City of San Mateo Municipal Code.


(a) The Zoning Administrator shall consider the proposed location of the temporary use and its probable effect on the surrounding neighborhood. To protect the public welfare, the Zoning Administrator may deny any application for a temporary use permit, or may grant such a permit subject to conditions. Such conditions may relate, among other things, to provisions for traffic circulation, parking, lighting, security, fire protection, noise and pollution control. Time limits less than 30 days may be attached to the use permit.

(b) Violation of any condition imposed on any temporary use permit shall be grounds for its revocation by the Zoning Administrator. No temporary use permit shall be granted for any use which overburdens the City's public services, or which will place an unreasonable burden on nearby properties or residents.
