§ 147.13.2.11.8 - Heliports

A special exception may be granted to permit private/noncommercial heliports, as accessory to any approved use. The requirement for a special exception to be granted under this section shall not be applied to the use of helicopters, or any other type of aircraft, being used on a temporary basis for such purposes as emergency response, medical necessity, ongoing construction projects that have been permitted by the Town of Conway, or temporary (less than 7 days) news media coverage. Before a special exception for a heliport can be granted by the Zoning Board the following conditions must be met:

  • 147.13.2.11.8.1 The use of the site for a heliport shall not be offensive to the character of the neighborhood;
  • 147.13.2.11.8.2 The use of the site for a heliport shall not decrease abutting property values. Evidence supporting property values must be submitted by any party with an interest in the granting of the special exception from a creditable source that is knowledgeable of land evaluation and property values.
  • 147.13.2.11.8.3 Any site being considered to contain a heliport must be, at a minimum, five (5) acres in size;
  • 147.13.2.11.8.4 Other site dimensions, above and beyond the overall acreage requirement listed above, shall be sufficient to provide safety areas suitable to meet all FAA suggested dimensions and requirements;
  • 147.13.2.11.8.5 Previous to zoning board considering any application for a special exception for this land use, all Federal and State approvals, which are required must be obtained by the applicant with copies of these approvals submitted as part of the request for special exception, and
  • 147.13.2.11.8.6 A major site plan approval shall be required of the applicant from the Planning Board for the heliport, which is accessory to an approved business. As a condition for the granting of the special exception, no use of the heliport may be engaged by the applicant until all conditions of the special exception, including a major site plan approval, have been satisfied by the applicant.
