This Chapter lists the land uses that may be allowed within the commercial, industrial, and public facility zoning districts established by Section 9.12.020 (Zoning Map and Zoning Districts), determines the type of planning permit/approval required for each use, and provides basic standards for site layout and building size.

9.26.020 Purposes of Commercial, Industrial, and Public Facility Zoning Districts

The purposes of the individual commercial zoning districts and the manner in which they are applied are as follows.

A.    CC (Commercial - Central) district. The CC zoning district is applied to areas surrounding the Plaza, and is intended to accommodate retail, professional office, civic, hotel, theater, residential, and similar and compatible uses. The CC zoning district is consistent with and implements the Commercial Central land use classification of the General Plan.

B.    CG (Commercial - General) district. The CG zoning district is applied to areas appropriate for a range of retail and service land uses that primarily serve local residents and businesses, including shops, personal and business services, and restaurants. Residential uses may also be accommodated as part of mixed use projects. The CG zoning district is consistent with the Commercial - General land use classification of the General Plan.

C.    CM (Commercial - Mixed Use Center) district. The CM zoning district is applied to areas identified by General Plan policy LU-1d as the existing neighborhood centers of Westwood, Bayside, Sunny Brae, and Greenview, where additional retail, personal and business services, and other neighborhood-oriented commercial services are encouraged, and where substantial additions to the existing centers shall include residential units on upper floors or in separate buildings. The CM zoning district is consistent with and implements the Commercial - Mixed Use Center land use classification of the General Plan, and policy LU-1d.

D.    CV (Commercial - Visitor Serving) district. The CV zoning district is applied to areas adjacent to highway interchanges that are appropriate for uses that primarily serve the traveling public, including lodging, restaurants, auto sales centers, service stations, convenience stores, and similar and compatible uses. The CV zoning district is consistent with the Commercial - Visitor Serving land use classification of the General Plan.

E.    IL (Industrial - Limited) district. The IL zoning district is applied to areas appropriate for light and moderate impact manufacturing, and limited commercial uses. Residential uses may also be allowed where they are compatible with the nature of the production process, or the related sales of products made on the premises. The IL zoning district is consistent with the Industrial - Limited land use classification of the General Plan.

F.    IG (Industrial - General) district. The IG zoning district is applied to areas appropriate for light, moderate impact, and high impact manufacturing, and limited commercial uses. The IG zoning district is consistent with the Industrial - General land use classification of the General Plan.

G.    PF (Public Facility) district. The PF zoning district is applied to sites that are used or intended for use as various types of public facilities, and certain uses that may be privately owned, but are institutional in character. The PF zoning district is consistent with the Public Facility land use classification of the General Plan.

9.26.030 Commercial, Industrial, and Public Facility District Allowable Land Uses Revised 7/17

Table 2-10 identifies the uses of land allowed by this Land Use Code in the commercial, industrial, and public facility zoning districts, and the planning permit required to establish each use, in compliance with Section 9.20.030 (Allowable Land Uses and Permit Requirements).

Note: Where the last column in the table ("Specific Use Regulations") includes a section number, the regulations in the referenced section apply to the use. Provisions in other sections of this Land Use Code may also apply.
