D.  A screening and buffering plan shall be submitted for review by the Pueblo County Department of Planning and Development.  This plan shall include a site plan, which specifies all screening and buffering materials, type of landscaping, and elevations to depict compliance with these requirements.  Screening and buffering not specifically mentioned in these regulations, but found appropriate and necessary due to unusual conditions on the site, may be required.
