Mailed to Property Owners Within 200' : 22 Response Received: One inquiry as of date of staff report STAFF CONEVIENTS: Conditional use permits are granted by the Commission, subject to appropriate conditions and afeguards, when the Commission finds: A. .That the proposed use meets all the minimum standards established in the Zoning ordinance for this type of use;. _. __ __ B. That the: proposed use is in .harmony with the purpose and intent of .the zoning ordinance and the plan for physical development of the district as embodied in the comprehensive plan for the development of the City; G. That the proposed use will not be detrimental to the health,. welfare, and ' safety of the surrounding neighborhood or its. occupants, nor be substantially`or permanently injurious to neighboring property. (See sec. 14, Ordinance 1638) For the purposes of this case., the sign should meet all of the above criteria as well. ..The proposed sign will be 1$.5' tall'and be located on the 2818 frontage near the property line. Due to the large amount of right-of-way in the area, the .sign will be placed. slightly over 170' feet from.: the actual traveled portion of 2818. The church could have a sign .that meets. R-6 restrictions without. additional P&Z review. However, these restrictions would not allow placement of the sign within the first ten feet of the property frontage. Therefore, the church is requesting to use G 1 requirements, which would allow a 'sign closer to 2818. The sign :does comply with C- 1sign restrictions and is in fact well below the maximum area and height that would ordinarily be allowed on commercially zoned property. I I I
