Whenever the tract to be subdivided is of such unusual size or shape, or is surrounded by such development or unusual conditions, that the strict application of the requirements contained in these platting and subdivision regulations would result in real difficulties or substantial hardship or injustice, the Planning Commission may vary or modify the requirements so that the subdivider may develop his property in a reasonable manner, but so that, at the same time, the public welfare and interests of the City and the surrounding area are protected and the general intent and spirit of these platting and subdivision regulations preserved.
(1980 Code 152.50)
