The Planning and Zoning Commission must determine if the following requirements are met when reviewing a conditional use application:

1. The use or development is an appropriate conditional use in the land use zone.

2. The use or development, with conditions, conforms to the comprehensive land use plan.

3. The use with condition is compatible with the existing neighborhood.

4. The use with conditions would not be injurious to the public health, safety, welfare, decency, order, comfort, convenience, appearance or prosperity of the Township.
