Modification of an approved standards review granted pursuant to EC 9.4780(3) or 9.4930(3) may be requested following the Type II process. The planning director shall approve the request if it complies with the following criteria:
(1) The proposed modification is consistent with the conditions of the original approval.
(2) The proposed modification will not result in a greater impact to the resource than permitted by the initial approval.
If the planning director determines that the modification is not consistent with the above criteria, the proposed modification may not occur until a new standards review application is submitted and reviewed based on the Type II application procedures in section 9.7200 and the requirements and criteria in sections 9.4770-9.4790 or 9.4900-9.4980. Nothing in this section shall preclude the applicant from initially submitting the requested modification as a new standards review application.
