10.10.010 Purpose.

A district use chart is established and contained herein as a tool for the purpose of determining the specific uses allowed in each use district. No use shall be allowed in a zoning district that is not listed in the use chart as either a permitted, accessory or conditional use, unless the director determines that an unlisted use is similar to one that is already enumerated in the use chart and may therefore be allowed, subject to the requirements associated with that use and all other applicable provisions of the WCC, including but not limited to the zoning district regulations, parking requirements, and landscaping. (Ord. 2010-03 § 1 (Exh. A); Ord. 2007-34 § 2 (Exh. A))

2 Mobile homes are permitted only within a mobile/manufactured home park.

3 Storage containers in the NWBD/SWBD must be 100 percent screened from the public right-of-way.

4 Marijuana production is permitted indoors only; no outdoor production is allowed.

5 Code reviser’s note: Ordinance 2009-08 added transient rentals as a permitted residential use. Ordinance 2014-32 inadvertently omitted transient rentals from the district use chart. The use has been restored here per the city’s intent.

6 Townhouses and courtyard housing in this zone are limited to no more than four attached units in one structure.

7 Storage of building materials or equipment rental supplies in the NWBD north of the Wenatchee River shall be located to the rear of buildings, fully screened from view of any public right-of-way, and not located within 200 feet from the edge of the public right-of-way.

8 Mini-storage and all associated uses in the NWBD north of the Wenatchee River shall be located within a completely enclosed building.

9 Adaptive reuse of drive-in or drive-through facilities in existence as of May 9, 2019.

10 Only such uses in existence as of November 7, 2019, are considered a permitted use.

11 Subject use is not allowed on the ground level designated pedestrian-oriented streets (per Figure C.1.d. in the Residential Design Guidelines).

12 For street corner sites, the townhouses and multifamily uses are allowed on the ground level provided permitted nonresidential uses and/or live-work dwellings occupy the portion of the building within 50 feet of the corner property line (see Figure 10.10.020 as an example). Exception: The subject use is allowed on street corner ground-level building frontages or other street frontages provided the development integrates permitted nonresidential uses and/or live-work dwellings within buildings along at least 75 feet of either street’s building frontage or, in the case of a single frontage, within that specific frontage.
