Tiny House Planned Unit Development (THPUD) means an area of land developed as a single entity or in approved stages in conformity with a final development plan by a developer or group of developers acting jointly, which is totally planned to provide for a variety of residential uses and common open space.

The THPUD zoning classification is designed to allow an applicant to submit a proposal for consideration and to allow the board of county commissioners to approve any proposal which it believes to be in the best interest of the public health, safety and welfare, along with any conditions or limitations thereon which the board of county commissioners deems advisable. Rezoning to the THPUD zoning classification shall be an entirely voluntary procedure to be pursued only at the option of the applicant. Approval of the THPUD zoning classification rests with the board of county commissioners, based upon its determination that the proposed development is in the best interests of the county.

The minimum size for a THPUD shall be 0.5 acres. The maximum size for a THPUD shall be 10.0 acres.   Thirty percent of the gross site acreage shall be delineated as tracts for common recreation and open space.  Read 62-1471 for all the rules of construction (Code Link above).
