Zoning industrial

LI – Limited Industrial

The LI limited industrial district is intended to accommodate service type commercial and light industrial uses with relatively limited external effects in a high-quality environment. These use types generally have lower traffic volumes than other commercial and industrial uses. The LI district provides for conditional approval of other uses with moderate but controllable effects. The LI district, combined with performance standards, is appropriately located in both suburban and central city industrial areas, particularly those near to residential and commercial districts.

GI – General Industrial

The GI General Industrial District is intended to accommodate a variety of commercial and industrial uses with moderate external effects. The GI district provides for conditional approval of uses with more significant effects that can be controlled through specific requirements. The GI district, combined with performance standards, is appropriately located in both suburban and central city industrial areas. GI districts should be insulated from residential and lower intensity use districts.

HI – Heavy Industrial

The HI heavy industrial district is intended to accommodate industrial uses with major external effects. These uses characteristically have operating characteristics and environmental effects that make them incompatible with surrounding uses. The HI district is most appropriately located in areas that are separated from residential and consumer-oriented commercial districts. When this is not possible in previously developed areas, the HI district is combined with performance standards and buffering requirements to minimize the effects of permitted uses. In addition, the uses that create the greatest conflicts with existing residential areas are controlled through special permit procedures.
