The zoning of property as Planned Unit Development (“PUD”) permits the development as one project of areas of land that are sufficiently large to allow a site design for a number of structures or uses.
   (A)   Establishment. A Planned Unit Development District may be established only for areas containing 25 or more acres of land. In determining whether to establish a Planned Unit Development District the City Council shall consider the recommendations of the zoning commission and shall further consider whether the planned unit development is an effective and unified treatment of the development possibilities in the area within the district, is consistent with the city's comprehensive plan, is compatible with land uses surrounding the district, is consistent with subdivision regulations, is consistent with general development standards, and is consistent with the masonry requirements of this chapter.
   (B)   Application.  An applicant for designation of an area of land as a Planned Unit Development District shall submit with the application a general schematic land use and density plan identifying proposed general uses, densities, major open spaces, circulation and access features, and a statement indicating proposed phasing of development and the projected timing of each phase. The application shall be accompanied by a fee in an amount established by the City Council.
   (C)   Designation.
      (1)   Amendment of the zoning ordinance to designate a Planned Unit Development District shall be done in accordance with the procedures established in this chapter and in the Tex. Loc. Gov’t Code, Ch. 211.
      (2)   The City Council shall establish such conditions to apply in any Planned Unit Development District which it deems appropriate.
