Table of Contents
When used in connection with a particular use in the Table of Permissible Uses, the letter "P" means that the use is permissible in the indicated zone with a zoning permit. The letters "PC" mean a use is permitted in the indicated zone, subject to the conditions outlined in Article XIII. The letters "SE" mean a special exception permit must be obtained from the Board of Appeals and that there are additional regulations applicable in Article XIII. A blank means the use is not permitted in the zone.
A. 
The list of permissible uses set forth in the Table of Permissible Uses are all inclusive; those uses that are listed shall be interpreted by the Zoning Officer to include other uses that have similar impacts to the listed uses.
B. 
The Table of Permissible Uses shall not be interpreted to allow a use in one zone when the use in question is more closely related to another specified use that is permissible in other zones.
C. 
Uses such as incinerators, private prisons, private landfills and rubblefills, toxic and hazardous waste disposal facilities, private sludge storage facilities and other uses that have similar impacts that are not listed in the Table of Permissible Uses are not allowed. Although currently prohibited by Maryland law, in the event that the Maryland General Assembly legalizes the use of slot machines or other similar gaming devices at any future time, it is the specific and declared intent of the County Commissioners, that the use of slot machines or other similar gaming devices shall not be a permitted use anywhere within the jurisdictional boundaries of Charles County, Maryland.
[Amended 5-5-1997 by Ord. No. 97-44]
D. 
Whenever a proposed use could fall within more than one use classification in the Table of Permissible Uses, the Zoning Officer shall interpret the proposed use to be included in that classification which most closely and most specifically describes the proposed use.
Figure IV-1, the Table of Permissible Uses, is included as an attachment to this chapter.
