17.26.040    Use Table

17.26.010 Allowable Land Uses Generally:

Land use provisions are established in this title by the zoning district applied to a parcel. The uses of land allowed in each zoning district are listed in section 17.26.040, table 17.26-1 of this chapter by zoning district category in this division. (Ord. 473 §3, 2007)

17.26.020 Uses Not Listed:

Land uses that are not listed in the zoning district tables are not allowed, except as otherwise provided for in chapters 17.16, "Permit Requirements", 17.68, "Accessory Uses", and 17.92, "Temporary Uses", of this title. (Ord. 473 §3, 2007)

17.26.030 Similar Uses:

When a use is not specifically listed in this title, it shall be understood that the use may be permitted if the director determines that the use is similar to other uses listed. It is further recognized that every conceivable use cannot be identified in this title and, anticipating that new uses will evolve over time, this section establishes the director’s authority to compare a proposed use and measure it against those uses listed in this title for determining similarity. In determining "similarity" the director shall make all of the following findings:

A.    The characteristics of, and activities associated with, the proposed use are equivalent to one or more of the listed uses, and will not involve a higher level of activity or population density than the uses listed in the district;

B.    The proposed use will be consistent with the purposes of the applicable zoning district; and

C.    The proposed use will be consistent with the general plan and any applicable specific plan. Determinations shall be made in writing and shall contain the facts that support the determination. The department shall maintain all such determinations on record at the public counter for review by the general public. All recorded determinations shall be provided to the planning commission, city council, city manager, city attorney, and city clerk as an information item within thirty (30) days of the director’s determination. The director’s decision may be appealed as provided in section 17.14.060, "Appeals", of this title. (Ord. 473, §3, 2007)
