PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO SECTION 6.9 AND 17.4 OF THE ZONING ORDINANCE

Reads:

6.9 SPECIAL USE APPLICATION

6.91 General.  Land uses listed as permitted by a special use application are allowed only after review, consideration, and approval of the Sawyer County Zoning Committee. This category recognizes that land uses vary in their degree of impact on both community and resources.  Special uses are considered less critical than conditional uses, but of such importance that they shall be subject to review by the Zoning Committee at a public meeting.

 

6.92 Application.  Application for a special use shall be made to the Zoning Administrator who shall refer the application to the Zoning Committee. In addition to the information required under Section 9.2, Land Use Permit, the Zoning Committee may require the applicant to submit other pertinent data and information necessary to properly evaluate the request, including a construction material list.

 

6.93 Review.  Special use applications may not require a Public Hearing subject to Section 13.0.  However, if during its review, the Zoning Committee in its discretion finds a proposed special use to be of significant concern, it may be upgraded to conditional use status and subject to those review processes and public hearing.

 

6.94 Conditions.  The Zoning Committee may attach any special provisions or condition to a special use application deemed necessary to further the goals and objectives of this ordinance.  The Zoning Committee shall be guided by those factors listed in Section 8.0 of this ordinance.

 

6.95 Approval and Permits.  Upon review and approval of a special use application by the Zoning Committee, the property owner shall obtain a land use permit for such use in accordance with the requirements of Section 9.2.
