Protected Saguaro Cactus shall not be destroyed, mutilated or removed from the premises or relocated on the premises except in accordance with an approved Saguaro Cactus Program after the issuance of a Saguaro Cactus Permit. The Planning and Zoning Administrator or designee shall review Saguaro Cactus Programs presented as part of the Saguaro Cactus Permit application and may approve, conditionally approve, or deny an application based upon compliance with and in consideration of the criteria contained herein. No Saguaro Cactus Program shall be approved until it has been demonstrated that the following criteria have been met:

A. The proposed Saguaro Cactus Program shall (1) provide reasonable saguaro cactus salvage, protection, storage, and (2) ensure consistency with the existing neighborhood character.

B. The Saguaro Cactus Program should minimize the number of salvageable saguaro cacti that would be removed due to proposed construction on the site.

C. A Protected Saguaro Cactus inventory shall provide a clear, comprehensive listing of saguaro cacti and their condition to allow for site planning and determination of plant salvageability.
