4.7.E Approval Standards

When considering an application for a minor map adjustment, the Department of Safety and Permits or the Executive Director of the City Planning Commission, as appropriate, shall find that the application meets both of the following standards:

1.  The minor map adjustment does not constitute a substantive change in zoning or land use that would adversely affect adjacent property.

2.  The minor map adjustment does not grant a less restrictive classification to a lot of sufficient size or configuration as to constitute a building site, unless the lot is separated from property within a more restrictive zoning district or land use category by a street, canal, or similar public right-of-way.
