Certain types of uses require special consideration before being permitted in particular zones. The reasons for requiring special consideration include, for example, the size of the area required for the full development of those uses, the nature of traffic problems incidental to operation of those uses, the effect those uses might have on adjoining land uses, potential environmental impacts, and their effect on the growth and development of the community as a whole. Uses permitted only with a conditional use permit may also possess unique or special characteristics that make it unacceptable to permit them in particular zones without conditions. In zones where a use may be conditionally permitted, the location and operation of the use is subject to conditional use permit review and approval under a Type III application procedure. One purpose for the review is to determine if the characteristics of the use can be made reasonably compatible with the type of uses permitted outright in surrounding areas. Another purpose is to provide reasonable and necessary conditions so the basic purposes of this land use code are served.
