    Sec. 35.1-47. General standards.
    All uses and structures for which a conditional use permit review permission is required shall conform to the following general standards:
    (a) The location and size of the use, the nature and intensity of the operations involved in or conducted in connection with it, the size of the site in relation to it and the location of the site with respect to streets giving access to it shall be such that it will be in harmony with the appropriate and orderly development of the district in which it is located.
    (b) The location, nature and height of buildings, walls and fences and the nature and extent of the landscaping on the site shall be such that the use will not hinder or discourage the appropriate development and use of adjacent land and buildings.
    (c) Operation in connection with any special use will not be more objectionable to nearby properties by reason of noise, fumes, vibration or other characteristics than would be the operations of any permitted use not requiring a special permit.
    (d) Parking areas will be of adequate size for the particular use, properly located and suitably screened from adjoining residential uses, and the entrance and exit drives shall be laid out so as to achieve maximum safety.
    (e) Public utility service (electricity, sewerage, storm drainage, and water) will be adequate to service the proposed use and will have suitable access thereto, and the proposal will not overburden existing facilities; or, any on-site water supply, sewage treatment, storm drainage disposal, or power plant proposals will be adequate to serve the proposed use.
    (f) In addition, uses shall conform to specific standards as set forth in the remainder of this article.
    (g) The site of the proposed development is served by public sewers and water supply, and waste disposal will be provided to an extent acceptable to the director of community services and the city health officer.  (Ord. No. O-13-034, 3-12-13)
