The following essential use classifications or zones are established and may be known as the zone symbols shown:

A. R-1 single-family residential zone – unattached dwelling uses, including modular/prefabricated homes;

B. RM manufactured housing zone – unattached dwelling uses including double-wide manufactured (mobile) homes and manufactured home parks;

C. R-2 duplex residential zone – attached duplex dwelling uses, excluding manufactured (mobile) housing;

D. R-3 multiple-family residential zone – attached dwelling uses;

F. C-2 general commercial zone;

G. I-1 light industrial zone;

H. I-2 heavy industrial zone;

I. MZ mining zone;

J. AO airport overlay zone;

K. PUD planned unit development overlay zone;

L. OS open space zone;

M. R recreational zone;

N. P public zone. (Ord. C-675 § 61, 2008)

17.05.020 Zones – Shown on map.

The location and boundaries of the zones to which the provisions of this title are applicable are indicated on the “zoning map of the City of Airway Heights,” a copy of which map is available for review at the Planning Department and is also filed in the office of the Clerk-Treasurer. (Ord. C-675 § 62, 2008)

17.05.030 Zones – Matrix.

The zoning matrix provides a quick reference for uses permitted within the zones designated in AHMC 17.05.010, and as provided in the individual zone designations in this title. Each zone designation includes a section describing the purpose and intent to be accomplished by the various zones. It is recognized that all possible uses and variations of uses which might arise cannot reasonably be listed or categorized. Any use not specifically mentioned or about which there is any question shall be administratively classified by comparison with other uses identified in the matrix. If the proposed use resembles identified uses in terms of intensity and character, and is consistent with the purpose of this code and the individual zone classification, it shall be considered as a permitted or nonpermitted use within a general zone designation. If permitted, such uses shall be subject to the development standards for the use it most nearly resembles. If a use does not resemble other identified allowable uses within a matrix, it may be permitted as determined by the hearing body in public hearing as an amendment to this code pursuant to AHMC 17.03.070. A conditional use permit (or CUP) will be allowed by the hearing body, which will impose certain performance standards.
