PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICTS

PLANNED DEVELOPMENT (PD) DISTRICTS

Planned Development Districts or PD's are intended to provide for the development of land as an integral unit for single or mixed use in accordance with a PD concept plan that may include uses, regulations and other requirements that vary from the traditional zoning districts contained within the Unified Development Code (UDC) or from other ordinances, rules or regulations of the city. PD's are intended to implement the goals and objectives of the city's Comprehensive Plan, but may be accompanied by specific amendments to the provisions of the Comprehensive Plan, the Parks and Open Space Plan and/or the Master Thoroughfare Plan. PD's are also intended to encourage flexible and creative planning, to ensure compatibility of land uses, and to allow for the adjustment of changing demands to meet the current needs of the community by meeting one or more of the following purposes: 1) to provide for a superior design of lots or buildings; 2) to provide for increased recreation and/or open space opportunities for public use; 3) to provide amenities or features that would be of special benefit to the property users or community; 4) to protect or preserve natural amenities and environmental assets such as trees, creeks, ponds, floodplains, slopes or hills and view corridors; 5) to protect or preserve existing historical buildings, structures, features or places; or 6) to provide an appropriate balance between the intensity of development and the ability to provide adequate supporting public facilities and services.
