§ 90.066  CHANGE IN LAND USE OR CHANGE IN LAND-USE DENSITY.
   (A)   A change in use notification shall be required when a change in the use of the access location or a change in the land-use or land-use density occurs and the continued use of an existing access location is proposed. Changes in land-use or land-use density may result in a significant change in the number of or type of vehicles using an access location. Therefore, a new access permit as well as modifications, improvements, additional right-of-way dedications or revisions may be required to the existing access location and/or the county highway to accommodate the change in traffic.
   (B)   Changes in land-use or land-use density are situations that may result in a change in the number or type of vehicles using an existing access. Modifications, improvements, or revisions may be required to the access point and/or the county highway to accommodate the change.
 
COMMENTARY:
Examples of changes in land-use may be the conversion of an office space to a medical office space, or an office space to a commercial retail space. Examples of changes in land-use density may be the redevelopment of an existing gas station to include a convenience store and car wash, installation of additional parking spaces, or the expansion of a building on a property with an existing access.
 
   (C)   If a change in land-use or land-use density occurs and an existing access point is proposed to be used, the owner shall submit a change in land-use notification form to the LCDOT prior to construction of proposed changes. The notification and supporting information shall be reviewed to identify if the existing access facility is suitable for the proposed land-use or land-use density, under the provisions of this chapter. If determined suitable, the owner will be notified to continue use of the existing access point. If the existing access facility is not suitable for the proposed land-use or land-use density, as determined by the Access Control Officer and in accordance with the provisions of this chapter and the design standards in the Technical Reference Manual, the owner shall submit a new application for a new access permit and make all modifications, improvements or revisions to the existing access point and/or the county highway to comply with the requirements of this chapter.
   (D)   If a property is being re-subdivided or redeveloped, the existing access point(s) may require relocation, reconstruction, or the number of access points reduced to comply with the requirements of this chapter.
