the developer proves to the reasonable satisfaction of the Board that the developer was barred
or prevented, directly or indirectly, from proceeding with the development because of delays
in obtaining legally required approvals from other governmental entities and that the developer
applied promptly for and diligently pursued the required approvals. A developer shall apply for
the extension before (1) what would otherwise be the expiration date of preliminary approval
or (2) the 91st day after the developer receives the last legally required approval from other
governmental entities, whichever occurs later. An extension granted pursuant to this
subsection shall not preclude the Planning Board from granting an extension pursuant to
subsection C. and D. of this section. [Added 6-10-92 by Ord. No. 92-19]
