>>(30.02) Common use amenity. Feature provided for the common enjoyment of residents within a<< >>residential site plan<<2 [[unified development]]>>, including, without limitation, a recreational or entertainment facility, swimming pool, outdoor recreational area or facility, passive park, or water body set aside as park area.<<

* * * *

The Community Zoning Appeals Boards shall have authority over the following zoning applications except where the Board of County Commissioners has direct jurisdiction.

* * * *

(7) Hear applications to modify or eliminate any condition or part thereof which has been imposed by any final decision adopted by resolution, and to modify or eliminate any provisions of restrictive covenants, or parts thereof, accepted at public hearing, except as otherwise provided in Section 33-314(C)(3); provided, that the appropriate board finds after public hearing (a) that the modification or elimination, in the opinion of the Community Zoning Appeals Board, would not generate excessive noise or traffic, tend to create a fire or other equally or greater dangerous hazard, or provoke excessive overcrowding of people, or would not tend to provoke a nuisance, or would not be incompatible with the area concerned, when considering the necessity and reasonableness of the modification or elimination in relation to the present and future development of the area concerned, or (b) (i) that the resolution that contains the condition approved a school use that was permitted only as a special exception, (ii) that subsequent law permits that use as of right without the requirement of approval after public hearing, and (iii) that the requested modification or elimination would not result in development exceeding the standards provided for schools authorized as a matter of right without the requirement of approval after public hearing. >>It is further provided, however, that no zoning application to delete or modify a common open space or common use amenity within a<< >>residential site plan<< [[unified development]]>>that was previously approved upon public hearing shall be approved except upon a two-thirds vote of the members present at the hearing at which the application is decided; this provision shall not apply to an application to modify or delete a condition or restrictive covenant, or parts thereof, within an urban center district or urban area district.<<

Sec. 33-313.1. - Deletion or modification of covenants >>or common open spaces or amenities<<.

For zoning applications heard by the County Commission, no zoning application >>(i)<< to delete or amend a declaration of restrictive covenants that was submitted in connection with a prior zoning application that would result in an increase in the density or intensity of a use >>or (ii) to delete or modify a common open space or common use amenity within a<< >>residential site plan<< [[unified development]]>>that was previously approved upon public hearing,<< shall be approved except upon a two-thirds vote of the members present at the hearing at which the application is decided.
