These are one of two types of districts providing land for industrial development. In general, the M-1 Districts are more suitable for smaller industries dependent upon truck transportation, while the M-2 Districts are more suitable for larger industries served by rail and water transportation and by large utility lines. In M-1 Districts, most industries are permitted, but some with particularly noxious characteristics are excluded. The permitted industries have certain requirements as to enclosure, screening and minimum distance from Residential Districts.
