Sec. 9-4.1903.  Procedure.
   (a)   Preapplication review.  Prior to filing any entitlement application for a condominium conversion, mobile home park subdivision or mobile home park change of use, the prospective applicant shall file a preapplication request. Its basic purpose is to provide an opportunity for the applicant to understand the requirements, procedures and steps that must be taken before a condominium conversion, mobile home park subdivision or mobile home park change of use may be approved.  City staff shall conduct a preapplication work session with the applicant to discuss the City’s requirements and the project’s ultimate impact on the residential housing stock of the City prior to the preparation of plans and/or tentative tract maps in order to avoid the possible expenditure of substantial energy and expense in a manner not consistent with the guidelines for such projects, and also to allow the applicant to make changes, at an early stage, prior to the preparation and filing of entitlement applications.
   (b)   Application requirements in general.  After completion of the required preapplication review, an applicant for a condominium conversion, mobile home park subdivision or mobile home park change of use may file the necessary entitlement application(s) for the specific action sought. Said entitlement requests may include a tentative tract map, residential planned development permit (or major modification thereto), trailer park development permit (or major modification thereto) and such other entitlements as may be necessary. Filing of all entitlement applications shall be subject to the provisions of Section 9-4.2802 of this chapter and additional requirements imposed by this article.
   (c)   Public hearings. The Planning Commission shall hold a public hearing on an application for a condominium conversion, mobile home park subdivision or mobile home park change of use, subject to appeal to the City Council. Notice of public hearing shall be given in the manner required by Chapter 12 of this title and the additional special notice requirements set forth in this article.
