What is a Use permit?
Some uses, because of their unique nature or their impact on adjacent land uses, are not permitted by right, but may, under certain conditions be deemed acceptable in certain locations. If such is the case with the use proposed for a certain piece of property, a special exception, special use or conditional use permit is required.
