Outdoor Storage of Pool Chemicals

I am doing research on hazardous materials and writing of ordinances.  I find that most cities do not permit pool construction/electrical supply wholesale businesses selling pool chemicals on the side to store hundreds of gallons of chlorine bleach and muriatic acid outdoors year round and unprotected from the elements on open parking lots.  Nor do they allow such storage when private homes sit next door and are not in a commercial zone.  Why are oxidizers and corrosives supposed to be stored inside a building in an industrial zone and not  sitting on pallets next to a home and private residential property?
