Planned Unit Development (PUD) Creation / Modification

What is a Planned Unit Development?

An application for the creation/modification of a Planned Unit Development is required when a property owner proposes to rezone his or her property to Planned Unit Development or seeks to amend the language or requirements of a Master Development Plan for an existing Planned Unit Development. The establishment of Planned Unit Development (PUD) districts are for specialized purposes where tracts are in a suitable location, area and character for the uses and structures proposed to be planned and developed in a unified manner. Suitability of such tracts for the plans and development proposed for the PUD district shall be determined primarily by reference to the existing and prospective character of surrounding development and the City's Comprehensive Plan. PUDs are intended to promote the economical and efficient use of land, an improved level of amenities, appropriate and harmonious variety in physical development, creative design, and a better environment.
