The reference guide states that "The counted uses must represent at least three of the five categories, exclusive of the building’s primary use."
Our reviewer has interpreted that to mean you can't count the category that the project is in - for example a school is in the "Civic and Community Facilities" category, so you can't count a fire station, library, church, or anything else in that category.
It makes more sense to me that you would count the uses, exclusive of the building's primary use, and THEN the counted uses must represent three categories. This would mean that if the building's primary use was the only one in that category you can't count that category.
Does anyone have experience with this on reviewed projects?
