The Special Exception/Use Permit (SEUP) procedure provides for certain uses which are permitted in a district, but may require conditions or restrictions that make them compatible with surrounding properties. For example, telecommunication towers require a SEUP. The main differences between a special exception/use permit and a rezoning request are that the SEUP is always for a specific use (such as a telecommunications tower or pool hall), and the County can set the conditions for approval of the permit. In a rezoning request, the applicant voluntarily proposes conditions (proffers) that the County can either accept or reject. Special Exceptions/Use Permits always require a public hearing before the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors.
