The owners of Vermilion Creek have submitted a proposal to revise the approved Preliminary Development Plan to reduce the amount of commercial development required and adjust the residential unit totals. 

We want to hear from you! Please view the submitted proposal and share your thoughts, concerns and ask questions about the project. All written comments received will be shared with the owners and become part of the permanent public record attached to the report submitted to Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council prior to their decision about the project.

  • NOTE: The Vermilion Creek PUD has been in place since 2004. Other than the establishment of the Parker Jordan Centennial Open Space, no other development activity has occurred.
  • NOTE: The areas noted as Open Space Parcel (80.31 AC) and Residential Multi-Family District (27.55 AC) have been rezoned to Open Space and Recreation (OSR) and are no longer a part of the PUD.
  • NOTE: Tagawa Gardens is not part of the existing PUD nor is it proposed to become a part of the PUD or future redevelopment as a part of this proposal.
  • NOTE: A Traffic Impact Study (TIS) is not available at this time as the developer is in the midst of the study. Once one becomes available, it will be shared with the City and members of the public.

After receiving neighborhood comments, the Preliminary Development Plan Amendment will be submitted to City Staff for review (typically 3 review cycles). Once the applicant has addressed all comments for City Staff, it will be forwarded to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council for consideration.

Was does Planned Unit Development (PUD) mean?

A PUD is the name for the zoning district of the Subject Property. Each PUD is unique to the Subject Property, with its own list of allowable uses, densities, setbacks, development standards, etc.

What does Preliminary Development Plan (PDP) mean?

A PDP is the document that notes the zoning rules (list of allowable uses, densities, setbacks, development standards, etc.) for the Subject Property.

What are the general changes the developer is proposing to the PDP?

  • Reduce the number of minimum/maximum allowable residential dwelling units, and the number of minimum/maximum allowable commercial square footage;
  • Reconfigure the general vehicular/pedestrian connectivity within the PDP area and to the Parker Jordan Centennial Open Space; and,
  • Revise the location of the subdistricts within the PDP.

Written public comments, after a formal application is submitted, become part of the permanent public record and are attached to the report submitted to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council prior to them making a recommendation or decision about the project. City Staff and decision makers will take all comments received into account and work in good faith with the owner-developers to reasonably mitigate anticipated impacts associated with the redevelopment. Legally, the decision of whether to approve or deny the requested amendments must be based upon the approval criteria of the Land Development Code.

Public hearings are required by the City’s Land Development Code (LDC) for certain development applications. The purpose of the public hearing is to obtain public testimony or comment before significant decisions are made. Any written or recorded comments on these development applications will be shared with the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council.
