Domestic Fowl Overlay District (DFOD): The purpose of creating a domestic fowl overlay district is to permit the keeping of chickens, pigeons, doves and other domestic fowl on lots with a rural and semi-rural character that also contain a dwelling unit as a principal use. The keeping of domestic fowl is permitted by right on A-1 zoned properties and on SRR zoned properties by Special Use Permit on a lot with or without a principal residence within this district. To ensure reasonable protection of health, safety and welfare associated with the keeping of domestic fowl, development regulations specific to this district are provisioned. The keeping of domestic fowl is not permitted outside of the Domestic Fowl Overlay District, except on A-1 zoned lots of ten (10) acres or larger.
Historic Overlay District (HOD): A Historic Overlay District is created for the purpose of imposing special requirements in addition to the requirements pertaining to the underlying zoning district in designated areas of the County, in order to protect and perpetuate those areas or structures which have been designated as being of significant historic, architectural, or cultural interest. Regulations imposed in such a district are intended to: 1) protect against destruction of, or encroachment upon such historic resources; 2) encourage uses which will continue to preserve them, and; 3) prevent the creation of adverse environmental influences. Exterior alterations to buildings within the historic overlay district are administered by the Architectural Review Board.
Technology Overlay District (TeOD): The Technology Overlay District (TeOD) is intended to promote harmonious development which is conducive to establishing and maintaining collaborative public-private research partnerships. To achieve this intent, the district will be located adjacent to a major public institution, such as an institute of higher education. The district will primarily promote those nonresidential uses that support and enhance the activities of the major public institution and that respond to the County's targeted industries program. In addition, the district will provide for residential dwelling units for people primarily associated with the targeted industries and the major public institution. The district will also provide for compatible nonresidential service uses needed to support the overall public-private research environment. The TeOD is specifically intended to provide for primary employment uses consistent with the county's targeted industry program. These primary employment uses include research facilities, offices, prototype production facilities, and other light manufacturing operations that require the continual or recurrent application of advanced research.Special requirements in addition to or in place of the requirements of an underlying zoning district may be imposed to achieve the desired goals set forth above. Such requirements are intended to promote harmonious development by:
