   .030   Final Site Plan Approval.  Final site plans may be submitted in phases or portions of phases.
      (a)   Phase 1 Final Site Plan Approval.  The final site plan for Phase 1 (Development Areas 1 and 2) (as defined in Section III F. of the Specific Plan), or portion thereof, (hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Phase 1 final site plan") shall be submitted to the Planning Director for approval, prior to issuing a building permit for Phase 1, or portion thereof.  If the Planning Director determines that the Phase 1  is in substantial conformance with the master site plan (Exhibit 7a to the Specific Plan), then the Phase 1 final site plan shall be approved by the Planning Director, without submission to the Planning Commission for review and approval.  The decision of the Planning Director shall be final, unless appealed to the Planning Commission within ten (10) days from the date of such decision.  If the Planning Director determines that the Phase 1 final site plan is not in substantial conformance with the master site plan, then the Phase 1 final site plan shall be reviewed by the Planning Commission, at a duly noticed hearing, for substantial conformance with the Specific Plan and this chapter.  Notice of said hearing shall be given at the same time and in the same manner as specified for hearings for variances and conditional use permits in the Anaheim Municipal Code.  Subject to nonmaterial boundary and gross leasable square footage variations, as authorized by subsection 18.108.020.020 of this chapter, if the final site plan is found to be in substantial conformance with the Specific Plan and this chapter, the Planning Commission shall approve the final site plan.  The decision of the Planning Commission shall be final, unless appealed to the City Council within ten (10) days from the date of such decision.  If the Planning Commission determines that the Phase 1 final site plan is not in substantial conformance with the master site plan, then the Specific Plan will have to be amended pursuant to Section 18.108.050, in order to obtain approval of the Phase 1 final site plan.
      (b)   Final Site Plan for Other Phases.  Other than for Phase 1, the final site plan(s) for a particular development area, or portion thereof, shall be reviewed at a duly noticed public hearing by the Planning Commission.  Notice of said hearing shall be given at the same time and in the same manner as specified for hearings for variances and conditional use permits in the Anaheim Municipal Code.  Subject to minor boundary and gross leasable square footage variations, as authorized by subsection 18.108.020.020 of this chapter, if the final site plan is found to be consistent with the Specific Plan and this chapter, and provided that the Planning Commission finds that the final site plan will not be detrimental to the health, safety and general welfare of the citizens of the City of Anaheim, the Planning Commission shall approve the final site plan.  The decision of the Planning Commission shall be final, unless appealed to the City Council within ten (10) days from the date of such decision.
   .040   Final Site Plan Conformance.  Following approval of a final site plan, if any changes are proposed regarding the size, location or alteration of any use or structures shown on an approved final site plan, a revised final site plan may be submitted to the Planning Director for approval.  If the Planning Director determines that the proposed revision is in substantial conformance with the provisions of the Specific Plan and the general intent of the approved final site plan, the revised final site plan shall be approved by the Planning Director, without submittal to the Planning Commission for review and approval.  The decision of the Planning Director shall be final, unless appealed to the Planning Commission within ten (10) days from the date of such decision.
