18.08.010 Establishment of uses.

The use of a property is defined by the activity for which the building or lot is intended, designed, arranged, occupied, or maintained. The use is considered permanently established when that use will or has been in continuous operation for a period exceeding 60 days. A use which will operate for less than 60 days is considered a temporary use, and subject to the requirements of Chapter 18.32 NMC. All applicable requirements of this code, or other applicable state or federal requirements, shall govern a use located in the city of Newcastle. (Ord. 2017-564 § 13; Ord. 97-145 Exh. A; Ord. 45 § 1, 1994; Ord. 18 § 1, 1994).

18.08.020 Interpretation of land use tables.

A. The land use tables in this chapter determine whether a specific use is allowed in a zone district. The zone district is located on the vertical column and the specific use is located on the horizontal row of these tables.

B. If 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 specified in NMC Title 19, Administrative Procedures, and the general requirements of the code.

D. If the letter “C” appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is allowed subject to the conditional use review procedures specified in NMC Title 19, Administrative Procedures, and the general requirements of the code.

E. If the letter “S” appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the regional use is permitted subject to the special use permit review procedures specified in NMC Title 19, Administrative Procedures, and the general requirements of the code.

F. 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 indicated in the development condition with the corresponding number immediately following the land use table.

G. If more than one letter-number combination appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is allowed in that zone subject to different sets of limitations or conditions depending on the review process indicated by the letter, the general requirements of the code and the specific conditions indicated in the development condition with the corresponding number immediately following the table.

H. All applicable requirements shall govern a use whether or not they are cross-referenced in a section. (Ord. 2017-564 § 13; Ord. 97-153 §§ 18, 19, 20; Ord. 97-145 Exh. A; Ord. 45 § 1, 1994; Ord. 18 § 1, 1994).
