CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT

Because certain land uses (see Zoning Matrix) may not be complementary to adjacent properties, a Conditional Use Permit may be required for a new business, development, or other land use modification.. For example, some commercial uses established next to existing residential development may have conditions limiting hours of operation or specific noise control measures such as closed windows and doors. In order to find out whether a land use requires a CUP (Conditional Use Permit), look up the zoning by visiting the Zoning page. Then look up the desired land use (i.e. R1, C1, etc.) in the Zoning Matrix and see whether the land use is permitted (P), not permitted (N) or conditionally permitted (C). Any conditionally permitted land uses require a CUP.

During the CUP review process, considerations are given to the zoning, type of business, and potential impacts to surrounding existing development. Generally, a CUP is permanently tied to the property  unless the Planning Commission puts time limits on the CUP, as long as the conditions of approval are upheld and the use or activity does not become a nuisance to the City. For new construction, a PD is often required in conjunction with the CUP.  See the Planned Development page.  The following are all application materials required for a CUP.
