(a) Planned Development Overlay Zone Designation. A planned development approved in accordance with this chapter after the effective date of the ordinance adopting this chapter shall have a zoning designation of Planned Development (PD) overlay zone. The PD overlay zone designation will be reflected by a "(PD)" suffix qualifier on the underlying zoning designation for the parcel. For example, an approved planned development in a two-family residential zoning district would be classified as "R-2 (PD)".

(b) Authorized Uses. Planned development overlays shall incorporate the permitted land uses and development standards of the underlying zoning district pursuant to code and the land use table in SMC 10.28.020; provided, however, that approval of a planned development overlay shall modify and supersede the regulations of the underlying zoning district as provided in this chapter and the approved planned development plan.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the underlying zoning requirements, a planned development overlay may permit all proposed uses and developments under this chapter that are allowed by the comprehensive plan and that do not exceed the maximum densities in the comprehensive plan.

(1) Residential planned development overlays are permitted in the LDSF, R-1, R-2, and R-3 zones; provided, that:

(A) No more than forty percent of the number of dwelling units in a planned development in the LDSF or R-1 zone may consist of two-family or multiple-family dwellings; and

(B) No more than forty percent of the number of dwelling units in a planned development in the R-2 or R-3 zones may consist of single-family dwellings.

(2) Reserved.

(c) Extant Planned Development Zoning Districts. Existing planned developments, as of the effective date of the ordinance adopting this chapter, are and shall remain separate zoning districts created under the previously repealed Chapter 10.24 SMC ("PD Districts"), as indicated on the official zoning map adopted under SMC 10.04.010, and shall:

(1) Retain the authorized uses considered to be conforming in the PD district; and

(2) Permit major or minor modifications only within the existing approved boundaries of the PD district. (Ord. 1995 § 1, 2016.)
