortable to pedestrians.
Setback: the required distance from a road, property line, or another structure, within which no building can be located, with the exception of permitted projections.
Sidewalk: unobstructed concrete pedestrian travel route in the public right-of-way.
Soft landscape: landscape features of plantings, such as trees, shrubs, vines, perennials and annuals.
Stormwater management area: a feature or facility for stormwater flows intended for capture and water quality improvement, including such elements as watercourses or management ponds.
