Conditional Use Permits (CUP) amend zoning classifications on a discretionary and conditional basis. A conditional use permit is governed by Section 25 of the Austin Land Development Code (LDC). According to the LDC, a CUP is required to allow the sale of beer and wine on land zoned as Public (P). When concerning parks and recreation services, the CUP Application process usually takes about 6 months and undergoes a full review within the Development Services Department culminating in review and approval by both the Parks and Recreation Board (PARB) and the Planning Commission. After Planning Commission approval, the area defined for the CUP will then be changed from P zoning to P-Park and Recreation Services (Special).
