What is a special exception?
A special exception is a permitted use in a zoning district based on compliance with performance standards in the Development Regulations, if approved by the Board of Appeals. These uses are not permitted as a matter of right, and require consideration at a public hearing to determine compliance with the Development Regulations and possible neighborhood impact. Applications are available online or from the Planning Department at 705 E. Churchville Road.
