CHAPTER 10 - PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT (PUD)



10.0.10 Purpose.



The purpose of a Planned Unit Development (PUD) is to permit greater freedom and creativity of design in land development than that allowed under a strict interpretation of the zoning and subdivision regulations. The success of a Planned Unit Development is dependent upon the submission of an acceptable plan with assurances that the plan can be successfully carried out. A Planned Unit Development is residential in nature, but it may include compatible cultural, recreational and commercial uses as accessory uses. A Planned Unit Development endeavors to provide:

1. Economic efficiency for the community, buyer and seller.



2. Aesthetic qualities.



3. Common open space, recreation areas and facilities.



4. Convenience in location of accessory uses.



5. Preservation of natural topographical and geological features with emphasis on minimizing soil erosion; conservation of existing surface and subsurface water, and preservation of features that enhance the environment.



6. Dwellings or commercial units may be clustered within the PUD, and they may incorporate detached, semi-detached, attached, single-story, multi-storied, and any combination of the aforementioned structures.



7. Religious, cultural, recreational and commercial uses and purposes may be accommodated within a specific Planned Unit Development when they are accessory to the residential use.
