What is a Special Use?

Special uses add flexibility to the Unified Development Ordinance by permitting potentially undesirable uses of property in specified districts when certain criteria (JPG) are met. 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 advised to discuss any application for a Special Use Permit with staff prior to submittal.
