The amendment to the Planned Development District formerly known as Game on is a change in the zoning text and development standards. The purpose of the Amendment is to provide clarity in specific permitted uses and to implement the vision as outlined in the City’s 2019 update to the Comprehensive Plan as a Regional Mixed-Use District. The previous Development Standards of the PDD formerly known as Game On, was focused on a large private recreational enterprise with supplemental uses being commercial and residential. The current proposed amendment is centered on Main Street-Style commercial and residential uses that will support and sustain the commercial areas. site plan

Windell Woods is a 52.7 acre planned development located between Dam and Gardendale Roads. Uses include a mix of residential including single-family and carriage-style homes as well as 40,00 square feet of neighborhood commercial. Total density permitted within the residential site would be 2.5 gross units per acre up to a maximum of 145 homes.
This is very compatible to the adjacent and nearby residential planned developments of Cadence and Lake Ridge. In addition, the applicant has elected to provide, as one of the recreational amenities, a paved multi-use trail from the edge of the development adjacent to Gold Hill Middle School and along Gardendale Road to Gladiola Way.
The purpose of the Planned Development District is to promote the efficient use of land, allow flexible application of development controls, allow various densities and land uses, provide enhanced recreational opportunities, protect surrounding property, and protect the natural features of the site.
The land uses and standards outlined in the PDD Master Plan and development documents serve to accomplish this objective through the range and varying intensity of the different uses. In addition, the construction of the multi-use trail will assist the City by implementing the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
