Certain land uses may locate in a given district as a matter of right upon compliance with special regulations for such a land use. A further distinction is made for land uses which may locate in a given district only upon obtaining a conditional use or temporary use permit. Section 30-71: Regulation of Allowable Uses The allowable land uses for each zoning district are established in Article II of this Chapter. Detailed descriptions and regulations for uses are found in Sections 30-75 through 30-87. Even if a land use may be indicated as permitted by right or requiring a conditional use in a particular district, such a land use may not necessarily be permitted or permissible on any or every property in such district. No land use is permitted or permissible on a property unless it can be located on it or implemented in full compliance with all of the applicable standards and regulations of this Chapter or unless an appropriate variance has been granted pursuant to Section 30-411. For land uses not specifically listed, the Director of Community Development, or designee shall make an interpretation to identify a comparable use or determine if an amendment to this Chapter is necessary. (A) Principal Land Uses Permitted by Right. Principal land uses listed as permitted by right (designated by the letter “P” in Section 30-74) are permitted per the general land use requirements of this Article; per the density, intensity, and bulk regulations of the specific zoning district in which they are located; per any additional requirements imposed by applicable overlay districts; per all other applicable requirements of this Chapter; and per any and all other applicable City, county, state, and federal regulations. (B) Principal Land Uses Permitted as Conditional Uses. Principal land uses allowed only with a conditional use permit (designated by the letter “C” in Section 30-74) may be permitted subject to all the requirements applicable to uses permitted by right as listed in Subsection (1), above, plus any additional requirements applicable to that particular land use imposed as part of the conditional use permit process established in Section 30-382. Except for uses approved under a general development plan and specific implementation plan in a planned development (see City of Oshkosh Zoning Ordinance Municipal Code City of Oshkosh Chapter 30 – Article III - Page 2 Municipal Codes Section 30-387), all uses requiring a conditional use permit shall comply with the procedural requirements of Section 30-382. (C) Accessory Land Uses. Accessory land uses are allowed subject to all the requirements and exceptions applicable to principal land uses permitted by right as listed in Subsection (A), above. Accessory land uses allowed only with a conditional use permit are subject to all the requirements and exceptions applicable to principal land uses requiring a conditional use permit as listed in Subsection (B), above. Accessory land uses shall also comply with the following listed regulations. (1) No accessory structure or use shall be constructed on any lot prior to the establishment of an allowable principal use, unless otherwise stated in this Chapter. (2) Accessory land uses and structures shall not be located within the required front or street yard setback. This applies to corner, single-frontage, and double- frontage lots. (3) With the exception of an In-Home Suite, in no instance shall an accessory structure, unfinished cellar, unfinished basement, tent, or recreational trailer be used as a residence. (D) Temporary Land Uses. Temporary land uses permitted by right (designated by the letter “P” in the Table of Land Uses in Section 30-74) are permitted on a temporary basis subject to permitting requirements of Section 30-383 of this Chapter. Temporary land uses permitted only with a conditional use permit (designated by the letter “C” in the Table of Land Uses) may be permitted subject to temporary use and conditional use permitting requirements of Sections 30-383 and 30-382.

No more than one nonresidential land use shall be permitted in any building with the following exception: multiple permitted by right land uses are allowed in a multi-business building and only require a land use permit (Section 30-384) to confirm the proposed tenants are permitted. Examples include a multi-tenant office building; a strip mall; an antique mall; a downtown building mixing office, personal or professional services, and indoor sales and service land uses; and other arrangements with multiple permitted uses in one or more occupied spaces. A land use which is regulated as a conditional use may only occupy multi-tenant buildings as approved through the conditional use process (Section 30-382) or a successor conditional use. (K) Accessory Uses. Accessory uses may be allowed where they comply with the following conditions and requirements: (1) Separation from Principal Structures. Detached accessory buildings shall be located a minimum of 5 feet from a residential dwelling unit on the same lot, except where the structure will be constructed to fire-rating standards of the Uniform Dwelling Code. The “separation” distance between a dwelling unit and accessory structure is determined by measuring the perpendicular distance from wall to wall of the structures. Minor attachments such as handrails, latticework, trellises, or pergolas may be located in the required separation area and do not render the structures attached for setback purposes. (2) Conversion of Accessory Structures to Dwellings. The conversion of any accessory structure into a dwelling so as to accommodate an increased number of dwelling units or families, shall be permitted only within a district in which a new building for similar occupancy would be permitted under this Chapter.

The Director of Community Development, or designee, shall have the ability to extend this period by an additional 18 months if the property owner has a concept plan, as approved by the Director of Community Development, or designee, to build a new principal building or otherwise redevelop the site in a manner that uses the accessory structure.
