CHAPTER 155:  UNIFIED DEVELOPMENT CODE
HOW TO USE THIS CODE IF YOU OWN PROPERTY AND WANT TO KNOW WHAT RULES APPLY:
   STEP 1:   Find your zoning district and any overlay districts by looking at the Zoning Map (found in the Planning Department).
   STEP 2:   Go to § 155.200, Districts Established, to review the intent of the district(s) applied to your property. 
   STEP 3:   Go to § 155.202, Permitted Land Uses, for details on uses permitted on your property. Find the row that lists the group of uses or specific use you’ve identified. Match this row to your district (across the top of the table) to determine if the use you want to establish is permitted. To determine if the use you’ve identified is part of group of uses go to § 155.300, Use Interpretation.
   STEP 4:   If your use is permitted, before building the structure or establishing the use, you must get the appropriate permits approved (see §§ 155.700 through 155.721). For details on minimum lot size and required yards see § 155.203. For specific use standards see §§ 155.300 through 155.307. The use may also be subject to the general standards in §§ 155.400 through 155.404 and §§ 155.500 through 155.502.
   STEP 5:   Don’t forget that the overlay districts established in § 155.200(C) may apply to your property.
   These requirements are intended to help you and the Town ensure that your project is legally established and that it matches the development vision that Town of Clayton, as a community, desires. You should also review the Clayton General Design Guidelines for other applicable development information.
IF YOU WANT TO BUILD OR ESTABLISH A PARTICULAR USE:
   Follow Steps 1 through 5 above, to identify your zoning district and the permitted uses. You can find the specific details for the permitted uses in your zoning district in either § 155.300 and § 155.802. You can also find the various development standards that apply to your property in §§ 155.400 through 155.404 and §§ 155.500 through 155.502.
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR ZONING DISTRICT:
   Only the Town Council, may rezone property – following public notice and hearings. See § 155.704, Rezonings, for details on the procedure.
IF YOU WANT TO SUBDIVIDE YOUR PROPERTY:
   Property can only be subdivided in accordance with § 155.706, Subdivision Review.
