APPENDIX C - ZONING REGULATIONS\ARTICLE 15 INDUSTRIAL DISTRICTS (I-1 and I-2)

SECTION 15-1           INTENT

15-101.  It is the intent of the industrial districts to provide for areas of light and heavy industrial uses and for other compatible uses.  Light Industrial (I-1) uses generate few effects felt off-site, such as smoke, noise or odor.  Heavy Industrial (I-2) uses tend to be basic or primary industries which do often produce vibration, smoke, noise, odor, glare, dust and other effects that travel off-site.  See also sections 4-14:15.

SECTION 15-2           PERMITTED AND CONDITIONAL USES

15-201.    In the industrial zoning districts the uses listed in Table 15-1 within the designated zoning districts are permitted uses or conditional uses as designated.  Conditional uses require the issuance of a Conditional Use Permit in accordance with the provisions of Article 26.  No building, land or premises shall be used and no building or structure shall be hereafter erected or altered unless otherwise provided for in these regulations, except as listed in Table 15-1.
