Sec. 17.1-1. - Intent.

 

The purpose of the M-4 District, Langley Flight ApproachLand Intensive Manufacturing, is twofold. First, the district provides reasonable land use regulations for those industrial and commercial uses which, by their nature, require large amounts of land but are minimally populated by either employees or customers. Second, the district provides significant protection to the flight operations at Langley Air Force Base by allowing, in that area nearest the centerline of the runway and the end of the runway, only those uses that are not disrupted by, nor disrupting to, the Base operations. In addition, the M-4 District incorporates, where applicable, requirements to protect the visual environment of the Magruder Corridor.

 

Sec. 17.1-2. - Composition of M-4 District.

 

The M-4 District shall be composed of two (2) subdistricts:

 

(1) M-4A, Langley Flight ApproachManufacturing, Distribution and Warehousing, contains those properties east of Magruder Boulevard and within the rectangle representing the Langley flight approach, fifteen hundred (1,500) feet on either side of the extended centerline of the runway, as it is defined in the Langley AFB Air Installation Compatibility Use Study, 1990, as amended.

(2) M-4B, Langley Flight ApproachMixed Business and Manufacturing, contains those properties located east of Magruder Boulevard between Commander Shepard Boulevard and Nettles Lane that are not within the rectangle representing the Langley flight approach, fifteen hundred (1,500) feet on either side of the extended centerline of the runway, as it is defined in the Langley AFB Air Installation Compatibility Use Study, 1990, as amended.

 

Sec. 17.1-3. - Permitted uses; M-4 District.

No improvements shall be constructed within three (3) feet of any side property line that is not abutting an existing or proposed public right-of-way. However, in the case where the side property line in an M-4 District abuts upon a lot in a residential zoning district, then there shall be a side yard the same as required in the residential district.

(3) Rear yard.

No improvements shall be constructed within three (3) feet of a rear property line that is not abutting an existing or proposed public right-of-way. However, in the case where the rear property line in an M-4 District abuts upon a lot in a residential zoning district, then there shall be a rear yard the same as required in the residential district.
