The purpose of the industrial zones is to provide opportunities for enhancement of existing industrial and compatible commercial use and intensities in areas of the city which are suitable for such development. Industrial areas should take advantage of rail and highway access points. Development should be separated or well buffered from nearby residential areas. The location of industrial zones should be dependent on and compatible with the size and scale of the surrounding adjacent uses. The purpose statement for each industrial zoning district is set forth in the following sections:
A. General Industrial Zoning District. The purpose of the general industrial zoning district is to provide an area for more intensive manufacturing and processing operations than those allowed in the other industrial zoning districts.
B. Light Industrial Zoning District. The purpose of the light industrial zoning district is to provide an area for manufacturing, processing, wholesaling, warehousing, distribution, and other similar activities that either do not result in any environmental impacts or produce minimal environmental impacts that can be easily mitigated.
C. Fryelands Commercial Overlay District. The purpose of the Fryelands commercial overlay district is to provide standards for the enhancement of existing commercial uses, as well as for the location of new commercial development along Fryelands Boulevard.
D. Shoreline Industrial Zoning District. The purpose of the shoreline industrial zoning district is to provide an area to allow for gravel mining and the processing of rock. This designation applies only to the property hosting the existing and continuing Cadman gravel operation. (Ord. 005/2019 § 10 (Exh. B))
