LDC 18-0370 is a privately initiated Land Development Code text amendment that proposes to introduce a Community Quality Enhancement Option into the existing Planned Village regulations found in LDC Part 5.04.00, which implement the Planned Villages policies of the Comprehensive Plan for properties designated Residential Planned -2 (RP-2) in the Future Land Use Element.
This LDC text amendment will be reviewed and processed together with a companion Comprehensive Plan Amendment (CPA) 17-21.

The current maximum density of the RP-2 category is two (2) dwelling units per acre.
