165.010 PURPOSE. The purpose of the I (Industrial) zone is to implement the Rural Development policies of the Comprehensive Plan and recognize existing industrial uses in rural and natural resource areas of the county. This zone is applied to land committed to, or intended for, industrial uses outside Urban Unincorporated Communities, Rural Communities, and Rural Service Centers, as those terms are defined in the Comprehensive Plan and Oregon Administrative Rules. The purpose and intent of the Industrial zone is to provide for the location, in rural areas, of needed industrial uses which are not dependent upon urban services. The I zone encourages orderly and compatible development of industrial uses, including agricultural related industry, on rural lands. These lands are suited for industrial use due to marginal agricultural soils, adverse circumstances such as shape, proximity to railroad or transmission line corridors or proximity to markets or resources. The Industrial zone may be appropriate in rural areas designated in the Marion County Comprehensive Plan as Industrial or in locations which meet the intent of the zone.
The uses within the I zone are functionally classified by description of the particular activity or by reference to a category in the “Standard Industrial Classification Manual, (SIC).” The SIC index number is referenced as an aid to interpretation of uses. Where the term used to describe a use is defined in Chapter 110, the definition takes precedence over any SIC classification.
165.020 PERMITTED USES. Within any I zone no building, structure, or premises shall be used, or arranged, except as permitted by this ordinance. Only the following uses may be permitted at a scale appropriate to serve the rural area, subject to section 165.060:
