A. 
In order to carry out the provisions of this chapter, the City is hereby divided into the following basic zoning districts determined by actual development conditions existing at the time of adoption of this chapter (September 12, 1984):
(1) 
Established (E) — areas where the character of development is stable and few changes are anticipated or encouraged.
(2) 
Developing (D) — areas where most land is from vacant or rural use to urban use and densities.
(3) 
Redeveloping (R) — areas where many buildings and uses are likely to be rehabilitated or replaced, or the character of the area could change and such action is to be encouraged.
B. 
The purpose of the three basic zoning districts is to recognize that areas of the City are in various stages of development, therefore calling for different degrees and emphasis in land use control. It is intended that the boundaries of the basic zoning districts shown on the zoning map, adopted contemporaneously herewith, will not usually be changed. It is further intended that the only anticipated change in basic zoning district boundaries will be from established or developing district to a redeveloping district, and such change would be justified only where it is demonstrated that the character of an area has so changed that its redevelopment is necessary and in the public interest.
C. 
The basic zoning districts are further divided into the following use districts:
(1) 
Residential (R);
(2) 
Business (B);
(3) 
Business/Light manufacturing (B/LM);
(4) 
Industrial (I);
(5) 
Public (P);
(6) 
Agricultural (A);
(7) 
Transitional (T);
(8) 
Open space (OS).
D. 
For more definitive use separation and for distinction by control of density, the basic zoning districts and use districts are further subdivided into the following specific zoning districts:
(1) 
Established districts (E).
Rural residential (RR-E) - areas which are primarily used for single unit residential in a "rural" setting on large lots.
Low density residential (LR-E) - an area which is used for single-unit residential development on lots ranging from six thousand square feet minimum but less than one-half acre.
Low density residential .5 (LR-E.5) - an area which is used for single unit residential development on lots ranging from one-half acre minimum but less than one acre.
Medium density residential (MR-E) - areas which are primarily used for or permit single-family residential and multiunit development at duplex, triplex or townhouse densities.
High density residential (HR-E) - areas which are primarily used for or permit multi-unit residential development at apartment densities.
Neighborhood business (NB-E) - areas with convenience retail services typified by quick service serving a single neighborhood or two at most.
Community business (CB-E) - community centers serving two or more neighborhoods, where retail-type stores predominate, anchored by a supermarket-type store.
Highway business (HB-E) - areas which serve the traveling public as well as local residents, they are oriented to vehicular traffic and service.
Regional business (RB-E) - center of the Evanston market area where a wide range of retail and commercial operations are permitted, including the largest regional-scale businesses.
Industrial (I-E) - industrial areas which were existing when this code was adopted, primarily developed for processing, storage, manufacturing and commercial uses.
Agricultural (A-E) - areas in a natural state or in which the growing of crops, flowers, trees or other similar farming or ranching activity is practiced.
Public (P-E) - areas in which public and semi-public facilities and uses are located, including governmental and educational uses.
(2) 
Developing districts (D).
Low density residential (LR-D) - areas which will be primarily developed for low-density residential uses, with complementary uses permitted under certain conditions.
Low density residential mixed (LR-M) - an area which is used for single-unit residential development, including single family dwellings and manufactured homes, on lots ranging from six thousand square feet minimum but less than one-half acre.
Low density residential mixed .5 (LR-M.5) - an area which is used for single-unit residential development, including single family dwellings and manufactured homes, on lots ranging from one-half acre minimum but less than one acre.
Medium density residential (MR-D) - areas which will be primarily developed at single-family residential and multiunit residential densities, and where attached dwelling units and compatible uses to serve the area will be encouraged with complementary uses permitted under certain conditions.
High density residential (HR-D) - areas which will be primarily developed at high-intensity residential and apartment densities, with complementary uses permitted under certain conditions.
Office (O-D) - areas which are expected to develop as office complexes and complementary uses.
Neighborhood business (NB-D) - areas with convenience retail services typified by quick service serving a single neighborhood or two at most.
Community business (CB-D) - retail centers serving a number of neighborhoods, where retail-type stores and convenience services will predominate.
Highway business (HB-D) - areas which will be developed to serve the traveling public as well as local residents, they are oriented to vehicular traffic and service.
Regional business (RB-D) - areas which will develop into a regional center for the Evanston market area, where a wide range of retail and commercial operations are permitted, including the largest regional-scale businesses.
Light industrial (LI-D) - areas which will be primarily developed for limited, environmentally-controlled manufacturing or intensive employment uses in an industrial park setting.
Heavy industrial (HI-D) - areas which will primarily be used for outdoor storage, heavy equipment storage and other types of industrial uses not compatible with residential neighborhoods.
Transitional (T-D) - areas adjacent to a commercial district which allow for single family homes and for the adaptive reuse of existing residential structures for business purposes. Existing structures may be renovated or modified, but shall not be replaced with a new building for a business.
Developable open space (DOS) - includes property ten acres minimum, which can be used for residential, agricultural, livestock and crop production purposes.
Natural open space (NOS) - includes property which contains topographically constrained areas, wetlands, vegetative area and water features which can be used for agricultural purposes, grazing, recreation and the preservation of nondevelopable land.
Rural residential (RR-1) - an area which offers single-unit residential development on lots ranging from one acre minimum but less than five acres.
Rural residential (RR-5) - an area which offers single-unit residential development on lots ranging from five acres minimum but less than ten acres.
(3) 
Redeveloping districts (R).
Business/Light manufacturing (B/LM) - areas where buildings and uses can transition to a mix of commercial and light manufacturing uses. Light manufacturing means a manufacturing use, primarily from previously prepared materials of finished products or parts, including processing, fabrication, assembly, treatment, product packaging, incidental storage, sales and distribution of such products but excluding basic industrial processing which involves the processing of raw materials. All uses shall be conducted inside an enclosed building. Any noise, vibration, smoke, vapor, dust, fumes, odor, glare, or other environmental contamination produced by such uses shall be confined to the lot upon which such uses are located and controlled in accordance with applicable local, state and federal law, rules and regulations.
Medium density residential (MR-R) - areas which are in the process of changing from existing development to a primary use of multi-unit residential units or mobile homes where each unit usually has direct access at ground level.
High density residential (HR-R) - areas which are in the process of changing from low density development to multi-family unit apartments.
Office (O-R) - areas primarily devoted to office buildings or transition areas that are moving from residential use to conversion of the buildings to office uses as a buffer between business or traffic areas and residential areas.
Highway business (HB-R) - areas in the process of changing from existing mixed development to serve the traveling public as well as local residents, the uses are oriented to vehicular traffic and service.
Regional business (RB-R) - areas in the process of changing from existing business, residential or industrial uses into a regional business service area with a wide range of retail and commercial uses at various scales of operation.
Transitional (T-R) - areas adjacent to a commercial district which will allow for a mixed use of residential structures, adaptive reuse of residential structures for business purposes and businesses utilizing new buildings.
[Amended by Ord. No. 94-26; Ord. 96-1; Ord. 02-10]
A. 
The boundaries of the zoning areas and districts created by section 24-13 are hereby established as shown on maps entitled "Zoning District Map of the City of Evanston, Wyoming" which maps and all official amendments thereto are hereby made a part of this chapter. These maps and all official amendments thereto may be subject to the following special provisions and interpretations:
(1) 
Unless otherwise defined on the zoning district maps, district boundary lines are lot lines; the centerlines of streets, alleys, railroad rights-of-way or such lines extended; section lines; corporate limit lines; center lines of stream beds; or other lines drawn to scale on the zoning district map.
(2) 
Areas subject to related official City regulations may be indicated on the zoning district maps where appropriate.
(3) 
As part of the zoning district map, the governing body has adopted a gaming overlay which illustrates areas where gaming establishments may be conditionally permitted.
(4) 
Whenever the governing body establishes a transitional developing district, it shall also consider and may adopt as an official amendment to the zoning district map, a transitional redeveloping overlay for the district. The overlay shall divide the land within the district into separate tracts which will set forth recommended tracts for the construction of new business buildings in the transitional redeveloping zone, that are of an adequate size to conduct business, have sufficient access to public streets, and would not leave remnant, isolated or unusable parcels. At a minimum, the construction of any new business building in a transitional redeveloping zone shall take place only on a single lot of at least 5,000 square feet or multiple lots of at least 10,000 square feet when combined unless a variance is obtained from the board of adjustment pursuant to Article XI of Chapter 24 of the City Code.
B. 
When designating the tracts set forth in the transitional redeveloping overlay the City shall assure that each tract is of an adequate size to conduct business, has sufficient access to public streets, and that no remnant, isolated or unusable lots are created.
[Added by Ord. No. 94-26; amended by Ord. 96-1; Ord. No. 96-19; Ord. No. 97-13; Ord. No. 98-14; Ord. No. 99-4; Ord. No. 99-13; Ord. No. 00-6; Ord. No. 03-07; Ord. No. 03-26]
To facilitate public understanding of this chapter and for the better administration and convenience of use thereof, the following schedule of "uses allowed by right," and "uses permitted by conditional review" regulations for the various zoning districts is hereby adopted and declared to be a part of this chapter, and may be amended in the same manner as any other part of this chapter. In each zoning district, any use category not expressly permitted shall be deemed excluded. If a question arises as to whether a specific use does or does not come within the following expressed use categories, any person may apply to the planning department for a determination as to whether a specific use is expressly permitted.
