Title

Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This amendment removes Secondhand Good Sales from the Definitions section and use tables in the zoning code.  The reason for this amendment is that city staff has found the definition to be slightly inconsistent with the definitions for secondhand sales contained in Section 9.24, Madison General Ordinances, requiring licensure of secondhand dealers.  Moreover, city staff has found that zoning code's definition of "Retail, General" is written broadly enough to include secondhand good sales.  Thus, this amendment eliminates the ambiguity of dueling definitions while not compromising the city's ability to regulate secondhand good sales.
