My supervisor does not have a planning background and she seems to think that PUD's are specifically for saving the developer money in the application process. Pay for one PUD instead of multiple variances, etc. I'm of the mindset that the PUD is a tool to offer developer some measure of flexibility in exchange for some measurable benefit to the development. HELP! How can I bring her around and start to put some teeth into how we apply this?
Yes, I'm a newer professional, and the only one with any planning training where I work.
