Conditional Use Permit
TMC Section 10.08.4250 – 10.08.4420
What is a Conditional Use Permit?
Every parcel within the City of Tracy is located within a specific zone district. Each zone district includes a list of permitted uses and conditionally permitted uses. A Conditional Use Permit is a discretionary approval for a specific land use that may or may not be appropriate for a given location. Questions related to zoning and Conditional Use Permit requirements can be answered by a Planner in the City’s Development and Engineering Services Department.
Development application forms, general submittal requirements, and the fee schedule are available on the City’s website and at the front counter of the Development and Engineering Services Department. A City Planner will assist you through the process.
City review includes routing application materials to multiple City departments and other agencies for comments. The comments are compiled into a comprehensive letter to the applicant, which details incomplete items, applicable requirements and staff recommendations. Once the application is deemed complete and all requirements are met, City staff will prepare the project for public hearing (step 4).
Some projects require additional information or clarification by the applicant and this step is the applicant’s response to those requirements. The applicant’s response will be reviewed by the City and steps 2 and 3 may be repeated if necessary.
