Urban Design Overlays (UDOs)

Antioch / Priest Lake has 2 Urban Design Overlays. An Urban Design Overlay, or UDO, is a zoning tool that requires specific design standards for development in a designated area. A UDO is used to either protect the pre-existing character of the area or to create a character that would not otherwise be ensured by the development standards in the base zoning district. UDOs overlay the current base zoning and allow for development standards above and beyond those in the base zoning.

Specific Plans

Antioch / Priest Lake has 3 Specific Plan Districts. Generally known as “SP” zoning, refers to a new type of base zoning district, not an overlay, which is not subject to traditional zoning districts’ development standards. Under SP zoning, design standards established for that specific development are written into the zone change ordinance.

Developers who use SP zoning must still follow historic and redevelopment guidelines, subdivision and storm water regulations, and the goals and objectives of the General Plan.
