The City cited CIM for construction of the scale house without the required City review and building approvals. Hugo Neu Proler, the parent company of CIM at the time, submitted a development application requesting the approval of the metal structure (DAP-000-546, December 20, 2005) in order to comply with the City municipal codes. The City required that the Applicant process their request through a Modification of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) because the initial approval to establish the metal recycling facility at the site was approved with a CUP by the City Council in 1967. During the design review process, the City determined numerous unpermitted improvements had been made to the site. The 1967 CUP included a corrugated steel warehouse and office that is still in use. Subsequent expansion of the work and storage areas have resulted in the following unpermitted improvements: scales and scale house, metal shed, stormwater collection/storage/treatment system, steel walls for storage areas, patio cover, above ground diesel and other fluid tanks, and portable car crusher as well as expanded electrical service. The original CUP Conditions of Approval required an 8-foot fence to be constructed around the facilities, rather than the 6-foot fence that was constructed in1982.
