They also assess these areas and identify any <br />potential impacts resulting from your specific development proposal. If a specific development <br />proposal results in an alteration to a critical area, the critical areas report will also contain a <br />mitigation plan. You have the option of completing the portion of the study that classifies and <br />delineates the critical areas and waiting until you have a specific development proposal to <br />complete the study. You may also choose to submit the entire study with your specific <br />development application. <br /> Please review the minimum report requirements for all types of Critical Areas that are <br />listed in ECDC 23.40.090.D. There are additional report requirements for different types <br />of critical areas (see below). <br /> Note that it is important for the report to be prepared by a qualified professional as <br />defined in the ordinance. There are options on how to complete a critical areas study, <br />and there is an approved list of consultants that you may choose from. You may contact <br />the Planning Division for more information. <br /> General Mitigation Requirements for all Critical Areas are discussed in ECDC 23.40.110 <br />through 23.40.140. <br />STUDY REQUIREMENT – EROSION HAZARD AREA <br />It appears that this property contains or is adjacent to an Erosion Hazard Area.
