Special Exceptions

In order to accomplish the general purposes of the Martinsburg Zoning Ordinance, certain unusual uses need special consideration. They require large land areas or need special regulations to achieve compatibility with the existing or planned future development. Often the effects of these uses on the surrounding environment cannot be foreseen until a specific site has been proposed. They must be given special consideration and located relative to the existing and planned future development pattern. They are not permitted automatically, but are subject to the general regulations, the design requirements of Article VI and the conditions imposed in a Special Exception permit issued by the Board of Zoning Appeals under this Ordinance.
