PERMITTED USES AND TABLES OF DIMENSIONAL AND DENSITY REQUIREMENTS

Chapter 17.30
PERMITTED LAND USES

Sections:

17.30.010    Permitted land uses and established classification of uses.

17.30.020    Unclassified uses.

17.30.030    Zoning use tables established.

17.30.040    Zoning use table.

17.30.050    Zoning use conditions.

17.30.010 Permitted land uses and established classification of uses.

(1) No building or structure shall be erected, converted, enlarged, reconstructed, or structurally altered, nor shall any building or structure or land be used, designed, or arranged, for any purpose other than is permitted pursuant to this section in the district in which the building or structure or land is located; provided, that such regulations shall not prohibit the continuance of an existing use.

(2) Land Use Classifications Established. This section establishes permitted, conditional, accessory and prohibited uses for all properties within the city limits. All uses in a given zone are one of the following six types:

(a) Permitted Use. Land uses allowed outright within a zone. The specific types of permitted uses are set forth in the zoning code chapters for each zoning district.

(b) Conditional Use. Uses with special characteristics that may not generally be appropriate within a zoning district, but may be permitted subject to review by the hearing examiner to establish conditions to protect public health, safety and welfare. The specific types of conditional uses are set forth in SMC 17.30.040, Zoning use table, and/or 17.30.050, Zoning use conditions.

(c) Administrative Conditional Use. Uses with special characteristics that may not be generally appropriate within a zoning district but may be permitted subject to review by the community development director to establish conditions to protect public health, safety and welfare. The specific types of administrative conditional uses are set forth in SMC 17.30.040, Zoning use table, and/or 17.30.050, Zoning use conditions.

(d) Accessory Use. Uses customarily incidental and subordinate to the principal use and located upon the same lot occupied by the principal use. Accessory uses are determined by the community development director or designee on a case-by-case basis.

(e) Prohibited Use. Any use which is not specifically enumerated or interpreted by the city as allowable in that district. Any use not specifically listed as a permitted, conditional, or accessory use is prohibited, except those uses determined to be unclassified and permitted by the community development director pursuant to SMC 17.30.020. Any prohibited use is illegal and is subject to civil or criminal penalties under Chapter 13.01 SMC.

(f) Unclassified Use. A use which is not a permitted use, a conditional use, or an accessory use, but which is interpreted by the community development director as similar to a permitted, conditionally permitted, or accessory use and not otherwise prohibited, pursuant to SMC 17.30.020. (Ord. 1492 § 2 (Exh. B), 2021; Ord. 1456 § 1, 2018; Ord. 1376 § 6, 2014; Ord. 1294 § 10, 2011).

17.30.020 Unclassified uses.

(1) Unclassified Uses. Upon inquiry by an applicant, an administrative interpretation shall be made by the community development director or designee to determine if a proposed use not specifically listed is either allowed or prohibited, utilizing the criteria in subsection (2) of this section. Should an interpretation be made that a proposed, unlisted use not be allowed in a specific zoning district, the director shall indicate which zones, if any, do permit the use. If the community development director’s interpretation indicates that an unlisted use is not consistent with the permitted, conditional or accessory uses in any district, or if a party does not concur with the permit type applied to a use, appeal may be made pursuant to SMC 17.80.130. Interpretations made by the community development director may be documented, and updates to this title, when consistent with the title format and level of detail, shall incorporate “unclassified use” interpretations upon adoption of a zoning code amendment by the city council.

(2) Criteria for Unclassified Uses. In order to make a determination that an unclassified use is permitted, conditionally permitted, or accessory, the community development director must find that the use is:

(a) In keeping with the purpose and intent of the zone and consistent with the Stanwood Comprehensive Plan policies; and

(b) Similar in nature to, and no more intense than, a specifically listed permitted, conditional or accessory use. (Ord. 1492 § 2 (Exh. B), 2021; Ord. 1294 § 10, 2011).

17.30.030 Zoning use tables established.

(1) The tables in SMC 17.30.040 establish whether a specific use is permitted in a zoning district and whether the use is allowed as a “permitted,” “conditional” or “accessory” use. The zone is located on the horizontal row and the specific use is located on the vertical column of these tables.

(2) Interpretation of Zoning Use Tables.

(a) Legend. The following letters have the following meanings when they appear in the box at the intersection of the column and the row:

(i) P – Permitted use.

(ii) C – Conditional use.

(iii) ADC – Administrative conditional use.

(iv) AC – Accessory use.

(b) Other Applicable Requirements. The above uses are subject to the review procedures and standards in SMC Title 16 and Chapters 17.90 through 17.153 and 17.200 through 17.220 SMC.

(c) Additional Use-Related Conditions. If a number also appears at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is also subject to the additional requirements as listed immediately following the use table in SMC 17.30.050.

(d) Prohibited Uses. If no symbol appears in the box at the intersection of the column and the row, the use is prohibited in that district unless otherwise determined by the community development director pursuant to SMC 17.30.020.

(e) Uses allowed in overlay zones are shown with the following abbreviation:

(i) AEO – Adult entertainment overlay.

(ii) CCO – Civic commons overlay.

(iii) TO – Transit overlay.

(iv) MPO – Master plan overlay.

(v) MXO – Mixed use overlay. (Ord. 1492 § 2 (Exh. B), 2021; Ord. 1282 § 2, 2011; Ord. 1294 § 10, 2011).
