14.40.010 Table of Permissible Uses.

Table 14.40-I, the Table of Permissible Uses, sets forth the permissible uses for the various zoning districts in the City, subject to other applicable provisions in this title. It should be read in close conjunction with the definitions of terms set forth in Section 14.08.010 and the other interpretative provisions set forth in this chapter. Permissible uses for the subarea zoning districts are not included in this table, but are included in Section 14.38.020. (Ord. 876, Sec. 18, 2012; Ord. 811, Sec. 31, 2010; Ord. 676, Sec. 23, 2003; Ord. 468, 1995)

14.40.020 Use of the Designations P, A, C in Table of Permissible Uses.

(a)    The Table of Permissible Uses (Table 14.40-I) sets forth which uses are permitted in which zones. The letter “P” means the use is permitted or allowed in the indicated zone district subject to all code requirements of this title. The letter “A” means the use requires an administrative conditional use permit, and the letter “C” means the use requires a conditional use permit. No letter means that use is not permitted in the indicated zone district.

(b)    When used in connection with residential uses (use classification 1.000), the designation “PAC” means that such developments of less than five dwelling units are a permitted use when code requirements are met, developments of five or more but less than 13 dwelling units need an administrative conditional use permit, and developments of 13 or more dwelling units require a conditional use permit.

(c)    When used in connection with nonresidential uses, the designation “PA” means that such developments are permitted if the lot to be developed is less than one acre in size and require an administrative conditional use permit if the lot is one acre or larger in area; and the designation “PC” means that such developments are permitted if the lot to be developed is less than one acre in size and require a conditional use permit if the lot is one acre or larger in area.

(d)    Use of the designation PAC for combination uses is explained in Section 14.40.080. (Ord. 903, Sec. 29, 2013; Ord. 811, Sec. 32, 2010; Ord. 798, Sec. 3, 2009; Ord. 676, Sec. 24, 2003; Ord. 590, 1998; Ord. 468, 1995)

14.40.030 Jurisdiction over Uses Otherwise Permissible.

Whenever this title provides that a use in a nonresidential zone or a nonconforming use in a residential zone is permissible, an administrative conditional use permit shall nevertheless be required if the Planning Director finds that the proposed use would have an extraordinary impact on neighboring properties or the general public. In making this determination, the Planning Director shall consider, among other factors, whether the use is proposed for an undeveloped or previously developed lot, whether the proposed use constitutes a change from one principal use classification to another, whether the use is proposed for a site that poses peculiar traffic or other hazards or difficulties, and whether the proposed use is substantially unique or is likely to have impacts that differ substantially from those presented by other uses that are permissible in the zoning district in question. (Ord. 811, Sec. 33, 2010; Ord. 676, Sec. 25, 2003; Ord. 468, 1995)

14.40.040 Permissible and Prohibited Uses.

(a)    The presumption established by this title is that all legitimate uses of land are addressed within the Table of Permissible Uses, and are either allowed or not allowed thereby. But because the list of permissible uses set forth at the end of this chapter cannot be all inclusive, those uses that are listed shall be interpreted liberally to include other uses that have similar impacts to the listed uses.

(b)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing provisions, the following uses are specifically prohibited in all districts:

(1)    Any use that involves the manufacture, handling, sale, distribution, or storage of any highly combustible or explosive materials in violation of the City’s fire prevention code.

(2)    Stockyards, slaughterhouses, rendering plants.

(3)    Use of a travel trailer, motor home, or other recreational vehicle as a permanent residence except those permitted in a manufactured/mobile home park as per Section 14.44.070. Recreational vehicles may be used as a temporary guest residence for up to two weeks without a permit, or up to three months within any one consecutive year upon approval by the Planning Director. Situations that do not comply with this subsection on the effective date of the ordinance codified in this title are required to conform within one year.

(4)    Use of a motor vehicle parked on a lot as a structure in which, out of which, or from which any goods are sold or stored, any services are performed, or other business is conducted. This prohibition does not apply to temporary public services, such as bookmobiles, blood donation centers, public service information, etc., or temporary food vendors allowed pursuant to Sections 14.44.400 and 14.44.410 (situations that do not comply with this subsection on the effective date of the ordinance codified in this title are required to conform within 30 days).

(5)    Repealed by Ord. 958.

(6)    Sewage/septic sludge recycling except when approved as an essential public facility pursuant to Section 14.16C.060. (Ord. 991, Sec. 5, 2017; Ord. 958, Sec. 2, 2016; Ord. 903, Sec. 30, 2013; Ord. 894, Sec. 2, 2013; Ord. 811, Sec. 34, 2010; Ord. 676, Sec. 26, 2003; Ord. 468, 1995)

14.40.050 Accessory Uses.

(a)    The Table of Permissible Uses (referenced in Section 14.40.010 and found at the end of this chapter) classifies different principal uses according to their different impacts. Whenever an activity (which may or may not be separately listed as a principal use in this table) is conducted in conjunction with another principal use constitutes only an incidental or insubstantial part of the total activity that takes place on a lot, or is commonly associated with the principal use and integrally related to it, then it may be regarded as accessory to the principal use, and may be carried on underneath the umbrella of the permit issued for the principal use. For example, a swimming pool/tennis court complex is customarily associated with and integrally related to a residential subdivision or multifamily development and would be regarded as accessory to such principal uses, even though such facilities, if developed apart from a residential development, would require an administrative conditional use permit (use classification 6.210).

(b)    For purposes of interpreting subsection (a) of this section:

(1)    A use may be regarded as incidental or insubstantial if it is incidental or insubstantial in and of itself or in relation to the principal use;

(2)    To be “commonly associated” with a principal use it is not necessary for an accessory use to be connected with such principal use more times than not, but only that the association of such accessory use with such principal use takes place with sufficient frequency that there is common acceptance of their relatedness.

(c)    Without limiting the generality of subsections (a) and (b) of this section, the following activities, so long as they satisfy the general criteria set forth above, are specifically regarded as accessory to residential principal uses:

(1)    Home occupations.

(2)    Hobbies or recreational activities of a noncommercial nature.

(3)    The renting out of one or two rooms within a single-family residence (which one or two rooms do not themselves constitute a separate dwelling unit) other than on a daily or weekly basis to not more than two persons who are not part of the family that resides in the single-family dwelling.

(4)    Yard sales or garage sales, so long as such sales are not conducted on the same lot for more than three days (whether consecutive or not) during any 30-day period.

(d)    Without limiting the generality of subsections (a) and (b) of this section, the following activities shall not be regarded as accessory to a residential principal use and are prohibited in residential districts.

(1)    Storage outside of a substantially enclosed structure of more than one motor vehicle that is unlicensed and nonoperational for a period of more than three months.

(2)    Parking outside a substantially enclosed structure or a vehicle accommodation area of more than four motor vehicles between the building setback of the principal building and the street on any lot used for purposes that fall within the following principal use classifications: 1.100, 1.200, or 1.400.

(e)    When a land use permit is applied for, all anticipated accessory uses shall be explicitly disclosed, and made part of the findings. Subsequent accessory uses not disclosed shall be subject to the permit modification requirements of Section 14.16A.235 prior to commencing. (Ord. 811, Sec. 35, 2010; Ord. 676, Sec. 27, 2003; Ord. 468, 1995)

14.40.060 Permissible Uses Not Requiring Permits.

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this title, no land use approval, administrative conditional use, or conditional use permit is necessary for the following uses:

(1)    Streets.

(2)    Electric power, telephone, telegraph, cable television, gas, water, and sewer lines, wires or pipes, together with supporting poles or structures, located within a public right-of-way.

(3)    Neighborhood utility facilities located within a public right-of-way with the permission of the owner (State or town) of the right-of-way. (Ord. 811, Sec. 36, 2010)

14.40.070 Change in Use.

A change of use of property shall be reviewed pursuant to Section 14.16C.030. (Ord. 811, Sec. 37, 2010; Ord. 468, 1995)

14.40.080 Combination Uses.

(a)    When a combination use comprises two or more principal uses that require different types of permits (permitted use, administrative conditional use, or conditional use), then the permit authorizing the combination use shall be:

(1)    A conditional use permit if any of the principal uses combined requires a conditional use permit.

(2)    An administrative conditional use permit if any of the principal uses combined requires an administrative conditional use permit but none requires a conditional use permit.

(3)    A permitted use requiring Planning Director approval in all other cases. This is indicated in the Table of Permissible Uses by the designation PAC in a column.

(b)    When a combination use consists of a single-family detached residential subdivision and two-family or multifamily uses, the total density permissible on the entire tract shall be determined by having the developer indicate on the plans the portion of the total lot that will be developed for each purpose and calculating the density for each portion as if it were a separate lot.

(c)    When a combination use consists of a single-family detached and two-family or multifamily uses, then the total density permissible on the entire tract shall be determined by dividing the area of the tract by the minimum square footage per dwelling unit specified in Section 14.48.020. (Ord. 811, Sec. 38, 2010; Ord. 676, Sec. 28, 2003; Ord. 468, 1995)

14.40.090 More Specific Use Controls.

Whenever a development could fall within more than one use classification in the Table of Permissible Uses (referenced in Section 14.40.010 and found at the end of this chapter), the classification that most closely and most specifically describes the development controls. For example, a small doctor’s office or clinic clearly falls within the 3.110 classification (office and service operations conducted entirely indoors and designed to attract customers or clients to the premises). However, classification 3.130, “office or clinics of physicians or dentists with not more than 10,000 square feet of gross floor area,” more specifically covers this use and therefore is controlling. (Ord. 1020, Sec. 3, 2018; Ord. 468, 1995)
