What is a Special Exception?
A Special Exception is:
* a non-retail use not permitted in the current zoning district
* given on a yearly basis only during the occupancy or ownership of the person to whom it was granted, and upon their vacating the property or structure, the property and/or structure shall revert to the original use.

A Special Exception does not:
* change the general zoning of the property
* permit off street parking within the required front yard setback;
* allow any change in integrity and appearance of the property or the existing structure that would be contrary to the desired character of the district
