WHEREAS, the approval was made because of the city planning commission's findings that appropriate safeguards will exist to protect the comprehensive plan and to conserve and to protect property values in the neighborhood if conditions are observed.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that a special use permit is hereby granted to Christine Schafer to allow for the operation of a home beauty salon at 4508 Oakley Street, on the following conditions:
(a) That the operation be limited to and maintained in perpetual compliance with Section 51-35(r) and in accordance with the plans as identified as Public Document No. _____________________;
(b) That the necessary inspections are received; and
(c) That the term of the permit run for ten years at which time renewal may be considered.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution grants a special use permit to Christine Schafer for a one-chair home beauty salon at 4508 Oakley Street. The planning commission unanimously approved this resolution at its December 9, 2003, meeting.

The staff offered and the commission recommended approval based in part on the following findings:
1. Will the proposed special use result in a random pattern of development with little contiguity to existing or programmed development? No. The primary use of the property as a residence will continue. Any additional traffic will be no different from that of a residence with guests.
2. Will the requested use cause anticipated negative fiscal or environmental impacts upon the community? No. The primary use of the property as a residence will continue. There will be no fiscal or environmental impacts.
3. Will conditions and safeguards protect the comprehensive plan and conserve and protect property and property values in the neighborhood? Yes, the permittee must maintain compliance with the terms of this permit and the requirements of the City Code.
4. What appropriate conditions and safeguards, including performance bonds and a specified period of time for the permit, are necessary? Based on prior permits of this nature, only one additional condition is suggested - that being a term of ten years for the permit, at which time renewal may be considered. No other conditions or safeguards have been identified as of this writing.
