Welcome back, Joan!  Please don't worry one bit about posting three or four
or ten times a day because the honor/consideration system has been
completely abused by some participants who, IMHO, aren't nearly as
entertaining or informative as you  :-)  If I don't want to read something,
I can use my delete key, which is something I've gotten pretty proficient at
the past few weeks.

Now, if *everyone* wants to agree to try to limit their posts to one (or two
or whatever) per topic per day, that would be one thing, but until those who
most need to limit themselves are willing to cooperate, then all bets are
off, IMHO.

Off to see what's new at New West www.newwest.net as soon as I get caught up
reading & deleting  :-)

Here, Lazy Kai, are the relevant sections of Moscow City Zoning Ordinance as
it applies to the Central Business District, the New St. Andrews, the U of
I, and your hypothetical diesel mechanics school:
"Sec. 11-9. Definitions. . . .
47. Institution, Educational. A college or university supported by public or
private funds, tuitions, contributions or endowments, giving advanced
academic instructions as approved by the State Board of Education or by a
recognized accrediting agency, excluding preschool, elementary and junior or
senior high schools, and trade and commercial schools; including fraternity
and sorority houses.

79. School. An institution of learning which offers instruction in several
branches of learning and study required to be taught in the public schools
by the Idaho State Board of Education including elementary, junior or senior
high, including public, private and parochial and also including preschool
and kindergarten.

80. School, Commercial. A program whereby instruction is given to pupils in
arts, crafts or trades and operated as a commercial enterprise.

Sec. 11-5. Authorized Uses.
This Zoning Code is an exclusive zoning ordinance wherein the stated uses
are the only uses which are permitted in each zoning district. Those uses
not listed as permitted or conditionally permitted are not authorized. The
question whether a specific use is encompassed by a listed use shall be
subject to th! e Zoning Administrator's or designee's reasonable discretion.
Further, when, as a result of subsequent changes in technology, business
practice, or lifestyle, a use has not been mentioned in this Zoning Code,
the Zoning Administrator or designee may permit such use if it is clear that
the use is comparable to listed uses for a particular zoning district.
Alternatively, the Zoning Administrator or designee may refer such proposed
use to the Board of Adjustment for review as a conditional use. Any other
use not listed may only be permitted upon amendment of this Zoning Code to
include such use in the appropriate zoning district."
Perhaps Sally Struthers is on her way to Moscow right now to install a
branch of ITT Tech in the basement of CJ's.  Or maybe we'll get one of those
schools of art that asks applicants to draw a picture of a pirate or a
turtle -- the World Turtle, I mean, the one the folk in Terry Pratchett's
Discworld novels worship.  (We've got to get religion in there somewhere,
don't we?)
BTW, if anyone does open a diesel mechanics school, please, sign me up.  I
want to be a diesel dyke!

PS: Damn!  My three posts per day are up.  Nighty-night, Muscovites!  If any
of you would like to read my copious (and entirely negative) ruminations on
the city of New Orleans, I invite you to visit www.newwest.net and follow
the link in the Northern Idaho section down on the left-hand side of the
page.  The piece is called "New Orleans: The City that Chlorox Forgot."  Oh,
and there's also a piece up there about wee Nate's complaint against the
Food Co-Op.  That one's called "Twilight Zoning: Moscow Pastor's Minions
Play Tit for Tat."  Have fun -- I did!
