Section 17C.130.010 Purpose

The industrial zoning categories implement the industrial goals and policies and land use plan map designations of the comprehensive plan. The zones are for areas of the City designated by the comprehensive plan for industrial uses. The industrial zone classifications reserve areas of the City for industrial uses and a mix of nonindustrial uses that are compatible with industrial uses. These areas are located where necessary supporting infrastructure is available and where there is an adequate supply of land. Limits on the intensity of uses and their impacts on surrounding land uses are accomplished by the development standards specified in this chapter. The development standards are designed to allow a large degree of development flexibility within parameters that support the intent of the specific zone. The standards are intended to provide certainty to property owners, developers and neighbors about the limits of what is allowed in the industrial zones.
