Planned Development Overlay District (PDOD) Pilot Extended

City Council approved a 6-month pilot to test a Planned Development Overlay District (PDOD) in March 2013, and approved a one-year extension in September 2013. This district is a new approach to regulating infill development and redevelopment, blending the City's existing Land Use Code (LUC) with performance-based regulations. If you have a complex project and could benefit from a flexible application of development standards, PDOD may be right for you. PDOD development submittals will be accepted through September 2014.
