I need some examples of zoning regulations where only a specific use is allowable. One of our commission members is proposing to create a regulation where a zoning change application can be approved for a single specific use within those (all listed uses) that are allowable in the proposed zoning classification.
Not sure it is even legal to do this. Seems like an administrative nightmare too.

If there are a few specific uses that you want to regulate you can specify that those are only allowed by conditional use in that district and then restrict them on an individual basis that way. Otherwise, I agree with Mike Gurnee.

Unless your state has strange enabling statutes it is unlawful. It is also a bad idea, BUT when you find yourself having this conversation it could be a sign that your zoning ordinance needs work.
