Upon inspection of the property, it appears that activities related to this business have evolved to a level of intensity, which is not consistent with the Light Industrial and Warehousing (ILW) Zoning District designation, and further, to an extent such that a Change of Use has occurred. Section 24-112 of the City’s Land Development Regulations states: The Light Industrial and Warehousing Zoning Districts are intended for light manufacturing, storage and warehousing, processing or fabrication of non- objectionable products, not involving the use of materials, processes or machinery likely to cause undesirable effects upon nearby or adjacent residential or commercial activities. The current activities occurring in association with this business are those classified within the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Code Manual as Heavy Construction within Industry Group 1629. The Occupational License issued, and renewed, for this business states that the use is a land development company, which is included within SIC Industry Group 6552. Such use is consistent with the ILW District. Please be advised, that activities on this site must be limited to those permitted within the ILW District, and as provided for by the Duval County and the City of Atlantic Beach Occupational Page two Mr. Dawson December 16, 2002 Lisences that have been issued to the business. The ILW district does not permit storage of earth moving and land excavation materials, flammable liquids, and further, does not permit processes or the use of materials, which are likely to cause undesirable effects upon nearby or adjacent residential or commercial activities.
