The methods and procedures for implementation and administration of the Sycamore Canyon Specific Plan are prescribed as follows:
.010 Implementation. The Specific Plan shall be implemented through the processing of site plans in conjunction with tract maps and parcel maps for residential development areas, and in conjunction with issuance of building permits for commercial projects and other proposed developments for which a tract map or parcel map is not required by law. The site plans may be prepared separately from the tentative subdivision maps, or may be submitted on the same document, provided the map(s) submitted are in sufficient detail to determine conformance with the Specific Plan.
.020 Site Plan Approval. The site plan(s) for a particular development area, or portion thereof, shall be reviewed at a duly noticed public hearing by the Planning Commission, in the case of a residential tract map or a commercial development, or by the City Engineer, in the case of a residential parcel map, for consistency with the Specific Plan and this chapter. Notice of said hearings shall be given at the same time and in the same manner as specified for hearings for tract maps and parcel maps in the Municipal Code, in the case of residential development areas; or in the same time and manner as specified for variances and conditional use permits in the Municipal Code, in the case of commercial developments or other proposed developments for which a tract map or parcel map is not required by law. Subject to minor boundary variation as authorized by subsection 18.102.020.040 of this chapter, and density transfers as authorized by subsection 18.102.020.050 of this chapter, if the site plan is found to be consistent with the Specific Plan and this chapter, the Planning Commission or City Engineer shall approve the site plan, and direct that the Zoning Map of the City be amended when necessary. The decision of the Planning Commission or the City Engineer shall be final, subject to appeal or review by the City Council, in the same time and manner as provided for appeal from decisions of the advisory agency on tract maps or parcel maps, as set forth in the Municipal Code.
.030 Site Plan Consistency. If any changes are proposed to an approved site plan regarding the location or alteration of any use or structure shown on an approved site plan, a revised plan may be submitted to the Planning Director for approval. If the Planning Director, or his or her designee, determines that the proposed revision complies with the provisions of the Specific Plan and the general intent of the approved site plan, the revised site plan may be approved by the Planning Director, or his or her designee, without resubmittal to the approval process described in subsection 18.102.030.020. Said decision shall be final, unless appealed to the City Council within ten (10) days from the date of such decision.
.040 Specific Plan Amendments. Amendments to the Specific Plan shall be processed in accordance with Chapter 18.72 (Specific Plans). (Ord. 4909 § 1 (part); March 1, 1988: Ord. 5920 § 1 (part); June 8, 2004.)
