Conditional Use Districts Established: Purposes Set Forth
There is also established a Conditional Use District (CUD) which corresponds to each of the districts authorized by this ordinance as follows:

AR       - CUD            MR - CUD
R-20    - CUD            OI   - CUD
R-15    - CUD            CB  - CUD
R-12.5 - CUD            GB  - CUD
R-10    - CUD            IC   - CUD
R-8      - CUD            CN - CUD
R-6      - CUD            I      - CUD
It is recognized that certain types of zoning districts would be inappropriate at certain locations in the absence of special conditions. Where the applicant for rezoning desires property to be rezoned to such a district in such situations, the Conditional Use District is a means by which such special conditions can be imposed in the furtherance of the purpose of this Ordinance. The Conditional Use District classification will be considered for rezoning only upon request of a property owner. If for any reason any condition imposed pursuant to these regulations is found to be illegal or invalid or if the applicant should fail to accept any condition, it is the intent of this Ordinance that the authorization of such Conditional Use Permit shall be null and void and of no effect and that proceedings shall be instituted to rezone the property to its previous zoning classification. Within a CUD, only those uses authorized as permitted or conditional uses in the zoning district with which the CUD corresponds shall be permitted, and all other requirements of the corresponding district shall be met as minimum standards. In addition, within a CUD no use shall be permitted except subject to a Conditional Use Permit authorized by the Board of Aldermen, which shall specify the use or uses authorized. Such permit may further specify the location on the property of the proposed use and uses, the number of dwelling units, the location and extent of supporting facilities such as parking lots, driveways and access streets, the location and extent of buffer areas and other special purpose areas, the timing of development, the location and extent of rights-of-way and other areas to be dedicated for public use, and other such matters as the applicant may propose as conditions upon the request, but not to include conditions not generally a part of land development controls. In granting a Conditional Use Permit the Board of Aldermen may impose such additional reasonable and appropriate safeguards upon such permit as it may deem necessary in order that the purpose and intent of this Ordinance be served, public welfare secured and substantial justice done.
