General. Table 72-40.2, Use Table, lists use types by base zoning district and indicates whether they are allowed by right, allowed with a use permit, or prohibited. The Use Table also includes references to any additional requirements or regulations applicable to the specific use type. References to additional requirements or regulations may not be all-inclusive.
Organization of uses. The Use Table and § 72-83, Use classifications, categories, and use types, together, provide a systematic basis for determining whether a particular land use is allowed in a particular zoning district.
Use classifications. The use classifications identify broad general classifications of uses and include residential uses, institutional uses, commercial uses, and industrial uses. Use classifications are further categorized into a series of general use categories and specific use types.
Use categories. The use categories describe the major subgroups of the respective use classifications and are based on common physical characteristics or functions, such as the type and amount of activity, the types of customers or residents, the manner in which goods or services are sold or delivered, and site conditions. For example, the residential use classification is divided into the household living and group living use categories. Use categories are further divided into a series of individual use types.
Use types. The specific use types are included in the respective use category. They identify the specific principal uses that are considered to fall within characteristics identified in the use category. For example, duplex dwellings, live/work dwellings, single-family detached dwellings, and single-family attached dwellings are use types in the household living use category.
Uses allowed by right.
A "P" in a cell of Table 72-40.2, Use Table, indicates that the corresponding use category or use type is permitted in the corresponding base zoning district by right, subject to compliance with any applicable use-specific standards referenced in the final column of the use table and issuance of a zoning permit (if applicable). Uses requiring a zoning permit are subject to all other applicable regulations of this chapter, including those set forth in Article 72-5, Development Standards.
In some instances, uses typically allowed by right may be required to obtain special use permit approval if located within an overlay zoning district. Applicants should be aware of all overlay zoning district requirements applicable to a particular use or lot.
Uses requiring a special use permit. An "S" in a cell of Table 72-40.2, Use Table, indicates that the corresponding use category or use type is allowed in the corresponding base zoning district only upon approval of a special use permit, in accordance with § 72-22.6, Special use permits, and any applicable use-specific standards referenced in the final column of the use table. Uses subject to a special use permit are also subject to all other applicable regulations of this chapter, including those set forth in Article 72-5, Development Standards.
Prohibited uses. A cell which contains neither an "S" nor a "P" indicates that the specified use type is prohibited in the corresponding zoning district.
Use-specific standards. When a particular use type is permitted in a zoning district, there may be additional regulations that are applicable to the use type. The existence of these use-specific standards is noted through a section reference in the last column of the use table titled "Additional Requirements." References refer to provisions found in § 72-41, Principal use standards. These standards apply to the corresponding use regardless of the base zoning district where it is proposed, unless otherwise specified.
Use restricted or prohibited by Overlay Zoning District. Regardless of whether the summary use table identifies a particular use type as permitted by right or allowed by special use permit, the use type may be further restricted or prohibited in accordance with applicable overlay zoning district provisions in Article 72-3, Zoning Districts, or with provisions in this chapter.
