B. The department shall follow the rules of interpretation listed in this section in determining the classification of a particular use. This preliminary interpretation is advisory in nature and does not constitute an order, requirement, decision, or determination under section 76-2-323 Montana Code Annotated. A written copy of each such interpretation shall be kept on file with the community development department.
