A Conditional Use Permit (CUP) allows the City flexibility to determine if a proposed land use on a specific site will be compatible with the environment and the General Plan. Approval is determined through a public hearing process with the Planning Commission. Consideration of a CUP is a discretionary act. This allows the City to deny an application if it determines that the use will have a negative impact on the community.
Staff and Planning Commission will evaluate such items as building placement and size, characteristic of the use, traffic generation, noise, hours of operation, adequacy of parking, circulation, landscaping, and overall compatibility of the use with adjoining properties and other development impacts. Conditions may be imposed as necessary to insure that the proposed use will be compatible with the surrounding properties and environment.
