Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     11-2-27.   Regulations for control and elimination of nonconforming uses--Continuation of existing uses--Gradual elimination of discontinued nonconforming uses. The board may by resolution as provided in § 11-2-25 prescribe such regulations not contrary to law or § 11-2-26, as it deems desirable or necessary to regulate and control, or reduce the number or extent of or bring about the gradual elimination of nonconforming uses, lots, or occupancies. However, in accordance with the provisions of § 11-2-26, any lawful use, lot, or occupancy of land or premises existing at the time of the adoption of the zoning ordinance may be continued, even though the use, lot, or occupancy does not conform to the provisions of the zoning ordinance. If the use, lot, or occupancy is discontinued for more than one year, the board may adopt, after notice by registered or certified mail to the property owners, an amortization schedule to bring about the gradual elimination of the nonconforming use, lot, or occupancy.
