17.38.010 Purpose and application.

The C-N zone is intended to provide retail sales and personal services primarily for the convenience of surrounding residential areas, in small-scale, pedestrian-oriented developments. Individual, small-scale retail establishments should provide several types of merchandise (as in the example of a neighborhood market providing groceries, household items, magazines, etc.), as opposed to a business offering a wide selection of a single type of merchandise (for example, shoes, books, etc.). The C-N zone implements and is consistent with the neighborhood commercial land use category of the general plan. (Ord. 1438 § 1 (part), 2003: Ord. 941 § 1 (part), 1982: prior code § 9203.8(A))
