(1) Create a sustainable environment that includes:

(a) Shared use of services and facilities.

(b) A compatible mix of land uses that encourage alternatives to the use of the automobile.

(c) A variety of dwelling types that help meet the needs of all income groups in the community.

(d) Preservation of existing natural resources and the opportunity to enhance habitat areas.

(e) Clustering of residential dwellings to achieve energy and resource conservation while also achieving the planned density for the site.

(2) Create comprehensive site plans for geographic areas of sufficient size to provide developments at least equal in quality to those that are achieved through the traditional lot by lot development and that are reasonably compatible with the surrounding area.
