Conditional Use Permits and Applications

Conditional Use permits are required for businesses that would like to be open after midnight, and uses such as bars, nightclubs and event venues. Applications for Conditional Use permits require review and recommendation by the City's Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) prior to approval. 

Technical Advisory Committee

The TAC includes representatives from the following City departments/divisions:

  • Fire 
  • Police 
  • Building Permit 
  • Business License
  • City Attorney
  • Economic Development 
  • Planning & Development

Permit Approval Process

Begin the application process by downloading a Conditional Use Application. Monthly application deadlines can be viewed on the TAC meeting calendar.  

Please complete the following two application forms:

Application for Conditional Use
Application for Zoning Compliance

The forms, accompanying documentation and fee may be submitted online or in person at the Planning & Development office on the 6th floor of City Hall before 2 p.m. Monday - Friday. 

Once an application is submitted, public notice is mailed to surrounding property owners and the application is posted on this web page. The public comment period is 15 days. 

The overall permit process takes approximately 4 - 5 weeks.
