4.23        General Industrial District

A.            Purpose

The GI District provides for a wide range of industrial and manufacturing uses, some of which may have significant external effects.  These uses may have operating characteristics that create conflicts with lower-intensity surrounding land uses.  The district provides the reservation of land for these activities and includes buffering requirements in Section 9.8 to reduce incompatibility.

Note 1:  Front yard setbacks may be reduced within Planned Developments, with specific setbacks established as part of the Planned Development district regulators.  On streets designated as arterials by the County Comprehensive Plan and with a right –of-way less than 100 feet, the Zoning Coordinator may require a greater setback from the arterial to accommodate future roadway widening.  The maximum setback is established by the following formula:

Arterial street setback = 25 + (50 – ½ current ROW width)

Note 2:  A side yard setback of 30 feet is required when abutting a zone requiring a side yard.

Note 3:  Rear yard setback required only when a residential zoning district abuts the rear lot line.

Note 4:  Construction Batch Plants may be permitted up to a height of 95 feet.
