Sec. 35.1-16. Planned unit development, cluster commercial development, or traditional neighborhood development.
(a) Intent. Planned unit developments (PUD), cluster commercial developments (CCD), and traditional neighborhood developments (TND) are to be created as a conditional use in all specified districts. The intent of this section is to provide for developments on relatively large tracts of land which involve a variety of uses and/or building types. Such developments can provide economies in construction, maintenance and the provision of services, as well as increased amenity, for the public good, greater preservation of natural conditions and innovations in environmental design.
(b) Procedure for city council action. Specific standards and procedures for PUDs, CCDs, and TNDs are found in Sec. 35.1-42.1 to 35.1-42.8, Sec. 35.1-43, and Section 35.1-43.5 to 35.1-43.13 respectively. However, at a minimum the following procedure shall apply. When the division of planning shall receive an application for PUD, CCD, or TND, the division shall ensure that the required documentation is complete. If documentation is not complete, the division shall require such additional information as necessary from the applicant. When documentation is complete, the division of planning shall forward a copy to the planning commission together with comments and recommendations from appropriate review bodies. The planning commission shall, after a public hearing under the regulations of Section 35.1-19 of this ordinance, review the application and forward recommendations to the city council. The city council shall, after a public hearing as provided for under the regulations of Section 35.1-19 of this ordinance, approve or deny the application in accordance with the regulations of Article X of this ordinance. Approval of a planned unit development, cluster commercial development, or traditional neighborhood development shall have the effect of an official zoning map change to the planned unit development district, the cluster commercial development district, or the traditional neighborhood development district respectively.
(c) Procedure for development permission within a planned unit development district, a cluster commercial development district, or traditional neighborhood development district. Permission for development within any of these districts shall be granted under the regulations of Section 35.1-14 of this ordinance and of their respective ordinance sections: Sec. 35.1-42.1 to 35.1-42.8 for PUDs, Sec. 35.1-43 for CCDs, and Sec. 35.1-43.5 to 35.1-43.13 for TNDs. Application for development permission may be made for a portion of the proposed development or for the entire development, but building permits issued for construction in such developments shall expire one (1) year from the date of issuance unless substantial construction of such development shall have commenced.
(d) Documentation required. The documentation required for an application for a planned unit development, a cluster commercial development, or a traditional neighborhood development shall be that required by Section 35.1-14.
(e) Amendments. Amendments to planned unit developments, cluster commercial developments, or traditional neighborhood developments shall be processed in the same manner as original applications, including hearings and notices.
(f) Building permits. No building permit will be issued in a planned unit development, a cluster commercial development, or a traditional neighborhood development unless the construction proposed therein is in conformance with the approved site development plan.
