PCD  --  Planned Community Development District

The planned community development district (PCD) is intended to accommodate large-scale acreage for residential, commercial, industrial, or other land use developments and activities, including combinations of uses.  It allows for flexibility under controlled conditions not possible with the other defined districts.  The flexibility permitted must demonstrate that the final development will be compatible with the intents and purposes of this title and the goals and policies of the comprehensive plan, and do not compromise public health, safety, and welfare.  A PCD should include design features to ensure that the PCD is integrated with the surrounding neighborhood through features such as transition densities, external boundary buffering, and pedestrian and street connectivity.  The PCD district is limited to unified, comprehensive planned developments which are of substantial public benefit, consistent with the holding capacity of the land, and conform with and enhance the policies of the comprehensive plan.
