Any application for a conditional zoning certificate for any land or structure use permitted under this Zoning Ordinance shall be submitted in accordance with the following procedures:
(a) Application Submitted to Zoning Inspector. An application shall be submitted to the Zoning Inspector on a special form for that purpose, supplied by the Zoning Inspector. Each application shall be accompanied by the payment of a fee, which fee shall not be refundable. In addition, the Planning Commission, where appropriate, may refer an application to qualified consultants for a report if it deems the proposed use may cause the emission of dangerous or objectionable elements or require a special study. The cost of such report shall be at the expense of the applicant and said report shall be furnished to the Planning Commission as soon as it is practicable.
(b) Data Required With Application.
(1) Form supplied by Zoning Inspector and completed by applicant.
(2) Site plan, plot plan or development plan of the entire property being considered, drawn to a reasonable scale and showing the location of all abutting streets, the location of all existing and proposed structures, the types of buildings and their uses.
(3) Complete plans and specifications for all proposed development and construction.
(4) A statement supported by substantiating evidence regarding the requirements enumerated in Section 1274.03 below.
(c) Review by Planning Commission. The Planning Commission shall review the proposed development, as presented on the submitted plans and specifications in terms of the standards established in this Code.
(d) Hearing. The Planning Commission shall hold a public hearing or hearings upon every application after at least one publication in a newspaper of general circulation in the Village at least ten days prior to the date of the hearing. Such notice shall indicate the place, time, and subject of the hearing.
(e) Issuance and Revocation of Conditional Zoning Certificates, Violation and Penalty. Only upon conclusion of hearing procedures relative to a particular application and adequate review and study may the Planning Commission issue a conditional zoning certificate. The breach of any condition, safeguard, or requirement shall constitute a violation of this Zoning Ordinance. Such violation shall be punishable as per Section 1260.15 .
(f) Reapplication. No application for a conditional zoning certificate which has been denied wholly or in part by the Planning Commission may be resubmitted, except on grounds of newly discovered evidence or proof of changed conditions which would be sufficient to justify reconsideration, as determined by the Planning Commission.
(g) Continuation of Existing Uses Conditionally Permissible. All uses existing at the time of passage of this Zoning Ordinance and conditionally permissible in their respective districts under this Zoning Ordinance, may request that a conditional zoning certificate be issued by the Planning Commission.
