    landfills

    Does anyone have a landfill zone? If so, what is permitted in the zone? What requirements do you have in evaluating either new landfills or expansions to existing landfills?

    We have created a special zoning district named after the town next door... oh wait, no, we tell people to go to the town next door.

    I can't recall ever seeing such a zoning classification. I did some research on the topic a number of years ago. From what I remember, siting is really first an issue of the underlying geology more so than land use.

    Sounds like a job for performance standards rather than a new zoning district. Be sure you understand what your state/province requires when writing the standards.

    The last city I worked for had 3 landfills. In wisconsin they are state regulated, and the state rules trump all local zoning authorities

    Not quite a landfill zone, it's just zoned Public Buildings/Facilities.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    The city I previously worked for came up with a supplimental industrial zone for a large landfill/recycling/transfer station facility. Try contacting the City of Rochester, NH :

    www.ci.rochester.nh.us

    The district is the I-4A district.....with a little digging I may be able to come up with the language....yep....here's their ordinance:
