The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS, pronounced Nakes) was developed under the direction and guidance of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as the standard for use by Federal statistical agencies in classifying business establishments for the collection, tabulation, presentation, and analysis of statistical data describing the U.S. economy. Use of the standard provides uniformity and comparability in the presentation of these statistical data. NAICS is based on a production-oriented concept, meaning that it groups establishments into industries according to similarity in the processes used to produce goods or services.
The City of Greenfield’s Zoning Code determines permitted/special uses by relying on the 6-digit NAICS number, which will need to be provided to the Community Development staff. NAICS numbers are given for each use type listed in Table 21.04.0603 of the Greenfield Zoning Code. (Note: Permitted Use = P, Special Use = S, Not Permitted = Blank)
