(A) The purpose of this subchapter is to provide performance standards in the control of commercial and industrial uses in the town. These standards are designed to prevent health and safety hazards, public nuisances, and harmful effects upon the natural environment. They are also designed to permit potential industrial nuisances to be measured factually and objectively, and to ensure that all commercial and industrial uses will provide methods to protect the town from hazards which can be prevented by processes of control and elimination.
(B) If any standards are established by local or state building or fire codes, by local waste water or solid waste ordinances, by any department or agency of the State of Rhode Island or by any federal agency, which conflict with the standards specified in this subchapter, the more stringent or restrictive standards shall apply.
