Approval, Granting of Permit:
Upon holding a public hearing and the finding that the requirements of subsections 5.3.2 through 5.3.6 of this Ordinance have been satisfactorily met by the applicant, the Planning Commission shall within thirty (30) days recommend approval, approval with conditions, or denial to the Township Board.
Approval and issuance of a conditional use permit by the Township Board shall signify prior approval of the application and site plan, therefore including any modification and any conditions imposed where necessary to comply with this Ordinance. The site plan, as approved, and any statements of conditions and modifications shall become part of the condi- tional use permit and shall be enforceable as such.
The decision to approve or deny a request for a conditional use permit shall be retained as a part of the record of action on the request and shall incorporate a statement of conclusions which specify: the basis for the decision, any changes to the originally submitted application and site plan necessary to insure compliance with the ordinance, and any conditions imposed with approval. Once a conditional use permit is issued, all site development and use of land on the property affected shall be consistent with the approved special land use permit, unless a change conforming to Ordinance requirements receives the mutual agreement of the landowner and the Township Board upon recommendation of the Planning Commission and is documented as such.
When the Township Board gives final approval, a conditional use permit shall be issued to the applicant. The Township Board shall forward a copy of the permit to the applicant, Clerk, Zoning Administrator, and Planning Commission. The Zoning Administrator shall not issue a zoning compliance permit until he has received a copy of the conditional use permit approved by the Township Board.
In authorizing a conditional use permit, the Township Board may require that a cash deposit, certified check, irrevocable bank letter of credit, or surety bond be furnished by the developer to insure compliance with an approved site plan and the conditional use permit require- ments. Such guarantee shall be deposited with the Township Clerk at the time of the issuance of the conditional use permit. In fixing the amount of such performance guarantee, the Township Board shall limit it to reasonable improvements required to meet the standards of this Ordinance and to protect the natural resources or the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the township and future users or inhabitants of the proposed project or project area including, but not limited to roadways, lighting, utilities, sidewalks, screening, and drainage. The term "improvements" does not include the entire project which is the subject of zoning approval nor to improvements for which a performance guarantee has been deposited pursuant to Act No. 288 of 1967, as amended. The Township Board and the project developer shall establish an agreeable procedure for the rebate of any cash deposits
