18J.60.060 Canyon Road and 176th Street East Landscaping.

A.    Landscaping provides a pleasing transition between the natural setting and the built environment and between adjacent built areas, especially within an urban setting. It is effective at reducing compatibility problems between adjacent dissimilar or incompatible uses and can assist in stormwater attenuation and air quality maintenance. The presence of mature trees, in particular, has been shown to have positive impacts to property values, social health, and environmental quality. Accordingly, the standards and guidelines set forth in this Section seek to promote the effective use of landscaping throughout the community. These standards are intended to supplement the landscaping standards set forth in PCC 18J.15.040.

1.    Design Objective – Perimeter Buffers and Screening. Provide buffers between residential and non-residential uses and adjacent to arterials to reduce compatibility issues, increase privacy, create a well defined, attractive streetscape, and partially reduce the visual and noise impact of traffic.

a.    Standards.

(1)    Buffering of Uses. Table 18J.15.040-1 is amended for development within the Frederickson Community Plan area to increase buffering of uses as follows:

(a)    New development and redeveloping properties along 176th Street East and Canyon Road East shall provide perimeter buffering along the entire property frontage with these roadways. The buffer shall be interrupted only at points of vehicular and pedestrian access. The buffer shall be located directly behind and adjacent to any exterior sidewalk or pedestrian walkway, except where noted otherwise, and in front of any perimeter fencing, with all required trees located within the required landscape buffer area. The required buffer level shall be as follows:

(i)    A minimum 20 foot wide perimeter buffer shall be provided along the entire frontage at these roadways. The 20 foot wide perimeter buffer shall be landscaped as follows:

(aa)    Trees at the rate of 1 tree per 30 lineal feet of street frontage and shrubs at the rate of 1 shrub per 40 square feet of buffer area. Groundcover shall be planted in sufficient quantities to provide at least 70 percent coverage of the buffer within 3 years of installation. No more than 30 percent of groundcover area shall be lawn along 176th Street East, and no more than 10 percent of groundcover shall be lawn along Canyon Road East.

(bb)    Integration of stormwater biofiltration facilities and sidewalks into the landscape strip is permissible, but shall not reduce the quantity of plant material required.

(cc)    Unimproved right-of-way adjacent to the buffer strip will be planted with groundcover vegetation. All plant material installed in the right-of-way shall meet the requirements set forth in Title 17B and shall be approved by the Pierce County Engineer.

(dd)    Within the Employment Service zone, accent landscaping shall be used at Primary and Gateway intersections to highlight the entrance to the community with plant species that provide special interest and an evergreen backdrop to the intersection corners. See PCC 18J.60.110 for additional standards.

(b)    Within the Employment Center zone, placement of exterior sidewalks and pedestrian walkways is allowed within the required buffer area when a permanent easement has been granted to Pierce County and has been approved by the County Engineer.

(c)    Within the Employment Service (ES) zone, when exterior sidewalks and pedestrian walkways are located within the required buffer area, they shall be located so as to meander within the buffer area. The exterior sidewalk and pedestrian walkway shall be included in calculating the total number of required trees and shrubs. See PCC 18J.60.110.

b.    Guidelines.

(1)    Where possible, perimeter buffers should include the retention of existing mature trees and vegetation. When adding vegetation to create a perimeter buffer, native and drought-tolerant vegetation should be used.

(2)    Use landscaping to create a distinct, uniform street edge along arterial roadways proportionate to the width of the right-of-way and volume of vehicle traffic.

(3)    Use landscaping to screen visually unattractive uses and to buffer residential uses from arterial roadways. The use of bioretention planter boxes with native and drought-tolerant vegetation is preferred.

(4)    Within the Employment Service zone, use large swaths of a single plant species in "drifts" or meandering forms to create a more natural appearance. Scale design and plant palette to complement the character of the community.

(Ord. 2018-68s § 6 (part), 2018; Ord. 2009-98s § 7 (part), 2010; Ord. 2004-58s § 7 (part), 2004; Ord. 2004-52s § 5 (part), 2004; Ord. 2003-94s2 § 3 (part), 2003)

18J.60.080 Building Design and Placement.

The Building Design and Placement standards are intended to guide the placement and design of commercial, civic, industrial, and multi-family structures. These standards apply primarily to new construction. Remodeling and expansion of existing structures shall be required to comply with these standards when the value of the remodel or expansion is 60 percent of the existing building value or greater as calculated by the Building Official in accordance with the "Building Valuation Data" table compiled by the International Code Council and published in the Building Safety Journal, or other national standard.

A.    Non-Residential Design within Residential-Office-Civic (ROC), Moderate-High Density Residential (MHR), Moderate Density Single Family (MSF), Single Family (SF) and Residential Resource (RR) Zones.

1.    Design Objective – Building Design. ROC, MHR, MSF, SF, and RR zoned areas are primarily residential in nature or are immediately adjacent to residential areas. Non-residential buildings located within these areas should be designed to incorporate features such as facades, roof forms, porches, window treatments, and architectural detailing that exemplifies surrounding residential architecture.

a.    Building Entry Standards.

(1)    Entrances shall incorporate one of the following building elements:

(a)    Dormers;

(b)    Porches; or

(c)    Porticos. (See Figure 18J.60-36)

FIGURE 18J.60-36 – Building Entry Details

b.    Building Roof Standards.

(1)    Buildings shall be designed with gable, gambrel, or hip roof forms. (See Figure 18J.60-37)

(2)    Roof planes shall be varied by using gable ends and/or dormers.

(3)    The use of flat, mansard, dome, or butterfly roof forms, is prohibited. (See Figure 18J.60-38)

FIGURE 18J.60-37 – Acceptable Roof Forms

FIGURE 18J.60-38 – Unacceptable Roof Forms

c.    Architectural Detailing Standards. At least one element from each of the following categories shall be included in the design of all new buildings and accessory structures: (See Figures 18J.60-39 through -41)

(1)    Cornice details

(2)    Trim details

(3)    Timber details

(4)    Knee bracing

FIGURE 18J.60-39 – Trim Detail

FIGURE 18J.60-40 – Timber Detailing

FIGURE 18J.60-41 – Knee Bracing

d.    Window Standards. (See Figure 18J.60-42)

(1)    Window patterns shall be characterized by vertical proportions with horizontally oriented rectangular forms prohibited. Windows should emphasize the first floor.

(2)    The area of first story windows on street front elevations shall be at least twice the area of second story windows along the same side of the building.

(3)    One of the following window treatments shall be used:

(a)    Bay windows;

(b)    Stained glass;

(c)    Multi-paned windows, or the appearance of multi-pained windows, in one over one, two over two, or four over four patterns.

(6)    Window trim shall be used.

FIGURE 18J.60-42 – Window Example

e.    Guidelines.

(1)    Encourage architecture that is contextual or harmonious in character to residential uses through the use of color, materials, textures, and landscaping. Development should provide focal points for neighborhoods and enhance the identity of the neighborhood.

(2)    Architecture should be similar to residential structures. The use of standardized "corporate or franchise" style in the design of buildings should be avoided.

B.    Design within the Mixed Use District (MUD), Community Employment (CE), Employment Service (ES), and Employment Center (EC) Zones. Promote design in all building projects within the MUD, CE, and ES zones and non-industrial building projects within the EC zone that helps to provide cohesiveness, consistency, and architectural detailing without restricting architectural creativity. Promote developments which are both auto and pedestrian oriented and create buildings and site designs which appeal to both.

1.    Design Objective – Architectural Concept. Project designs shall provide a cohesive and consistent visual identity for all buildings and accessory structures in a development while responding to functional characteristics of the project.

a.    Standards.

(1)    All new and remodeled buildings within a multi-building complex shall achieve a unity of design through the use of similar architectural elements, such as roof form, exterior building materials, colors, and window style.

(2)    Independent storage buildings, parking structures and other accessory structures shall match the principal building(s) in form, color, and use of materials and detailing.

(3)    Project designs shall use the following materials: concrete, wood-looking materials (no wood sheeting), concrete masonry units (CMU), brick, stucco, metal siding or stone.

(4)    Metal buildings shall only be allowed as a structural system. The building faces of all metal building must be constructed of non-metal materials.

(5)    Corporate styles, architectural gimmicks and fads shall not be permitted.

(6)    Neon outlining and backlit awnings shall not be permitted.

b.    Guidelines.

(1)    Architectural style for new construction and additions is not restricted. Rather, the evaluation of the project should be based on the quality of its design and its relationship to its surroundings and should be unique and reflect the desired character of the community.

(2)    Tenant entrances in a multi-tenant building should be accentuated with similar or complementary design elements such as wall surface materials, window arrangement, color treatment, awnings, and roof forms.

(3)    The use of complementary architectural elements should be considered for transitions to existing buildings on adjacent sites when such buildings conform to the standards of this Chapter.

(4)    Building materials used for site features such as outdoor furniture, lighting, fences and screen walls should be consistent in architectural character with the primary on-site structures. Within the Employment Service zone, exterior architectural lighting, such as wall sconces, pedestrian scale lighting, walkway lighting and bollards shall comply with PCC 18J.60.100.

2.    Design Objective – Architectural Elements and Details. Architectural elements and details shall be used that tend to reduce the perceived size of a building, provide a more human scale and provide for visual and functional continuity with adjacent and neighboring commercial, office/business, civic, and industrial structures which are consistent with design standards and guidelines of this Chapter.

a.    Standards.

(1)    Each building visible from a public roadway shall incorporate elements based on the building's gross square footage that equal or exceed the number of points found in Table 18J.60.080-1.

(2)    Buildings shall be entitled to incorporate any combination of features as provided in Table 18J.60.080-2 in order to meet or exceed the required number of points. For points relating to a building wall-related design feature, the design feature need only be provided along the wall(s) that will be visible to the public roadway in order for the point to be earned.
