At a minimum, written notice of the hearing will be provided to property owners within 300 feet of the outer boundaries of the property involved in the master plan. For park properties of regional significance or those including specialized facilities or unusual conditions, written notice over a greater area will be given commensurate with the public importance of the master plan.

Any permits or approvals required to develop the site pursuant to the master plan will be processed pursuant to this code.
