Application & references
What is a temporary use permit and when is it required?
A Temporary Use Permit will temporarily allow some uses in zoning districts where they would otherwise not be permitted. Examples include temporary buildings used during remodeling, and seasonal uses, such as Christmas tree sales (which would not otherwise be permitted outdoors or on properties not zoned commercial, such as schools and churches).
Short-term events such as carnivals, block parties, festivals, or anything involving a street closure should request a Special Event Permit from the Special Event Coordinator.
To request a Temporary Use Permit, please complete the temporary use permit application and return it to the Planning & Development Services Department with the $50 application fee. Include a sketch site diagram indicating signs, structures, fences/enclosures and parking. Please allow at least two weeks for the application to be processed. Approval is at the discretion of the Zoning Administrator.
Temporary signs promoting the use are limited in size to 40 sq. ft. per street frontage. Signs are only permitted on site and may not be placed in the right-of-way.
