Use Table and Use Standards are Ready to Review!
The project team is wrapping up Module 1, which includes what uses are permitted in each zoning district and the specific standards that apply to individual uses. The proposed code has incorporated a use table to make finding what uses are permitted in what district easier. There are separate tables for the residential and agricultural zoning districts and the non-residential zoning districts, which are followed by the use-specific standards in those districts.
If you have any questions or feedback for the city, please e-mail Erin Lynn, Planning Manager at the City of Fairfield.
