18.37.010 Purpose.

The principal purpose of the IND-H (heavy industrial) zoning district is to provide for industrial uses in locations which are suitable and appropriate, taking into consideration the land uses on adjacent or nearby properties, access to major streets, highways, air or other means of transportation, and the availability of public utilities. Principal uses include light manufacturing, distribution of goods; and other uses that will not be detrimental to adjacent commercial or residential properties by reason of, but not limited to, excessive noise, dust, odor, smoke, vibrations, fumes or glare. Commercial uses are also allowed within the IND-H zone, but care should be taken to encourage industrial uses of IND-H zoned sites. Conditionally permitted uses include those that because of the nature of their operation, appearance, traffic generation, or emission may not be compatible with other zoning districts, although the uses may be necessary and desirable in the town of Taylor. [Ord. 2016-02 § 1.]
