The purpose of the I-2 Light – Medium Industrial zone is to implement the Light – Medium Industrial designation of the comprehensive plan by providing areas to serve a wide variety of manufacturing and other industrial activities with controlled external impacts in locations designated for Light – Medium Industry in the comprehensive plan. These types of industries are often involved in the secondary processing of materials into components, the assembly of components into finished products, transportation, communication and utilities, wholesaling, and warehousing. The external impact from these uses is generally less than Heavy Industrial, and transportation needs are often met by truck. Activities are generally located indoors, although there may be some outdoor storage. Supporting offices and small-scale commercial uses that serve employees in the immediate area are permitted.
