Chapter 2
Permitted Uses by District

2.201 Permitted Uses and Uses Allowed by Special Exception.

In order to avoid intrusion of undesirable uses and to foster all possible benefits for a continued high quality environment, all residential and nonresidential land and structure uses have been classified into permitted uses and uses allowed by special exception permit. Permitted uses include those which require a minimum of limitations; but those uses presenting potential injurious effect upon residential and other property, unless authorized under specific imposed conditions, are controlled through the issuance of special exception permits. Uses requiring a planning commission special exception permit are permitted or prohibited in accordance with the procedure and regulations set forth in Article 6, Chapter 3.

2.202 Prohibited Uses and Uses Not Expressly Permitted.

A.    Prohibited Uses. Uses for enterprises or purposes that are contrary to federal, state, or local laws or ordinances are prohibited.

B.    Uses Not Expressly Permitted in a zoning district are prohibited unless a positive finding is made by the planning commission that both of the following criteria are met:

1.    The use which is not expressly permitted is not listed in any other zoning district.

2.    The use which is not expressly permitted has characteristics sufficiently similar to uses that are permitted principal uses or special exception uses in the zoning district in question.

3.    If both of the above considerations are met, the use may be permitted as a principal or special exception use as determined by the Planning Commission.

2.203 Permitted Uses by District.

A.    Uses Permitted in Each District. Table 2 lists the permitted uses in each district. Refer to Article 7, Chapter 2 on page 7-5 for definitions of all uses listed in the following Table 2.

B.    Development Standards Applicable to Uses. Whenever a specific development standard is included for a particular use in Table 2, any development must comply with the requirements of the referenced section. All development standards are listed in Article 2, Chapter 5.

C.    Footnotes. Refer to the footnotes to the table of permitted uses in Section 2.205. Footnotes applicable to each zoning district or category of zoning distract are listed in parentheses in the heading of Table 2.

D.    Special Purpose Zoning Districts Not Listed in Table 2. Refer to Article 3 for the uses and development standards applicable in the special purpose zoning districts. Special purpose zoning districts are not listed in Table 2, and include the PURD Planned Unit Residential District, R-5 Manufactured Housing District, R-O Recreation-Open Space District, P-1 Parking District, G-O-T Government Office Technology District, C-C Civic Center District, MUD – Mixed Use District, TC Town Center District, and SP Special Purpose District.

2.204 Zoning District Design Standards.

The following Table 2 lists the uses that may be permitted in each zoning district; provided, that the development also meets the design and building standards set forth for each district in Chapters 3 through 6 of this ordinance, along with all other development standards contained in this ordinance. For instance, while multiple family apartment buildings may be permitted in various zoning districts, each zoning district will have different standards for building bulk, location, and design. The customized design standards set forth in each zoning district are tailored to the existing and intended character of each zoning district, and are further intended to prevent contextually inappropriate development from occurring within the City.
