What is a Planned Unit Development?

A Planned Unit Development (PUD) is a re-zoning request that any applicant with at least three acres can make. A PUD allows flexibility from the standard zoning district for the purposes of allowing better design or other public benefits and, in exchange the developer is allowed flexibility from the standards set forth in code (examples can be setbacks, lot coverage, height). For example, Silver Lake Village was developed as a PUD. Through a PUD request, more review is necessary than the standard zoning and items like urban design, walkability, public use amenities, affordable housing and other items not otherwise required by the code will be reviewed.
