§ 158.002  PURPOSE.
   (a)   These regulations have been based upon the following land use regulatory tools:
      (1)   The Sioux Falls 2040 Comprehensive Development Plan adopted by the board of county commissioners on April 25, 2017, and the city council on October 11, 2016, and as amended by the city council (April 18, 2017); and
      (2)   The Lincoln County Comprehensive Plan as adopted by the board of county commissioners on September 27, 2004.
   (b)   All of the aforementioned land use regulatory tools are in conformance with SDCL ch. 11-2, 11-4 and 11-6. These regulations shall establish a common working relationship between Lincoln County and the city to carry out the goals and objectives of the plan as adopted by the county and city, but especially to lessen congestion in the streets; to secure safety from fire, panic and other dangers; to promote health and the general welfare; to provide adequate light and air; to prevent the overcrowding of land; to avoid undue concentration or scattering of population; and to encourage a distribution of population or mode of land utilization that will facilitate the economical and adequate provisions of transportation, roads, water supply, drainage, sanitation, education, recreation or other public requirements. The regulations are intended to preserve and protect existing property uses and values against adverse or unharmonious adjacent uses by zoning land outside the corporate boundaries of the city.
