P = permitted uses;

A dash (“-”) indicates prohibited uses.
 
   (B)   Uses not mentioned. A use not specifically mentioned or described by category in the use matrix (Table 153.0202(A) above) is prohibited. Evaluation of these uses shall be as set forth in subsection (D)(1) below.
   (C)   Uses preempted by state statute. Notwithstanding any provision of this section to the contrary, uses that are required to be permitted in any zoning district by state statute may be permitted in accordance with state law whether or not the use is included in the use matrix (Table 153.0202(A) above).
   (D)   Interpretation.
      (1)   Materially similar uses.
         (a)   The Code Enforcement Officer shall determine if a use not mentioned can reasonably be interpreted to fit into a use category where similar uses are described. Interpretations may be ratified by the city upon recommendation by the Planning Commission at a regularly scheduled meeting. It is the intent of this chapter to group similar or compatible land uses into specific zoning districts, either as permitted uses or as uses authorized by a CUP. Uses not listed as a permitted use or CUP are presumed to be prohibited from the applicable zoning district. In the event that a particular use is not listed in the use matrix ( Table 153.0202(A) ), and such use is not listed as a prohibited use and is not otherwise prohibited by law, the Code Enforcement Officer shall determine whether a materially similar use exists in this section.
         (b)   Should the Code Enforcement Officer determine that a materially similar use does exist, the regulations governing that use shall apply to the particular use not listed and the Code Enforcement Officer’s decision shall be recorded in writing. Should the Code Enforcement Officer determine that a materially similar use does not exist, the matter may be referred to the Planning Commission for consideration for amendment to the UDC to establish a specific listing for the use in question. Unless an appeal is timely filed pursuant to §§ 153.0920 through 153.0924 of this chapter, the Code Enforcement Officer’s decision is valid. If, when seeking periodic ratification of interpretations, the Code Enforcement Officer’s interpretation is reversed, then decisions made in reliance on the Code Enforcement Officer’s interpretation are in violation of the UDC.
      (2)   Rules of construction. The Code Enforcement Officer may determine that a use is materially similar if:
         (a)   The use is listed as within the same structure or function classification as the use specifically enumerated in the use matrix ( Table 153.0202(A) above), as determined by the Land-Based Classification Standards (LBCS) of the American Planning Association (APA). The Code Enforcement Officer shall refer to the following documents in making this determination, which documents are incorporated by reference and are maintained on file in the office of the Planning Department:
            1.   LBCS Structure Dimension with Detail Descriptions (9-13-1999);
            2.   LBCS Function Dimension with Detail Descriptions (9-13-1999); and
            3.   LBCS Tables (9-13-1999). The use shall be considered materially similar if it falls within the same LBCS classification.
         (b)   If the use cannot be located within one of the APA’s LBCS classifications pursuant to subsection (D)(2)(a) above, the Code Enforcement Officer shall refer to the 1997 NAICS Manual. The use shall be considered materially similar if it falls within the same industry classification of the 1997 NAICS Manual (Table 153.0202(B) below).
      (3)   In order to assist in interpretation of the use matrix ( Table 153.0202(A) above), the LBCS and North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) numbers follow each use in the use matrix. In interpreting the use matrix, the following rules of construction apply.
         (a)   If a use is listed for a specific classification, while a more general classification within the same industry classification is also listed for another use, the specific classification governs. The specific use is not permitted in all districts where the uses coded to the general classification are permitted simply because they share a similar LBCS or NAICS code number. The numbers increase as the classifications get more specific.
