12.62.010 Purpose.

Subarea zoning regulations implement subarea-specific policies in the Imagine Bothell… Comprehensive Plan. The subarea zoning regulations in this chapter apply specifically to land within the Westhill Subarea. Subarea zoning regulations are in addition to city-wide zoning regulations or, where more restrictive, take the place of city-wide zoning regulations. (Ord. 2053 § 3 (Exh. C), 2010; Ord. 1946 § 2, 2005).

12.62.020 R 2,800, OP, CB zoning along SR-522.

Development in this area shall incorporate the following features, where practical:

A.    Driveways shall be a minimum of 300 feet apart and/or shared between adjacent properties in order to minimize congestion caused by vehicles entering or exiting traffic;

B.    Internal vehicle access shall be provided from property to property in such a manner as to allow a smooth flow of traffic across consecutive adjoining properties;

C.    Where possible, parking shall be located alongside or behind buildings, but not between buildings and SR-522; and

D.    Type III landscaping and other techniques such as berming shall be utilized along the street frontage to mitigate the visual impacts of development along SR-522. (Ord. 2053 § 3 (Exh. C), 2010; Ord. 1946 § 2, 2005).

12.62.030 Proposed AG agricultural zoning along 88th Avenue NE.

The purposes of the AG agricultural zone are to preserve and protect irreplaceable and limited supplies of farmland well suited to agricultural uses by their location, geological formation and chemical and organic composition, and to encourage environmentally sound agricultural production. These purposes are accomplished by:

A.    Establishing a 35-acre minimum lot size to retain parcels sized for efficient farming;

B.    Allowing for uses related to agricultural production and limiting nonagricultural uses to those compatible with farming, or requiring close proximity for the support of agriculture; and

C.    Allowing for residential development primarily to house farm owners, on-site agricultural employees and their respective families. (Ord. 2053 § 3 (Exh. C), 2010).
