(C) A nonconforming use shall not be expanded, nor shall a nonconforming use be enlarged by additions to the structure in which the nonconforming use is located (either attached or detached) except pursuant to § 153.279(B) of this chapter.

If the use is destroyed (i.e., received damage to an extent of more than 60% of its replacement cost at the time of destruction), it may only be allowed to re-establish in accordance with a permit issued by the Board of Adjustment as set forth in § 153.279 of this chapter.
