19.16.020 Application of requirements
The requirements of this Chapter shall be considered a minimum, except in those cases where otherwise noted (i.e. specified ranges or specific numbers).
This requirement shall take effect when building permits are required for the following situations:
(1) All new construction on vacant parcels.
(2) Any substantial modification to an existing site or structure in which the estimated construction cost is greater than Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00) in either a single application or any number of applications within a ten (10) year period.
The required landscaping percentage shall be strictly followed; however, the Planning Commission may lessen the percentage requirement after the petitioner has met with staff to discuss the problem and presented justification for a lesser percentage. Exceptions should be based on a physical hardship associated with the property and should be limited in their application.
