Classification of New and Unlisted Uses
It is recognized that new types of land use will develop and forms of land use not anticipated may seek to locate in the City. In order to provide for such changes and contingencies, a determination as to the appropriate classification of any new or unlisted use shall be made as follows:

A. Administrative Official Action.
The Administrative Official may refer the question concerning any new or unlisted use to the Planning and Zoning Commission requesting an interpretation as to the zoning classification into which such use should be placed. The referral of the use interpretation question shall be accompanied by a statement of facts listing the nature of the use and whether it involves dwelling activity, sales, processing, type of product, storage and amount and nature thereof, enclosed or open storage, anticipated employment, transportation requirements, the amount of noise, odor, fumes, dust, toxic material, hazardous materials, and vibration likely to be generated and the general requirements for public utilities such as water and sanitary sewer.

B. Planning and Zoning Commission Action.
The Planning and Zoning Commission shall consider the nature and described performance of the proposed use and its compatibility with the uses permitted in the various districts and shall determine the zoning district or districts within which such use should be permitted.

C. City Council Action.
The Planning and Zoning Commission shall transmit its findings and recommendations to the City Council as to the classification proposed for any new unlisted use. The City Council may, by ordinance, approve the recommendation of the Commission or make such determination concerning the classification of such use as is determined by the Council to be appropriate.
