(PUD) Planned Unit Development:
The purpose of the Planned Unit Development (PUD) procedure is to provide design flexibility in the planning and construction of development projects. A PUD permits mixed use development in accordance with an approved plan that should contribute to the Goals, Strategies and Actions described in the Carbon County Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The PUD procedure allows variations from the standards of the other zone districts and subdivision standards in order to permit flexibility for land owners to creatively plan for the overall development of their land.
The goal is to make more efficient use of land that lowers development and maintenance cost of infrastructure and achieves a more desirable development than would be possible through the strict application of the Zoning and Subdivision Regulations. The PUD process can accommodate well-designed residential or mixed use business park development that is typically composed of commercial and light industrial uses, research and development facilities, offices and business services, developed in a campus or park-like environment.
