17.04.010 Purpose.

For any particular district, there are some uses that are consistent with the intent and character of the zoning district; some uses that may be consistent if careful site design neutralizes the adverse characteristics of the use or site; and other land uses that, regardless of site design, are not consistent with the intent or character of the district.  The purpose of this chapter is to establish the degree to which each land use is permitted in each district and establish the appropriate level of review for each land use in terms of the specific standards and requirements of each district.  (Ord. 956(part), 1993)

17.04.020 Land use classification system.

Land uses within each zoning district shall be classified into four principal categories as follows:

A.  Class (1).  Class (1) uses not requiring Class (2) review are permitted; provided, that district standards are met.  The building official shall use the procedures in Chapter 17.13 to review Class (1) uses and associated site improvements for compliance with the provisions and standards of the zoning district in which they are located.  Class (1) uses require Class (2) review when:

1.  All or part of the development, except for agricultural buildings, single-family dwellings, and duplexes, is in the flood plain overlay district; or

2.  The proposed use includes hazardous materials; or

3.  The applicant requires adjustments of one or more of the specific development standards pursuant to Section 17.10.020.

B.  Class (2).  Class (2) uses are generally permitted in the district.  However, the compatibility between a Class (2) use and the surrounding environment cannot be determined in advance and occasionally a Class (2) use may be incompatible at a particular location.  Therefore, Class (2) review by the planning commission is required in order to promote compatibility with the intent and character of the district and the objectives and development criteria of the Wapato urban area comprehensive plan.  The planning commission may approve, deny, or impose conditions on the proposed use and site improvements.  The procedures in Chapter 17.14 shall be used to review and evaluate Class (2) uses.

C.  Class (3).  Class (3) uses are generally not permitted in a particular district, but may be allowed after Class (3) review and public hearing.  The uses may be approved, denied, or conditions may be imposed on the proposed use to promote compatibility with the intent and character of the district and the objectives and development criteria of the Wapato urban area comprehensive plan.

D.  Uses Not Permitted.  Uses listed in Table 4-1 and not classified (1), (2) or (3) in a particular district are not permitted in that district.

When two or more uses are proposed in the same project, the entire project shall be subject to the level of review required by the highest classified use:  Class (3) use being higher than Class (2) use; and Class (2) use being higher than Class (1) use.  (Ord. 1183 §2(part), 2008:  Ord. 956(part), 1993)

17.04.030 Table of permitted land uses.

Table 4-1 titled “Permitted Land Uses” is incorporated as part of this section.  Each permitted land use listed in Table 4-1 is designated a Class (1), (2) or (3) use for a particular zoning district.  In addition, some Class (1) uses may require Class (2) review in accordance with Section 17.04.020(A).  All permitted land uses and associated site improvements are subject to the design standards and review procedures of this title.

(Ord. 1224 §2(Exh. 1 §3), 2010; Ord. 1183 §2(part), 2008; Ord. 1162 §2, 2007; Ord. 1016 §1, 1996; Ord. 956(part), 1993)

17.04.040 Unclassified uses.

Any use not listed in Table 4-1 is an unclassified use and shall be permitted only in those districts so designated by the city council.  Any unclassified use permitted in a particular zoning district shall be allowed only as a Class (2) or (3) use.  The city council shall follow the provisions of Chapter 17.22 when determining which zoning districts are appropriate for a particular unclassified use.  (Ord. 956(part), 1993)

17.04.050 Accessory uses.

A.  Generally.  An accessory use is a use customarily incidental and subordinate to the principal use of a structure or site.  Accessory uses are permitted upon compliance with the terms and provisions of this title.  The land use classification and review requirements of an accessory use shall be the same as that of the principal use(s), unless otherwise specified.

B.  On-Site Hazardous Waste Treatment and Storage.  On-site hazardous waste treatment and storage is permitted as an accessory use in the SR, B-1, B-2, SCC, LCC, CBD, CBDS, M-1 and M-2 districts, subject to the state siting criteria in the Washington Administrative Code adopted pursuant to the requirements of Chapter 70.105 RCW, including all future amendments.  (Ord. 1183 §2(part), 2008:  Ord. 956(part), 1993)

Caretaker dwellings or shelters for the occupancy of guards, watchmen, or caretakers are permitted as accessory uses in the CBDS, M-1 and M-2 districts.  Caretaker dwellings or shelters are also permitted in the B-2, SCC, LCC, and CBD districts when the dwelling is located within the structure used for the principal use.  (Ord. 1183 §2(part), 2008:  Ord. 956(part), 1993)

17.04.080 Swimming pools.

Swimming pools are permitted as an accessory use to:  dwelling, hotels/motels, boarding houses, retirement homes, and other residential uses; schools and other recreational facilities when all of the following provisions are met:

3.  From an Easement.  The swimming pool, apron, and pump house may extend up to, but shall not encroach upon, an easement.

B.  Fencing.  The area around the pool is enclosed by a protective fence not less than four feet in height.  (Ord. 956(part), 1993)

17.04.090 Home occupation.

A.  Purpose.  The conduct of business within a dwelling may be permitted in the residential districts under the provisions of this section.  It is the intent of this section to:

1.  Ensure the compatibility of home occupations with other uses permitted in the residential districts; and

2.  Maintain and preserve the character of residential districts; and

3.  Promote the efficient use of public services and facilities by assuring these services are provided to the residential population for which they were planned and constructed, rather than commercial uses.

B.  Table of Home Occupations.  Table 4-2 titled “Permitted Home Occupations” is incorporated as a part of this section.  Each permitted home occupation listed in Table 4-2 is designated as a Class (1), (2) or (3) use for a particular residential zoning district.  All permitted home occupations are subject to the standards of this title, including the specific conditions of subsection C of this section and the applicable review procedures found in this title.  Specific uses not permitted as home occupations are listed in subsection G of this section.

C.  Necessary Conditions.  Home occupations are permitted as an accessory use to the residential use of the dwelling only when all of the following conditions are met:

1.  The home occupation is conducted inside a dwelling which is the primary residence of the principal practitioner.

2.  The home occupation is incidental and subordinate to the principal use of the structure as a dwelling.

3.  There are no external alterations to the building which change its character from a dwelling.

4.  The business is conducted in a manner that will not alter the normal residential character of the premises by the use of color, materials, lighting and signs, or the emission of noise, vibration, dust, glare, heat, smoke, or odors.

5.  The home occupation does not generate greater traffic volumes than would normally be expected in the residential neighborhood.

6.  There is no outside storage or display of any kind related to the home occupation.

7.  The home occupation does not require the use of electrical or mechanical equipment that would change the fire rating of the structure.

8.  The home occupation does not increase water or sewer use so that the combined total use for the dwelling and home occupation is significantly more than the average for residences in the neighborhood.

9.  A business license is purchased when and where required.

10.  The home occupation is conducted only by immediate family members residing in the dwelling.

11.  All stock kept for sale on the premises is produced on site by hand without the use of automated or production line equipment.

In granting approval for a home occupation, the reviewing official may attach additional conditions to ensure the home occupation will be in harmony with, and not detrimental to, the character of the residential neighborhood.  Any home occupation authorized under the provisions of this title shall be open to inspection and review at all reasonable times by the building and enforcement official for purposes of verifying compliance with the conditions of approval and other provisions of this title.

D.  Nameplates.  Only one nameplate shall be allowed.  It may display the name of the occupant and/or name of the home occupation (e.g., John Jones, Accountant).  The nameplate shall be attached to the dwelling but shall not exceed two square feet in area or be illuminated.

E.  Application, Fee, and Review Period.  Application for a home occupation shall be made in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 17.11 and shall be accompanied by the appropriate filing fee.

F.  Unclassified Home Occupations--Review by the City Council.  Home occupations not listed in Table 4-2 and subsection G of this section shall be reviewed by the city council in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 17.22.  Provided, any unclassified home occupation permitted after review and decision by the city council in a particular district shall be allowed only as a Class (2) or (3) use.

G.  Home Occupations Not Permitted.  The following uses, by the nature of their operation or investment, have a pronounced tendency, once started, to increase beyond the limits permitted for home occupations and impair the use and value of a residentially zoned area for residential purposes.  Therefore, the uses listed below shall not be permitted as home occupations (this list, however, is not exclusive and other activities that are deemed to be unacceptable for home occupations may also not be permitted):

1.  Auto repair, wrecking, or dismantling;

2.  Antique shop or gift shop;

3.  Kennel;

4.  Veterinary clinic or hospital;

5.  Painting of vehicles, trailers or boats;

6.  Large appliance repair including stoves, refrigerators, washers and dryers;

7.  Upholstering;

8.  Machine and sheet metal shops;

9.  Martial arts school.

H.  Denial of Application for a Home Occupation.  An application for a home occupation shall be denied if the reviewing official finds that either the application or the record fail to establish compliance with the provisions of this chapter.  When any application is denied, the reviewing officer shall state the specific provisions and sections of this title on which the denial is based.

17.04.110 Temporary hardship unit permits.

In addition to the maximum number of dwelling units permitted on a lot, a manufactured home may be permitted as a temporary use in all zoning districts.  Applications for a temporary hardship unit permit shall be subject to Class (2) review and shall only be issued when all of the following conditions are met:

F.  No rent, fee, payment or charge in lieu thereof may be made between the recipient and providers of special care for use of the temporary hardship unit.

Only one temporary hardship unit shall be permitted on a parcel.

Temporary hardship unit permits shall be subject to semi-annual review and annual renewal, at which time the building official/city council shall review and certify the justification for continuation of the use, or terminate the permit.  The temporary hardship unit shall be removed within ninety days from the termination of the use or revocation of the permit.  The responsibility for applying for and obtaining an extension of the temporary use permit shall be solely that of the permit holder.  (Ord. 1224 §2(Exh. 1 §4), 2010:  Ord. 1183 §2(part), 2008:  Ord. 956(part), 1993)

17.04.120 Placement of manufactured homes not falling under Section 17.04.125, Placement of new manufactured homes.

A.  Purpose.  The provisions established herein are intended to assure that the siting of manufactured homes not considered “new manufactured homes” under the definition found in Section 17.04.125 is harmonious with the surrounding residential uses and preserves the general character and integrity of the neighborhood.  This section does not regulate siting of new manufactured homes.

B.  Table of Review Requirements for Manufactured Homes.  Table 4-3 titled “Review Requirements for Manufactured Homes” is incorporated as a part of this section.  The table indicates in which residential districts manufactured homes may be permitted as a Class (1), (2) or (3) use.  All manufactured homes on individual lots are subject to the specific conditions of subsection C of this section and the applicable review procedures of Chapters 17.13, 17.14 and 17.15.

C.  Site Standards.  All manufactured homes shall be installed in compliance with applicable city and county codes.  In addition manufactured homes installed in the residential districts, not in manufactured home parks, may be required to meet the following siting standards:

1.  Roof Slope.  Roof slope shall be not less than a two-foot rise for each twelve feet of horizontal run.

2.  Roofing Materials.  Roofing materials shall be compatible in appearance with surrounding site-built homes.

3.  Siding Materials.  Siding materials shall be wood, masonite, or other material compatible with surrounding site-built homes.

D.  Replacement of a Nonconforming Manufactured Home on an Individual Lot with Another Manufactured Home.  Class (1) review shall be used to replace a nonconforming mobile home with another mobile home that is newer and the same size or larger.  The modification provisions of Section 17.17.050 shall be used to replace a nonconforming modular home with another manufactured home that is older or smaller.

E.  Replacement of an Existing or Approved Manufactured Home on an Individual Lot with Another Manufactured Home.  Class (1) review shall be used to replace an existing or approved manufactured home with another manufactured home that is newer and the same size or larger.  The modification provisions of Section 17.17.050 shall be used to replace a manufactured home with another manufactured home that is older or smaller.

**    This chart does not include “new manufactured homes” as defined in Section 17.04.125.

(Ord. 1224 §2(Exh. 1 §§5, 6), 2010:  Ord. 1183 §2(part), 2008:  Ord. 956(part), 1993)

17.04.125 Placement of new manufactured homes.

A.  Purpose.  It is the purpose of this section to ensure that there is no discrimination in the siting of new manufactured homes in residential areas of the city.  The provisions established herein are intended to ensure that there is no such discrimination, and that the new manufactured homes do not negatively impact the residential areas in which such new manufactured homes are to be located.

B.  Definition of New Manufactured Home.  A “new manufactured home” means any manufactured home required to be titled under RCW Title 46 which has not been previously titled to a retail purchaser, and is not a “used mobile home” as defined in RCW 82.45.032(2).

C.  Siting Is Regulated As If the New Manufactured Home Is a Site-Built Home or Factory-Built Modular Home.  New manufactured homes shall be allowed in all places where single-family dwellings are allowed, and subject to the same class reviews.  In addition to the appropriate class review, the city shall determine if the site is adequate for a manufactured home by taking into account the following exceptions and requirements for siting:

1.  That the manufactured home is a new manufactured home.

2.  That the manufactured home is to be set upon a permanent foundation, as specified by the manufacturer, and that the space from the bottom of the home to the ground be enclosed by concrete or an approved concrete product which can be either load-bearing or decorative.

3.  That the manufactured home complies with all local design standards applicable to all other homes within the neighborhood in which the manufactured home is to be located.

4.  That the manufactured home is thermally equivalent to the State Energy Code.

5.  That the manufactured home meets all other requirements for a designated manufactured home as defined in RCW 35.63.160.  (Ord. 1224 §2(Exh. 1 §7), 2010:  Ord. 1183 §3(part), 2008)
