Change of Use Catagories
Except for Farming and Forestry changes to other uses which always require a permit, change of use occurs when a use changes from one category to another and when trips per day increase.
For example: Multi Family changing from 3 to 5 units IS NOT a change in use (still a driveway). However, Multi Family changing from 1 to 6 units is (Driveway to Entrance); Home business/service/professional changing to Business Professional & Service under 50 trips IS a change in use; Institutional Uses under 50 trips changing to Retail Use under 50 trips IS a change in use. A Retail Use changing to an institutional use is a change in use. A change of use permit will be required when a use within a driveway category increases activity on site to change from a driveway to an entrance.
*Business Professional & Service uses include real estate, beauty shop, day care, lawyer, appraiser, appliance and residential machinery repair shops and similar uses
