    2. Policy LU-5.2 Military Influence Overlay

      We require conditional use permits for projects within the Military Influence Overlay that could penetrate the defined floor elevation of the military airspace, or that could encroach upon military operations.

    4. Policy LU-6.1 Residential amendments that increase density in the Desert and Mountain regions

      We discourage policy plan amendments that would permit new development on lots smaller than 2.5 acres in the Desert regions and lots smaller than one-half acre in the Mountain region. We approve general plan amendments that would increase residential density only if:
      • The proposed change is determined to be compatible in accordance with policies
      LU-2.1, 2.2, 2.3, and 4.5.
      • Adequate infrastructure and services are available concurrently.
