(b) Will not be detrimental to property values in the immediate vicinity.
(c) Will not restrict or adversely affect the existing use of the adjacent property owners.
(d) Will be designed and constructed so that all access drives, access points to public streets, driveways, parking and service areas shall be in compliance with the regulations set forth in Chapter 1284.

(j) Adequate utilities, access roads, drainage and/or necessary facilities have been or are being provided.
(k) Adequate measures have been or will be taken to provide ingress and egress designed to minimize traffic congestion on the surrounding public streets.
(l) The establishment of the conditional use should not be detrimental to the economic welfare of the community by creating excessive additional requirements at public cost for public facilities such as police, fire and schools.
(m) There is minimal potential for future hardship on the conditional use that could result from the proposed use being surrounded by uses permitted by right that may be incompatible.
