P-1 Off-Street Parking District:
Allows parking lots and structures. Bulk and setback regulations apply to structures. This zone is intended to provide needed business parking without the expansion of the business zone; e.g. a buffer between business and residential uses. Requires visual barriers adjacent to residential uses.
PUD Planned Unit Development:
PUD is a form of development generally characterized by a unified site design for clustering buildings and providing common open-space, density increases, and a mix of building types and land uses. The process involves site plan review, during which the city agencies and neighborhood residents have considerable input in determining the nature of the development. In effect, any PUD is a specific zone district for a specific area, including precise regulations written by the applicant, and when approved by City Council, is enforced by the city. It allows maximum flexibility during the planning stage and maximum assurance that exactly what is proposed will be developed.
PRV Platte River Valley Zone District:
This district is intended to promote and encourage diversified land uses and to integrate the district’s unique geographic location and setting, amenities of view, transportation linkages and open space. A variety of land uses are permitted to facilitate new development, allow for the reuse of eligible historic structures and to complement development in adjacent neighborhoods and downtown. New residential development and open-space is encouraged. Regulatory flexibility is provided to facilitate development responsive to current and future market conditions, and to encourage creativity in the development of the Platte River Valley. Subarea boundaries are delineated on the PRV zoning map. A subarea plan, including preliminary design guidelines, is required for all or part of the subarea to be used as a framework for private and public development projects. Rules and criteria adopted by the Planning Board govern the content and requirements of subarea plans. Plans for any given subarea must conform with the subarea zoning standards enacted by City Council.
CCN Cherry Creek North:
Uses are similar to the B-3 district except that residential development is not permitted on the ground floor of any building. Proposed developments are reviewed by the CCN Design Advisory Board (DAB) for compliance with the CCN district guidelines. The goals of the district are to encourage a mixture of uses and to encourage low-scale, small lot development that reinforces and enhances the eclectic urban character of the area. Floor area premiums are available for open space and underground parking. Off-street parking requirements for retail uses is reduced and ground level residential development is not allowed.
Gateway Airport Gateway Zone District:
The airport gateway is intended to provide a wide variety of compatible uses. A mix of residential, business, hotel and high technology based industry is permitted. The streets design is a neo-traditional grid system. Development will be guided by development and special review. This is the first district to include environmental controls in the zoning ordinance.
OD Overlay Zone District:
These districts overlay existing standard zone districts. They are generally more restrictive than the underlying zone and control dimensional and operational requirements of uses, but do not add uses to the underlying zone. Please refer to the zoning ordinance for the specific requirements of each overlay zone.
