CUP = Conditional Use Permit. Means that the City or the permitting agency requires certain conditions be met before the property can be approved for the change of zoning or the owner be allowed to proceed with development. There is usually an ono refundable application fee.

Conditional Use Permit. The zoning authority will allow a use that is outside the zoning uses that the property is in. Often it stems from a change in the zoning that would make the existing use outside the new use. Check with the local authority to see what a CUP means for a particular property.
