13.4.3 Based on the unique impacts of a Proposed Development on Public Facilities, the Town may initiate or an applicant may submit an application to the Administrator requesting that an alternative demand factor be applied to the Proposed Development for purposes of complying with the terms of this Article. The alternative demand factor must be supported by professional economic and land use-based analyses, such as the latest edition of the Trip Generation Manual (ITE), which clearly demonstrates an impact on Public Facilities different from those set forth in subsection 13.4.2, based on the Level of Service standards set forth in 13.4.1. The Town’s analysis or an application under this subsection must be approved by the Administrator prior to the submission of an APF Application and the completeness review provided under section 13.6.3 of this Article.
