In approving any such use, the Town Board shall take into consideration the public health, safety and welfare and the comfort and convenience of the public in general and of the residents of the immediate neighborhood in particular, and may prescribe appropriate conditions and safeguards as may be required in order that the result of its action shall, to the maximum extent possible, further the expressed intent of this chapter and the accomplishment of the following objectives in particular:
That all proposed structures, equipment or material shall be readily accessible for fire and police protection.
That the proposed use shall be of such location, size and character that, in general, it will be in harmony with the appropriate and orderly development of the district in which it is proposed to be situated and will not be detrimental to the orderly development of adjacent properties in accordance with the zoning classification of such properties.
That, in addition to the above, in the case of any use located in or directly adjacent to a residential district:
The location and size of such use, the nature and intensity of operations involved in or in connection therewith, its site layout and its relation to access streets shall be such that both pedestrian and vehicular traffic to and from the use and the assembly of persons in connection therewith will not be hazardous or inconvenient to or in conflict with the normal traffic of the neighborhood.
The location and height of buildings, the location, nature and height of walls and fences, and the nature and extent of landscaping on the site shall be such that the use will not hinder or discourage the appropriate development and use of adjacent land and buildings.
Each application for a special permit use shall be accompanied by a proposed plan showing the size and location of the lot and the location of all buildings and proposed facilities, including access drives, parking areas and all streets within 200 feet of the lot.
