Types of Uses and Limit on the Number of Uses per Lot or Parcel
Each base zoning district regulates land uses as either a principal use or an accessory use.
Only one principal use is allowed per lot or parcel, except in the A-35 zoning district and in commercial and industrial zoning districts where more than one principal use may be established subject to the requirements and limitations of this Code, or where special use approval or variance of use approval has authorized additional uses.
An accessory use requires that a principal use is established on the same lot or parcel as the accessory use before the accessory use is established and that the principal use continue on the lot or parcel so long as the accessory use continues, unless otherwise provided by this Code. Multiple accessory uses may be allowed on a lot or parcel subject to the requirements and limitations of this Code.
The land use allowed is subject to any applicable Special Use provisions and applicable General Development Standards (Chapter 6), use and Dimensional Standards/Setbacks (Chapter 5) and other applicable provisions. This may include site plan or site development plan approval, if a building or other development permit is required.
The Principal Use Table 5-1 and Accessory Use Table 5-2 identifies uses which may be located on a lot or parcel within each base zoning district. Base Zoning Districts are shown on the horizontal axis with the Use Types shown on the vertical axis with the applicable Use Category being shown at the intersection. There are three use categories and are shown as: “A” – allowed use; “S” – special use; “T” – temporary use. If the use category is “blank” then the use type is not allowed for the zoning district.
