7.A. ZONING TEXT AMENDMENT ZTX-20-01: A text amendment to the Zoning Ordinance regarding the location and regulation of Outpatient substance abuse

treatment clinics.
Tagged Interests: regulation, ordinance, and zoning

Background: After reviewing the Zoning Ordinance, medical uses operating as outpatient substance abuse treatment clinics do not appear as a listed

permitted use within any of the current zoning districts. For example, the Highway Commercial (HC) zoning district allows hospitals, clinics, nursing and convalescent homes as permitted uses, but not specifically for outpatient treatment of substance abuse. Therefore, the proposed amendment seeks to clarify where specific medical clinics such as these might be allowed.
Tagged Interests: ordinance, hospital, zoning, healthcare, and commercial

Proposed Changes: Staff is proposing a text amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to add outpatient substance abuse treatment clinics to the Limited

Industrial (LI) zoning district as a special exception. The Board of Zoning Appeals would consider this type of use request based upon listed criteria for special exceptions found in Article X, Sec. 23-161. - Powers and duties of the Zoning Ordinance. The criteria is as follows:
Tagged Interests: ordinance, industrial, and zoning

(3) Decide special exceptions: To hear and decide special exceptions upon which the board is required to pass under the terms of this chapter. In its

Tagged Interests: zoning

(a) That the special exception complies with all applicable development standards, off-street parking; and

(b) That the special exception will be in substantial harmony with the area in which it is to be located.

(c) That the special exception will not be injurious to adjoining property;

Tagged Interests: property

(e) In approving a special exception, the board of zoning appeals may impose such reasonable and additional stipulations, conditions, or safeguards

as, in its judgement, will enhance its siting.
Tagged Interests: zoning

as presented, approve the application with specified modifications, or disapprove the application.
Tagged Interests: zoning and hearing
