Title 17C Land Use Standards
Chapter 17C.210 Nonconforming Situations
A nonconforming situation may be a nonconforming residential density, a nonconforming development, or a nonconforming use. A situation may be nonconforming in more than one aspect. For example, a site may contain a nonconforming use and also have some nonconforming development. Nonconforming situations are sometimes created when a new zoning category is applied to a site or when a zoning standards change. As part of the change, existing uses, density, or development might no longer be allowed. The change in zoning standards is not intended to force all nonconforming situations to be immediately brought into conformance. Instead, the intent is to guide future uses and development in a new direction consistent with city policy, and, eventually, bring them into conformance.
