Sections:

18.24.010    Purpose

18.24.020    Purposes of Industrial Zoning Districts

18.24.010 - Purpose

This Chapter lists the land uses that may be allowed within the industrial zoning districts established by § 18.14.020 (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.

(Ord. 930, § 2, passed 06-12-2017)

18.24.020 - Purposes of Industrial Zoning Districts

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

A.    IL (Light Industrial) zoning district. The IL zoning district is applied to areas of the City that are appropriate for a variety of commercial, manufacturing, wholesale and distribution, and industrial uses that do not generate significant customer traffic or high levels of noise, dust, odors, or other potential off-site nuisance characteristics. Allowable manufacturing uses and activities must be entirely within enclosed structures. The maximum floor area ratio (FAR) is 0.40. The IL zoning district implements and is consistent with the IL land use designation of the General Plan.

B.    IH (Heavy Industrial) zoning district. The IH zoning district is applied to areas of the City that are appropriate for a range of heavy industrial including manufacturing, assembly and processing, the storage and distribution of raw materials, aggregate plants, and related industrial uses that are generally compatible with and require locations removed from residential and visitor serving uses. The maximum floor area ratio (FAR) is 0.40. The IH zoning district implements and is consistent with the IH land use designation of the General Plan.

(Ord. 930, § 2, passed 06-12-2017)

18.24.030 - Industrial District Land Uses and Permit Requirements

A.    General permit requirements. Table 2-10 identifies the uses of land allowed by this Development Code in each industrial zoning district, and the planning permit required to establish each use, in compliance with § 18.20.030 (Allowable Land Uses and Planning Permit Requirements).

B.    Requirements for certain specific land uses. Where the last column in Table 2-10 (Specific Use Regulations”) includes a section number, the referenced section may affect whether the use requires a Zoning Clearance, Minor Use Permit, or Use Permit, and/or may establish other requirements and standards applicable to the use.

18.24.040 - Industrial District Subdivision Standards

A.    Each subdivision shall comply with the minimum parcel size requirements shown in Table 2-11 for the applicable zoning district.

B.    The minimum parcel size requirements for a specific subdivision are determined by the review authority as part of subdivision approval. The review authority may require 1 or more parcels within a specific subdivision to be larger than the minimums required by this table based on potential environmental impacts, the physical characteristics of the site or surrounding parcels, and/or other factors.

C.    An industrial condominium may be subdivided with smaller parcels for ownership purposes, with the minimum lot area determined through subdivision review; provided, that the overall development site complies with the minimum parcel size.
