4.10.A Purpose

The interpretation process recognizes that the provisions of this Ordinance, though detailed and extensive, cannot, as a practical matter, address every specific situation to which they are applied. Many such situations can be readily addressed by an interpretation of the specific provisions of this Ordinance in the context of other general and specific Ordinance provisions. The interpretation authority is not intended to add or change the essential content of this Ordinance, but only to allow authoritative application of that content to specific cases. In addition, this interpretation process also provides a process to interpret the Master Plan Future Land Use Map.
