SPECIAL USES
Certain uses or exceptions are permitted in some zoning districts only when a special use permit has been obtained
from the Governing Body. Such uses require special study with respect to specific location and design
considerations to assure that they will have minimal negative impact on surrounding properties.
1. The applicant shall first obtain the proper application form from the Office of the Codes Administrator.
2. The special use permit application form shall be completely filled out and returned to the Office of the
Codes Administrator with the appropriate filing fee and required information. An application shall not be
scheduled for public hearing until the application form has been fully completed, the fee paid, and all
required information submitted.
3. The Office of the Codes Administrator shall be responsible for having an official notice of the public
hearing published in a newspaper of general circulation at least twenty (20) days prior to the hearing. The
Office of the Codes Administrator shall be responsible for following the administrative procedures for a
special use permit as prescribed in the adopted zoning regulations. The notice shall fix the time and place of
the hearing and shall describe generally the special use permit requested.
A written notice of the public hearing shall also be mailed, return receipt requested, by the applicant to
surrounding property owners within:
A. 200 feet of the property if the proposed PUD is located within the City’s municipal boundaries;
B. 1000 feet of the property if the proposed PUD is located within the City of Louisburg Growth
Area;
C. 1,000 feet of the property if the proposed PUD is adjacent to the city’s corporate limits.
The notice shall inform surrounding property owners of the right to file protest petitions of the planning
commission’s recommendation and shall explain the protest procedure. Said notice shall be mailed at least
twenty (20) days before the hearing at which said Special Use Permit application is scheduled to be
considered. Such notice shall fix the time and place for such hearing as determined by the Codes
Administrator and shall contain the following:
A statement regarding the proposed Special Use;
A legal description or general description that is sufficient to identify the property under consideration;
and
A statement that a complete legal description is available for public inspection and shall indicate where
such information is available.
The applicant shall furnish all return receipts to the Codes Administrators Office. Such notice is sufficient to
permit the Planning Commission to take action on a proposed Special Use Permit application as described in
such notice.
4. The Planning Commission shall hold a public hearing at which time citizens and parties of interest shall
have an opportunity to be heard.
5. The public hearing may be adjourned from time to time and, upon its conclusion, the Planning Commission
shall prepare and adopt its recommendation to the Governing Body. This recommendation shall be
submitted along with an accurate record of the public hearing.
