Required setback, height, density, lot coverage, and other requirements are shown in Table B, set out at the end of this chapter. Parking requirements are listed in Chapter 17.16. (Ord. 771 § 1 (Exh. A) (part), 2019: Ord. 722 § 1(Q), 2014: Ord. 97-550 § 2 (part), 1997)

17.12.020 Single-family residential (R-1).

A.    Purpose. The purpose of this district is to provide low to medium density residential use.

B.    Allowed Uses. Uses allowed in this district shall be as shown in Table A. In general, allowed uses shall include single-family and accessory dwellings and uses, home occupations, parks and adult and family day care. Prohibited uses include nightly rentals, duplexes and multifamily uses, and all commercial (except home occupations) and industrial uses.

C.    Density. Density shall be from one to five dwelling units per acre.

D.    Signs. In this district, the following signs shall be permitted:

1.    One name plate or home occupation sign for each dwelling unit, not more than three square feet in area;

2.    One temporary sign advertising the sale, lease or rental of the property on which it is located, of not more than six square feet in area;

3.    No signs in this district shall be illuminated.

E.    Development Standards. New multi-lot single-family residential uses in this district shall meet the following standards:

1.    Visual screening of common trash areas and other common service areas of the development shall be provided through landscape plantings, fencing, or other methods which provide for visual screening and which prevent blowing of trash. Common parking areas and buildings shall be provided with landscaping which breaks up the visual impact of the development from adjacent properties, and which prevents the occurrence of noxious weeds. Such landscaping, when required, must commence immediately upon completion of construction. Landscaping must be maintained to assure long-term viability of plantings; underground or timed water systems may be required for water conservation. Landscape plans shall be submitted as part of the development application process. Such plans shall be reviewed by the planning agency, which shall make recommendation for approval, modification, or denial. Final approval of such landscape plans shall be by the administrator.

2.    Stormwater shall be channeled and disposed of on site by dispersal through a grassy area of sufficient size for the anticipated amount of runoff, or by release into a properly designed dump area with appropriate filtration devices, or through other methods to assure no degradation of water sources or increased levels of runoff onto adjoining property. All stormwater collection, retention and disposal shall be done in compliance with the current Stormwater Management Manual for Eastern Washington.

The administrator shall review the measures proposed to meet the above standards and shall recommend the measures be required as part of the approval or conditional approval of the development and implemented through building or other development permit applications to assure compliance with these standards.

Landscape plans shall be submitted as part of the development application process. Such plans shall be reviewed by the planning agency, which shall make recommendation for approval, modification, or denial. Final approval of such landscape plans shall be by the administrator.

5.    No signs in this district shall be self-illuminated.

E.    Development Standards. Multifamily dwellings and uses in this district shall meet the following standards:

1.    Visual screening of common trash areas and other common service areas of the development shall be provided through landscape plantings, fencing, or other methods which provide for visual screening and which prevent blowing of trash. Common parking areas and buildings shall be provided with landscaping which breaks up the visual impact of the development from adjacent properties, and which prevents the occurrence of noxious weeds. Such landscaping must commence immediately upon completion of construction. Landscaping must be maintained to assure long-term viability of plantings; underground or timed water systems may be required for water conservation. Landscape plans shall be submitted as part of the development application process. Such plans shall be reviewed by the planning agency, which shall make recommendation for approval, modification, or denial. Final approval of such landscape plans shall be by the administrator.

2.    Stormwater shall be channeled and disposed of on site by dispersal through a grassy area of sufficient size for the anticipated amount of runoff, or by release into a properly designed dump area with appropriate filtration devices, or through other methods to assure no degradation of water sources or increased levels of runoff onto adjoining property. All stormwater collection, retention and disposal shall be done in compliance with the current Stormwater Management Manual for Eastern Washington.

The administrator shall review the measures proposed to meet the above standards and shall recommend the measures be required as part of the approval or conditional approval of the development and implemented through a building or other development permit application to assure compliance with these standards.

1.    Visual screening of trash areas and other service areas of the development shall be provided through landscape plantings, fencing, or other methods which provide for visual screening and which prevent blowing of trash. Parking areas and buildings shall be provided with landscaping which breaks up the visual impact of the development from adjacent properties, and which prevents the occurrence of noxious weeds. If parking is to be located in the front yard area of the lot, then landscaped buffers must be included between the street and such parking areas. Such landscaping must commence immediately upon completion of construction. Landscaping must be maintained to assure long-term viability of plantings; underground or timed water systems may be required for water conservation.
