The existing area and dimensional regulations continue to apply to all other uses within the Light Industrial District. Section 3 amends Article 9 (Industrial District I) by clarifying that "single family detached dwellings" are permitting uses in that district, and by establishing minimum yard setbacks for single family detached dwellings in that district. The existing area and dimensional regulations continue to apply to all other uses within the Industrial District. Section 4 and Section 5, respectively, contain severability and repealer provisions.

Editor's Note:
At first glance, these seem like some pretty major changes they are making to the zoning ordinance.
