A PUD is a mechanism that allows developers flexibility to meet objectives such as use, density, site planning, and design. To achieve this flexibility, developers may incorporate public benefits that exceed those that could have been achieved under the general provisions of the Zoning Regulations. PUDs may be sought in conjunction with a map amendment or a related map amendment (related map amendments are specific to the PUD for the life of the development).
