Sections:

17.56.010    Purpose and application.

17.56.020    Allowed uses.

17.56.030    Property development standards.

17.56.040    Procedure—Subdivisions—Waiver of use permit requirement when property subject to subdivision map application.

17.56.010 Purpose and application.

The S zone has two purposes:

A. In combination with any zone, to require approval of an administrative use permit before any use may be established. The use permit requirement is intended to assure compatibility of the use with its surroundings or conformance with the general plan, or to determine if a proposed development solves problems such as noise exposure, flood hazard, airport hazard, or slope instability which are particularly severe on a given site. Such development review may also be used to protect areas of scenic or ecological sensitivity, wildlife habitat, or wildland fire hazard.

The ordinance adopting the S zone will specify the considerations to be addressed, and the ordinance number will be incorporated in the official zone map designation;

B. In combination with any other zone, to require a larger minimum parcel size than required by the underlying zone. In such cases it will be designated on the zone map as, for example, R-1-S-3, which indicates a minimum parcel size of three acres. (Ord. 1265 § 2 Ex. A, 1994; Ord. 941 § 1 (part), 1982: prior code § 9203.17(A))

17.56.020 Allowed uses.

Subject to approval of an administrative use permit, any allowed or conditionally allowed use in the underlying zone may be established. (Ord. 1265 § 2 Ex. A, 1994; Ord. 941 § 1 (part), 1982: prior code § 9203.17(B))

17.56.030 Property development standards.

As provided in Sections 17.58.020 through 17.58.080, the planning commission may establish conditions relating to improvements, building location, access, and so on, which are more restrictive than provided in the underlying zone, in order to fulfill the intent of these regulations. (Ord. 1265 § 2 Ex. A, 1994; Ord. 941 § 1 (part), 1982: prior code § 9203.17(C))

17.56.040 Procedure—Subdivisions—Waiver of use permit requirement when property subject to subdivision map application.

The director may waive the requirement for a use permit when property proposed for development is the subject of a subdivision map application. (Ord. 1265 § 2 Ex. A, 1994; Ord. 941 § 1 (part), 1982: prior code § 9203.17(D))
