What is "Planned Development" zoning?
Planned Development or “PD” zoning is referred to as an overlay type of zoning. It allows a local government to decide on a land use request on a case-by-case basis, and usually results in a “give and take” strategy between the developer and the local government. If approval for a PD is granted, all of the requirements are written into a specific ordinance (a local law) that is voted on by the City Council for the address in question. The PD ordinance is fully enforceable in a court of law.
