  8. There was prelim, discussion on developing a "Non-Conforming Use" category similar to the Storey County Zoning Ordinance. Several uses requiring approval may be existant after many years being in place. These non-compliances have gone thru more than one new owner. The Committee felt these new occupants should not in most cases be held responsible for review for the old installations. This use category could apply to properties with fences, sheds, etc. installed beyond say three to five years from current date. To be further study at next meeting for presentation to Board for further input. A list of these "non-conforming use" properties would be compiled for record. Many may have had verbal approvals and or lost, or misfiled.
