ORDINANCE NO. BL2000-244
An ordinance to amend Title 17 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws, the Zoning Code of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, relating to providing for the manufacturing of compost from raw materials as a medium manufacturing activity.
Whereas, Substitute Ordinance SO96-555 enacted a new comprehensive zoning code (Title 17 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws); and
Whereas, the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County has monitored the effectiveness of that new code to implement the general plan and protect the health, safety and general welfare of the community; and
Whereas, it is now in the best interest of the citizens of Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County to amend selected provisions of that new zoning code so as to better implement the general plan and protect the public health, safety and general welfare of the community;
Now, therefore, be it enacted by the Council of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County:
SECTION 1. That Title 17 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws, be and is hereby amended as specifically described in Exhibit A, attached hereto and incorporated herein; and
SECTION 2. This ordinance shall take effect five days from and after its passage upon publication of the caption and a summary of the ordinance in a newspaper of general circulation in Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
Chapter 17.04 (General Provisions and Definitions)
amend Section 17.04.060 (Definitions) to insert into
definition for "Medium manufacturing" two new sentences between the first and
second sentence as follows:
Medium manufacturing means the processing and manufacturing of materials or products predominately from extracted or raw materials. These activities may include outdoor assembly and storage of products. Outdoor manufacturing of raw materials into compost, primarily for commercial resale, is a medium manufacturing activity. These activities do no necessitate the storage of large volumes of highly flammable, toxic matter or explosive materials needed for the manufacturing process.
