C.    All or part of a development is in an institutional (IO) or master planned development overlay (PD) and is identified in a development agreement as requiring Class (2) approval;

Change of use proposals within existing buildings in the CBD shall be exempt from Type (1) review when the proposed new use is a Class (1) use under the Retail Trade and Service portion of YMC 15.04.030, Table 4-1. New construction or expansion of Class (1) uses shall follow the Type (1) review or modification process, as applicable. (Ord. 2023-026 § 2 (Exh. B), 2023).

15.13.030 Development permit application—Type (1) review.

Applications for permits for Class (1) uses permitted outright in the district shall be made in writing to the administrative official on forms supplied by the department.
