Specific Use Permit and Special Districts
The land use table in Subchapters 4 & 5 of the Unified Development Code identifies land uses that may be considered in a particular district through a Specific Use Permit (S) or Special District (SD). Both require site-specific information, conveyed through a site plan, which will be initially reviewed by staff and considered by the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council. A Specific Use Permit and Special District request follows the zoning process as outlined above.
Planned Unit Development (PUD) District
The City of Pflugerville offers an alternative to a traditional zoning district, known as a Planned Unit Development (PUD). A PUD district requires a minimum of 20 acres and establishes a specific regulating plan and document for implementation. A PUD will follow the zoning process once both parties are generally comfortable with the project. To determine if a PUD is an appropriate district for your project, please contact us at (512) 990-6300 or Email us at email@example.com.
