17.40.010 Purpose and application.

The C-R zone is intended to provide for a wide range of retail sales, business, personal and professional services, as well as recreation, entertainment, transient lodging and some residential uses. The land uses allowed in this zone will generally serve the entire community and the region, as well as tourists and travelers. The C-R zone implements and is consistent with the general retail land use category of the general plan, and is intended to be applied primarily to areas with more public exposure on arterial streets than those reserved for manufacturing.
