18.33.010 Intent.

It is the intent of the mixed use overlay zone to support the goals of the Tumwater comprehensive plan that call for a mixture of transit-oriented and pedestrian-friendly commercial and residential uses in close proximity. The mixed use overlay zone is to be applied as an overlay to specific areas of the city that are located within the underlying mixed use zone district. While the mixed use zone sets forth regulations that allow for a mix of uses on a site, the mixed use overlay zone requires residential and commercial uses to be incorporated into mixed use buildings within developments. The mixed use overlay zone may also serve as a transition between areas likely to develop with higher intensity commercial uses and adjacent residential neighborhoods.

18.33.020 Applicability.

Provisions of this chapter shall apply to all lands, buildings, structures, land uses and activities located within the mixed use overlay zone. Where the requirements imposed by the mixed use overlay zone conflict with the requirements of the underlying zone district, the more restrictive requirements shall be applied.

(Ord. O2006-020, Added, 07/10/2006)

18.33.030 Permitted uses.

Uses permitted in the mixed use overlay zone are those uses that are permitted in the underlying zone district.

(Ord. O2006-020, Added, 07/10/2006)

18.33.040 Accessory uses.

Accessory uses allowed in the mixed use overlay zone are those uses that are set forth in the underlying zone district.

(Ord. O2006-020, Added, 07/10/2006)

18.33.050 Conditional uses.

Conditional uses allowed in the mixed use overlay zone are those uses that are set forth in the underlying zone district.

(Ord. O2006-020, Added, 07/10/2006)

18.33.060 Development standards.

Buildings entirely or partially located more than two hundred feet from the Tyee Drive/Israel Road intersection right-of-way and that contain a commercial and/or residential use shall meet the density standards below and the applicable development standards in TMC 18.20.060(B) through (H) of the underlying mixed use zone district. See Diagram 18.33.060. All other uses shall meet the applicable development standards of TMC 18.20.060(A) through (H).

A.    A minimum of twenty percent of each building shall be commercial and a minimum of twenty percent shall be residential; provided, that no more than fifty thousand square feet gross floor area of a building shall be dedicated to commercial uses. The percentage shall be calculated by determining the percent of square feet devoted to each type of use.

B.    A minimum residential density of fourteen dwelling units per net acre is required.

C.    Residential Density Calculation. The calculation of the density requirement in subsection B of this section is based on the portion of the site containing residential and associated uses (e.g., dwelling units; private community clubs; stormwater detention, treatment and infiltration). The following land is excluded from density calculations:

1.    Land that is required to be dedicated for public use as open space, right-of-way, or land on which development is prohibited by TMC Title 16, Environment, and land that is to be used for private roads. Provided, that portion of open space/park areas that consists of stormwater facilities and that is designed for active and/or passive recreational purposes in accordance with the drainage design and erosion control manual for Tumwater shall not be excluded from density calculations.

2.    Land developed with uses other than residential and associated uses, including but not limited to churches, schools and support facilities (except for stormwater detention, treatment and infiltration facilities).
