Planned Development Reviews are intended to allow for innovative and creative development while assuring that development will complement the existing neighborhood character. Planned Developments can also be a way to achieve minimum or maximum density requirements on a site that has natural constraints such as large areas of trees, seeps, springs, streams, flood hazard, or potential landslide hazard areas.
A Planned Development Review allows alternative housing types, modification of site-related development standards (such as setbacks), alternative lot sizes for residential lots, some commercial uses in the RF through R1 zones and transfer of development within or between sites. A Planned Development may be the only land use review requested for a site, or may be part of a proposal for a Land Division.
