2.6.1 MEASUREMENT OF BUILDING HEIGHT A. Building height is measured as the number of stories (syn. floors) in a building. A story is a

habitable level in a building of no more than 15 feet in height from finished floor to finished ceiling. B. Where a maximum height is also provided in feet, that height shall be taken from the average sidewalk or site grade at the front facade of the building to the mean roof height or top of the parapet. Where the building is located in a flood zone, the height shall be taken from the first finished floor above the base flood elevation.

F. Certain buildings (such as gymnasiums, religious institutions, theatres, etc.) may require finished floor-to-ceiling heights greater than 15 feet. In such instances, the number of stories shall be calculated as the finished floor-to-ceiling height (in feet) divided by 15. Any fractions of a story shall be rounded up to the next whole number. G. Specific to T5-DC: The maximum height at the property line shall be 3 stories, and the maximum height 15 feet behind the property line, or front line of the building, shall be 4 stories.

3.2.1 OVERVIEW OF USE CATEGORIES A. Definition of Use Category: See Section 13.1 (Definitions of Specialized Terms)

B.
Basis for Classification: Use categories classify land uses and activities into categories based on common functional, product, or physical characteristics. Characteristics include the type and amount of activity, the type of customers or residents, how goods or services are sold or delivered and site conditions. The use categories provide a systematic basis for assigning present and future land uses into appropriate Districts.

C.
Principal Uses: Principal uses are assigned to the category that most closely describes the nature of the principal use. The Characteristics subsection of each use category describes the common characteristics of each principal use.

1. Developments with Multiple Principal Uses: When all principal uses of a development fall within one use category, the entire development is assigned to that use category. When the principal uses of a development fall within different use categories, each principal use is classified in the applicable category and each use is subject to all applicable regulations for that category.

D.
Accessory Uses: Accessory uses are allowed by-right in conjunction with a principal use, unless otherwise stated in this Code. Also, unless otherwise stated, accessory uses are subject to the same regulations as the principal use. Common accessory uses are listed as examples in the use category descriptions. See Section 3.12 for additional standards for accessory uses and structures.

E.
Use of Examples: The Examples subsection of each use category lists common examples of uses included in the respective use category. The names of these sample uses are generic. They are based on common meanings and not on what a specific use may call itself. For example, a use that calls itself a wholesale warehouse, but sells mostly to consumers, is included in the Retail Sales and Service category rather than the Wholesale Sales category. This is because the actual activity on the site matches the description of the Retail Sales and Service category.
