8.A. Ensure an expansion does not make the existing impact worse.
8.B. The location and amount of expansion should be reviewed against current natural resource protections as if the existing impact does not exist. (status quo).
8.C. The expansion should only be allowed if the existing building is relocated so that the original impacted natural resource can be returned to its natural state.
8.D. The expansion must be designed to lessen the existing impact.
8.E. The expansion proposal must include mitigation for the existing impact.
Direction: Natural resource protections should acknowledge existing impacts and allow for by-right expansion that does not increase the existing impact, including intensity of use. There should be some consideration for the use of incentives and that the expansion be designed to reduce the existing impact when possible, especially related to water quality.
