GENERAL PROVISIONS

In order to carry out the purposes and provisions of this Resolution, the uses of buildings or other structures and the open uses of zoning lots, or portions thereof, have been classified and combined into Use Groups. A brief statement is inserted at the start of each Use Group to describe and clarify the basic characteristics of that Use Group.

Use Groups 4B, 4C, 5, 6A, 6B, 7, 8, 9B, 9C, 10B, 10C, 11, 12A, 12C, 12D, 12E, 13, 14, 16, 17 or 18, including each use listed separately therein, and certain uses listed in Use Groups 3A, 4A, 6C, 9A, 10A or 12B are permitted in Manufacturing Districts as indicated in Sections 42-11 to 42-15, inclusive, except that any such use which is also an adult establishment shall, in addition, be subject to the provisions of Section 42-01 (Special Provisions for Adult Establishments).

Uses listed in Use Groups 11A, 16, 17 or 18 must also comply with the applicable performance standards set forth in Sections 42-21 to 42-28, inclusive. In case of any conflict between the Use Group and the performance standards, the latter shall control.

Uses listed in Use Group 18 are permitted in M1 or M2 Districts (as well as M3 Districts) if such uses comply with all of the applicable performance standards for such districts.

Whenever a use is specifically listed in a Use Group and also could be construed to be incorporated within a more inclusive use listing, either in the same or another Use Group, the more specific listing shall control.

The uses listed in the various Use Groups set forth in Sections 42-11 to 42-15, inclusive, are also listed in alphabetical order in APPENDIX A (Index of Uses) of this Resolution, for the convenience of those using the Resolution. Whenever there is any difference in the meaning or implication between the text of these Use Groups and the text of APPENDIX A, the text of these Use Groups shall prevail.
