What is a special use?

A special use permit is a permit issued to authorize development or land uses in a particular zoning district upon presentation of competent, material, and substantial evidence establishing compliance with one or more general standards requiring that judgement and discretion be exercised as well as compliance with specific standards.   An "S" in the Table of Permissible Uses indicates a special use in the specified district. When considering a request for a special use permit, the Board of Adjustment may impose reasonable and appropriate conditions upon these permits. Applicants are encouraged to discuss any special use application with staff prior to submittal.
