20.54.010 Issuance – Duration.

The commission may issue a temporary use permit for a use not normally permitted in a district. The temporary use permit shall be for seasonal operations such as construction or timber harvest or temporary uses such as portable sawmill operations. While a temporary use permit should not normally be issued for longer than a 12-month period, the borough assembly may issue a multi-year permit for major construction projects, subject to annual review of the performance of the applicant by the commission. The maximum length for any temporary use permit shall be five years. [Ord. 867 § 1, 2013; Ord. 462 § 6, 1984.]

20.54.020 Applications.

Applications for temporary use permits shall be processed by the commission in its capacity as authorizing agency as it would treat applications for variances. Multi-year applications shall be processed in a manner similar to applications for zoning changes with the added provision that the owner of the property must file a plan for the restoration and use of the property after the temporary use is removed. [Ord. 867 § 1, 2013; Ord. 462 § 6, 1984.]

20.54.030 Noncompliance.

Failure to comply with the provisions of a temporary use permit issued under this chapter shall be grounds for the revocation of such permit and prosecution under the terms of this code. [Ord. 867 § 1, 2013; Ord. 462 § 6, 1984.]
