8-2-1: DISTRICTS ESTABLISHED, PURPOSES AND RESTRICTIONS:
The following zoning districts are hereby established. For the interpretation of this title, the zoning districts have been formulated to realize the general purposes as set forth in this title. In addition, the specific purpose of each zoning district shall be as follows:
A AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT: To maximize opportunities for agricultural activities by preserving land for the purposes of cultivating the soil and raising livestock. Minimum lot size of twenty (20) contiguous acres, all of which must be under single ownership to ensure protection of irrigation and surface water drainage systems.
A-R AGRICULTURAL-RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT: To provide for the transition of agricultural land no longer used for extensive agricultural purposes into residential areas, while preserving agricultural uses compatible with residential development. Gross density shall not exceed one single-family dwelling unit per five (5) acres.
R-E RESIDENTIAL-ESTATES DISTRICT: To provide opportunities for very low density residential land use compatible with the topography and public service capacities. Gross density shall not exceed one single-family dwelling unit per two (2) acres.
R RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT: To provide regulations and districts for various residential neighborhoods. Gross density in an R district shall be determined according to the numeral following the R. The numeral designates the maximum number of dwelling units per acre. Multi-family and two-family units/developments are prohibited in R-1, R-2, R-3, R-4 and R-5 zoning districts, unless approved as part of a planned unit development (PUD). Centralized water and sewer facilities are required for all subdivision and lot split applications submitted after the effective date hereof in all districts exceeding one dwelling unit per two (2) acres (R-E). Whenever there is a conflict or difference between the provisions of this section and those of other chapters and/or other titles, the chapter or title with the more restrictive provision shall prevail. When a property is being proposed for rezone to the R zoning district, a development agreement may be utilized in lieu of the PUD and/or conditional use process if approved by the city council, provided the development agreement includes conditions of development that are required during the PUD and conditional use process.
L-O LIMITED OFFICE DISTRICT: To permit the establishment of groupings of professional, research, executive, administrative, accounting, clerical, stenographic, limited commercial and similar uses. Development shall not be traffic intensive and research facilities shall not involve heavy testing operations of any kind. The L-O district is designed to act as a buffer between other more intense nonresidential uses and high density residential uses, and is thus a transitional use.
C-A COMMERCIAL-AIRPORT: To permit the establishment of a commercial airport which is compatible with property uses in other Eagle area districts.
C-1 NEIGHBORHOOD BUSINESS DISTRICT: To permit the establishment of convenience business uses which tend to meet the daily needs of the residents of an immediate neighborhood while establishing development standards that prevent adverse effects on residential uses adjoining a C-1 district. Such districts are typically appropriate for small shopping clusters or integrated shopping centers located within residential neighborhoods.
C-2 GENERAL BUSINESS DISTRICT: To permit the establishment of areas for commercial uses allowed in other commercial zones and commercial uses which are more intensive than those permitted in other commercial zones. Uses that complement rather than compete with the uses allowed within the CBD zoning district shall be encouraged.
C-3 HIGHWAY BUSINESS DISTRICT: To permit the establishment of areas for travel related services such as hotels, motels, service stations, drive-in restaurants, offices, limited warehousing, commercial services and retail sales. This district is specifically designed in clusters to service the motoring public on major streets. Uses that compete with the uses allowed within the CBD zoning district shall be discouraged.
CBD CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT: To accommodate and encourage further expansion and renewal in the historical core business area of the community. A variety of business, public, quasi- public, cultural, residential and other related uses are encouraged. The greatest possible concentration of retail sales and business is to occur in this district. Pedestrian friendly uses and developments are encouraged.
M-1 LIGHT INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT: To encourage the development of manufacturing and wholesale business establishments which shall be free of hazardous or objectionable elements such as noise, odor, dust, smoke, or glare, are operated entirely within enclosed structures and generate little industrial traffic. Research activities are encouraged and limited office and commercial uses may be permitted as ancillary uses. This district is further designed to act as a transitional use between heavy manufacturing uses and other less intense businesses.
BP BUSINESS PARK DISTRICT: To encourage the development of technical park/research and development facilities, offices and office complexes, and limited manufacturing activities including small scale production, distribution and storage of goods. Support activities may also be permitted. All development within this district shall be designed to be within a landscaped setting, and be free of hazardous or objectionable elements such as noise, odor, dust, smoke or glare. Such development shall be operated entirely within enclosed structures, and generate minimal industrial traffic. All development requiring a conditional use permit in the BP zoning district, as shown in section 8-2-3 of this chapter, shall occur under the PUD and/or development agreement process in accordance with chapter 6 or 10 of this title unless the proposed development does not meet the area requirements as set forth in section 8-6-5-1 of this title. In that case a cooperative development, in conjunction with adjacent parcels (to meet the minimum area requirements), shall be encouraged. Otherwise a conditional use permit shall be required unless the proposed use is shown as a permitted use in the BP zoning district within section 8-2-3 of this chapter.
M-2 HEAVY INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT: To encourage the development of major manufacturing, processing, warehousing and major research and testing operations. Limited office and commercial uses may be permitted as ancillary uses. These activities shall include certain uses excluded from the M-1 district for reasons of health, safety or general welfare. All development within this land use shall be free of hazardous or objectionable elements such as noise, odor, dust, smoke, or glare.
M-3 EXTRACTIVE INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT: To provide land for the mining, processing and storage of mineral resources. This district is designed to assure that these resources be properly managed and all land be reclaimed so as not to create a hazard or nuisance which either immediately or in the future adversely affects the health, safety or general welfare of the community.
PS PUBLIC/SEMIPUBLIC: To provide for public/semipublic development such as golf courses, parks, recreation facilities, greenways, schools, and public service facilities such as government offices. (Ord. 566, 5-15-2007)
MU MIXED USE DISTRICT: To provide for a variety and mixture of uses such as limited office, limited commercial, and residential. This district is intended to ensure compatibility of new development with existing and future development. It is also intended to ensure assemblage of properties in a unified plan with coordinated and harmonious development which shall promote outstanding design without unsightly and unsafe strip commercial development. Uses should complement the uses allowed within the CBD zoning district. All development requiring a conditional use permit in the MU zoning district, as shown in section 8-2-3 of this chapter, shall occur under the PUD and/or development agreement process in accordance with chapter 6 or 10 of this title unless the proposed development does not meet the area requirements as set forth in section 8-6-5-1 of this title. In that case a cooperative development, in conjunction with adjacent parcels (to meet the minimum area requirements), shall be encouraged. Otherwise a conditional use permit shall be required unless the proposed use is shown as a permitted use in the MU zoning district within section 8-2-3 of this chapter. Residential densities shall not exceed twenty (20) dwelling units per gross acre. When a property is being proposed for rezone to the MU zoning district, a development agreement may be utilized in lieu of the PUD and/or conditional use process if approved by the city council, provided the development agreement includes conditions of development that are required during the PUD and conditional use process.
