Where the Planning Board finds that compliance with these regulations would cause unusual hardship or extraordinary difficulties because of exceptional and unique conditions of topography, access, location, shape, size, drainage or other physical features of the site, the minimum requirements of these regulations may be modified to mitigate the hardship, provided that the public interest is protected and the development is in keeping with the general spirit and intent of the regulations.
No such modification may be granted if it would change the requirements or intent of the Zoning Ordinance, this chapter or other codes or ordinances of the Town of Salina or if same would under such circumstances require the subdivider to apply for a variance or similar relief as a result thereof.
The Planning Board may require such conditions as will, in its judgment, secure and ensure substantial compliance with the objectives of the requirement so changed or modified.
The Planning Board may modify the requirements of this chapter in the case of a proposed subdivision plat for a complete community or other planned development which in the judgment of the Planning Board provides adequate public space and improvements for the circulation, recreation, light, air and service needs of the community when fully developed and populated and which also provides such covenants or other legal provisions as will assure conformity to and achievement of the plan.
