Time to whip out the actual City of Pensacola Code:
Sec 12-1-6 Nonconforming Lots Structure and Uses
(D)Nonconforming uses of land and structures. Where a legal use of land exists that would not be permitted under the terms of this title, as enacted or amended, such use shall be declared a nonconforming use and may be continued subject to the following provisions:
The Zoning is Conservation District. That is it. It's just that simple!!
We have not one but two opinions from attorneys, one for DWR and the other our City Attorney.
Both appear to be wrong!
So here we are again with a non conforming use being rebuilt. THIS IS NOT ALLOWED. There are no exceptions, there are no continuous use options, the old tower was torn down and NOTHING can be rebuilt.
The statute is simple.
Only in Pensacola...Ridiculous!
