17.362.010 General.

(1) For Subdivision of Land. The subdivision planned unit development (PUD) process is established to encourage the development of single or multiple tracts of land as one project. An approved PUD may deviate from specific site standards as long as the PUD substantially complies with general purposes of the applicable standards of this title. The PUD approach is appropriate if it maintains compatibility with surrounding areas and creates an attractive, healthful, efficient, and stable environment. It is the intent of the PUD process to: achieve a more efficient use of land through shared facilities and services, thereby economizing on development costs; afford innovative design opportunities rather than the conventional lot-and-block land use so that a developer gains freedom in the placement and uses of buildings and open space, and in the design of facilities and traffic circulation systems; maximize development potential of building sites constrained by special features such as topography, shape, or size while minimizing the potential for hazardous conditions; and provide substantial active and passive open space and trail systems for use of nearby residents.

(2) For Development Projects. The planned unit development (PUD) process for nonsubdivision projects is established to accommodate the intent and directives of the comprehensive plan but allows deviation from a land use district’s underlying development standard consistent with CBDC 17.362.030(2). The PUD approach can facilitate creative and innovative development strategies if it maintains compatibility with surrounding areas and creates an attractive, healthful, efficient, and stable environment. [Ord. 532 § 2 (Att. B), 2020; Ord. 503 § 1 (Exh. B), 2018; Ord. 473 § 3 (Exh. A), 2016. Formerly 17.317.010].

(2) PUD Related to Nonsubdivision Development Projects. A land use application shall include the requirements specified in CBDC 17.130.040 and 17.130.050. [Ord. 532 § 2 (Att. B), 2020; Ord. 503 § 1 (Exh. B), 2018; Ord. 473 § 3 (Exh. A), 2016. Formerly 17.317.020].

17.362.030 Approval criteria for a preliminary PUD.

(1) Subdivision PUD. The review authority shall evaluate a preliminary PUD against the approval in CBDC 17.367.040, Approval criteria for a preliminary plat, and the requirements of this chapter.

(2) Development Project PUD. The review authority shall evaluate a PUD against the approval requirements of the CBMC to accommodate an adjustment of the numerical standards for the following: setbacks, building heights, landscaping, lot coverage and lot dimensions or lot area. However, deviation from these standards shall not exceed the limits of the Uniform Building Code. [Ord. 532 § 2 (Att. B), 2020; Ord. 503 § 1 (Exh. B), 2018; Ord. 473 § 3 (Exh. A), 2016.
