Nonconforming lots or parcels, uses, and structures are detrimental to the orderly development and general welfare of citizens and property. This land use code provides for the orderly termination of legal nonconforming situations in order to promote the public health, safety, and general welfare, and bring these lots, uses, or structures into compliance with this land use code. Sections 9.1210 through 9.1230 are intended to:

(1) Minimize the impacts of the nonconforming situation by establishing standards that limit the expansion of the nonconformity.

(2) Provide for the correction or removal of nonconforming situations in an equitable, reasonable, and timely manner.
