The project requires a Grading Exception for grading quantities totaling over 1,500 cubic yards.  An amendment to the existing Conditional Use Permit (CUP) is required to update the Program Statement and exhibits (plans), and a new CUP is required for the work within the stream corridor pursuant to Woodside Municipal Code Section 153.208(F).
