Certain uses within individual zoning districts are designated special uses, which are uses that may or may not be conditioned to be appropriate in a particular location depending upon the nature of the proposed use, its relationship to the surrounding land uses, its impact on traffic capacities, and potential environmental effects. Special uses require a public hearing before the Planning Commission and City Council.
A pre-application meeting with city staff is required before submitting a formal application.
Application fees are due at time of submission.
Completed applications with accompanying required documents should be submitted to the Lafayette Planning and Building Department, City Hall, 1290 South Public Road.
