Conditional Use Permit Flow Chart

 Conditional Use Permit Process

Conditional Uses are certain uses (described in Article 10, Section 10.2) which, due to their size and/or operation, have impacts that could adversely impact neighboring uses or the community as a whole. Due to the potential impacts of these uses, they must meet certain conditions to ensure that they do not adversely impact neighboring uses or the community as a whole. A Conditional Use Permit must be issued for these uses. Article 7, Section 7.8 spells out the procedures required for obtaining a Conditional Use Permit (CUP).
