18.80.010 Purpose.

Conditional uses are those uses and activities that may be appropriate, desirable, convenient or necessary in the district within which they are allowed, however, due to inherent characteristics of the use, may be injurious to the public health, safety, welfare or interest unless appropriate conditions are established. This chapter describes the criteria for review, authority for action on and minimum conditions applied to certain uses. The requirements of this chapter and the authorization to conduct a conditional use do not supersede, and in fact rely upon, other requirements and standards of this title and other provisions of the DCC.

H.    Signs. All signs used in conjunction with the proposed use shall meet the minimum provisions of DCC Chapter 20.44.

I.    Fire Safety. Provisions shall be made for fire safety. All development activity shall meet the minimum provisions for fire suppression pursuant to DCC Title 15 and as approved by the fire marshal.

The analysis shall include confirmation that the minimum local and state codes and regulations have been met including Chapter 246-374 WAC when applicable. Any additional costs of providing such services shall be the applicant’s expense.

N.    Agricultural Interface. When a use, lot, or parcel is proposed for recreational development and adjoins or is within an agricultural district, all uses, including the storage of materials, shall be set back a minimum of one hundred feet from the property line. Buildings, structures and/or uses may be set back a minimum of sixty feet from the property line, provided the applicant submits an enhanced alternative buffering method for approval by the review authority.

O.    Resource/Critical Areas. It shall be the responsibility of the operator and/or proprietor of any permitted use to provide, analyze and make adequate provisions for the protection of groundwater, wetlands, sensitive wildlife species, resource lands, and other critical areas in accordance with DCC Title 19. Development located within the above areas shall be evaluated for impacts and may be limited in intensity, location and/or prohibited if found to measurably degrade the integrity of the resource or critical areas.

P.    Dimensional Standards. Yard, setback and height regulations for the recreational facility are the same as those in the zoning district in which the project is proposed; except that any buffering required through the site approval process may exceed the fence height restrictions enumerated in DCC Chapter 18.16.

Q.    Air Emissions. Development and operation of recreational facilities shall not disseminate dust, smoke, fumes, or obnoxious odors nor degrade air quality.

R.    Financial Assurance. The review authority may require a bond, cash deposit or other form of financial assurance pursuant to DCC Chapter 14.90.
