(a) Use Classification System.
For the purpose of this Zoning Code, uses are classified into use categories and subcategories. These are described and defined in § 14-601 (Use Categories). Use categories and subcategories are identified in the first column of the use tables. In some cases, specific use types are listed in addition to the use subcategories.
(b) Permitted Uses.
Uses identified with a "Y" in the use tables are permitted as-of-right in the subject zoning district, subject to compliance with any use-specific standards identified in the final column of the use tables and all other applicable standards of this Zoning Code.
(c) Special Exceptions.
Uses identified with an "S" in the use tables are allowed if reviewed and approved in accordance with the special exception procedures in § 14-303(7) (Special Exception Approval). Uses approved by special exception are subject to compliance with any use-specific standards identified in the final column of the use tables and all other applicable standards of this zoning code.
(d) Prohibited Uses.
Uses identified with an "N" are expressly prohibited. Where use categories and subcategories are not listed in a use table, they are also prohibited.
(e) Use-Specific Standards.
The "Use-Specific Standards" column of use tables identifies use-specific standards that apply to some uses. Unless otherwise expressly stated, compliance with such standards is required regardless of whether the use is permitted as-of-right or requires special exception approval. Additional use regulations and standards may also be imposed through overlay zoning districts (See Chapter 14-500 (Overlay Zoning Districts)) or elsewhere in this Zoning Code.
