Several inadvertent typographical errors have been identified in the Land Use Matrix in the Zoning Ordinance. Research indicates these typographical errors were made in the 2012 adoption of revisions to the Land Use Matrix. Section 4.1-1 of the Zoning Ordinance clearly states that in the event of conflict between uses listed in the matrix and those listed under the zoning district text description, the uses listed in the district shall be deemed to be those authorized. Revisions included herein propose changes to make the uses in the matrix consistent with those listed in the text descriptions of the zoning districts.
