Comprehensive Design Plan (CDP)

Comprehensive Design Plans (CDP) are the second phase of a three-phase review process when a development proposal is in a comprehensive design zone (CDZ). CDPs establish the general location, distribution, and size of proposed structures and roadways and describe various development standards and guidelines governing the property. CDPs also describe proposed public benefit features to justify the development density and intensity and ensure the development will not be an unreasonable burden on public facilities. A Homeowner's Minor Amendment to a CDP is required for making home improvements that are not in conformance with the approved CDP.
