Modification of grading controls
For any development, enlargement or site alteration on a Tier II site, the City Planning Commission may authorize variations in the grading controls set forth in Section 105-34.
In order to grant such authorization, the Commission shall find that:
(a) the development, enlargement or site alteration is not feasible without such modifications, or that the modifications will permit a development, enlargement or site alteration that satisfies the purposes of this Chapter;
(b) such modification is the least modification required to achieve the purpose for which it is granted;
(c) the modification has minimal impact on the existing natural topography and vegetation and blends harmoniously with it;
(d) the modification will not disturb the drainage pattern and soil conditions of the area;
(e) the modification does not impair the essential character of the surrounding area; and
(f) the benefits to the surrounding area from the modification outweigh any disadvantages that may be incurred thereby in the area.
