A. 
Introduction. The granting of a Planned Urban Development "PUD" shall be in accordance with the procedure set forth below and in no way should be construed as an automatic right by the applicant. The granting of a "PUD" is the legal responsibility of the Ste. Genevieve Board of Aldermen upon recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission. The "PUD" shall be a "floating zone" and shall not be attached to any land until such land is affirmatively rezoned as a "PUD" consistent with the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance of Ste. Genevieve.
B. 
Purpose Of The District. A "PUD" is intended to permit developments that will provide a desirable and stable environment in harmony with that of the surrounding areas; to permit flexibility that will encourage a more creative approach in the development of land, will result in a more efficient, aesthetic and desirable use of area; to permit flexibility in design, placement of buildings, use of open spaces, circulation facilities and off-street parking areas; and to best utilize the potential of sites characterized by special features of geography, topography, size and shape.
C. 
Minimum Area. The area required to establish a "PUD" shall be a minimum of five (5) acres in all zoning districts. In calculating the minimum area for a "PUD", the measurements shall not include the area of any existing dedicated streets or alleys.
D. 
Permitted Uses Limitations. The Board of Aldermen shall designate each approved "PUD" as either a "PUD A", "PUD R-1", "PUD R-2", "PUD R-3", "PUD C-1" or "PUD C-2". Such designation shall limit the general range of uses permitted in the designated "PUD" to the range of uses which are permitted in the corresponding zoning districts as set forth in the table below:
"PUD" DESIGNATION
PERMITTED USES AS PROVIDED IN CORRESPONDING DISTRICTS:
"PUD A"
"R-1", "R-2", "C-1", "C-2", "C-3", "I-1", "I-2"
"PUD R-1"

"PUD C-2"
"C-2", "C-3", "I-1", "I-2"
E. 
Development Density.
1. 
Calculations of density. The Board of Aldermen shall approve the maximum density allowed in any "PUD". The Board of Aldermen shall only approve a maximum density compatible and in harmony with existing surrounding densities or future densities indicated by the City's Comprehensive Plan. In calculating the density for a tract of land, the applicant is encouraged to consult the City's Comprehensive Plan to assure compatibility and harmony with surrounding densities. If density bonuses are requested under this Subsection, the applicant is expected to document all site amenities or improvements for the City's review and consideration.
2. 
Density bonuses. To encourage utilization of the "PUD" technique, an applicant may be eligible for a maximum increase of thirty percent (30%) in the total "floor area ratio" over that which would otherwise be allowed. For the purposes of this Subsection, "floor area ratio" shall mean the gross floor area of all buildings in the "PUD" divided by the land area of the "PUD". Such density increases may be granted only by the Board of Aldermen according to the following criteria:
MAXIMUM PERCENTAGE INCREASE
DESIGN ELEMENT
5%
For each contiguous five percent (5%) area of "PUD" consisting of not less than one-half (½) acre devoted to improved usable open space.
5%
Provision of pedestrian ways (pedestrian, bicycle paths).
5%
Provision of high quality tree and shrub planting, including peripheral and interior screen planting and fencing, landscaping and parking lots and the use of existing trees in the plan. This provision is in addition to the required screening requirements.
5%
Creative building site designs and groupings that take advantage of natural terrain and minimize future water runoff and erosion problems. Basins and water features included in the overall design are encouraged.
10%
Recreational facilities (i.e., swimming pool, tennis court and community center or club building. The Board of Aldermen shall approve the density bonus for recreational facilities up to ten percent (10%) upon consideration of the size, quantity and type of facilities provided.
F. 
Management And Use Of Open Space In A Planned Urban Development. Note: This Section shall be read in conjunction with the Subdivision Regulations of the City of Ste. Genevieve.
1. 
In a "PUD", all land not subdivided into lots or used as the building site for multiple-family dwellings, for public roads, alleys, privately maintained off-street parking facilities, drainage easements, utility easements, potential or existing school sites, drainage canals or detention basins shall be deemed "open space" and be disposed of in either of the following methods:
a.

(2) 
The Board of Aldermen may also require any such dedicated land to be improved as usable space for recreational purposes before accepting any dedication.

A notation shall be placed on the recorded plat identifying all property dedicated to the City together with the stated purpose for which the property was dedicated to the City.
(4) 
Every parcel of open space dedicated to the City shall have frontage along a public road.
b. 
Ownership by a non-profit homeowners association or other legally responsible entity. The Board of Aldermen may require that ownership of open space in a "PUD" be held by a non-profit homeowners' association or other legally responsible entity. Open space held by such an association shall, at minimum, be open to residents, patrons and employees who may live, shop or work within the "PUD" boundaries. The association shall maintain the common land and any buildings, recreation facilities, sidewalks, private utilities, sewers or private streets upon such common land. The association may levy among all owners of lots and all owners of condominium units for the purpose of raising funds to:

Maintain the common land.
(2) 
Pay real estate taxes assessed on the common land.
(3) 
Pay any insurance premiums on the common land.

In conjunction with the submittal of an application for a "PUD", the applicant shall submit a site development plan for review and approval. The site development plan shall comply with the requirements of Subsection (G)(4) below. Additional information pertinent to the specific development proposed may also be required on the site development plan. The application and site development plan shall first be referred to the Planning and Zoning Commission for review and report.
b. 
Upon receipt of the report of the Planning and Zoning Commission, the Board of Aldermen shall hold a public hearing to consider the proposed "PUD" and shall provide legal notice in compliance with Section 405.230 of the City's Zoning Ordinance.
c. 
In reviewing the site development plan, the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Board of Aldermen shall consider the following criteria:

In addition to the foregoing, the Board of Aldermen shall consider any other written recommendations deemed essential by the Planning and Zoning Commission for review and consideration of the "PUD".
G.
