17.20.010 Modification:

Any person holding a permit granted under this title may request a modification or amendment to that permit. For the purpose of this section, the modification of a permit may include modification of the terms of the permit itself, project design, or the waiver or alteration of conditions imposed in the granting of the permit. Any modifications to the design shall be stamped and signed by the architect of record if an architect prepared the original design. If the planning director determines that a proposed project action is not in substantial conformance with the original approval, the planning director shall notify the property owner of the requirement to submit a permit modification application for consideration and action by the same approving authority as the original permit. A permit modification may be granted only when the approving authority makes all findings required for the original approval, and the additional finding that there are changed circumstances sufficient to justify the modification of the approval.
