The design professional must certify to the district that the site development work does not exceed the minimum requirements to develop the site to meet educational needs and/or standards.
General Site Development provided pursuant to 1859.76(d)(1), service site and off-site development costs shall be reduced, on a prorated basis, by the percentage of the excess acreage of the site that exceeds the master plan site acreage approved by the CDE.
