URBAN DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT (UD)

§ 155.190  PURPOSE.

     (A)     The Urban Development District is designed to permit in certain areas of the county maximum use flexibility in response to existing conditions and characteristics existing at the adoption of zoning.  It also recognizes areas existing prior to zoning which have been impacted by a variety of incompatible uses.  Market and use flexibility mandates a need to protect existing development from the adversities of “mixed use.”  The objective of this district is to maximize land use flexibility and minimize land use conflicts in the process.

     (B)     All applicants proposing to rezone property to the UD classification will, instead, be required to request a PD for the appropriate zoning class for the particular proposed use.  The ability to request the rezoning of property to UD is only permitted when the request is an extension of an existing UD District.
