21A.32.010: GENERAL PROVISIONS:linklink


A. Statement Of Intent: Certain geographic areas of the city contain land uses or platting patterns that do not fit traditional zoning classifications (e.g., residential, commercial, industrial) or uniform bulk regulations. These areas currently contain special land uses (e.g., airports or medical centers) which have a unique character, or contain mixed land uses which are difficult to regulate using uniform bulk and density standards. Because these areas have unique land uses, platting patterns and resources, special districts are needed to respond to these conditions. These special purpose districts are further intended to maintain the integrity of these areas, allow for greater flexibility in site design, and achieve the specialized goals for these areas.


B. Site Plan Review: In certain districts, permitted uses and conditional uses have the potential for adverse impacts if located and laid out without careful planning. Such impacts may interfere with the use and enjoyment of adjacent property and uses. Site plan review is a process designed to address such adverse impacts and minimize them where possible. Site plan review of development proposals is required in the RP, BP, FP, PL, PL-2, I, UI, MH and MU districts. All uses in these districts shall be subject to the site plan review regulations contained in chapter 21A.58 of this title.


C. Permitted Uses: The uses specified as permitted uses in section 21A.33.070, "Table Of Permitted And Conditional Uses For Special Purpose Districts", of this title, are permitted provided that they comply with all requirements of this chapter, the general standards set forth in part IV of this title and all other applicable requirements of this title.

E. Accessory Uses, Buildings And Structures: Accessory uses, buildings and structures are allowed in special purpose districts subject to the requirements of this chapter, section 21A.36.020, table 21A.36.020B and chapter 21A.40 of this title.


F. Environmental Performance Standards: All uses shall conform to the environmental performance standards established in section 21A.36.180 of this title.
