Property owners may use and develop their real property within such commercial and industrial areas for the same commercial and industrial uses as prior to the designation unless the local governmental authority has changed the zoning as to such uses, or does not control land use by zoning and the land use is discontinued which created the unzoned commercial and industrial areas as defined by the Commonwealth Transportation Board. Local governmental bodies may encourage the use of such commercial and industrial areas in the manner that will help to stimulate and encourage tourism in the region and will promote the economic well-being of the region.
