When compliance with a particular subdivision or site plan requirement found in the Design and Construction Standards Manual (DCSM) unduly burdens an applicant or causes harm to an adjacent property, the applicant may request a waiver of the requirement. All waiver requests are submitted to the Land Development Division for processing.
Waivers of technical requirements of the Manual are considered by the Department of Public Works or Department of Transportation. Waivers of non-technical and administrative requirements are considered by the Department of Development Services (DDS).
Waivers of the Zoning Ordinance Subdivision Ordinance or DCSM may also be requested as part of a rezoning application or special use permit application (see page six (6) of each application package).
