1279.30  PHASING, AMENDMENTS AND ADDITIONS.
   (a)   Staging Plans.  If the applicant wishes to construct the development in phases, a staging plan shall be developed that clearly designates the phases of construction and shall be reviewed and approved by applicable City departments. In a phased Town Center Overlay District development, it is expected that changes in the approved site development plan may be required. In order to preserve the flexibilities which are fundamental to a Town Center Overlay District, planned changes or modifications are permitted subject to approval, as defined below.
   (b)   Amendments to the Plan. At any time after the approval of the Preliminary Development Plan or the Final Development Plan, the owner or owner's representative may request an amendment to their plans. Planning Commission shall determine if the amendment is a major modification to the approved plans or a minor modification.
      (1)   Major modification. If it is determined by Planning Commission that the amendment is a major departure from the approved plans, the amendment shall be processed as a new Preliminary Development Plan. For purposes of this section, a major departure may include, but is not limited to, a substantial change to the basic design, density, uses, circulation, or open space requirements of the approved plan.
      (2)   Minor modification. If it is determined by Planning Commission that the amendment is a minor departure from the approved plans, the amendment shall be processed as a Final Development Plan application.
   (c)   Town Center Overlay District Land Additions. At any time after the approval of the Preliminary Development Plan, the owner or owner's representative shall submit an application to increase the size of the District as long as all proposed land additions are controlled or owned by the same person or entity acting jointly. Any new land additions to an approved Town Center Overlay shall be processed as a new Preliminary Development Plan. Land additions are not subject to the minimum area requirements.
