§ 51-14. Expansion, Alteration or Relocation of Facilities.  
A.
Relocation. No motor sports facility shall relocate without first submitting a new 
application and securing a new permit. Such applicant shall be required to fully comply 
with all requirements applicable to new motor sports facilities as contained in this 
Chapter. Failure to secure a permit for relocation will be deemed a violation of this 
Chapter.  
B.
Alteration. Any alteration of the operations of a motor sports facility shall be allowed as 
long as such alterations do not have the result of an expansion or violate a condition of a 
permit. If an alteration would result in the violation of a condition of a permit, then an 
application for an amendment to the special permit must be submitted and processed in 
accordance with this section and § 51-15; otherwise such alteration will be deemed a 
violation of this Chapter.  
C.
Expansion of a minor motor sports facility.  
(1)
A minor motor sports facility may expand or alter its facilities or operations 
without any additional restrictions and without securing an amendment to the 
permit if the conditions of the permit, if any, will not be violated and if the size 
of the facility after the proposed expansion or alteration would not be increased 
to the point that the facility would be considered a major facility.  
(2)
If any condition of a permit of a minor motor sports facility will be violated by a
proposed expansion or alteration to operations, then an application for an 
amendment to the permit must be submitted and processed in accordance with 
this section and § 51-15; otherwise such expansion or alteration will be  
deemed a violation of this Chapter.  
(3)
In the event that the size of the facility after the proposed expansion or alteration
is such that the facility would be considered  a major facility, then an application
for a new permit must be submitted and processed and the applicant shall be 
required to fully comply with all requirements applicable to new major motor 
sports facilities as contained in this Chapter. Failure to secure such amendment 
will be deemed a violation of this Chapter.    
D.
Expansion of a major motor sports facility. A major motor sports facility may expand or 
alter its facilities or operations without any additional restrictions and without securing an
amendment to the permit if the conditions of the permit, if any, will not be violated and if
the seating capacity of the facility is increased by not more than 20% over any 3 year 
period.  
(1)
Special permits.  
a.
If any condition of a special permit of a major motor sports facility will
be violated by the proposed expansion or alteration then an application 
for an amendment to the permit must be submitted and processed in 
accordance with this section and § 51-15; otherwise such expansion 
or alteration will be deemed a violation of this Chapter.  
b.
In the event that the seating capacity of the facility permitted by special
permit is increased by 20% or more over any 3 year period, then an 
application for an amendment to the special permit must be submitted 
and processed in accordance with this section and § 51-15. The 
location of a residential dwelling unit, health care facility, school, 
public library or religious institution within a 2 mile radius of the 
facility or an increase in the residential density, subsequent to the 
original permit application, shall not preclude such amendment but may
be considered when evaluating whether specific or general site 
standards will be met and whether any additional conditions to the 
special permit are necessary. Failure to secure such amendment will be 
deemed a violation of this Chapter.    
(2)
General permits. In the event that the seating capacity of the facility permitted 
by general permit is increased by 20% or more over any 3 year period, then 
an application for an amendment to the permit must be submitted and processed 
in accordance with this section and § 51-15. The location of a residential 
  
dwelling unit, health care facility, school, public library or religious institution 
within a 2 mile radius of the facility or an increase in the residential density, 
subsequent to the original permit application, shall not preclude such 
amendment but may be considered when evaluating whether specific or general 
site standards will be met and whether any conditions to the permit are
necessary. Any general permit that has been amended to impose conditions shall
thereafter be considered a special permit. Failure to secure such amendment will
be deemed a violation of this Chapter.
