What is special land use approval?

Special land use approval is approval of a use/development that requires specific standards in addition to the general requirements set forth in the Zoning Ordinance (Example: Amusement centers in a commercial zone). An application that details the submittal requirements is available in the Planning Department or may be accessed from the Planning Department page of the City’s website. After the proper submittal of the application and required plans and documentation, a public hearing is held before the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission makes a recommendation to City Council on the request. City Council also holds a public hearing on the item and makes a decision to approve or deny the request.
