18.30.015 Temporary uses.

A. Purpose. The purpose of this section is to make allowances for certain types of temporary uses. Temporary uses are uses that do not require permanent construction and which are approved with a specified time limit.

B. Temporary Uses in All Zones. The Director may authorize temporary uses which do not involve the construction of a permanent structure as a Process 1 decision. Under no circumstance shall such a temporary use be authorized for period exceeding 60 days. The Director must find that the proposed use is not in conflict with the goals and policies of the comprehensive plan and that no material detriment to surrounding properties will occur. In considering such proposals, the Director may:

1. Require modifications to the site plan, signage, lighting, limitations on hours of operation, or other measures to mitigate adverse impacts of the proposal;

2. Require that the proposed use have on-site staff whenever in operation;

3. Require the applicant post a bond or other financial guarantee for the removal of materials and restoration of the site; and

4. Modify certain development standards for the site if they will not serve a substantial purpose during the life of the temporary use.

C. Temporary Residential Structures.

1. The Director may authorize the installation of a manufactured home for use during the construction of a single-family residence, subject to the following:

a. The temporary dwelling shall be on the same parcel as the house under construction;

b. The permit shall be valid for the life of the Construction Permit, not to exceed one year;

c. The applicant shall post a bond or other financial guarantee sufficient to cover the removal of the unit;

d. The application shall be subject to the procedures for Process 1 decisions.

2. The Director may authorize manufactured homes as accessory to residential uses for the care of an elderly or disabled relative subject to the following:

a. The initial approval shall be for no more than one year;

b. The applicant shall post a bond or other financial guarantee sufficient to cover the removal of the unit;

c. The specific unit to be installed must be generally consistent with architecture and design of the surrounding residential structures;

d. Renewal may be sought on a year-by-year basis provided the previous criteria are satisfied and the unit is maintained and operated in a clean and safe manner; and

e. The initial application and any renewal shall be subject to the procedures for Process 1 decisions.

D. Temporary Nonresidential Structures and Uses.

1. The Director may authorize office and retail uses to occur in temporary structures during the period of construction of a permanent facility to house such activity subject to the following:

a. The approval of such activity shall be only during the life of the Building Permit and shall not exceed one year unless renewed;

b. The applicant shall post a bond or other financial guarantee sufficient to cover the removal of the unit;

c. Renewal may be sought on a year-by-year basis not to exceed the life of the Construction Permit;

d. The temporary structure shall comply with all applicable utility and construction standards; and

e. The initial application and any renewal shall be subject to the procedures for Process 1 decisions.

2. The Director may authorize the installation of small temporary structures for the use as contractor’s offices, construction engineer’s offices, real estate offices and other similar activities subject to the approval of the Building Official and City Engineer. If necessary, the Director may require that a bond be posted for the removal and may limit the duration of the approval to a reasonable period (e.g., length of construction, completion of real estate sales).

3. The Director may authorize the use of temporary storage associated with an active, permitted, municipal construction project and other similar activities. In the event the use becomes inactive for 60 days, the permit shall expire. (Ord. O-12-492 § 1; Ord. O-03-235 § 1; Ord. O-99-109 § 1).

18.30.020 Interpretation of land use tables.

A. The land use tables in this chapter determine whether a specific use is allowed in a zoning district. The zoning district is located on the vertical column and the specific use is located on the horizontal row of these tables. The administrative requirements of Chapter 18.100 MVMC apply to all applications.

B. If no land use is identified or no symbol appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is not allowed in that district, except for certain temporary uses.

C. If the letter “P” appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is allowed in that district subject to the review procedures and general requirements of the code. Design review or compliance with the Community Design Guidelines and requirements may be required pursuant to Chapter 18.70 MVMC. The process types and process steps tables of MVMC 18.100.040(A) and (B) apply.

D. If the letter “C” appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is permitted subject to the conditional use permit review procedures and the general requirements of the code. The process types and process steps tables of MVMC 18.100.040(A) and (B) apply.

E. If the letter “A” appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is allowed in that district as an accessory to the primary use.

F. If the letter “M” appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is allowed subject to the master planned community development review procedures and requirements of the code contained in Chapter 18.120 MVMC.

G. If a number appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use may be allowed subject to the appropriate review process indicated above, the general requirements of the code and the specific conditions set forth in the corresponding number or section immediately following the permitted use table.

H. All applicable requirements shall govern a use whether or not they are cross-referenced in a section. (Ord. O-12-504 § 2; Ord. O-11-438 § 1; Ord. O-03-235 § 1; Ord. O-99-109 § 1).
