Section 17C.130.030 Characteristics of Industrial Zones

  1. Light Industrial (LI).
    The light industrial zoning category is located in areas designated light industrial on the land use plan map of the comprehensive plan. The light industrial (LI) zone is intended to provide a wide range of employment opportunities without potential conflicts from interspersed residential uses. A full range of industrial, commercial and office use is allowed. Commercial uses are limited in size to ensure that they do not dominate the character of the industrial area or adversely affect the intended industrial use of the area. Consistent with the comprehensive plan, residential development is allowed in close proximity to the Spokane River where residents can take advantage of the river amenity. The development standards in this title are the minimum necessary to assure safe, efficient and environmentally sound development, which will have minimum adverse impacts.
     
  2. Heavy Industrial (HI).
    The heavy industrial zoning category is located in areas designated heavy industrial on the land use plan map of the comprehensive plan. The heavy industrial (HI) zone is intended primarily for high impact industrial uses while allowing office and limited commercial uses which are harmonious with industrial uses. Commercial uses are limited in size to ensure that they do not dominate the character of the industrial area or adversely affect the intended industrial use of the area. Residential development is allowed in close proximity to the Spokane River where residents can take advantage of the river amenity. The development standards are the minimum necessary to assure safe, functional, efficient and environmentally sound development.
     
  3. Planned Industrial (PI).
    The planned industrial zoning category may be located in areas designated light industrial or heavy industrial on the land use plan map of the comprehensive plan. The planned industrial (PI) zone is intended to encourage the use of industrial land for employment and employment supporting uses. Nonindustrial uses are limited unless they are a part of a binding site plan or planned unit development.
