A. Review Requirements. Subject to filing of an administrative permit application, the Planning Director may approve minor alterations or additions to existing uses or other minor projects not otherwise exempt, including facade modifications; minor site improvements; and additions, accessory, or replacement structures that involve less than a 25 percent increase from existing square footage, or less than an additional 1,000 square feet, whichever is greater, and providing the height is substantially unchanged, provided the Planning Director makes a written determination that resources of concern do not occur on the area of development, or due to the existing character of the property or the size, scope, or nature of the proposed project, resources of concern will not be affected by the project. The Planning Director may require applicants to provide information addressing such considerations.
B. Action on Administrative Permit Application. If the findings set forth at subsection A of this section cannot be made, the Planning Director shall deny administrative review of the application and the project shall require a conditional use permit. (Ord. 1111, 2018)
