Certain minor improvements including re-roofing, re-siding, fences and sheds are eligible, subject to certain standards and restrictions, for registration instead of the traditional permitting process.
Some uses are prohibited - e.g. a retail sales establishment in a residential district. Other use are permitted with conditions because of the impacts the use may have on adjacent property. It is these uses that require a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to be allowed in their zoning district.
A Site Development Permit is required for projects that involve grading and/or filling activities. A Site Development Permit is also required for any development in the floodplains and wetlands and for projects that may result in soil erosion and/or drainage concerns.
The zoning code of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) regulates the type of uses that are allowed to take place on your property. A temporary use is established for a fixed period of time with the intent to discontinue the use at the end of that time. These uses require a Temporary Use Permit.
