(d) From Commercial Forest and Agriculture Retention Resource Zones: 50 feet (20 feet for accessory structures).

(10) Rural Neighborhood Conservation Overlay (NCO). The Rural Neighborhood Conservation overlay (NCO) provides for an alternative method for residential development in areas of the Rural Neighborhood Conservation zoning district that are substantially developed and characterized by densities greater than the underlying one dwelling unit per five-acre density. The NCO is intended to apply in areas where additional rural density would be consistent with the developed neighborhood character and uses, while ensuring for the provision of adequate rural infrastructure, compliance with public health and safety requirements, and protection of critical areas.

(a) NCO Applicability. To qualify for an NCO development, the following criteria must be met.

(i) Development Size. The gross acreage of the NCO development must be a minimum of 4.8 acres in size and be a maximum of 11 acres or less in size, and may be comprised of multiple adjacent parcels.

(ii) Built Environment. The surrounding neighborhood character must demonstrate that at least 70 percent of parcels within 500 feet of property boundary are developed (including residential) with an average lot size less than five acres. Where an existing NCO and/or NCC development is located within 500 feet of the property, the built environment of the existing NCO and/or NCC development shall be the condition that existed on the original parent parcel(s) prior to County final approval.

(b) NCO Maximum Residential Density. Residential density for a NCO development is limited to a maximum residential density no greater than the average developed lot density existing within 500 feet of the property, but shall not exceed a gross density of one dwelling unit per 2.4 acres. Developed lots that qualify for calculating the average lot density of the surrounding neighborhood are subject to subsection (10)(a)(ii) of this section, except that developed lots located within LAMIRDs and urban growth areas shall not be included in calculating the average lot density.

(c) NCO Minimum Lot Size. Lots sizes may vary; provided, that no lot shall be less than one acre; and provided further, that the development will not exceed the maximum residential density allowed under subsection (10)(b) of this section.

(d) NCO Design Criteria.

(i) Lot Dimensions and Setbacks. All lots shall meet the provisions of subsections (7), (8), and (9) of this section.

(ii) Road Frontage. All new lots shall have adequate access provided by dedicated public streets or private streets to County standards ensuring that emergency vehicles can reach development on the lots.

(e) NCC Consistency Review. All NCC developments must demonstrate compliance with other applicable regulations and permits, including but not limited to: adequate provisions for water supply and wastewater treatment/disposal, protection of critical areas and shorelines as provided under the Clallam County Critical Areas Code, Chapter 27.12 CCC, and Clallam County Shoreline Master Program (SMP); County subdivision requirements as provided under CCC Title 29, Subdivisions; and environmental review under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), Chapter 43.21C RCW.

(11) Rural Neighborhood Conservation Cluster (NCC). The Rural Neighborhood Conservation cluster (NCC) provides for an alternative method for residential development within the Rural Neighborhood Conservation zoning district. The intent is to encourage creative site designs of subdivisions to encourage keeping larger, contiguous rural lots and open space tracts, retain features of rural character associated with the land to be divided, and reduce the area of rural lands used for roads, utilities, driveways, and other impervious surfaces. The NCC zone is also intended to encourage re-design of areas previously divided into five-acre, grid type development patterns that were generally based on equal division of property, ease of survey, and exemption from state and local subdivision laws rather than on a lot layout designed to retain rural character, reduce fragmentation of fish and wildlife habitat corridors, or support traditional rural lifestyles and rural-based economies.

(a) NCC Objectives. The design of a NCC development requires an inventory and evaluation of on-site and surrounding natural features and land uses. The following design objectives must be considered, but are not intended to be exhaustive or listed in any order of priority. Proposed cluster developments are expected to substantially meet these objectives:

(i) Ensure that rural open spaces predominate over the built environment. For the purposes of this section, “rural open spaces” is meant to include natural landscapes and vegetation (preferably vegetation indigenous to the North Olympic Peninsula), and farmland and forest lands that support rural-based economies.

(ii) Incorporate site features such as topography, vegetation, critical areas, views from public roads and adjacent properties, and pre-existing development that are important to ensuring that the development has no significant adverse impacts.

(iii) Minimize alteration of significant natural features and landscapes.

(iv) Maintain or enhance fish and wildlife habitat corridors and strive to connect to existing corridors on adjacent lands.

(v) Locate development sites away from critical areas and other environmentally sensitive areas, and minimize fragmentation of such areas.

(vi) Retain and protect existing significant or unique natural or cultural features including, but not limited to, mature trees, rare or unique plant communities, historical structures, cultural and archeological sites, etc.

(vii) Reduce the conversion of rural lands to road and utility corridors and decrease impervious surface coverage.

(viii) Promote compatibility among land uses within the development and outside the development, and minimize impacts of noise, traffic and incompatible uses.

(ix) Support retention of larger lots that foster rural lifestyles and rural-based economies.

(x) Protect against conflicts with agriculture, forestry, and mining on adjacent lands designated Agricultural Retention, Commercial Forest, or Mineral Resource.

(xi) Assure visual compatibility of rural development with the surrounding rural area and maintain visual landscapes that are traditionally found in County rural areas and neighborhoods such as natural open spaces, farmlands, and forest lands.

(b) NCC Applicability. To qualify for a NCC development, the following criteria must be met:

(i) Development Size. Eleven acres (may be comprised of several adjacent parcels, whether or not in common ownership).

(ii) Number of Lots. NCC developments must result in the creation of three or more lots, with a minimum of two planned for residential development.

(c) NCC Maximum Residential Density. One dwelling unit per 2.4 acres.

(d) Water Supply. All new lots planned for residential development must be served by an existing or new Group A or Group B public water system.

(e) NCC Rural Large Lot or Permanent Open Space Tract. NCC developments must retain a rural large lot or permanent rural open space tract that meets all of the following minimum criteria:

(i) Size. Retains a minimum of 70 percent of the gross acreage of the NCC development as a large rural lot, set aside under a permanent open space easement, or set aside as permanent open space owned and maintained by a homeowners’ association.

(ii) Design Objectives. The selected location and design (e.g., configuration) of the rural lot or open space tract demonstrates consistency with the spirit and intent with the NCC design objectives under subsection (11)(a) of this section.

(iii) Use. Land uses are limited to:

•    

Rural open spaces pursuant to NCC Objectives, subsection (11)(a)(i) of this section.

•    

Allowed land uses pursuant to subsection (2) of this section; provided, that buildings and associated improvements are limited to no more than 1.5 acres and that the area outside of this building envelope will retain a minimum 70 percent of the gross acreage of the NCC development characterized by rural open spaces pursuant to NCC Objectives, subsection (11)(a)(i) of this section. The building envelope must be shown on the NCC preliminary site plan and the face of the final plat.

(f) NCC Residential Cluster Areas. Planned residential areas located outside of the rural large lot or permanent open space tract designated under subsection (11)(e) of this section must meet the following criteria:

(i) Design Objectives. The selected location and design (e.g., configuration) of residential development areas must demonstrate consistency with the spirit and intent with the NCC design objectives under subsection (11)(a) of this section.

(ii) Minimum Lot Size. Three-quarters acre (0.75 acre).

(iii) Lot Dimensions and Setbacks. All lots shall meet the provisions of subsections (7), (8), and (9) of this section, except where an increased building setback is required pursuant to subsection (11)(f)(v) of this section.

(iv) Cluster Size and Separation of Clusters. No more than eight adjacent lots may be clustered without providing at least 200 feet of separation between clusters.

(v) Building Setbacks and Visual Buffers. Residential cluster areas consisting of three or more lots must provide for a minimum 50-foot-wide building setback and visual buffer between the developed portions of the clustered residential area and a public street, private roads that serve lots outside the NCC development, or outer boundary of the NCC development, except where the street or neighboring lands are located within an urban growth area or designated limited areas of more intensive rural development.

(vi) For purposes of the this subsection (11), “rural open space” is defined as that portion of a subdivision or short subdivision set aside and permanently dedicated for active or passive recreation, commercial timber and agricultural related uses, critical area protection, natural resource or archaeological site preservation, wildlife habitat, and/or visual enjoyment. Such rural open spaces are subject to the following provisions:

(A) A permanent open space reserve area shall be protected using one of the following mechanisms:

•    

A nonbuilding area owned in common by all lots within the subdivision; or

•    

Covered by a protective easement or public or private land trust dedication; or

•    

Preserved through an appropriate permanent protective mechanism, such as a restrictive covenant, approved by the County zoning administrator or Hearing Examiner.

(B) The purpose of the rural open space reserve area as defined herein shall be recorded on the face of the final plat or short plat and shall constitute an agreement between Clallam County and the current/future owner(s) of record that shall run with the land. Said restriction(s) may be amended by mutual agreement between said parties after review for consistency and compliance with the official Clallam County Zoning Ordinance, the Clallam County Subdivision Ordinance, and the Clallam County Comprehensive Plan.

The NCC development proposal shall demonstrate how existing vegetation (e.g., major tree stands), slopes, natural features, plantings, or combination thereof will avoid or significantly mitigate visual impacts in the buffer area. Where plantings are needed, a minimum 10-foot-wide landscaped buffer is required that meets County minimum plant density and standards for visual buffers pursuant to Chapter 33.53 CCC, Landscaping Requirements. Site designs that use native vegetation (especially trees) and topography to provide visual buffers are preferred. The visual buffer may provide for view corridors not exceeding 30 percent of the length of the buffered corridor. The final NCC plat shall indicate responsibility for the retention and maintenance of the visual buffer.

(g) NCC Consistency Review. All NCC developments must demonstrate compliance with other applicable regulations and permits, including but not limited to: adequate provisions for water supply and wastewater treatment/disposal, protection of critical areas and shorelines as provided under the Clallam County Critical Areas Code, Chapter 27.12 CCC, and Clallam County Shoreline Master Program (SMP); County subdivision requirements as provided under CCC Title 29, Subdivisions; and environmental review under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), Chapter 43.21C RCW.

(h) Alternative Site Designs. Alternative site designs to the provisions of subsections (11)(e)(f) of this section may be allowed if, upon review by the review authority, they are determined to meet the NCC design objectives of subsection (11)(a) of this section and provide for a design that provides for substantially equivalent protection given the special or unique features of the NCC development site in relationship to surrounding areas.
