(B) The replacement facility would not be used to continue to provide mental retardation or developmental disability services that the director determines are appropriate for the individuals the county board or agency serves.
(C) The county board or agency has failed to comply with a provision of Chapter 5123. or 5126. of the Revised Code or a rule adopted by the director.
(D) Approving the application would be inconsistent with the plans and priorities of the department of developmental disabilities.
