The provisions of EC 9.5750(9), 9.6708, and 9.8750 through 9.8760 allow for partial or full exemption from specific land use code standards only when, because of special circumstances applicable to the property, including location, shape, size, surroundings, or topography, the strict application of those regulations would deny the property owner uses enjoyed by other property owners in the vicinity and under identical zones. Any variance granted shall be subject to conditions that ensure the variance does not constitute a granting of special uses inconsistent with the limitations upon other properties in the vicinity and zone in which the property is situated. The city shall not grant variances which allow uses not on the applicable list of allowed uses specified in EC 9.2000 through 9.3980 of this land use code.
