Editor’s note:
   Any retail use in excess of 60,000 square feet shall be required to follow the supplemental regulations contained in § 153.075.
   The term SIC shall refer to the Standard Industrial Classification system as set forth in the SIC Manual published by the United States of America, Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget; and unless a use is defined in this chapter, the SIC Manual shall be used to define, clarify or more specifically identify the uses and groups of uses listed under the GMC District. Provided, however, while the SIC Manual uses the term “establishments primarily engaged in” in defining types of manufacturing operations, this chapter shall be construed to mean that if the activity is conducted at all and is listed conditional then the entire use shall be deemed a “conditional use” as opposed to a “permitted use.”
