The City of Joseph hereby gives notice of a public hearing to consider the request of Robert Dawson for a conditional use permit to construct a professional photo studio, publishing business and home in the Industrial Zone located at 811 Russell Lane; 2S4530, Tax Lot 605.

Following are the specific criteria which will be applied to this application. Zoning ordinance Sections 1.020; 1.030; 1.040; 1.050; 3.100; 3.110; 3.120; 4.080; 4.090; 6.010; 6.020; 6.040; 6.050; 10.030; 10.050; 10.060; 10.070. All land use applications are subject to the general ordinance requirements contained as in Article 10.

Those with an interest in the application are invited to appear at the hearing and place their testimony on record for council deliberation.

Failure to raise an issue with sufficient specificity to afford the decision maker and the parties an opportunity to respond to the issue precludes an appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals based on that issue.
