• The conditional use will impede the normal, orderly development or improvement of surrounding vacant property for uses predominant to the area.

• There are not adequate utilities, access roads, drainage, soil erosion control measures, or other necessary facilities for the business.

• Adequate measures have not been addressed to prevent or control offensive odor, fumes, dust, noise, vibration, or light so as to keep the business from being a nuisance or disturbance to the neighbors.

• Other factors bearing on public health, safety, and welfare that would dictate either approval or granting of the conditional use permit have not been adequately addressed.
