My New Port Richey Buyer Asked - What's a PUD?
A Planned Unit Development (PUD) must be approved through a special process designed to allow flexibility in zoning to encourage diverse land use and development.
In residential use PUDs incorporate a mixture of different types of units: single-family residential two-family units and multiple-family condos or townhomes to form a mixed neighborhood plan which may also include schools, shopping areas, and churches: and sometimes commercial or light industry. PUDs can also be used commercially to allow for different types of commercial/industrial usage.
PUDs do not have any restrictions on size and can be one small neighborhood to huge neighborhoods that may be larger than some towns--in fact may become town-like. For instance, Trinity in our New Port Richey FL area.
In a nutshell: By using the PUD designation, a developer may not be bound by the normal zoning regulations in place. However, the approval process for a PUD is quite lengthy and complex. They must come up with a fully developed plan that is submitted to the proper zoning authorities and then goes to various departments to be torn apart or approved (often with modifications). It can often take years before a plan is fully approved.
Examples of PUDs in the New Port Richey-FL area:
Timber Greens, River Ridge, Trinity, Heritage Lake.
Photos are top is singlefamily residential, second is a duplex style - 2 family. Third: townhomes. All can be in one subdivision.
PUDs usually have deed restrictions and Homeowners Association Fees; some may have a gated residential area, clubhouses and pools, golf courses, and parks or playgrounds incorporated into the overall plan. A PUD is usually a very attractive area to live in and most of the time can be relied on to stay attractive.
