I. USE PERMIT

16.82.010 Issuance—Purpose—Hearing.

Use permits may be issued as provided in this article for any of the uses or purposes for which such permits are required or permitted by the terms of this title upon conditions designated by the planning commission.

The purpose of the use permit is to allow the proper integration into the community of uses which may be suitable only in specific locations in a zoning district, or if such uses are designed or laid out on the site in a particular manner.

The planning commission may approve, deny, or conditionally approve an application for a use permit.

The planning commission may impose such conditions as it deems necessary to secure the purposes of this title and may impose such requirements and conditions with respect to location, construction, maintenance, operation, site planning, traffic control and time limits for the use permit as it deems necessary for the protection of adjacent properties and the public interest and may require tangible guarantees or evidence that such conditions are being, or will be, complied with. A public hearing shall be held thereon. Notice of such hearings shall be given to the persons designated and in the manner prescribed in Chapter 16.84. (Ord. 789 § 1, 1989; Ord. 548 § 2 (part), 1973: Prior code § 30.701(A)).

16.82.020 Form of application—Accompanying fee and plans.

Application for a use permit shall be made in writing by the owners of the property, lessee, purchaser in escrow, or optionee with the consent of the owners, on a form prescribed by the planning commission of the city. The application shall be accompanied by a fee, set by the City Council, and plans showing the details of the proposed use to be made of the land or building. (Ord. 548 § 2 (part), 1973: Prior code § 30.701(B)).

16.82.030 Granting.

In considering an application, the planning commission shall consider and give due regard to the nature and condition of all adjacent uses and structures, and to general and specific plans for the area in question and surrounding areas, and the impact of the application thereon.

The planning commission shall determine whether or not the establishment, maintenance, or operation of the use applied for will, under the circumstances of the particular case, be detrimental to the health, safety, morals, comfort and general welfare of the persons residing or working in the neighborhood of such proposed use, or whether it will be injurious or detrimental to property and improvements in the neighborhood or the general welfare of the city. If the planning commission finds that the aforementioned conditions will not result from the particular use applied for, it may grant the use permit.

When granting a use permit for sales of alcoholic beverages (including wine and beer and off and on sale), the planning commission may stipulate that the use permit shall be nontransferable.

A use permit shall be effective the fifteenth (15th) day after planning commission approval unless the planning commission action is appealed to the City Council, in which case the permit shall not be effective until the City Council has acted upon the appeal. (Ord. 931 § 9 (part), 2004: Ord. 643(a), 1979; Ord. 548 § 2 (part), 1973: Prior code § 30.701(C)).

16.82.035 Concurrent retailing of motor vehicle fuel with beer or wine.

(a)    Hearings. Hearings before the planning commission or City Council concerning an application for a use permit to allow the concurrent retailing of motor vehicle fuel with beer or wine for off-premises consumption shall be conducted according to this section. All parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to present testimony. Testimony shall be presented in the following order: (1) testimony by or on behalf of applicant; (2) testimony of the public for or against the application; (3) rebuttal testimony by or on behalf of applicant. Decisions by the planning commission and City Council shall be justified by written findings based on substantial evidence in view of the whole record. Hearings on appeals to the City Council shall be reported by a court reporter. If the applicant is the appellant, it shall pay the cost of the court reporter and the cost of the court reporter shall be estimated by the city clerk and paid in advance by applicant or the appeal will be dismissed. All hearings shall be public hearings. Notice thereof shall be given in accordance with Chapter 16.84 to the applicant, property owners within three hundred feet (300’), and any person who has filed a request for special notice.

(b)    Duration of Permit Right. The right to engage in the concurrent retailing of motor vehicle fuel with beer or wine under the terms of any use permit, whether granted before or after the enactment of the ordinance codified in this section, shall continue only so long as the licensed premises are operated continuously without substantial change in the mode or character of operation. Changes in the mode or character of operation shall include, but not be limited to, a change in the physical structure of the premises, a change in the ownership of the license, or a pattern of behavior in violation of state or local law. A dispute between the operator or property owner and the city as to whether the premises have been operated continuously without substantial change in the mode or character of operation shall be heard and resolved in accordance with the procedure specified in subsection (a) of this section and Section 16.82.190. (Ord. 768 § 1, 1988).

16.82.040 Appeal to City Council.

Appeals to the City Council regarding use permits shall be governed by Chapter 16.86. The appeal shall be accompanied by a fee as set by the City Council, and no part of such fee shall be refundable except as directed by motion adopted by the City Council. If on appeal, any material information or evidence is submitted to the City Council which was not presented or made available to the planning commission, the application shall be returned to the planning commission for its reconsideration. Where an application is denied by the planning commission, or upon appeal by the City Council, it shall not be eligible for resubmittal unless, in the opinion of the planning commission, new evidence is submitted or conditions have changed to such an extent that further consideration is warranted. (Ord. 738 § 1(a), 1986: Ord. 548 § 2 (part), 1973: Ord. 529 § 1, 1972; Prior code § 30.701(D)).

II. CONDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT PERMITS

16.82.050 Issuance—Purposes.

A conditional development permit may be issued to allow adjustment of the requirements of the district in order to secure special benefits possible through comprehensive planning of such large development. Further, such adjustment is intended to allow relief from the monotony of standard development; to permit the application of new and desirable development techniques; and to encourage more usable open space than would otherwise be provided with standard development. (Ord. 939 § 2, 2005: Prior code § 30.703(A)).

(Prior code § 30.703(B)).

16.82.070 Form of application.

16.82.080 Hearing on application.

Upon receipt of an application for a conditional development permit, the secretary of the planning commission shall set a date for a public hearing on such application; such hearing shall be held within forty-five (45) days after the filing of the application. Notice of such hearing shall be given as set forth in Chapter 16.84. (Prior code § 30.703(D)).

16.82.090 Planning commission action on application.

Application for conditional development permits shall be considered by the planning commission in relation to the effect upon the immediate neighborhood and the city. The planning commission may require offers of dedication or whatever special conditions or improvements are necessary to keep the proposed development within the spirit and purpose of this chapter. The application may be approved and recommended to the City Council if the commission finds that the development will serve the health, safety, and general welfare of the city. (Prior code § 30.703(E)).

16.82.100 Council action.

Upon receipt of the planning commission’s recommendation on a conditional development permit, the city clerk shall set a date for a public hearing thereon. Such hearing shall be held within thirty days after the receipt of the recommendation. At the conclusion of such hearing, the City Council may approve the conditional development permit, as recommended by the planning commission or as modified by the City Council. Council approval shall be in the form of an ordinance which shall combine the X district with the appropriate zoning district. (Prior code § 30.703(F)).

IV. REVOCATION OR DENIAL OF USE OF CONDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT PERMIT

16.82.170 Permits declared null and void when.

Any use permit or conditional development permit granted in accordance with the terms of Articles I and II shall be null and void if not used within one (1) year from the date of the approval thereof or within any different period of time, if so designated by the planning commission or City Council. The community development director may extend the effective date of approval upon the written request of the applicant for up to one (1) year, if the community development director finds that there is good cause for the extension based upon unusual circumstances and/or conditions not of the making of the applicant or its agents or employees. (Ord. 931 § 9 (part), 2004: Amended at city’s request, undated letter received May 1983; Prior code § 30.704 (part)).

(1)    In connection with use permits: The continuance of the use would be detrimental to health, safety, morals, comfort and general welfare of the persons residing or working in the neighborhood of such use, or would be injurious or detrimental to property and improvements in the neighborhood or to the general welfare of the city; or conditions of the permit are violated;

(3)    In connection with conditional development permits: One or more of the conditions of the permit are violated.

(Amended at city’s request, undated letter received May 1983; Prior code § 30.704(A)).

VI. VARIANCES

16.82.310 Issuance—Purpose—Hearing.

The planning commission, in appropriate cases and subject to appropriate conditions and safeguards as provided by this title, may hear and decide applications for variances from the terms of this title when the following circumstances are found to apply:

(1)    That, because of special circumstances applicable to the subject property, including size, shape, topography, location or surroundings, the strict application of this title is found to deprive such property of privileges enjoyed by other properties in the vicinity and under identical zoning classification;

(2)    That any variance granted shall be subject to such conditions as will assure that the adjustment thereby authorized shall not constitute a grant of special privilege inconsistent with the limitations upon other properties in the vicinity and zone in which subject property is situated and which are necessary to protect the public health, safety and welfare.

The planning commission may approve, deny, or conditionally approve an application for a variance. The planning commission may impose such conditions as it deems necessary to secure the purposes of this title and may impose such requirements and conditions with respect to location, construction, maintenance, operation, site planning, traffic control, and time limits for the variance as it deems necessary for the protection of adjacent properties and the public interest and may require tangible guarantees or evidence that such conditions are being, or will be, complied with. A public hearing shall be held thereon. Notice of such hearings shall be given to the persons designated and in the manner prescribed in Chapter 16.84. (Ord. 879 § 3 (part), 1996).

16.82.320 Variance applications.

Variance applications shall be filed on prescribed forms, indicating thereon, or supplemental thereto, such data and information as the prescribed form shall require. Each such application shall be verified by the owner(s) of the property involved. The application for the variance shall be accompanied by a filing fee in an amount established by resolution of the City Council, and no part of such fee shall be refundable. (Ord. 879 § 3 (part), 1996).

16.82.330 Duties of secretary of planning commission as to hearings.

Upon the filing of a verified application, the secretary of the planning commission shall:

(1)    Cause an investigation of applicable factors and secure a written staff report containing the facts thus far ascertained;

(2)    Set the matter for public hearing at the first available meeting of the commission;

(3)    Not less than ten (10) days preceding the date of the public hearing, send a notice through the United States mail to the latest recorded property owners of all property located within three hundred feet (300’) of subject property, as shown upon the current assessment role of the city and the county; said to identify the property for which a variance is applied, the nature of the proposed variance, the time and place of the public hearing; and have published the same notice in a newspaper of general circulation in the city. The failure of any property owner to receive said notice of hearing will not invalidate the proceedings.

Following the hearing on an application for a variance the commission may, if it deems necessary make, or cause to have made, further inquiries into fact and shall thereafter record its findings in resolution form. (Ord. 879 § 3 (part), 1996).

16.82.340 Purpose of the variance and required findings.

(a)    Purpose. The purpose of the variance is to allow variation from the strict application of the terms of this title where, by reason of the exceptional narrowness, shallowness or unusual shape of a specific piece of property, or by reason of exceptional topographic conditions or other extraordinary situation or condition of such piece of property, or by reason of the use or development of property immediately adjoining the piece of property in question, the literal enforcement of the requirements of this title would cause undue hardship unnecessary to carry out the spirit and purpose of this title. In no case shall a variance be granted to permit a use other than a use permitted in the district involved or to permit relief in excess of fifty percent (50%) of any requirement of this title. In the SP-ECR/D district, in no case shall a variance be granted to exceed the intensity (floor area ratio) or density (dwelling units per acre) standards.

(b)    Findings. The planning commission shall grant a variance only when all of the following conditions are found:

(1)    That a hardship peculiar to the property and not created by any act of the owner exists. In this context, personal, family or financial difficulties, loss of prospective profits and neighboring violations are not hardships justifying a variance. Further, a previous variance can never have set a precedent, for each case must be considered only on its individual merits;

(2)    That such variance is necessary for the preservation and enjoyment of substantial property rights possessed by other conforming property in the same vicinity and that a variance, if granted, would not constitute a special privilege of the recipient not enjoyed by his/her neighbors;

(3)    That the granting of the variance will not be materially detrimental to the public health, safety, or welfare, or will not impair an adequate supply of light and air to adjacent property;

(4)    That the conditions upon which the requested variance is based would not be applicable, generally, to other property within the same zoning classification;

(5)    That the condition upon which the requested variance is based is an unusual factor that was not anticipated or discussed in detail during any applicable specific plan process. (Ord. 979 § 12 (part), 2012: Ord. 879 § 3 (part), 1996).

16.82.350 Willow Road land use plan, variances.

Notwithstanding the requirements of the preceding section, variances in residential densities may be granted whenever necessary to carry out the provisions of the Willow Road land use plan adopted by the City Council on November 24, 1987. (Ord. 879 § 3 (part), 1996).

16.82.360 Decisions of the commission and appeals therefrom.

(a)    Decision and Required Conditions.

(1)    Within thirty (30) days after the hearing of the application the planning commission shall render its decision and shall by written resolution render its order based on a finding of facts showing whether or not the findings required under Section 16.82.340(b) applying to the land and/or building for which the variance is sought have been met, and whether or not such variance will be in harmony with the general purpose of this title.

(2)    The commission may designate such conditions in connection with the variance, as it deems necessary to secure the purposes of this title, and may require guarantees and evidence that such conditions are being or will be complied with.

(b)    Appeal. Appeals from an action of the planning commission may be made pursuant to Chapter 16.86. The City Council shall consider the appeal with reference to Section 16.82.340 and shall render its decision based on the findings of fact as therein enumerated.

(c)    Issuance of Permit. Following the planning commission approval of a variance application or appeal to the commission, the secretary of the commission shall forward a copy of the resolution to the applicant, the building inspection division, and the city clerk. Said order shall become effective within fifteen (15) days from the date of the resolution. Thereafter, all administrative and enforcing offices of the city shall conform to such order.

(d)    Time Limit. The planning commission may establish a time limit within which the subject property and use shall be developed. Said time limit may be extended by the commission, or by the community development director for up to one (1) year, for good cause when the applicant presents proof of unusual conditions not of his own making. If no time limit is specified by the commission it shall not be for more than one (1) year.

(e)    New Applications. Following the denial of a variance or appeal to the commission, no application for a variance from the same or substantially the same exception to the ordinance on the same or substantially the same site, or the same appeal to the commission, shall be filed within one (1) year from the date of denial of a variance or appeal. (Ord. 931 § 9 (part), 2004: Ord. 879 § 3 (part), 1996).

16.82.370 Violation of orders.

The violation of any condition imposed by the commission in connection with an order granting a variance shall constitute a violation of this title and shall be subject to the same penalties as any other violations of this title. (Ord. 879 § 3 (part), 1996).

16.82.380 Revocation or modification of variances.

If at any time subsequent to an order of the planning commission, circumstances recited in the resolution as contributing to the justification for the order granting a variance should be changed, the commission may, upon its own initiative or on the recommendations of an enforcing office of the city, institute proceedings which shall be the same as those employed in considering an application for a variance. Upon the completion of the required hearing the commission shall by resolution enumerate its findings and, based thereon, shall issue its order to continue the original variance, modify the conditions of the variance, or revoke the variance as, in the judgment of the commission, is justified by its findings and necessary to conform to the purposes of this title.

Copies of such findings and order shall be distributed as in the case of action on an application or appeal to the commission as set forth in Section 16.82.360(c). (Ord. 879 § 3 (part), 1996).

VII. ADMINISTRATIVE PERMITS
