The PDD expired in 2003 and the zoning reverted back to A-0 Agricultural-Open. Staff sees the purpose of this PDD as reinstating the previously approved land uses in the 1997 PDD-H.

If the PDD zoning is approved, the lot configuration and street layout will go before the Design Review Board for approval. Budget & Financial Summary: N/A Attachments: 1. Small Area Map 2.

Infrastructure and Facilities Zoning Commission meeting minutes Item Background: The property was annexed into the City in 1996 and zoned A-0 Agricultural Open at that time. In 1997 the City Council gave direction for City staff to initiate rezoning of the property to PDD-H. An amendment to the PDD ordinance was approved in August 2001 that placed an expiration date of 24 months on all PDDs, therefore, the PDD zoning expired in August 2003. According to City Ordinance, the property reverted back to its previous zoning, A-0 Agricultural Open. South Hampton Phase One, platted in 2000, is still zoned PDD-H. Existing A-O, Agricultural-Open: PURPOSE: This district includes lands within the corporate limits of the City, which are not subdivided and are relatively undeveloped. This district is designed to be applied to land which is used for agricultural, very low-intensity residential, or open space uses, but which is projected in the Comprehensive Plan for conversion to more intensive urban uses at such time as community services are available and community needs for such uses are present. As such, it is a reserved area in which the future growth of the City can occur.

If this necessitates varying from certain standards, the proposed development should demonstrate community benefits. The PDD is appropriate in areas where the land use plan reflects the specific commercial or residential uses proposed in the PDD. A PDD may be used to permit new or innovative concepts in land utilization not permitted by other zoning districts. While greater flexibility is given to allow special conditions or restrictions that would not otherwise allow the development to occur, procedures are established to ensure against misuse of increased flexibility. A PDD should not be used to: I. Guarantee specific site or building characteristics within a development; 2. Apply conditional development standards to a single site; 3. Vary from certain development standards unless community benefits outweigh the requested modifications; or 4. Combine commercial and residential land uses. A P-MUD shall be used for mixed-use developments. The Planned Development District is intended to provide such flexibility and performance criteria which produce: I. A maximum choice in the type of environment for working and living available to the public; 2. Open space and recreation areas; 3. A pattern of development which preserves trees, outstanding natural topography and geologic features, and prevents soil erosion; 4. A creative approach to the use of land and related physical development; 5. An efficient use of land resulting in smaller networks of utilities and streets, thereby lowering development costs; 6. An environment of stable character in harmony with surrounding development; and 7. A more desirable environment than would be possible through strict application of other sections or districts in the UDO. USES: AS PROPOSED BY THE APPLICANT.
