A.   A site resource inventory (SRI) shall be prepared for any development on a site that contains unique or significant ridges, peaks, riparian areas, wildlife corridors, and significant vegetation. These areas shall be protected and preserved unless the town determines that it is not possible to do so without depriving the property owner of any economically viable use of the property.

D.   The SRI shall be based on an aerial photograph of the site that is no older than two years from the date of submittal.
