In cases where projects add thirty percent (30%) or more floor area to an existing development project, regulations for recycling collection areas shall apply to all uses and the entire development project.
(b) To individual tenants within an existing development project occupied by multiple tenants in which tenant improvements individually or cumulatively add thirty percent (30%) or more to the floor area of the tenant's business within a 12-month period. (Ord. 1994-18 § 1 (part), 1994).
