Use Modification

Some land use applications have less to do with the size of the site, and more to do with what can be done on it. Such applications are usually requests to change or modify the land uses that are allowable by the existing zoning.

Conditional Use

Conditional Use is a special request to employ a land use that is only allowable on a case-by-case basis because of the potential for impacts to the surrounding properties.

Conditional Use applications require going through the Minor Application Process and are reviewed by town staff and approved by the Planning Commission before final acceptance by the Board of Trustees.

Special Use
Special Use only applies to oil and gas applications. Special Use reviews focus primarily on ensuring that the applicant has gone through the appropriate state permitting process and that any potential impacts to surrounding property owners will be mitigated.

Special Use applications require going through the Administrative Application Process and are reviewed and approved by town staff.

Temporary Use
Temporary Use applies to seasonal sales operations such as fireworks tents, produce stands and Christmas tree lots that will not be in operation for more than 90 days at a time.

Temporary Use applications require going through the Administrative Application Process and are reviewed and approved by town staff.

Zoning Amendment
Zoning Amendment is the re-classification of a property to another zoning district which allows for different uses, depending upon what the applicant and the town sees as appropriate for the property.

Zoning Amendment applications require going through the Major Application Process and are required to go before the Planning Commission and Board of Trustees for approval.
