Section 1203.05    Conditional Uses

  1. Procedures for Approval of Conditional Uses
    Applications for approval of a conditional use shall follow the core development
    approval process set forth in Section 1203.02 of this Chapter, except for the
    following modifications:
    1. Step 1: Pre-Application Conceptual Review. Pre-application conceptual
      review is strongly encouraged for all persons intending to submit an
      application for conditional use approval.

    2. Step 2: Staff Review and Report. Within thirty (30) days from the date that a
      submitted application is certified as complete pursuant to Section 1203.01(c)
      above, the City Manager shall refer the conditional use application to
      appropriate review agencies, review the conditional use application, and
      prepare the staff report.

    3. Step 3: Planning Commission Action. Within sixty (60 days) from the date
      that the application is certified as complete pursuant to Section 1203.01(c)
      above, the PC shall take final action on an application for conditional use by
      either approving, approving with conditions, or denying such application.

  2. Standards for Review
    All applications for a conditional use shall demonstrate compliance with all
    applicable criteria and standards set forth in Section 1206.02 of this Code.

  3. Lapse
    1. Failure of an applicant to commence substantial construction or action with
      regard to the conditional use approval within one (1) year of receiving
      approval of the conditional use and to complete such construction or action
      within two (2) years of receiving approval of the conditional use shall
      automatically render the decision of the PC, or the BZBA on appeal, null and
      void.

    2. If a legally established conditional use is abandoned, extinguished, or
      discontinued for a period of one (1) consecutive year or more, then the
      decision originally approving such conditional use shall automatically lapse
      and be null and void.

  4. Application
    Applications for a conditional use shall be submitted to the City Manager upon such
    forms as approved by the City Manager.
