While GPH doesn't appear to have impressive codes, they do seem to allow each zone to suit multiple purposes which may or may not have an impact on the community.

PUD Planned Unit Development: PUD is a form of development generally characterized by a unified site design for clustering buildings and providing common open-space, density increases, and a mix of building types and land uses. The process involves site plan review, during which the city agencies and neighborhood residents have considerable input in determining the nature of the development. In effect, any PUD is a specific zone district for a specific area, including precise regulations written by the applicant, and when approved by City Council, is enforced by the city. It allows maximum flexibility during the planning stage and maximum assurance that exactly what is proposed will be developed.

Building floor area cannot exceed 50% of the site area; however, office floor area may equal site area. Some uses are conditional uses.
