Approval of a transient business permit is subject to the following conditions.
   (A)   Transient merchants are permitted in all commercial and industrial zoning districts (C-1, C-2, C-3, I-1 and I-2).
   (B)   A copy of a lease agreement, deed or similar document from the property owner is required.
   (C)   All signage must comply with the Chapter 26 of the Zoning Ordinance.
   (D)   Transient merchants may not be permitted at a location more than 90 days per calendar year. The owner/operator may reapply for a permit at the end of their duration, but the transient merchant must be relocated at a minimum of 1,000 feet (measured in radial distance) from the prior location.
   (E)   A site plan must be submitted for review and approval. The site plan shall include a mapped location of the proposed business, including existing parking spaces, roadways, sidewalks and buildings; it should also entail measurements of distance from proposed display/enclosure to nearby parking spaces, roadways, sidewalks, setbacks and buildings. Aerial photography, existing surveys or plat will suffice for this purpose. The site plan shall include any photography of tents, trailers, stands and the like that will be used. The city has the right to review and/or reject any site plan submitted. Once approved by the city, all site plans must be maintained by the transient merchant with the duration of the permit. Any deviation from the site plan by the transient merchant may result in revocation of the permit and the business activity shall be terminated.
   (F)   If a transient merchant distributes or prepares food products, a copy of a permit issued by the County Environmental Health is required to be kept on file. Revocation of the permit will constitute revocation of the transient merchant license.
   (G)   The provisions of this subchapter shall not apply to any general sale, fair, auction, Loco Daze or bazaar sponsored by any religious, education, public service or charitable organization.
