  • Pre-application process
  • Complete a rezoning intake requirements sheet
  • Meeting with property owners

Conditional Use Concerns

  • Submitted conditions signed by the property owner
  • Zoning conditions (must reference specific properties and include PIN, deed book and page number from the Book of Maps)

Conditions may contain electronic signatures, must be more restrictive than UDO requirements, and may not restrict cross access or street connections/specify right-of-way reimbursement values/defer traffic analysis. Also conditions may not specify ownership status, race, religion or character of occupant, must preserve 100% of the critical root zone of the protected trees, and must specify the uses prohibited or the uses permitted.
