Section 175-136 SPECIAL USE PERMITS
Where uses are permitted by special permit, the location and beginning of operation of such uses shall require, in addition to the zoning permit and certificate of occupancy, a special use permit. The issuance of these permits shall be subject to such conditions as are required in this chapter and such conditions as are deemed necessary by the Front Royal Town Council, after recommendations of the Front Royal Planning Commission. At a minimum, a special use permit may only be permitted, when Town Council determines that the use (i) is not detrimental to the overall health, safety and general welfare of the public, (ii) does not conflict with the Comprehensive Plan, (iii) is substantially compatible with surrounding land uses, and (iv) complies with laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Application for a special use permit shall be made to the Zoning Administrator, and a public hearing shall be held in accordance with the provisions of Virginia Code §15.2-2204 or §15.2-2286. Special use permits are not transferable to another party. In the event that a special use request is denied, the same special use request, or substantially the same special use request, shall not be considered by the Town Council or the Board of Zoning Appeals for a period of one (1) year from the date on which the special use permit request was denied.
