Definition of Planned Unit Development (PUD):
Orange County PUD's:
This is a type of community zoning classification that is planned and developed within Orange County that contains both residential and non-residential buildings (such as shopping centers). Open land, such as parks and green areas, is also often included in the zones. In order to make certain communities more attractive and self sufficient, city planners will provide them with both residential and professional zoning. This allows for the development of homes, shopping centers and/or light industry, as well as recreation areas such as parks. Areas such as these are valuable in that they provide their residents with both housing and a place to work. PUD’s are very common in South Orange County.
