The City Council may grant an exception or deviation from any provision herein and included in the Development Manual, except for lot area and dimensions as set forth in the Development Manual. When a developer can show that a provision of this chapter would cause unnecessary hardship, if strictly adhered to, and when, in the opinion of the Commission or Council, because of conditions peculiar to the site, a departure may be made without destroying the general intent and spirit of this chapter, the Commission may recommend and the Council may approve a waiver or modification. The developer shall apply in writing for such waiver or modification. Final approval of the waiver or modification shall only be as expressly set forth by the Council by ordinance, usually as part of the ordinance approving the final plat of the subdivision.
