Like commercial zoning, industrial zoning can be specific to the type of business. Environmental factors including noise concerns usually are issues in determining into which industrial level a business falls. Manufacturing plants and many storage facilities have industrial zoning. Certain business, such as airports, may warrant their own designation.
Industrial Zoning is often dependent upon the amount of lot coverage, which is the land area covered by all buildings on a lot, and building height. Additionally, set-back requirements are higher for industrial zoned properties.
