Conditional Use Permit (CUP)
A Conditional Use is one which is deemed potentially appropriate in and compatible with uses permitted by right in its zoning district, but which requires individual consideration and regulation. Conditional uses are not permitted by right in the various zoning districts.
A Conditional Use authorized by the Zoning Board of Appeals is subject to all the development regulations applicable to permitted uses in the district in which it is located, unless other more restrictive regulations are specifically approved. Conditional uses are also subject to the development and all applicable parking regulations for the use and district, unless other more restrictive regulations are specifically stated.
Unless specifically limited by the Zoning Board of Appeals, a conditional use shall be valid until the conditional use is discontinued. Conditional use approval is required before issuance of a building permit or Certificate of Occupancy (if no building permit is required). If a building permit or Certificate of Occupancy is not issued within one year following approval, the conditional use permit shall expire.
Violation of the terms and conditions of the conditional use shall be deemed a violation of the Zoning Ordinance, subject to the revocation or cancellation of the permit. However, time extensions or changes in the development schedule approved as part of the conditional use may be approved by the Zoning Board.
