Zoning Types

Agriculture"A" GENERAL AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT

General Description

This district creates and preserves areas intended for agricultural purposes and those areas considered to be outside the path of urban development where urban services in terms of water and sanitary sewer are not available. The types of uses, area and intensity of use regulations are designed to encourage and protect agricultural uses on a permanent basis or until such time as urbanization takes place and a change in zoning district classification is appropriate. The development regulations in this district are intended to protect homes from encroachment by higher residential densities and incompatible land uses, while making provision for conduct of agricultural activities, including such requirements as accommodations for caretakers or a limited number of farm employees. Since the residential uses permitted represent a significant contribution to the character and stability of the community, it is not intended that this district provide a lower standard for housing and the environment than is expected in other districts.

“PUD” PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT

General Description

The Planned Unit Development District (PUD) is a special zoning district category that provides an alternate approach to conventional land use controls. The PUD process offers an opportunity for more creative solutions to redevelopment issues while at the same time requiring a proposal that conforms to the goals and policies of the city’s Comprehensive Plan. The PUD is subject to special review procedures, and once approved by the City Council it becomes a special zoning classification for the property it represents. Any proposed modification in the form of a change in zoning of a part of the PUD area constitutes a requirement to amend the entire PUD to accommodate the area being excluded.
