A. Applicability. The definitions in chapter 18.6.1 apply to actions and interpretations under the Land Use Ordinance (AMC Title 18). The meanings of some terms in this chapter may, in certain contexts in which they are used, be clearly inapplicable. In such cases the context in which a term is used will indicate its intended meaning, and that intent shall control.

B. General Provisions. Terms not defined herein shall have their ordinary accepted meanings within the context in which they are used. Webster’s Third New International Dictionary of the English Language, Unabridged, shall be considered a standard reference. Where the singular variation of a term is used it also includes the plural.

C. Conflicting Definitions. Where a term listed in chapter 18.6.1 is defined by another section of this ordinance or by another code or statute referenced by this ordinance, the term is not redefined herein for purposes of that other code or statute.
