Editor's Note — Ord. no. 2002 §1, adopted October 2, 2007, repealed sections 23-66.1 — 23.66.10 and enacted new provisions set out herein. Former sectioons 23-66.1 — 23.66.10 derived from ord. no. 1721 §1, 10-7-2003; ord. no. 1882 §1, 1-3-2006.
[Ord. No. 2002 §1, 10-2-2007]
The purpose of the Planned Residential District ("PRD") is to allow a less restrictive relationship among various buildings, structures and open spaces in planned building groups on large parcels of land, as long as public health, safety and welfare are preserved. Freedom to design includes flexible standards concerning lot and yard dimensions. This district is further intended to preserve steep slopes, floodways, significant woodlands and other sensitive natural lands. Larger-scale site planning for residential and supporting uses should produce high quality buildings and open spaces while preserving the best environmental features. Internal roads and drives should complement the City's system of arterial and collector roads.
