City of Williston
50NW Main St
Williston, FL 32696


For more information please call 352-528-3060.


PART A. BASIC INFORMATION -PLEASE READ BEFORE COMPLETING

A special exception is required for any use listed under the Special Exception sections
of Chapter 60- Zoning. Generally, these uses have particular impacts on the property

and surrounding properties.

A special exception is not a variance. A variance changes a specific requirement of the

zoning regulations, but a special exception is a conditional permit for a specific use.

Special exceptions are approved by the City Council, but are submitted through the
Planning and Zoning Commission who complete a report upon the proposed use and

forward their recommendation (for either approval or denial) to the City Council.

Once an application for a special exception has been submitted and the application feehas been paid, the
Planning and Zoning Staff will begin processing the application. An applicant should

expect a hearing to be held to consider their application within four to six weeks.

The applicant will be notified of any public hearings or special meetings held in regards

to their application.

If the City Council denies the application, the record will show the reasons for the denial.


Staff Use Only
