“Section 3. Be it further enacted that, the following conditions be completed, bonded or satisfied prior to the issuance of any permits, or as specifically required in the condition:
1. No lots or residential unit shall be located on slopes greater than 25%. If upon further analysis it is found that proposed lots will be located on slopes greater than 25%, then those lots shall be removed and shown as open space.
2. Single-family lots on slopes 20% or greater shall minimize grading and be in keeping with the hillside development standards stipulated in Section 17.28.030 of the Metro Zoning Code, and shall be identified as Critical Lots on the final SP site plan.
