A.   The commission may, as an administrative act, consider and approve modifications to property development standards at a public meeting when such modifications are determined to be in the public interest.
   B.   Written notice of the hearing date, time and subject request shall be mailed to adjacent property owners not less than five (5) days prior to the meeting.
   C.   Such modifications are limited as follows: Lot area requirements, yard requirements and lot dimension requirements may be reduced for an individual lot by not more than twenty percent (20%) of that required in the district where, in the commission's judgment, the shape of the individual building site, topography of the site, the location of an existing building, or other conditions make strict compliance impossible without practical difficulties or personal hardships. (Ord. 1000 § 50.60, 1955)
