Special Use Permit

A Special Use Permit (SUP) is a permit issued by the City Council that allows the establishment of certain uses, in certain districts, that are considered worthy of additional scrutiny in their proposed location. Such uses typically require special review for design, location, and impact on surrounding properties. These uses may be subject to additional City Council conditions. 

*An SUP alone is not sufficient to open for business. The business must also obtain a Certificate of Occupancy.
