The principal objective of this chapter is to provide regulations for the continuation, maintenance, repair, restoration, moving and discontinuance of nonconforming buildings and uses and to bring about eventual conformity with a comprehensive plan for the community by the gradual elimination of all nonconforming buildings and uses. The specific means to accomplish this, although permitting maintenance of existing nonconforming buildings, are as follows:
(a) To permit the continuance but control of nonconformity so as to minimize any adverse effect on the adjoining properties and development;
(b) To regulate nonconforming building maintenance, repair and extension;
(c) To require the permanent discontinuance of nonconforming buildings, land and uses if the same are not operated for certain periods; and
(d) To bring about eventual conformity in accordance with the objectives of the Comprehensive Plan of the City.
