Tigard Notice of Adopted Amendment (2010-10-06)
MetadataShow full item record
The Use Classification (Chapter 18.130) Development Code Amendment is an amendment package designed to improve code administration by clarifying and simplifying the land use categories that are a major base component of the Tigard Development Code. Existing use categories are being expanded and clarified through the addition of four general categories (Characteristics, Accessory Uses, Examples, and Exceptions) that will replace the existing single paragraph describing each use. In addition, the amendment will introduce accessory uses into the chapter and how they are to be administered through the code. The purpose of the amendments is not to expand or restrict existing uses allowed within the Tigard Zoning Code. Rather, the amendment seeks to improve the existing code by making it consistent, clear, and as simple as possible.
