Special Exemption Use

Special Exemption Use


A special exception is a use that would not be appropriate without restriction, but which, if controlled as to number, area, location or relation to the surrounding area, would promote the public health, safety and general welfare.  Such use may be permitted in a zoning district as a special exception only if identified as such in the Land Development Regulations.

Written application shall be made to the Town for a special exception in accordance with the procedures established in the Land Development Regulations, Developmental Procedures and Regulations chapter. The completed application must be submitted at least 30 days prior to a regularly scheduled Technical Review Committee (TRC) meeting to be considered at that meeting.  The applicant shall provide a conceptual site plan showing buildings, parking and access locations, utility service points, proposed screening or buffering if appropriate and any other information or supplemental details. In addition, applicant must submit a written statement addressing the Review Criteria described in Chapter 6, Section 2, e), 2). and addressing any specific requirements for such use as described in Chapter 6, Section 2, g), of the Land Development Regulations.

In granting any special exception, the Town Commission may prescribe appropriate conditions and safeguards to ensure compliance with the requirements of Chapter 6 of the Land Development Regulations and the Code in general.  Such conditions may include time limits for the initiation of the special exception use, specific minimum or maximum limits to regular Code requirements, or any other conditions reasonably related to the requirements and criteria of Chapter 6 of the Land Development Regulations.

The above requirements are intended to provide a general overview of the special exception use process.  Other requirements and conditions are specified in Lady Lake Ordinance 94-08, Land Development Regulations, Chapter 6, adopted August 15, 1994 and are available at Town Hall for your information.
