A conditional use is a use that may be suitable in certain locations within a zoning district when prescribed conditions are met. Conditional uses are applied to motor-vehicle-oriented-businesses, adult businesses, public service facilities and elderly housing developments.
Permission for a conditional use involves the Planning Department, the Planning Commission, Borough Engineer, Borough Council, Design Review Board and, perhaps, the Historic Resources Commission.
Approval of a conditional use permit could take four months or longer, depending on the number of revisions necessary to make the plan acceptable. Anyone interested in submitting an application for a conditional use should contact the Planning Department to schedule a pre-submission conference to review plan requirements and procedures.
