    Here, but where are you?

    Accessory activities being nonconforming?

    If a provision in a zoning ordinance changes, the use, structure, or property may become legally nonconforming. However, what if there is a change that influences an accessory component?

    These could include screening and location for residential garbage cans, surface materials for residential driveways and parking areas, and the outdoor storage of recreational vehicles including boats, motor homes, jetskis, and ATVs.

    How would your community handle regulations requiring different regulations than what was previously not addressed when the residential use is permitted?
    "The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism." - George Washington

    They become non-conforming. Anythi\ng else would mean you made the ordinance retroactive. Some items may be outside of zoning such as sanitation department rules on placement of garbage containers.
