18.06.010   PURPOSE.
   The purpose of this chapter is to define allowable land uses and property development standards, including density of development, for the multiple-family residential zones in order to produce healthy, safe, livable and attractive neighborhoods within the City of Anaheim, consistent with the policy direction in the Anaheim General Plan.  The intent of each of the multiple-family residential zoning districts is described below. (Ord. 5920 § 1 (part); June 8, 2004.)
18.06.020   INTENT OF INDIVIDUAL ZONES.
   The multiple-family residential zones consist of the following.
   .010   "RM-1" Multiple-Family Residential Zone.  The intent of the "RM-1" Zone is to provide an attractive, safe and healthy residential corridor environment along arterial highways, and facilitate the conversion of underutilized strip commercial areas into housing.  This zone also encourages planned residential development for attached single-family townhouses with strong street-facing orientation, incorporating a rear access drive or service alley, with a minimum building site area per dwelling unit of three thousand three hundred fifty (3,350) square feet.  This zone implements the Corridor Residential land use designation in the General Plan.
   .020   "RM-2" Multiple-Family Residential Zone.  The intent of the "RM-2" Zone is to provide an attractive, safe and healthy environment, with townhouses and other low-rise, attached, single-family units with a minimum building site area per dwelling unit of three thousand (3,000) square feet.  This zone implements the Low-Medium Density Residential and Low-Medium Hillside Density Residential land use designations in the General Plan.
   .030   "RM-3" Multiple-Family Residential Zone.  The intent of the "RM-3" Zone is to provide an attractive, safe and healthy environment with multiple-family units with a minimum building site area per dwelling unit of two thousand four hundred (2,400) square feet.  This zone implements the Low-Medium Density Residential, Mid Density Residential, and Medium Density land use designations in the General Plan.
   .035   "RM-3.5" Multiple-Family Residential Zone.  The intent of the "RM-3.5" Zone is to provide an attractive, safe and healthy environment with multiple-family units with a minimum building site area per dwelling unit of one thousand six hundred (1,600) square feet.  This zone implements the Mid Density Residential and Medium Density land use designations in the General Plan.
   .040   "RM-4" Multiple-Family Residential Zone.  The intent of the "RM-4" Zone is to provide an attractive, safe and healthy environment with multiple-family units with a minimum building site area per dwelling unit of one thousand two hundred (1,200) square feet.  This zone implements the Medium Density Residential land use designation in the General Plan.
(Ord. 5920  1 (part); June 8, 2004:  Ord. 6031 § 8; August 22, 2006:  Ord. 6436 § 1; April 24, 2018 .)

18.08.010   PURPOSE.
   The purpose of this chapter is to define allowable land uses and property development standards, including intensity of development, to provide for and encourage the orderly development of safe, attractive and healthy commercial areas within the City of Anaheim, consistent with the policy direction in the Anaheim General Plan.  (Ord. 5920 § 1 (part); June 8, 2004.)
18.08.020   INTENT OF INDIVIDUAL ZONES.
   .010   "C-G" General Commercial Zone.  The intent of the "C-G" Zone is to allow a variety of land uses, including some identified for the Neighborhood Center Commercial Zone described below.  Areas designated as "C-G" General Commercial do not necessarily serve the adjacent neighborhood or surrounding clusters of neighborhoods.  In addition to some of the uses described in the commercial centers zones, they typically include highway-serving uses such as fast food restaurants, auto-oriented uses such as tire stores and auto parts stores, and stand-alone retail uses.  This zone implements the General Commercial land use designation in the General Plan.
   .020   "C-NC" Neighborhood Center Commercial Zone.  The intent of the "C-NC" Zone is to serve surrounding neighborhoods.  It is intended to provide convenience uses such as grocery stores, drug stores, sporting goods stores, small retail stores, hair salons, dry cleaners, nail salons, hardware stores (excluding big-box retail), appliance stores, neighborhood-serving restaurants, bakeries, banks, specialty shops, and civic uses such as fire stations, post offices, community centers, and child care centers.  It is intended to encourage clusters of commercial uses, not strip commercial development.  Projects should be compatible in scale and design with adjacent residential areas and should be designed to encourage pedestrian usage.  Properties located within the "C-NC" Zone are typically one (1) to fifteen (15) acres in size.  This zone implements the Neighborhood Center land use designation in the General Plan.
   .030   "C-R" Regional Commercial Zone.  The intent of the "C-R" Zone is to serve a larger area than the "C-NC" Zone and to include some regional commercial uses. Allowable uses could include national retail chains, department stores, specialty stores, theatres, regional-serving restaurants, and big-box retail.  The "C-R" Zone also allows for limited professional offices.  Properties located within the "C-R" Zone are typically eight (8) to sixty-five (65) acres in size.  This zone implements the Regional Commercial land use designation in the General Plan.
   .040   "O-L" Low Intensity Office Zone.  The intent of the "O-L" Zone is to provide for a variety of low-intensity office uses that are typically three (3) stories or less, including local branches of financial institutions, legal services, insurance services, real estate, consulting services, professional offices, and medical or dental offices and support services.  This zone implements the Office-Low land use designation in the General Plan.
   .050   "O-H" High Intensity Office Zone.  The intent of the "O-H" Zone is to provide for higher density office uses that have at least four (4) stories.  This zone is intended to be applied in areas planned for more concentrated urban uses such as The Platinum Triangle, or in key locations at potential transit locations, major intersections, or in close proximity to activity centers such as the Community College in the North Euclid Street area.  This zone implements the Office-High land use designation in the General Plan.  (Ord. 5920 § 1 (part); June 8, 2004.)
18.08.030   USES.
   .010   Primary Uses.  Table 8-A (Primary Uses:  Commercial Zones) identifies allowable primary uses, listed by classes of uses as defined in Section 18.36.030 and Section 18.36.040 of Chapter 18.36 (Types of Uses).
   .020   Accessory Uses.  Table 8-B (Accessory Uses and Structures:  Commercial Zones) identifies allowable accessory uses and structures, listed by classes of uses as defined in Section 18.36.050 of Chapter 18.36 (Types of Uses).
   .030   Temporary Uses.  Table 8-C (Temporary Uses and Structures:  Commercial Zones) identifies allowable temporary uses and structures, listed by classes of uses as defined in Section 18.36.060 of Chapter 18.36 (Types of Uses).
   .040   The allowable uses in Tables 8-A, 8-B and 8-C for each zone are established by letter designations as follows:
      .0401   "P" designates classes of uses permitted by right;
      .0402   "C" designates classes of uses permitted with a conditional use permit;
      .0403   “M” designates classes of uses permitted with a minor conditional use permit;
