Substantive Changes: Fossil Fuel Terminals Zoning Code Amendments

  • Identify “Bulk Fossil Fuel Terminals” as a regulated land use, characterized by (a) marine, railroad, or pipeline transport access and (b) either storage capacity exceeding 2 million gallons or transload facilities (such as rail-to-ship loading).
  • Prohibit new Bulk Fossil Fuel Terminals in all base zones.
  • Classify existing Bulk Fossil Fuel Terminals in industrial and general employment zones as “limited uses” that can continue to operate, but may not expand.
  • Allow new tanks for storage of non-fossil fuels, non-fuel petroleum based products, aviation fuels and other exceptions.

The official Title 33, Planning and Zoning (Zoning Code) is the printed copy in the Development Services Center. PDFs available on this website are not the official text of Title 33, Planning and Zoning. Although every effort is made to ensure that the two texts are identical, errors or differences may remain. It is the user's responsibility to verify the legal accuracy of all provisions.
