Planned Unit Developments

Auburn, Maine has recently implemented a zoning code change that allows Planned Unit Development (PUD). The PUD can be located in residential, recreation/residential, commercial, and industrial zones provided that public sewer is available. The code outlines the permitted uses of each PUD zone and discusses dwelling units, off-street parking, design, density, and more. To make it easier to establish a PUD, the district allows changes in the dimensional requirements typically established for each zone. Additionally, the planning board can change the off-street parking requirements to meet developer needs. The PUD also is required to reserve open space for enjoyment of all PUD occupants.
