17.46.010 Purpose and application.

The C-S zone is intended to provide for services, limited retail, and other business service uses that may be less appropriate in the city’s other commercial zones, as well as accommodating certain storage, transportation, wholesaling and light manufacturing uses. The C-S zone implements and is consistent with the services and manufacturing 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.
