18.26.010 Purpose.

The purpose of the RM—Residential Multi-Unit district is to implement the “high density” designation described in the greater Omak comprehensive plan. This designation is intended for areas within the urban growth area that are either inside or immediately adjacent to the corporate limits. Public water and sewer, transportation systems and pedestrian ways, as well as parking and other facilities are either in place or able to be extended to a development feasibly. High-density residential areas are also located adjacent to commercial zones which provide shopping and other urban services generally needed to support greater numbers of people. These areas typically contain high-density housing in the form of apartments, townhouses, manufactured home parks, and other types of planned developments which provide open space, parking, landscaping and other facilities needed by the residents. Additionally, there will be some lower-intensity, service-oriented business activities (allowed either outright or through a conditional use permit process) that do not generate traffic that would over-burden the circulation system. (Ord. 1286 (part), 1995).
