The County’s approval of the project does not mean a developer can commence land disturbing activity immediately.  The approval merely rezoned the property to a new Master Plan Development Conditional Zoning district designation and established additional development requirements/conditions for the project.  Individual development(s) will have to obtain site plan approval by County Planning staff in accordance with the Unified Development Ordinance and applicable conditions imposed by the BOCC as part of the January 23, 2018 approval.
