When can a special exception and/or a conditional use be revoked?
Review and revocation of special exceptions and conditional use permits.
A. Jurisdiction. The county board of county commissioners hereby reserves to itself the jurisdiction and authority to review and revoke conditional use permits or special exception uses.

B. Definitional provisions. As used with reference to the review and revocation of conditional use permits or special exception uses in accordance with this section, the term board shall mean the board of county commissioners.

C. Request for review.
1. Any person who is substantially and adversely affected by a conditional use or a special exception use which has been authorized by the board of county commissioners or planning commission may petition the board of county commissioners for a review of the said conditional use or special exception, at a public hearing where such use, or the continuation of such use:
a. Constitutes an annoyance to the community
b. Is injurious to the health, safety, or welfare of the community or of the public

d. Tends to attract vagrants, loiterers, or habitually intoxicated individuals

f. Results in a substantial depreciation or lowering of property values in the community or neighborhood

2. The affected person shall present a petition bearing the signature of at least ten property owners of the immediate affected area in which the conditional use or special exception is located, as a prerequisite to review of the conditional use permit or special exception by the board of county commissioners. The said petition shall be filed with the zoning administrator or his designee and, upon determination of probable cause as to the existence of the conditions recited by the petitioner, shall be presented to the board of county commissioners, with an indication as to the factual circumstances and reasons which necessitate review by the board of county commissioners. The applicant shall submit a fee to defray the cost of processing and reviewing the petition.

3. No petition shall be reviewed by the board of county commissioners where a previous review has already occurred in accordance with the procedures of this section, unless the petitioner demonstrates that a material change of circumstances has occurred since the last review. Petitions which do not allege facts which demonstrate a material change in circumstances may be summarily dismissed by the zoning administrator or the board of county commissioners, prior to the public hearing.

1. Upon presentation of a petition filed in accordance with the provisions of paragraph C.
2. Above, the board of county commissioners shall schedule a public hearing on the petition, for the purpose of reviewing the conditional use permit or special exception. Notice of the time and place of such hearing, and of the allegations contained in the petition, shall be given in writing to the party to whom the conditional use permit or special exception was issued. In addition, notice shall be given to adjoining property owners in the same manner as was required prior to the original grant of the conditional use permit or special exception by the board of county commissioners or planning commission, respectively. In addition, any publication of notice which is required prior to the grant of a conditional use permit or special exception by the board of county commissioners or planning commission shall be required. All notice required by this section shall be given in the same form and within the same time limits as is normally utilized in the consideration of an original grant of a conditional use permit or special exception.

2. At the public hearing, the board of county commissioners shall take testimony from all parties and, upon consideration of the evidence presented, shall have the authority to, upon a finding that the evidence establishes the existence of one or more criteria set forth in section 303.5C.1., above:
a. Revoke the conditional use permit or special exception approval; or
b. Permit the continuation of the conditional use or special exception, with additional conditions or stipulations. If no such finding is made, the board of county commissioners shall permit the continuation of the conditional use or special exception.

Petitions for the review of a conditional use permit or special exception approval would be submitted to the Permits and Development Information Department.
