17.15.040 Minimum property development standards – Generally.

All development within a CF community facilities zone shall require a site plan review to be approved by the planning commission. The minimum development standards for any development permitted under a CF zone shall be those of the most comparable adjoining zone. The phrase “adjoining zones” refers to the zones on properties abutting, across the street or alley from or having a common corner with the subject property. If there are two or more adjoining zones with similarly comparable land uses, the development standards of the uses permitted by the most restrictive comparable zone shall be allowed.

A. Parking requirements are those contained in Chapter 17.52 HMC for the corresponding land use.

B. Setbacks, building height, etc., are to be the same requirements as whatever the comparable zone allows.

C. All projects are to be consistent with development standards reviewed and approved by the planning commission. (Ord. 472 § 3, 2010; Ord. 450 § 1, 2007).
