A review of some uses is necessary due to the potential individual or cumulative impacts they may have on the surrounding area or neighborhood. The conditional use review provides an opportunity to allow the use when there are minimal impacts; allow the use but impose mitigation measures to address identified concerns; or deny the use if the concerns cannot be resolved.
Conditional Use Procedures
A conditional use proposal will be reviewed through either a Type 1x, Type II or Type III procedure. A new conditional use is generally a Type III review, although changes to existing uses may be allowed through a Type II process. The review thresholds and approval criteria for all situations are contained within Chapter 33.815, Conditional Uses.
Other Reviews: A Conditional Use Master Plan is a plan for the future development of a use that is subject of the conditional use regulations.
