The Board shall not grant a conditional use permit unless it shall, in
each specific case, make specific written findings of fact directly based
upon the particular evidence presented to it, which support conclusions that:
The proposed conditional use complies with all applicable regulations,
including lot size requirements, bulk regulations, use limitations and
performance standards; unless a concurrent application is in process for a
variance. The consensus of the Commission is yes/true.
The proposed conditional use will not cause substantial injury to the
value of other property in the neighborhood. The Commission voted
3. The location
and size of the conditional use, the nature and intensity of the operation
involved in or conducted in connection with it, and the location of the site
with respect to streets giving access to it are such that the conditional use
will not dominate the immediate neighborhood so as to prevent development and
use of neighboring property in accordance with the applicable zoning district
regulations. In determining whether the conditional use will so dominate the
immediate neighborhood, consideration shall be given to:
location, nature, size and height of buildings, structures, walls and fences
on the site; and the Commission voted yes/true.
b. The nature
and extent of landscaping and screening on the site. The Commission voted
parking and loading areas will be provided in accordance with the standards
set forth in Article 5 of these regulations. Such areas will be screened
from adjoining residential uses and located so as to protect such residential
uses from injurious effects. The Commission voted yes/true.
Adequate utility, drainage and other such necessary facilities have
been installed or will be provided by platting, dedications and/or
guarantees. The Commission voted yes/true.
Adequate access roads, entrance and exit drives and/or access control
is available or will be provided by platting, dedications and/or guarantees
and shall be so designed to prevent traffic hazards and to minimize traffic
congestion in public streets and roads. The Commission voted yes/true.
