The official, board or body charged with granting the necessary approval for a proposed development shall review an applicant’s proposal for mitigating any identified direct impacts and determine whether such proposal is an acceptable mitigation measure considering the cost and land requirements of the required improvement and the extent to which the necessity for the improvement is attributable to the direct impacts of the proposed development. No official, board or body shall approve a development unless provisions have been made to mitigate identified direct impacts that are consequences of such development.
The methods of mitigating identified direct impacts required as a condition to any development approval may include, but are not limited to, dedication of land to any public body and/or off-site improvements and/or on-site improvement. (Ord. 1655 § 1, 1996; Ord. 1635 § 1, 1996; Ord. 1181 § 6, 1985).
