What is a Conditional Use Permit (CUP)?

A conditional use permit is a type of Planning permit which allows flexibility in providing for, regulating, or preventing various uses, so they will be compatible with existing or desired conditions in their neighborhoods. Conditions of approval, such as limited hours of operation, parking requirements, signage or other requirements can be applied to projects to help reduce or avoid their negative impacts and improve their compatibility with the neighborhood.
