A. 
Authorization.
(1) 
Authorized board. The Zoning Board of Appeals and the Planning Board are hereby empowered and authorized to review and approve, approve with modifications and/or conditions, or disapprove special use permit applications as provided in this chapter.
(2) 
Scope of authorization.
(a) 
Zoning Board of Appeals. The Zoning Board of Appeals shall review and make judgments on the following special use permits:
[1] 
Home business.
[2] 
Sale of agricultural products.
(b) 
Planning Board. The Planning Board shall review and make judgments on all special use permits not listed in Subsection A(2)(a) above.
B. 
Purpose. The special use permit approval process seeks to ensure that certain uses are established in a manner that is appropriate and compatible to a site, adjoining properties, the neighborhood, and zoning district. These uses may be permitted if an applicant can demonstrate adherence to the specific regulations contained herein and provide adequate protection to the site, adjoining properties, the neighborhood, and zoning district. Due to the nature of the use and the potential for harm, the review of such applications requires sound planning judgment on a case-by-case basis.
C. 
Approval required. Where special use permit approval is required by this chapter, no building permit or certificate of occupancy shall be issued by any of the enforcement officials designated by § 500-83 until such special use permit has been approved by the authorized board as provided herein. In addition, no premises shall be occupied or used and no permanent certificate of occupancy shall be issued until all of the requirements of this chapter and any conditions of special use permit approval have been complied with. Where site plan review is also required by this chapter, site plan review shall be conducted contemporaneously with the review of the special use permit application. No authorization is granted for a waiver of the requirement to obtain a special use permit, and no authorization is granted to separate the review of the special use permit from the review of the site plan.
D. 
Violations. Upon written report or receipt of a notice of violation or an order to cease and desist from the enforcement official for a violation of this chapter, the authorized board shall not review, hold public meetings or public hearings, and shall take no action regarding an application for special use permit approval until notified by the enforcement official that such violation has been cured or ceased by the applicant. However, the Board may, upon recommendation of the enforcement official, review and act on an application involving property for which there is a violation where such application is a plan to cure the violation and bring the property or use of the property into compliance with this chapter.
E. 
Noncomplying uses deemed prohibited. Any use which is unable to meet the performance standards required in this article, as determined by the authorized board, shall be deemed a prohibited use, and a special use permit shall be denied by said Board.
F. 
Property owners to make application. All applications for special use permits shall be executed by the owner of the subject property authorizing the application and agreeing to be bound by the decision of the Board.
G. 
Applications. All applications for special use permit approval shall be in writing and on forms and in such quantity as may be prescribed by Article XI of this chapter. Incomplete applications may be rejected by the enforcement official, its clerks or designees, or the authorized board. Complete applications shall include:
(1) 
Plot plan. An application for a special use permit shall be accompanied by a plot plan for the proposed development of a site for a special use permit. Such plan shall show the location of all buildings, parking areas, traffic access and circulation drives, open spaces, landscaping and any other pertinent information that may be necessary to determine if the proposed special use meets with the requirements of this chapter.
(2) 
Architectural elevations. An application for a special use permit shall be accompanied by elevation drawings depicting proposed buildings. Where buildings already exist on the site, attention to depicting how new construction shall aesthetically blend with existing construction shall be required.
(3) 
Survey map of the property. An application for a special use permit shall be accompanied by an instrument survey map of the subject property.
(4) 
Electronic copy. An application for a special use permit shall be accompanied by an electronic copy of the application and attachments upon the request of the enforcement official in acceptable format.
(5) 
SEQR Forms. An application for a special use permit shall be accompanied by such forms and information necessary to comply with SEQR.
(6) 
Fees. An application for a special use permit shall be accompanied by an application fee as set by the Town Board by Town Board resolution. All application fees are in addition to any required escrow fees, and do not cover the cost of environmental review. The applicant shall be responsible for the total cost of environmental reviews that are determined to be necessary to meet the requirements of the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). If the Board requires professional review of the application by designated private planning, engineering, legal or other consultants, or if it incurs other extraordinary expense to review documents or conduct special studies in connection with the proposed application, reasonable fees shall be paid for by the applicant and an escrow deposit will be required pursuant to Chapter 266. Except for surplus escrow fees, all application fees are non-refundable.
(7) 
Additional Information. Where the authorized board requests additional information, the application will be deemed incomplete until such information is supplied. Should the applicant fail to supply such information, the authorized board may deny the application or deem it incomplete and abandoned by the applicant.
H. 
Public hearing. Within 62 days of receipt of a complete application, the authorized board shall hold a public hearing. Notice of said hearing shall comply with the provisions of § 500-86.
I. 
Time of decision. The authorized board shall decide the special use permit application within 62 days after the close of the public hearing, subject to compliance with the requirements of SEQRA and General Municipal Law §§ 239-l and 239-m. In rendering its decision, the Board shall approve, disapprove or approve with modifications and conditions the special use permit application. The time within which the Board must render its decision may be extended by mutual consent of the applicant and the Board. The decision of the Board shall be filed in the office of the Town Clerk within five business days of the date such decision is rendered and a copy thereof shall be mailed to the applicant. Failure of the authorized board to act within 62 days shall be deemed a denial of the application.
J. 
Expiration of special use permits.
(1) 
A special use permit shall expire one year after approval, unless a greater or lesser time is specified as a condition of approval. However, where substantial construction has been completed and substantial expenditures have been made in connection with the project pursuant to a lawfully issued special use permit prior to the expiration of the special use permit, such condition shall be automatically revoked.
(2) 
Where no construction is involved, the special use permit shall expire if the use has not been commenced within one year of final special use permit approval.
(3) 
In any case, a special use permit shall expire if the special use, once begun, ceases operation, for any reason, for more than six consecutive months. For seasonal uses, the use will be considered ceased if there is no operation for at least 12 consecutive months.
K. 
Renewal of special use permits with specified time periods. Special use permits that have been issued for a specific time period and have expired are subject to review for compliance with all of the conditions imposed at the time of approval of the initial permit. Following a public hearing on the application for renewal, the authorized board may decline to reissue the special permit only when it can be clearly demonstrated that the applicant has failed to comply with one or more of the conditions of the original approval, substantial new issues addressing the permit standards during the operation of the use or the general requirements of this chapter are not met.
L. 
Modifications to special permits. No expansion or modification of a use or its operation that is the subject of a special permit shall be permitted, except through the same process as required for initial approval of the special permit.
M. 
Compliance with SEQRA. The Zoning Board of Appeals shall comply with the provisions of the SEQRA under Article 8 of the Environmental Conservation Law and 6 NYCRR 617.
N. 
Relationship to variances. When necessary, the simultaneous review of a special use permit with an area variance for the same proposed development may occur and shall be coordinated among the appropriate reviewing boards. The Zoning Board of Appeals may simultaneously review and decide on an area variance from zoning dimensional requirements if such request is necessary. Only the Zoning Board of Appeals may grant an area variance and if the applicant desires an area variance, an area variance application shall also be made to the ZBA following the procedures found in this chapter.
O. 
Waivers compared to variances. Variances involving special use permits [Town Law § 274-b(3)] and waivers involving the review of special use permits [Town Law § 274-b(5)] serve distinct functions. Variances, under Town Law § 274-b(3), address the Zoning Board's power to grant area variances from area requirements associated with special use permits. Waivers, under Town Law § 274-b(5), on the other hand, deal with an authorized board's authorization to waive special use permit requirements. In contrast to a Zoning Board's unconditional grant of authority under § 274-b(3) to entertain area variance applications associated with special uses, an authorized board's power under § 274-b(5) to waive special use requirements must derive from further empowerment by the Town Board. Area variances only involve specific quantitative zoning requirements, such as setbacks, building heights, road frontage requirements, lot dimensions, etc. Special use permit standards which are qualitative, such as adequate landscaping, sufficient accommodation for pedestrian traffic, retention of significant natural features or similar types of local standards, are not subject to variance proceedings.
P. 
Scope of waiver empowerment to the authorized board.
(1) 
The Town grants and empowers the authorized board the authority to waive the following requirements of the special use permit process only:
(a) 
One or more of the qualitative standards found in Subsection R of this section, Standards for special use permits, which the authorized board finds are inapplicable to a particular application.
(b) 
Any of the following application material required by Subsection G of this section, Plot plans, architectural elevations, survey maps, which the authorized board finds are inapplicable to a particular application.
Q. 
Criteria for allowing special use permits.
(1) 
General provisions. Special use permits are hereby declared to possess characteristics which require that each specific use shall be considered on an individual basis. Any use for which a special use permit is granted by the authorized board shall be deemed a use permitted in the district in which located, except that for any additional use or enlargement of such use, a separate special use permit shall be required for each addition or enlargement. The proposed special use must meet all the conditions of that use, including basic use regulations specified in this chapter and as the authorized board may apply to any approval. In the case of a use existing prior to the effective date of this chapter and classified in this chapter as a special use permit, any change in use or in lot area or an alteration of structure shall conform with the requirements dealing with special use permits.
(2) 
Conditions; additional considerations. In permitting a special use permit or the modification of a special use permit, the authorized board may impose, in addition to those standards and requirements expressly specified by this chapter, any additional conditions which the Board considers necessary to protect the best interests of the site, the surrounding property, the neighborhood, the zoning district or the Town as a whole. These conditions may include, by way of example and without limitation: modifying the required lot size or yard dimensions; limiting the height of buildings; controlling the location and number, spacing or location of vehicle access points; increasing the street width; increasing the number of off-street parking and loading areas required; limiting the number, size and location of signs; and requiring diking, fencing, screening, landscaping or other facilities to protect adjacent or nearby property.
(3) 
Basis for deliberation; general provisions. Before issuing a special use permit, the authorized board shall take into consideration the public health, safety and welfare and shall assure itself of the following:
(a) 
That there shall not be any detrimental effect by the establishment of such use on other uses within the district.
(b) 
That such use will be in harmony with the orderly development of the district and the location, nature and height of buildings, walls, fences, parking areas and other improvements will not discourage the appropriate development, use and enjoyment of adjacent lands.
(c) 
That all structures, equipment and materials shall be reasonably accessible for fire and police protection.
(d) 
That the use meets the prescribed requirements for the district in which located, including minimum yard requirements for the district in which located or as further specified in this section and including maximum height, required off-street parking and sign regulations.
(e) 
That the use is listed as a permitted special use in the appropriate zoning district.
(f) 
General codes compliance. That the proposed use or structure shall comply with the applicable intent and regulations of this chapter, including the specific zone district in which it is located, and to any other applicable Town, county, state or federal regulations.
(g) 
Conformance to Town planning. That the proposed use or structure shall be so located and designed that it is compatible in size and character to existing patterns of development and land uses and/or is consistent with the long-term development objectives for the affected portions of the Town.
R. 
Standards for special use permits. In granting any special use permit, the authorized board shall take into consideration the public health, safety and general welfare of the Town, and the comfort and convenience of the public in general, in the Town and of the immediate neighborhood in particular. The Board may require modifications and/or conditions to an application, including submission of alternative design and layout proposals, and may attach reasonable conditions and safeguards on its approval to eliminate or minimize potential impacts on surrounding properties and the community in general as a condition of its approval. Before making a decision on whether to approve, approve with modifications, or disapprove a special use permit, the Board shall give specific consideration to the following standards, and the Board is hereby authorized to use its discretion to determine whether one or more of these standards apply to any particular application:
(1) 
Preserving and protecting existing development. 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, use and enjoyment of adjacent land and buildings or impair the value thereof. Where proposed commercial development adjoins residentially zoned or developed lands, special attention will be required to screen and preserve the residential viewshed.
(2) 
Drainage and stormwater. The proposed use shall be designed to avoid flooding, property damage from flooding and nuisance flooding on the site or other properties.
(3) 
Traffic access.

Parking. Adequate off-street parking and loading spaces shall be provided in accordance with the off-street parking and loading requirements of this chapter and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Provision shall be made for adequate snow storage outside of parking areas.
(5) 
Circulation. The interior circulation system shall be adequate to provide safe accessibility to all required off-street parking, and to provide for the convenience and safety of vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle movement within the site and in relation to adjacent areas or roads.
(6) 
Landscaping and screening. All parking, HVAC, dumpsters, and service areas shall be reasonably screened during all seasons of the year from the view of adjacent residential lots and streets, and the general landscaping of the site should be in character with that generally prevailing in the neighborhood. Existing trees 12 inches or more in diameter at chest height should be preserved to the maximum extent practical.
(7) 
Character and appearance. The character and appearance of the proposed use, buildings, structures, outdoor signs, and lighting shall be in general harmony with the character and appearance of the surrounding neighborhood, and shall not adversely affect the general welfare of the inhabitants of the Town.
(8) 
Lighting and glare. Lighting shall be Dark Sky compliant. No direct or reflective glare from any lighting or process shall be permitted where such will interfere with traffic safety or the useful enjoyment of adjoining properties.
(9) 
Historic and natural resources. The proposed use shall be designed and should be carried out in a manner that minimizes impacts to protect historic and natural environmental features on the site under and in adjacent areas.
(10) 
Sewage treatment and water supply. The adequacy of available sewage disposal and water supply services supporting the proposed activity or use shall be sufficient to meet the needs of the proposed activity or use. This consideration should be given to both, including, but not limited to, the suitability of water supply and sanitary sewage facilities to accommodate the intended use, and the adequacy of measures to protect surface water and groundwater from pollution.
(11) 
Discharge of water. No polluting or objectionable waste shall be discharged into any stream or other natural drainage channel or upon the land that will in any way interfere with the quality, operation or continuation of these natural systems or contribute to their despoliation.

(13) 
Fire and explosion hazards. All activities involving the storage of flammable and explosive materials shall be provided with adequate safety devices against the hazard of fire and explosion. Methods of prevention and suppression of these hazards shall be approved by the local officials responsible for fire prevention and public safety.
(14) 
Nuisances and objectionable conditions. The proposed use shall not be more objectionable to nearby property owners or occupants by reason of noise, radioactivity, pollution, fumes, vibration, odors, smoke, erosion or lighting than would the operations of a permitted use. The proposed use shall comply with the requirements of this chapter, including without limitation, the prohibition against objectionable conditions at § 500-61.
(15) 
Size and scale. The location and size of the proposed use, the nature and intensity of operations involved in or conducted in connection therewith, and the size of the site in relation to the use, its site layout and its relation to existing and future access streets should 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 incongruous with, or conflict with the normal traffic of the neighborhood.
(16) 
Additional safeguards and conditions. The authorized board shall impose additional conditions and safeguards upon the special use permit as may be reasonably necessary to assure continual conformance to all applicable standards and requirements, including temporary limitations, restrictions on hours of operation and reasonable assurances that these standards and requirements conditions and safeguards can be responsibly monitored and enforced.

Purpose and intent.
(1) 
It is the purpose and intent of this section to provide for the regulation of licensed massage therapists, massage practitioners and massage establishments in the interests of the health, safety and general welfare of the people within the Town of Chili and the visitors thereto.
(2) 
The Town Board of the Town of Chili further recognizes that, unless properly regulated, the unlicensed or unauthorized practice of massage therapy and the operation of massage businesses may be associated with unlawful activity and pose a threat to the quality of life in the local community. Accordingly, it is the purpose and intent of this section to protect the public health, safety, and welfare by providing for the orderly regulation of businesses providing massage therapy services, discouraging prostitution and any other illegal activities carried on under the guise of massage therapy, acupressure, body rubs or other body-to-body contact, and establishing certain sanitation, health, and operational standards for massage businesses.

Furthermore, it is the purpose and intent of this section to address the negative impacts identified in the Town's findings at the time of adoption of this section to reduce or prevent neighborhood blight and to protect and preserve the quality of the neighborhoods, commercial districts and to enhance enforcement of criminal statutes relating to the conduct of operators and employees of nonlicensed businesses engaged in massage.
