(6) Guidelines for Review of "Uses Permitted Upon Review.” In order to accomplish the purpose and intent of this section, it is necessary to give special consideration to certain uses because they are unique in nature, require large land areas, require greater density, are potentially incompatible with existing development or because effects of such uses cannot definitely be foreseen, or more intensively dominate the area in which they are located than do other uses permitted in the district; however, the nature of such uses makes it desirable that it be permitted to locate therein. Therefore, these uses must be specifically placed into the development pattern which exists at the time of their arrival. In order to properly review the proposed “Uses Permitted on Review,” the following guidelines shall be used by the Planning Commission and city council in considering the application.
(a) The proposed use and site plan conform to the purpose and intent of this Article.
(b) The proposed use complies with the Comprehensive Plan.
(c) The proposed use and site plan will not be objectionable or detrimental to the public welfare of the community under the circumstances of the particular case regarding setback, height, density and similar aspects.
