Proposed Changes to the Zoning Code

Changes are proposed to the Zoning Code to modify Chapter 1133.01, Definitions and Chapter 1165, C-3 General Business District.  It is proposed to add boats and recreational vehicles to the definition for "Motor vehicle or trailer sales area" and to create a new definition for "Storage shed or barn or play structure sales or display lots."  In addition, under Chapter 1165 it is proposed to make "motor vehicle, boat, recreation vehicle or trailer sales lots" and "storage shed or barn or play structure sales or display lots" a conditional use.
