(1) 
Variety of housing types: provide the opportunity for the creation of a wider variety of housing types in the Town, ranging from single-family detached to single-family attached units (townhouses) and designated to serve the present and the future housing needs of those persons working or living in the Town of Wilson.
(2) 
Creative use of large tracts: encourage the creative use of large tracts located on state or County highways so as to promote the establishment of a more desirable living environment than would be possible through their subdivision in accordance with the conventional standards established elsewhere in this chapter.
(3) 
Flexibility of design and development: permit flexibility of design and development in such a way as to promote superior land planning design, greater economy, efficiency and convenience in the arrangement of land uses and their supporting infrastructure, preserve open space and protect floodplains and other natural features.
(4) 
Service and utilities: encourage orderly and well-planned development of a scale and location that will make it feasible to construct a comprehensive package of supporting utilities, services and facilities, active and passive recreation facilities, a stormwater control and retention system, etc., so as to achieve developments which are environmentally, physically, visually and economically superior.
(5) 
Traffic circulation: encourage orderly development of sites with substantial frontage on state and County highways to provide safe, efficient access and traffic circulation.
(6) 
Master Plan: promote a development pattern in harmony with the objectives of the Town's Master Plan.

(a) 
Need for personal privacy. Visual privacy shall be preserved for residents through the proper design of rear yards and/or patio spaces. Proper screening through the use of vegetation, fencing and partially enclosed patios shall be provided. Audio privacy shall be maintained by requiring proper standards for solid party walls that will satisfactorily limit sound transmission between adjoining dwelling units.
(b) 
Need for maintaining the scale of building to ensure compatibility with natural and man-made surroundings. Four dwelling units shall be the normal maximum permitted per building to ensure that attached and semidetached units will be compatible in scale with the character of surrounding development and to ensure a pleasant environment for the residents of such units through maximizing views and by providing a close relationship to immediately adjacent open space at the sides of units as well as to the front and rear. The Planning Board may, where it deems necessary, limit the number of dwelling units per building to less than four and may permit up to eight units in circumstances where building layout or natural terrain conditions can help assure aesthetic design, adequate private and semiprivate open spaces and significant views.
[1]
Editor's Note: See Ch. 112, Subdivision of Land.
(9) 
Layout design considerations; need for preserving existing neighborhood identity and community scale. The Planning Board shall consider the layout of small neighborhoods or clusters within the development, each having some open space immediately surrounding it, as a goal of proper site planning so that a massive concentration of units with little or no differentiation can be avoided and so that the character of the PUD will match the character of the neighborhood in which it is located.
(10) 
Vehicular circulation system and traffic access. All streets and driveways within a PUD shall be designed to adequately serve their intended traffic function and the anticipated volume of traffic of the development. Direct access shall be provided by a state or County highway. Major traffic circulation streets which connect to the various sections of the PUD and provide access to the highways shall be designated collector roadways and shall be paved to a width of not less than 20 feet unless the Planning Board and Town Highway Superintendent, after reviewing the traffic circulation systems, determine that a different width is necessary. All other vehicle circulation elements shall be designated as minor roadways and shall be paved to a width of not less than 18 feet unless the Planning Board and Town Highway Superintendent, after reviewing the traffic circulation system, determine that a different width is necessary.
(11) 
Pedestrian circulation system. In each PUD, a pedestrian circulation system shall be designed and installed in addition to the vehicular circulation system, which is sufficient for the needs of PUD residents. Such a system might be composed of a combination of paved and unpaved walkways and bikeways of appropriate width, design and location to serve their intended function.
