Many properties in Wheat Ridge are part of a planned development zone district, including planned residential (PRD), planned commercial (PCD), and planned industrial (PID) districts. Each planned development has its own list of permitted uses and development standards.
There are two distinct steps in establishing a planned development. Step one is approval of an outline development plan (ODP) that establishes the planned development zoning designation, permitted uses, underlying development parameters, and general design concepts. Step two is approval of a specific development plan (SDP) to provide specific site plans, building elevations, and civil documents. The SDP and ODP are both approved at public hearings.
