Zoning Handbook

A use involving services owned, managed, or provided by local government and associated with providing neighborhood-scaled services to meet the community needs of the directly adjacent areas.

  • Examples: public community centers, police stations, libraries, or fire stations.
  • Exceptions: This use category does not include large-scale government uses with a regional or larger service area or uses which more typically would fall within the large scale government, emergency shelter, parks and recreation, or motor vehicle-related use category. It also does not include administrative offices of local government agencies, when those office functions meet the definition of the office use category.
