In the City Code (Chapter 405), uses are permitted either 'by right' or by "special use permit". A special use is a use which may be appropriate in the district in which it is permitted, if it meets criteria outlined in chapter 405. Applications for special use permits include a site plan as an exhibit; the site plan includes the details of the existing or proposed building, parking, and related site improvements.
Special use permit approval is required for all uses listed as special use in each zoning district; the uses are particular to each district.
Special use permits are reviewed by the Planning Commission at public hearing. After review of the application and the public hearing, the Planning and Zoning Commission takes final action on the proposed use.
Interested citizens can attend the public hearing at the Planning Commission to express their opinion about the proposed special use permit. Also, comments can be mailed or emailed to the Planning Department - these will be provided to the Commission and become part of the official record.
