(A)   The filing of a plan for a PUD shall be considered an amendment to the official zoning map for the town and shall meet the requirements for amendments specified in this chapter and all applicable land use regulations for the town.
   (B)   An application for rezoning to the PUD District may be considered simultaneously with, or to be combined with, preliminary plat approval as allowed by this chapter and Ch. 193 of this code of ordinances; if preliminary plat approval is requested simultaneously by the applicant, said rezoning application for the Planned Unit Development District shall contain all information required for a preliminary plat and rezone approval.
      (1)   Applications for special uses and development standards variances from the Board of Zoning Appeals shall not be necessary when proposing a PUD.
      (2)   Amendments, deviations or other changes from the approved PUD shall be processed as a zoning amendment with a public hearing by the Plan Commission and final approval by the Town Council; consequently, any addition of uses, change of plans or increase in size or density of an approved PUD shall require a separate application for amendment of the original approved PUD and shall follow the same process as other rezoning requests to change the zoning map incorporated by reference into this chapter.
      (3)   Waivers of Ch. 193 of this code of ordinances from the Plan Commission shall not be necessary when proposing a PUD.
      (4)   The Plan Commission shall review the proposals prior to submitting a recommendation to the Town Council. The Plan Commission may recommend reasonable conditions to the Town Council to protect neighboring properties or uses.
      (5)   Approval by the Town Council pursuant to I.C. 36-7-4-608 constitutes creation of the Planned Unit Development District. The Town Council may impose conditions on the approval of a PUD, require a bond, or allow or require a written commitment in accordance with I.C. 36-7-4-1512.
