A Planned Unit Development (PUD) is a site-specific zoning district. PUDs provide for mixed-uses, a more flexible response to the market, and encourage a more desirable site plan design. The development quality must be equal to or better than what would be required by standard zoning. The Planning and Zoning Commission reviews PUD submittals and provides a recommendation to the City Council. The City Council has final authoritative action over PUD submittals. If approved, the PUD Agreement and zoning map amendment are adopted through Ordinance. For code information on this type of zoning, refer to Article VI. Planned Unit Development.
A Development Agreement is a contractual agreement between the City and the land owner relating to the development or redevelopment of a piece of property. A Development Agreement aims to ensure that future growth is managed properly and cooperatively with the land owner. The agreement contains comprehensive building provisions in accordance with the zoning classification of the property and may contain negotiated deferrals and/or reimbursement terms. The City Council has final authoritative action over Development Agreements. If approved, the agreement is adopted through Ordinance. Listed below are the most recent agreements.
