What is a conditional use permit?

A conditional use permit authorizes a property owner (or their agent) to use property in a way that isn’t absolutely permitted as a right, but also isn’t directly prohibited by law. Permits must be approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission after a public hearing; the regulations they follow attempt to allow some flexibility, while still protecting the general health and safety of the rest of the community.
