The following uses shall be permitted in PUD zones, after securing a use permit under this chapter for each planned unit development:

The number of dwelling units shall not exceed the requirements of the land use element of the general plan for such area, exclusive of areas required to be dedicated to the public. [Ord. 1183 N.S. § 1, 1980].

23.60.050 Side yard.

Where a PUD is contiguous to a different zone, it shall observe the minimum side yard required for the other zone along the line of contiguity, subject to the authority of the planning commission to require a greater setback in considering a use permit application. [Ord. 1183 N.S. § 1, 1980].

Any application for change of zone to PUD by an owner shall be signed by all persons owning an interest in the property affected and shall be accompanied by an application for a use permit. [Ord. 1183 N.S. § 1, 1980].

23.60.070 Use permit – Application – Fees and documents.

Applications for a use permit shall be accompanied by a general development plan showing the use or uses, dimensions and locations of proposed structures and of areas to be reserved for vehicular and pedestrian circulation, parking, public uses such as schools and playgrounds, landscaping, and other open spaces, and architectural drawings and sketches demonstrating the design and character of the proposed uses and physical relationship of the uses. Such other pertinent information shall be included as may be necessary to a determination that the contemplated arrangement of use makes it desirable to apply regulations and requirements differing from those ordinarily applicable under this chapter.

Applications shall be accompanied by a fee as established by resolution of the council, no part of which is refundable. [Ord. 1765 N.S. § 18, 1991; Ord. 1183 N.S. § 1, 1980].

(1) Any residential development will be in harmony with the character of the surrounding neighborhood.

(2) Any commercial development is needed at the proposed location, will not create additional traffic congestion, has adequate off-street parking, and the development will be an attractive center which will fit harmoniously into and will not adversely affect the neighborhood.
