Those submitting application for PUD are strongly encouraged to meet with the Planning Administrator, Chris Bauer.

The planned unit development is designed to provide for small and large scale developments incorporating a single type or a variety of residential, commercial, industrial and related uses, which are planned and developed as a unit with integrated design and function.

A planned unit development shall be a separate entity with a distinct character in harmony with surrounding development.
