Zoning - What is a Special Use Permit (SUP)?

In most zoning districts, there are uses which may or may not be appropriate in a particular location. Typically, they are uses that may have some special impact or uniqueness which requires a careful review of their location, design, configuration and special impact to determine the desirability of permitting the use's establishment on a particular site. Such uses are classified as Special Uses, and before they may be established, both the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council must hold a public hearing. If approved by the City Council, the use may be established subject to any development standards or safeguards imposed at the time of City Council approval.  

Special Use Permit Ordinance.
