Most subdivisions in Louisville are regulated by a Planned Unit Development (PUD) zoning overlay. This overlay is a flexible zoning instrument that modifies the underlying zoning district regulations.  PUDs are available for review through the City's Online Map.  For questions regarding the zoning of a particular property or for information such as setbacks, lot coverage and building height regulations, please contact the Planning Department directly at 303.335.4592. Please include the address of the property in question.
