(A) It is recognized that this chapter may require interpretation to assign all possible land uses to individual zoning districts. For any land use which is not specifically set forth in this chapter, staff shall review the land use for consistency with the intent set forth in each zoning district and for compatibility with land use characteristics typical of land uses permitted within those districts. Then, staff shall determine the appropriate zoning district for any land use which is not specifically set forth in this chapter. In case of disagreement with the determination of the staff in assigning a land use to an appropriate zoning district, any aggrieved party may file an appeal with the Board of Zoning Appeals pursuant to the provisions of § 194.202 of this chapter.
(B) If it is determined by the staff and no appeal of the staff’s decision is filed with the Board of Zoning Appeals pursuant to the provisions of § 194.202 of this chapter or determined by the Board of Zoning Appeals that a particular use is not permitted in any agricultural, residential, commercial, industrial or other zoning district provided for in this chapter, then such use shall be deemed to require a special exception in the most restrictive agricultural, residential, commercial, industrial or other zoning district most similar to the particular use (i.e., the O-1 District for open land and agriculturally-related uses; the R-MF-2 District for residentially-related uses; the B-3 District for commercially related uses; or the I-3 District for industrially-related uses).
