What is a Planned Development District?

A Planned Development District (“PDD”) is a unique zoning district created for a given geographic region to allow for development standards that are modified from the standards of the City’s conventional zoning districts.  The purpose of the PDD is to promote and encourage innovative development that is sensitive to surrounding land uses and to the natural environment.  Each PDD adopts modified development standards that are unique to the given PDD, thus the City’s Unified Development Code does not include the modified development standards of the different PDDs that exist in the City of Schertz.  A separate PDD development standards document is approved by the City Council and is adopted by Ordinance.  Development within the PDD area has to comply with both the development standards that are specified in the PDD development standards document and the City’s Unified Development Code.
