The "Special City Island District" established in this Resolution is designed to promote and protect public health, safety, general welfare and amenity. These general goals include, among others, the following specific purposes:

(a)        to promote and strengthen the unique character of the Special City Island District for nautical and waterfront activities by limiting permitted uses to those which complement and enhance the existing character of the Special District;

(b)        to maintain the existing low-rise residential and commercial character of the district by regulating the height of buildings;

(c)        to maintain and protect the environmental quality and "village" character of City Island Avenue by imposing special controls on building setbacks and signs; and

(d)        to promote the most desirable use of land in this area and thus to conserve the value of land and thereby protect the City's tax revenue.
