All regulations specified in this title shall be subject to the general provisions, conditions and exceptions contained in this chapter. (Ord. 186, 2003)

17.34.020 Temporary structures.

A. A “temporary structure” means a building or structure to be utilized for a permitted use applicable to a parcel of land, which will remain upon the parcel for a period not to exceed 12 months.

B. A conditional use permit for any such temporary structure shall be required in accordance with procedures set forth in Chapter 17.36 EMC; provided, that any noncomplying aspects of the temporary structure shall only be approved by the city council if it makes the findings as required by EMC 17.36.040. (Ord. 186, 2003)

17.34.030 Home occupations.

A. The city of Etna recognizes the need for its citizens to use their place of residence for some limited activity other than as a residence. However, the city believes that the need to protect the residential integrity of its living areas is of paramount concern. A home occupation permit is the method used to allow and to control activity within the city’s residential districts.

B. In essence, the objective of a home occupation permit is to allow a limited commercial-type activity in a residential area only to the extent that, to all outward appearance, no neighbors or passersby will be aware of the activity. In practice, a home occupation permit gives the permittee the legal right to use his/her residence for a business phone and business mailing address, but not to the extent that excessive foot and automobile traffic are generated.

C. In cases where the city council decides that the proposed use may not conform with the subject guidelines, the city council may, but is not obliged to, issue a temporary approval for a specific time period, not to exceed 12 months.

D. Home occupation permits may be reviewed annually prior to issuance of a business license.

E. A “home occupation use permit,” which allows the operation of a business in a home located in a residential zone, may be issued by the city, without the necessity of public notice, a public hearing, or city council action, upon a finding that the following conditions exist:

1. The proposed business activity involves only the use of telephone and mail at the subject premises;

2. The business does not involve shipping, receiving, repackaging, or the storage of any materials on the subject premises;

3. The business will not employ any persons at the subject premises who do not occupy the same as their residence;

4. No signage will be utilized at the subject site;

5. No customers, clients, patients, salespersons, or other persons will be visiting the subject premises in connection with the business;

6. There will be no other indications of business activity visible to neighbors or to the public, at the subject site, resulting from the use;

7. There will not be any other significant negative impact upon the environment, public safety, or public welfare;

8. Any person who is denied a home occupation use permit by the city pursuant to subsection (A) of this section may apply to the city council for the same;

9. Any home occupation not consistent with these provisions may only be authorized by the approval of a conditional use permit. (Ord. 186, 2003)

17.34.040 Dish-type antennas.

A. No person shall install, either as owner or agent, or employee of the owner, or as an independent contractor for the owner, or otherwise, any dish-type communications antenna, any additions thereto or substitution for such antenna, when such antenna exceeds three feet in diameter, unless a site plan review is approved in accordance with the provisions of this section.

1. In any residential zoned district, such antenna shall be treated as an accessory structure and shall comply with height, setback and lot coverage requirements for the zone in which it is located.

2. Within any nonresidential district, the antenna shall be treated as an accessory structure; provided, that the antenna need not be detached from any existing structure. The placement of such antenna shall not reduce any required parking or landscaping. To the extent possible the antenna shall be placed and screened from view of streets and abutting properties.

3. The restrictions as set forth in subsections (A)(1) and (A)(2) of this section shall not be applicable to a licensee pursuant to this chapter or commercial broadcast station, except to the extent that any such conditions may be imposed by the city as a condition for issuance of such site plan review.

4. The applicant shall submit to the city staff a site plan setting forth the location of the proposed antenna, elevation of the proposed antenna, proposed screening, and such other information as may be required by the city. The city may grant said site plan review if it is determined said application together with any conditions complies with the provisions of this section. (Ord. 186, 2003)

17.34.050 Height limits.

A. Spires, chimneys, machinery, communications towers and water tanks may be constructed to a height limit established for the district in which the structures are located.

B. Public utility distribution and transmission lines, and towers and poles for such lines, are allowed in all districts to greater heights than established for the district in which the structures are located. (Ord. 186, 2003)

17.34.060 Fences, walls, hedges and screen planting.

A. No fence, wall, hedge or screen planting of any kind shall hereafter be constructed or grown to exceed six feet in height within the area encompassed by the rear yard setback or the side yard setback to the front yard setback line, nor shall the same exceed four feet in height within the area encompassed by the front yard setback. In M, C-1, C-2 zones an additional two feet above the six-foot height limit is permitted for the purpose of wire security fencing. Fence height shall normally be measured from the natural ground level, provided, however, an alternate measurement may be authorized by the building official if special circumstances exist relating to the property.

B. Fence height in the front yard setback area may exceed four feet in residential zone districts if the fence does not exceed six feet; is at least 80 percent open, and supporting posts are spaced at least eight feet apart. Fences exceeding the four height which do not meet these standards, and chain link fences over four feet in height can only be authorized by approval of a conditional use permit.

C. Notwithstanding the foregoing, as to any corner lot, no such fence, hedge or screen planting shall exceed three feet in height within 35 feet from the property corner adjacent to the intersecting streets unless the owner of such property obtains a use permit for a greater height by a showing that no hazard exists to vehicular or pedestrian traffic. Such permit may be granted by the city, provided all provisions of this code are otherwise satisfied and the council determines no safety hazard is created by the greater height.

D. Decorative columns, post caps or similar features not more than one foot in height may be added on top of fences or walls which adjoin a street or public walkway, or those fences or walls which the city planner determines to be physically detached from an adjoining residential property. Such features would typically not be less than eight feet apart, and must be consistent with the design and materials of the fence or wall.

E. Fences or walls may exceed six feet in height to allow up to two feet of lattice, or material other than lattice that is typically at least 50 percent open to the passage of light and air when viewed horizontally, to be added to the top of a fence or wall in the rear or side yards, and provided the lattice is determined by the city to be substantially open to the passage of light and air and compatible with the design and materials of the fence or wall. (Ord. 186, 2003)

In approving the site plan, the city or city council shall ascertain that all applicable provisions of this title are complied with;

16. Revisions by the applicant to an approved site plan shall be made pursuant to the initial application procedure set forth in this chapter. (Ord. 186, 2003)

17.34.080 Plan lines.

Whenever an official plan line has been established for any street, required yards shall be measured from such line and in no case shall the provisions of this title be construed as permitting any encroachment upon any official plan line. (Ord. 186, 2003)
