The following establish the setback and buffer requirements for expansion or new structures on a parcel in this district. These requirements do not apply to structures existing as of the date of annexation, but only to expansion of, or new, structures. The setback and buffer requirements vary depending upon the nature of the expanding or new structure and the nature of the zoning or use of the abutting parcel.
B. Expansions and new structures used for permitted uses, or uses similar to permitted uses, listed in the general commercial, industrial, business park, airport commercial, or airport industrial zoning districts, excluding uses listed in the limited commercial district, shall be set back 25 feet from all property lines.
C. Expansions and new structures used for permitted uses, or uses similar to permitted uses, listed in the general commercial, industrial, business park, airport commercial or airport industrial zoning districts, excluding uses listed in the limited commercial district, that are within 35 feet of property zoned or used for residential purposes shall have buffer landscaping. The landscaping shall be along the property line facing the residential use for the length of the expanded or new structure, plus 30 feet on either side of the structure.
1. Buffer landscaping shall consist of shrubs, trees, or a combination which will attain a mature height of at least six feet, with an average height of eight feet, planted at intervals less than 10 feet on center. The landscaping bed shall be eight feet in width. Deciduous trees or bushes may no make up more than 50 percent of the mixture.
2. All landscaping requirements must be met within 12 months of occupancy, and continue to meet such standards thereafter. All dead shrubs and trees shall be replaced to maintain the landscaping. (Ord. 632 § 4, 2004)
