The CO Zone is not a separate zone district but an overlay over portions of the existing OS-GU and RA-130 Zones, which are intended to remain undeveloped except for certain enumerated uses consistent with natural open space and conservation values. The purpose of the CO Zone is to assure that the natural, scenic and open space character of the lands within it will be retained. The overlay zone boundary shall coincide with the boundary of the conservation easement dated September 14, 1992, and recorded between the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority (grantor) and the County of Morris (grantee) as recorded in Deed Book 3648, pages 222 to 233.

Planned unit development regulations.
(1) 
Area. The land area required for a planned unit development shall be a minimum of 145 acres.
(2) 
A planned unit development shall contain the following components:
(a) 
A Residential East Overlay District consisting of ±38 acres with frontage along Columbia Road and Park Avenue.
(b) 
A Residential West Overlay District consisting of ±28 acres with access from Old Turnpike Road.
(c) 
An Office/Lab Overlay District consisting of ±81 acres with frontage along Columbia Road.
Each of the overlay districts described above shall be sized and located as shown on the Zoning Map.
(d) 
A mandatory open space set-aside comprising at least 10% of the tract area. A minimum of 13 acres within the westerly most portion of the Residential West Overlay District with access from Old Turnpike Road shall be designated for open space use. Required open space shall either be permanently deed restricted to open space or dedicated to the municipality for public open space purposes. Any legal instrument/agreement providing for private deed-restricted open space shall be reviewed by the Township Attorney to assure that adequate safeguards are included providing for its enforcement in perpetuity. If open space is not dedicated to the Township of Morris, the legal instrument/agreement shall give the Township the right to perform maintenance and assess the cost to the property owners benefited thereby in the event the property owners fail to maintain said open space in accordance with the same. All provisions of N.J.S.A. 40:55D-43 shall govern the open space and the organization to be created to maintain it. Open space may include athletic fields, other active recreational facilities, and walking trails and passive recreation designed to the extent practical as part of a contiguous area that preserves and/or enhances natural site features. Improvements designed to be incidental to the natural openness of the land (such as, but not limited to, parking area for users of the open space, recreational or community buildings, and athletic fields), as well as the following improvements serving the PUD, shall be permitted within the required open space: access drives, ponds and related accessory structures used for stormwater management, underground utilities, and ground-mounted transformers. Open space set aside pursuant to this subsection, whether or not dedicated to the Township, shall be deemed to be a part of the PUD tract for purposes of compliance with all area, floor area ratio (FAR), density and other bulk and dimensional requirements.

The planned development shall be developed in accordance with the general development plan approved by the Planning Board notwithstanding any provision of N.J.S.A. 40:55D-1 et seq., or of any ordinance or regulation adopted pursuant thereto after the effective date of the approval. The general terms and conditions upon which the general development plan was granted, including but not limited to on-site or off-site requirements, shall not be changed, unless application for modification is made by the developer and approved by the Planning Board pursuant to the requirements of this section.
[2] 
The term of the effect of the general development plan approval shall be determined by the Planning Board using the guidelines set forth in Subsection E(11)(b)[3] below, except that the term of the effect of the approval shall not exceed 20 years from the date upon which the developer received final approval of the first section of the planned unit development.
[3] 
In making its determination regarding the duration of the effect of approval of the general development plan, the Planning Board shall consider the number of dwelling units or amount of nonresidential floor area to be constructed; prevailing economic conditions; the timing schedule to be followed in completing the development and the likelihood of its fulfillment; the developer's capability of completing the proposed development; and the contents of the general development plan and any conditions which the Planning Board attaches to the approval thereof.
(c) 
Modification of proposed schedule. In the event that the developer seeks to modify the proposed timing schedule, such modification shall require the approval of the Planning Board. The Planning Board shall, in deciding whether or not to grant approval of the modification, take into consideration prevailing economic and market conditions, anticipated and actual needs for residential units and nonresidential space within the Township and the region, and the availability and capacity of public facilities to accommodate the proposed development.
(d) 
Variations in location of land uses or increase in density or floor area ratio. The developer shall be required to gain the prior approval of the Planning Board if, after approval of the general development plan, the developer wishes to make any variation in the location of land uses within the planned development or to increase the density of residential development or the floor area ratio of nonresidential development in any section of the planned unit development.
(e) 
Amendment or revision of general development plan; allowable reductions within original approval.
[1] 
Except as provided hereunder, once a general development plan has been approved by the Planning Board, it may be amended or revised only upon application by the developer and approval by the Planning Board.
[2] 
A developer, without violating the terms of the general development plan approval, may, in undertaking any section of the planned unit development, reduce the number of residential units or amounts of nonresidential floor space by no more than 15% or reduce the residential density or nonresidential floor area ratio by no more than 15%.
(f) 
Notice of completion of section of development; notice by municipality of nonfulfillment; hearing; termination of approval; causes.
[1] 
Upon completion of each section of the development as set forth in the approved general development plan, the developer shall notify the administrative officer, by certified mail, as evidence that the developer is fulfilling his obligations under the approved plan. For the purposes of this section, "completion" of any section of the development shall mean that the developer has acquired a certificate of occupancy for every residential unit or every nonresidential structure, as set forth in the approved general development plan and pursuant to Section 15 of the State Uniform Construction Code Statute (N.J.S.A. 52:57D-133). If the Township does not receive such notification at the completion of any section of the development, the Township shall notify the developer, by certified mail, in order to determine whether or not the terms of the approved plan are being complied with.
[2] 
If at any time the Township has cause to believe that the developer is not fulfilling his obligations pursuant to the approved plan, the Township shall notify the developer, by certified mail, and the developer shall have 10 days within which to give evidence that he is fulfilling his obligations pursuant to the approved plan. The Township thereafter shall conduct a hearing to determine whether or not the developer is in violation of the approved plan. If, after such a hearing, the Township finds good cause to terminate the approval, it shall provide written notice of the same to the developer, and the approval shall be terminated 30 days thereafter.
[3] 
In the event that a developer who has general development plan approval does not apply for preliminary site plan approval for the planned development which is the subject of that general development plan approval within five years of the date upon which the general development plan has been approved by the Planning Board, the Township shall have cause to terminate the approval.
(g) 
Termination of approval upon completion of development. In the event that a development which is the subject of an approved general development plan is completed before the end of the term of the approval, the approval shall terminate with the completion of the development. For the purposes of this section, a development shall be considered complete on the date upon which a certificate of occupancy has been issued for the final residential or nonresidential structure in the last section of the development in accordance with the timing schedule set forth in the approved general development plan and the developer has fulfilled all of his obligations pursuant to the approval.
