Latest version.
  • A nonconforming use of land or of a structure in a district that is abandoned may not be reestablished or resumed. Any subsequent use or occupancy of the structure or land must conform to the regulations for the district in which it is located.

    Abandoned means the interruption for a period of 365 consecutive days of active or productive operations of the nonconforming use on the land or within the structure or the removal or destruction of the nonconforming elements. Any period of abandonment caused by government action and without any contributing fault by the nonconforming user is not considered in determining the period of abandonment.
