Section 8

§ 19.6-73 M-1 Industrial District.

A. Purpose. The purpose of this district is to provide areas within the County which are suitable for less-intensive industrial activities. M-1 areas are primarily designated based on the suitability of the land in terms of slope and freedom from flooding, as well as the availability of public services, access to arterial road network, and proximity to rail and airport facilities or the interstate highway system. Distributing these areas throughout the County in a planned manner to create employment centers within close proximity to residential growth areas and reduce heavy traffic generation of industrial uses is encouraged. Since this district promotes uses that generally will conflict with most others, a high degree of protection to adjoining properties is strongly encouraged.
