A conditional use is a use which is essential to or would promote the public health, safety, or welfare in one (1) or more zoning districts, but which would impair the integrity and character of the zoning district in which it is located, or in adjoining zoning districts, unless restrictions on location, size, extent, and character of performance are imposed in addition to those imposed in the Zoning Regulations.

The Board of Adjustment (BOA) hears and decides applications for conditional use permits to allow the proper integration into the community of uses which are specifically named in the Zoning Regulations which may be suitable only in specific locations in the zoning district if certain conditions are satisfied.
