(a) Nonconforming Use of Land with No Structures. The legal nonconforming use of land, where structure(s) do not exist on the effective date of this Development Code, may continue for a period of not more than ten years, provided:
(1) The nonconforming use of land shall not in any way be expanded or extended, either on the same or adjoining property.

(b) On-Site and Off-Site Signs. Legal nonconforming commercial on-site or off-site signs existing on the effective date of this Development Code may be continued, although the use does not conform with the provisions of this Development Code; provided, however, that the nonconforming signs and their supporting members shall be completely removed by their owners no later than five years from the effective date of this Development Code.
(c) Reclassification of Land Use Zoning Districts. The provisions in this Section shall also apply to structures and land and uses that become nonconforming due to a reclassification of land use zoning districts under this Development Code.
