Authorized minor deviations from an approved physical development permit, use permit, or development option plan are changes that appear necessary in light of technical or engineering considerations first discovered during development or use that were not reasonably anticipated during the initial approval process.
When Is This Required?
A minor deviation may be approved by the Planning Director pursuant to the process for a Zoning Compliance Verification Sec. 8.6.2. upon finding that it:
- Complies with the standards of the current LDRs;
- Does not include reductions in the amount of open space set aside or required resource protection; and
- Does not include increases in the amount of building floor area
- How Long: Up to 45 days after application deemed sufficient
- Who Decides:
- Final Decision: Planning Director
- Minor Deviations are not applicable to:
- Formal Interpretations; Zoning Compliance Verifications; LDR Text Amendments; Zoning Map Amendments; all Relief from the LDRs; exempt land divisions; and Boundary Adjustments. A change to one of these approvals shall be achieved through application for a new approval.
- A physical development permit or development option plan for which all approved development has been completed shall not be amended. Redevelopment of such a development shall be achieved through application for a new approval.
- The Notarized Letter of Authorization is needed when the Applicant is not the the owner of the property.
