SECTION 14- NON-CONFORMING USES
14.01 GENERAL CONCEPT
14.03 NON-CONFORMING PARCELS OF LAND WITH STRUCTURES- In any zone where there may have been structures built on parcels of land not in conformance with these regulations, it is in the best interest of this Code to attempt to mitigate the irregularities. For this purpose the Commission may accept recommendations from the Planning Director for a rearrangement of the parcel which will eliminate as many non-conforming features as circumstances permit. No new structures shall be authorized by the parcel rearrangement unless the new lots are in conformance with the current Code. The Commission shall recognize that there may be circumstances for which there is no mitigating arrangement possible.
14.04 USES UNDER SPECIAL EXCEPTION PROVISIONS NOT NON-CONFORMING USES- Any use which is permitted as a special exception in a zone under the terms of this Code shall not be deemed a non-conforming use in such a district, but shall without further action be considered a conforming use.
14.05 CHANGE TO A CONFORMING USE- Any structure, or structure and land in combination, in or on which a non-conforming use is superseded by a permitted use, shall thereafter conform to the regulations for the zone, and the non-conforming use may not thereafter be resumed.
14.06 ADDITIONS, EXPANSION, MOVING- No additional structure or enlargement or increase of land area or relocation in whole or in part of any non-conforming use shall be permitted.
14.07 REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE-
On any non-conforming structure or portion of a structure containing a non-conforming use,
work may be done for ordinary repairs. If a non-conforming structure or portion of a
structure containing a non-conforming use becomes physically unsafe or unlawful due to
lack of repairs and maintenance, and is declared by any duly authorized official to be
unsafe or unlawful by reason of physical condition, it shall not thereafter be restored,
repaired, or rebuilt except in conformity with the regulations of the zone in which it is
