The purpose of these planned residential development (PRD) regulations is to permit residential development which is more creative and imaginative than is generally possible under conventional zoning district controls and subdivision requirements. Further, these regulations are intended to promote more-economical and -efficient use of the land while providing a compatible blend of housing types, amenities and community facilities of high quality, oriented to the specific development site and preserving the natural scenic qualities of open space.

Refile the application for final approval without the variations objected; or
(2) 
File a written request with the Board of Commissioners that it hold a public hearing on the application for final approval.
B.
