17.10.040: SCHEDULE OF DISTRICT USE REGULATIONS:
District regulations shall be as set forth in the official schedule of district regulations, in the
performance standards in Chapter 17.18 of this title, and as otherwise provided within this Code.
The official schedule of district regulations is divided into five (5) land use groups: agricultural,
residential, commercial, industrial, and public/semipublic. To determine in which district a
specific use is allowed:
A. Find the use in one of the land use groups;
B. Read across the chart until either “P” or “S” appears in one of the columns; and
C. If “P” appears, the use is an allowed use; if “S” appears, the use is only allowed upon the
issuance of a special use permit and/or a development agreement upon rezone to an MU or BP
zoning designation; if no letter appears the use is prohibited.
The Administrator shall interpret the appropriate district for land uses not specifically mentioned
by determining the district in which similar uses are permitted. If the administrator determines that
a proposed use is not specifically mentioned and is not similar to any specifically mentioned use,
the Administrator shall determine that the use is prohibited. When several combined land uses
exist, or are proposed, the most intensive land use shall be considered as the primary activity.
Provided, however, that if a proposed use of property is not specifically listed in the official
schedule of district regulations, the use shall be prohibited, unless the Administrator determines
that the proposed use is equivalent to a permitted or special use. In making said determination,
the Administrator shall consider the following:
(1) The impacts on public services, and activities associated with the proposed use, are
substantially similar to any of the permitted or special uses listed for the applicable district;
(2) The proposed use shall not involve a higher level of activity or density than any of the
permitted or special uses listed for the applicable district;
(3) The proposed use is consistent with the purpose of the district in which the use is
proposed to be located; and
(4) The proposed us is in substantial conformance with goals and objectives of the
Comprehensive Plan;
(5) Should the use be determined to be equivalent to a use that requires a special use permit,
the application shall be required to follow the procedures set forth for special use permits.
