What is a Planned Development (PD) District?

The Planned Development (PD) district is designed to permit flexibility and encourage a more creative, efficient, and aesthetically desirable design and placement of buildings, open spaces and circulation patterns by allowing a mixture or combination of uses. A PD district may be used to permit new or innovative concepts in land utilization not permitted by other standard zoning districts in this Code to enhance existing or create new areas within the City that will promote the City's historical, cultural and architectural character. It is intended for application in all land use designations on the Future Land Use Plan, provided that the uses and development standards proposed are consistent with the stated goals of the City's Land Use Plan, including those found regarding Regional Activity Centers. The layout plan should provide an overall design, or other features or amenities that result in a high quality development. A PD may not be used for the primary purpose of avoiding the zoning regulations applicable to the primary zoning districts.
