What is the process for applying? How long does it take?

The process involves a special use permit that runs with the property, not the business or owner. The property owner must sign the land use development application which makes them aware of the applicant’s desire to obtain a special use permit for the property. The process takes a minimum of three months and two public hearings will be held; Planning Commission makes a recommendation to City Council and City Council makes the final decision.
