Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What does the term “Grandfathered” mean?

A: Grandfathered is a layman’s term for an existing non-conforming use or structure. When a use or structure is in operation and regulation changes to make that use no longer legal, it is generally considered “existing non-conforming” or “Grandfathered”. This means a new structure that does not meet the new code for the district cannot be constructed, or a new use of this type that does not meet the new code will no be permitted. However, as long as the existing use or structure is not abandoned for a period of 6 months or more, or subject to destruction in excess of 50% of the property value, it may continue its current operation.
