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.
Alternative Land Use Regulation (ALUR) District
The City of Pflugerville offers an alternative to a traditional zoning district, which is similar to other jurisdiction’s Planned Unit Developments. An ALUR District requires a minimum of 50 acres and establishes a specific regulating plan and document for implementation. An ALUR will follow the zoning process once both parties are generally comfortable with the project. To determine if an ALUR is an appropriate district for your project, please contact us at (512) 990-6300 or Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
