§ 155.497  PUBLIC SERVICE USES.
   (A)   County public service uses. Due to the unique nature of certain county public service uses and the need to locate these uses in certain areas of the county irrespective of prevailing district regulations, York County may establish in any zoning district any public service use authorized to county government by S.C. Code § 4-9-30, as amended, or any other statue or law of the State of South Carolina; provided, however, that all office buildings will observe the bufferyard requirements for office buildings contained in this code, and all other uses will observe the bufferyard requirements for industrial uses contained in this code.
   (B)   Public hearing for county public service uses. Prior to the granting of a zoning compliance for county public service uses, a site plan in accordance with standards contained herein must be submitted and approved, and the York County Council will hold a public hearing on the matter at least 15 days notice of the time and place of which will be published in a newspaper of general circulation in York County. Notice will be given by adequately posting the properties affected, with at least one notice being visible from each public thoroughfare that abuts the property, at least 15 days prior to the public hearing. Based on the hearing and probable impact of such uses on contiguous uses and conditions, the Council may elect to deny the request in favor of a more acceptable site elsewhere.
   (C)   Other public service uses, bufferyard requirements and public hearing. All other public service uses may be established in any zoning district, provided, a site plan in accordance with standards contained herein is submitted and approved. The uses will observe the bufferyard requirements for industrial uses except post offices, police, fire and telephone repeater stations, which will observe the bufferyard requirements for office buildings. Prior to the granting of a zoning compliance for any other public service use, the Zoning Board of Appeals will hold a public hearing on the matter at least 15 days notice of the time and place of which will be published in a newspaper of general circulation in York County. Notice will be given by adequately posting the properties affected, with at least one notice being visible from each public thoroughfare that abuts the property, at least 15 days prior to the public hearing. Based on the hearing and probable impact of these uses on contiguous uses and conditions, the Zoning Board of Appeals may elect to deny the request in favor of a more acceptable site elsewhere.
   (D)   Written notification policy. The Planning and Development Services Department shall maintain a written notification policy that may be amended from time to time. This policy may include additional notice requirements that exceed minimum South Carolina statutory requirements.
   (E)   All notice provisions require substantial compliance.
