"PD"- PLANNED DEVELOPMENT OVERLAY DISTRICT

Sections:

17.1 0. 510 Purpose: The intent of the Planned Development (PD) Overlay Zoning District is to encourage creative, imaginative new development that would not otherwise be allowed under the strict application of this title. Specifically, it is the purpose of this chapter to:

1. Encourage flexibility in design and development that will result in a more efficient and desirable use of land and greater preservation of open space;

2. Permit flexibility of design, placement of buildings, use of required open spaces, circulation facilities, off-street parking areas, and otherwise better utilize the potential of sites characterized by special features, such as geography, topography, size or shape;

3. Provide for maximum efficiency in layout of streets, utility networks, and other public improvements;

4. Produce an integrated or balanced development of supportive uses that might otherwise be inharmonious or incongruous; and

5. Provide a guide for developers and county officials who review and approve developments meeting the standards and purposes of this chapter.

6. Encourage the use of Low Impact Development (LID) practices to reduce stormwater runoff, and promote the use of credits or incentives to achieve this purpose.

17.1 0. 520 Overlay Zoning District: Planned development, approved in accordance with the procedures of this chapter, shall be an overlay zone and the uses are limited to those which are allowed in the underlying zoning district. Planned developments shall be required where this overlay zone appears on the Allyn Urban Growth Area (UGA) Zoning Map. Planned developments shall be permitted in all zoning districts, with exception of Public Open Space.

The approval of a planned development shall modify and supersede the regulations of the underlying zoning district, except in the case of allowable residential density and uses, and the specific design standards within Mason County Code Title 16, Plats and Subdivisions.

17.1 0. 530 Development Standards: The following standards shall govern the interpretation and administration of this section:

1. Relationship of PD Site to Adjacent Areas. The design of a planned development shall take into account the relationship of the site to the surrounding areas. The perimeter of the PD shall be so designed as to minimize undesirable impact of the PD on adjacent properties and, conversely, to minimize undesirable impact of adjacent land use and development characteristics on the PD.

2. Site Acreage Minimum. The minimum site shall be one acre.

3. Minimum Lot Size. The minimum lot size provisions of other sections of the Zoning

Ordinance are waived in a planned development.

4. Density. In a PD, the density allowed within the underlying zoning district shall determine the dwelling unit density of the PD.

5. Maximum Coverage. Building coverage and development of the site shall not exceed the percentage permitted by the underlying zone.

6. Landscaping Required. All common open space shall be landscaped in accordance with the landscaping plan submitted by the applicant and approved by the Hearing Examiner.

Natural landscape features which are to be preserved, such as existing trees, drainage

Adopted Allyn Zoning 6.12.doc

Page 9

Attacli.:ment A

ways, rock out-croppings, etc., may be included as part of the required setback buffer and landscaping.

7. Setback and Side Yard Requirements: a. Building and parking setbacks along the exterior boundary Line of the PD area shall meet the required setbacks within the underlying zoning district, or, if the abutting properties are undeveloped, a reduction of up to 20 percent of the minimum required setback is allowed. In no event shall such setbacks be less than five feet. b. Setbacks or Side Yards between Buildings. The standard setbacks and yard requirements between buildings may be waived in a PD. Buildings may have common walls and, therefore, built to the property line as in townhouse construction.

Wherever buildings are separated, a minimum distance of ten feet shall be maintained between such buildings.

8. Off-Street Parking. Off-street parking shall be provided in a PD in the same ratios for types of buildings and uses as required for the underlying zoning district, and as described in Chapter 17.10 to 17.17.

9. Commercial developments are subject to Binding Site Plan Review procedures as described in the Mason County Code, Section 17.03.031.

17. 10.540 Open Space Standards: The following standards shall govern the interpretation of this section:

1. Common Open Space. Each planned development shall dedicate not less than twenty percent (20%) of the gross land area for common open space for the use of its residents.

2. Location. a. The area proposed for open space shall be within the PD and within reasonable walking distance of all dwelling units in the PD. b. Where practical, the proposed dedicated open space shall be located adjacent to other established or planned park and recreational areas in adjacent developments, schools, or county parks; provided, that such dedication would increase the overall benefit to the residents of the subject PD and conform to other criteria in the section.

3. Access. a. All dwelling units within the PD must be provided legal access to the proposed area for dedication. Private or common access roads, trees or other landscaping may separate the area proposed for dedication. However, access should not be blocked by major obstacles such as State Routes, arterial roads, or canyons and/or ravines where pedestrian trails cannot be established. b. Areas dedicated for active recreational open space shall have reasonable access from street frontages. Design measures should accomplish the purposes of access and security.

4. Types of Open Space. a. Land dedicated for open space should be usable for (i) greenbelts that serve as a buffer, using native vegetation, or an aesthetic amenity such as boulevard trees; (ii) active or passive recreational activities; or (iii) for protecting environmentally sensitive areas such as wetlands. b. Except as provided in subsection (4)(c) or (d) below, thirty percent of the dedicated open space area shall be suitable for active recreation. The topography, soils, hydrology, and other physical characteristics of the area proposed for active recreation shall be of such quality as to provide a dry, obstacle-free space in a configuration which is suitable for active recreation.

Adopted Allyn Zoning 6.12.doc Page

10

Attach:mentA

c. The percentage of active recreational areas may be increased to as high as fifty percent to meet anticipated recreational needs. d. The percentage of active recreational area may be decreased to as low as zero if it is determined that: (i) inclusion of buffers or environmentally sensitive lands such as wetlands would better meet the open space needs of the residents of the subdivision; or (ii) meeting the standard would require detrimental grading or other disturbance of the natural setting.

5. Structures. Common open space may contain complimentary structures, such as a gazebo or maintenance equipment shed, and improvements as are necessary and appropriate for the benefit and enjoyment of residents of the PD, provided that the building coverage of such building or structure combined with the building coverage of the residential structures shall not exceed the maximum permitted by the underlying zoning district.

6. Implementation. a. The area proposed for open space shall be dedicated in common to the lot owners within the plat or to a lot owner's association. Maintenance and operation of the dedicated open space shall be the responsibility of the lot owners. b.

Adjacent to an established or future parks or school grounds; iii. Is an access to a body of water greater than three acres in size; iv. Is an environmentally sensitive area; v. If the county feels it is in the public interest to accept dedications c. The dedication shall be identified on the PD.

7. Improvements. The removal of septic systems, and abandoned cars, construction debris, and other forms of solid waste within the area proposed for dedication shall be required prior to final approval of the PD.

8. Stormwater Detention Facilities. Stormwater detention ponds may be allowed by the county as part of dedicated open space subject to the following criteria: a. The detention pond shall be constructed so as to drain fully when precipitation is not occurring (i.e., no standing water may be left) unless the pond is designed as an aesthetic amenity. b. The side slope of the detention pond shall not exceed thirty-three percent unless slopes are existing, natural and covered with vegetation. c. If detention facilities are located adjacent to or near a natural, year-round stream or wetland, these systems shall be left in natural or near-natural condition. d. The detention area shall be landscaped in a manner that is both aesthetic and able to withstand the inundation expected. e. Use of a dedicated open space area for stormwater detention shall not be acceptable if the detention area must be fenced or otherwise rendered unsuitable or unavailable for recreation use during dry weather. f. In the case of joint use of open space for detention and recreation, the lot owners or owners' association shall be responsible for maintenance of the detention facilities.

Applicability

17. 12.110 Purpose: The Village Commercial District is a pedestrian and transit oriented mixed use district primarily designed as a location for neighborhood, community wide and tourist retail, office, restaurant, entertainment and service uses including transient accommodations. Long term occupancy residential uses, both owner occupied and rental, are permitted on the second story. The district will provide opportunities for transit routes and stops and to provide shared parking opportunities. Physically the district will retain the pedestrian oriented scale and intensity of use of the rest of the Village core area. Because of its nature the Village Commercial District zone may only be located in the village center.

1. Goals of the district are: a. Promote private development and uses, which complement public streetscape, infrastructure and governmental improvements and uses. b. Foster civic pride in the area and thereby stabilize and improve property values and c. stimulate business investment.

Encourage new uses and services consistent with the downtown, pedestrian oriented, character of the area to achieve a viable and sustainable commercial district. d. Prohibit new uses that are incompatible with the function and purpose of the district and encourage the relocation to other locations in the community, of existing nonconforming uses. e. Encourage efficient land use and investment in the rehabilitation, expansion and use f. of existing structures and in-fill sites through increased zoning densities and parking allowances and flexibility.

Encourage the concept of "mixed" commercial, residential and civic uses in order to, provide affordable housing opportunities, provide a diverse market for retail goods and services, promote alternative modes of transportation, maximize the use of public infrastructure investments and foster a greater sense of "neighborhood" within the district. g. Encourage a sense of "ownership" of the village core within all members of the community as the social and cultural heart of the village by providing opportunities for cultural and celebratory events and development of public spaces and buildings.

Applicability

17. 12.210 Purpose: The 'Tourist Commercial" District is an overlay district limited in size and location as dictated by its function. It may only overlay the "Village Commercial"

District. The purpose of "Tourist Commercial" district is to provide through development and design controls and use limitations a mixed recreation, cultural and commercial district to enhance and promote the economic revitalization of Allyn's historic central business district.

The intent is the creation of an attractive pedestrian oriented commercial and recreation district enjoyed by both locals and visitors. Goals of the district are:

1. Promote private development and uses, which complement and are integrated with public streetscape, open spaces and other governmental improvements and uses.

2. Foster civic pride in the area and thereby stabilize and improve property values and stimulate investment.

3. Encourage new uses and services consistent with the tourist, pedestrian oriented and active outdoor character of the area to achieve a viable and sustainable commercial district.

4. Prohibit new uses that are incompatible with the function and purpose of the district and encourage the relocation, to other locations within the community, of nonconforming uses.

5. Encourage efficient land use and investment in the rehabilitation, expansion and use of existing structures and in-fill sites through flexible development and parking standards.

6. Encourage the concept of pedestrian oriented development to allow easy and safe pedestrian access throughout the district, between properties and businesses and to adjoining districts through thoughtful design of public improvements and private buildings and sites, the development of an attractive and stimulating streetscape and pedestrian and bike trails and paths.

7. Enhance the pedestrian experience and safety as well as make local merchandising more effective by providing a built environment that will slow traffic down while maintaining through traffic and delivery opportunities

8. Promote alternative modes of transportation, maximize the use of public infrastructure investments, better design and foster a greater sense of "neighborhood" within the district.

9. Encourage a sense of "ownership" of the district within all members of the community.

17.14.070 Village Commercial Parking Space Requirements: The village commercial core area is a unique mixed-use area in the center of Allyn. It is the historic commercial center of the village and surrounding area. The Village Commercial and Tourist Commercial overlay districts were developed to recognize the unique historic, cadastral, physical and mixed-use aspects of the core area and to respond to the changing regional business climate. There are limited prime, business frontage locations and an existing in-efficient mix of paved, unpaved and informal parking spaces. The Sub-area Plan calls for a pedestrian oriented village core preserving the historic, cultural and social characteristics while promoting new investment based on local demand and the growing tourist opportunities.

To this end, along with zoning regulations for use and physical development, parking regulations specific to the Village Commercial zoning districts are necessary to achieve the goals of the Sub-Area Plan while recognizing the limitations for development of vehicle parking,. circulation and truck delivery. Planned public parking along with opportunities provided by on street parking not currently available and for cooperative shared and leased parking arrangements between property I business owners are reflected in the regulation of this Section.

17.14.080 Application: The provisions of Section 17.14.070 through 17.14.120 shall apply to all properties within the Village Commercial and Tourist Commercial Overlay districts.
