For any #development# or #site alteration#, the City Planning Commission may authorize modifications of the natural topography existing on September 11, 1975, beyond the amount specified in Section 107-31 (Topographic Regulations), provided that the Commission finds that:
- #development# on the #zoning lot# is not feasible without such modifications;
- such modification of topography is necessary to accommodate public amenities, such as public pedestrian ways, the #waterfront esplanade# or active recreational facilities within a #designated open space# as required under the provisions of this Chapter;
- such modification will not cause unnecessary disturbance of the drainage pattern in the area; and
- such modified topography will have minimal impact on the existing natural topography of the surrounding area and will blend harmoniously with it.
