   1.   Purpose.  The purpose of this district is to provide space for industries that create a substantial nuisance but which do not create noxious nuisances and which are not a hazard to surrounding areas.  They normally require heavy trucking in connection with their operations.  Such industries should be located adjacent to freeways and highways.  Areas set aside for their use should offer a wide selection of sites including some with access to rail transportation.  An important consideration is the protection of surrounding residential, commercial, and light industrial uses from possible objectionable influences created by this type of industry.
