Planning Commission meeting May 10, 2012
Continue reviewing and provide direction on: 1. Hazardous Liquid Pipelines 2. KZC and KMC amendments that weren’t addressed at last study session on April 26 2. Amendments added after March study session 3. Other
Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Land Use Permit Approval Extensions Electronic Readerboard Signs Nonconforming Density Follow sequence of staff report
Hazardous Liquid Pipelines (provide direction) Consultation zone width? Exemptions? Setbacks for new high consequence land uses and other uses? Setback modifications for reasonable use situations, additions or expansions of existing uses? Setback modification criteria? Maximum setback modification? Notification for public hearing
Consultation zone width? 660’ from center line of corridor (MRSC model ordinance) 150’ from corridor (Redmond) 100’ from pipeline (King County) Exemptions? Minor modifications to existing structures, not involving significant land disturbance on site or changes to offsite improvements (e.g. Residential remodels)
Minimum setback for uses & construction that are not high consequence land uses 50’ from pipeline corridor (model ordinance) 25’ from pipeline corridor, or 30’ minimum from pipeline if dependent on site specific conditions (Redmond) 5’ from pipeline (King Co)
Minimum setback - new high consequence land uses? Local Government discretion (model ordinance) 500’ from pipeline corridor (Redmond) High consequence land uses not defined, but 100’ from pipeline for all structures designed for human occupancy (King Co.) Minimum setback -expansions to existing high consequence land uses? 50’ from pipeline corridor (model ordinance) Determined on a case by case basis through modification criteria, but no less than 25’ from corridor. (Redmond) and no less than 5’ (King Co)
Setback modifications - expansions to existing high consequence land uses? Designed to avoid increasing risk, and where feasible reducing the risk using possible techniques (Redmond) Reasonable use situations (King Co, Redmond) Designed to protect from radiant heat of explosion by berming or other physical barriers or due to existing on site or offsite land features, streets, lot lines, or easement, containment system (king Co)
Extension of land use permit approvals during the economic recession ( provide direction)
Expand application of electronic readerboard signs to all high schools and junior high/middle schools in all single family residential zones
Flexibility to change non-conforming Personal Wireless Service Facilities (PWSF) (see Attachment 16)
Chicken regulations (provide direction) Minimum lot size? Should there be a range of lot sizes and corresponding # of chickens? Roosters? Approval process? Ducks included? Pen, run and waste storage standards?
Codify rear yard setback for 2 nd story garages accessing off open alleys (need direction) Codify Vehicle, Boat and Trailer storage in legally constructed fully enclosed structure (Attachment 4)
2 nd story above garage rear yard setback encroachment 3 options: 1.Codify existing practice which allows same setback as is allowed for the garage. Side access off of alley 0 foot rear yard setback Direct access off of alley 5 foot rear yard setback 2.No encroachment for 2 nd story which would result in: Setback from the garage level located closer to alley, or Garage would be set back further to match setback for 2 nd story. 3.5 foot encroachment for 2nd story – easy to administer, still allows some modulation in cases where garage extends to rear property line.
Codify oversize vehicle or boat storage or parking regulation (see Attachment 4) Allow outright without permit, oversized vehicle/boat to be stored in legally constructed fully enclosed structure in residential zones.
Eliminate FAR stairwell and vaulted area exemptions Eliminate redundancy and clarify equestrian regulations Apply Small Lot and Historic Residence Subdivision regulations throughout City
Liberalize the ability to undertake remodeling without bringing density into conformance Extend time limits for land use permit approvals - Nancy already covered
Apply Electronic Readerboard Signs at all high schools and junior/middle schools – Nancy already covered Consolidate definitions for entertainment, cultural and recreation uses in various zones
Floor Area Ratio (FAR) exemptions (see Attachment 5) Eliminate stairwell and vaulted area exemptions, and define FAR as measuring all levels of a structure, rather than floors.
Equestrian regulations (see Attachments 6, 7, and 8) Changes : ◦ Existing Spec. Reg. 2 criteria would be tied to the existing Process I review to determine the appropriate # of horses on lots less than 35,000 sq. ft. ◦ Maximum # of horses on lots less than 35,000 sq ft is changed from 1 to up to 2, through Process I.
Application of Small Lot Subdivision regulations (see attachment 12 emailed to you) In RS 6.3, RSX, and RS 7.2 zones: ◦ Half the lots in a subdivision could be minimum of 5,000 sq. ft. -.3 FAR or.35 if sloped roof and increased setback (7.5 feet) ◦ The others would be meet all requirements of underlying zone, including lot size. In RSX and RS 8.5 zones: ◦ Half the lots in a subdivision could be minimum of 6,000 sq. ft. -.3 FAR or.35 if sloped roof and increased setback (7.5 feet) ◦ The others would be meet all requirements of underlying zone, including lot size.
Application of Historic Residence Subdivision regulations (see attachment 12 emailed to you) In RSX and RS 7.2 zones: ◦ No more than 2 lots could be a minimum of 5,000 sq. ft., Historic home has some setback, lot coverage and FAR flexibility ◦ The others home would be meet all requirements of underlying zone. In RSX and RS 8.5 zones: ◦ No more than 2 lots could be a minimum of 6,000 sq. ft. In RSX and RS 12.5 zones: ◦ No more than 2 lots could be a minimum of 7,200 sq. ft. In RSX and RS 35 zones: ◦ No more than 2 lots could be a minimum of 7,200 sq. ft. Not in equestrian areas north and northeast of Bridle Trails St. Park
Limitations on maintaining, repairing and remodeling structures with nonconforming density (see Attachment 15) Remodeling: ◦ Eliminate monetary thresholds, tie it back to no change in configuration of exterior walls and no more than 50% of replacement of exterior walls. ◦ Density within remodeled structure must be at least 75% of but no more than original structure
Entertainment, cultural, and recreation areas definition and consolidation. ◦ Amend the permitted uses in various zones to provide consistency in terminology. ◦ Provide new definition of Entertainment, Cultural and or Recreational Facility ◦ Change definition of “Community Facility” to eliminate reference to several uses that are more appropriate in another use listing ◦ Repeals definition for “Athletic instructional Facility” ◦ Eliminate distinction between “for profit” and “not for profit” commercial recreation area and uses.
Allow Single Residential Occupancy (SRO) developments in appropriate zones(provide direction)
New information from Seattle Tilth: Duck manure is much more smelly than chicken manure. Ducks need more maintenance because they require clean water for bathing and drinking, while chickens need water only for drinking. Possible options: Continue regulating ducks as any other fowl rather than proposing that they be regulated the same as chickens. (staff recommendation) Regulate them like chickens.
