(a)   In determining the buffering requirements that apply between a mixed use and another adjacent use, the Planning Commission or the permit-issuing authority shall proceed as if the principal uses that comprise the mixed use were not mixed and the most stringent of the requirements shall be applied.
   (b)   When two or more principal uses are combined to create a mixed use, buffering shall not be required between the component principal uses unless they are clearly separated physically and buffering is determined to be necessary to satisfy the standard set forth in this Section. Installation and maintenance requirements set forth in the Urban Forest Management Plan shall still apply accordingly.  (Ord. 2014-09.  Passed 2-19-14.)
