JAMESTOWN S’KLALLAM TRIBE MAT CLINIC DESIGN REVIEW
FILE NO. CDR20-001
This project is a proposal to develop the northwest 3.3 acres of the 18.19-acre subject parcel. The project includes the construction of a 16,720 SF medical clinic that will be made up of medication assisted treatment program which offers FDA approved dosing, primary care services, consulting services, dental health services and childcare services while clients are seen.
THE PUBLIC MEETING SCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER 19, 2019 AND THE PUBLIC HEARING SCHEDULED FOR DECEMBER 9, 2019 WERE CANCELLED.
A proposed major preliminary subdivision application to develop 33 single family residential lots on approximately 9.14 acres of property currently zoned “Single Family Residence” (R 4-8). The project would be developed in four phases. Phase B-1: 10 lots, Phase B-2: 11 lots, Phase B-3: 4 lots, and Phase B-4: 8 lots.
The City advertised that it would consider amendments to the Comprehensive Land Use Plan submitted by the public by the end of business on May 31, 2021. The City received three requests from members of the public to amend the City’s Comprehensive Plan, one amendment request from City staff and one amendment request from the City Council.
A proposed temporary use regulation that would provide a mechanism by which the city may permit a use to locate within the city on an interim basis without requiring full compliance with the development standards of the land use district or by which the city may permit seasonal or transient uses not otherwise permitted.
Amendments to 18.57.010 Purpose and 18.57.020 Downtown zones allowed and prohibited uses. Finding ways to provide a wider range of housing opportunities is currently a high priority in the City, including the provision of higher density multi-family residential located close to the city center. The City’s downtown districts provide zoning districts that are intended to create a lively and diverse downtown that is oriented to both nearby neighborhoods and the larger community, with a mixture of uses, including retail, services, restaurants, institutions, and higher density residential. There are opportunities for residential use on the ground floor in the Downtown Core (DC) zone that are currently prohibited except for the rear 40 percent of the ground floor. The Downtown Core is the only downtown zoning district with this limitation mainly largely due to its proximity to the centralized commercial and business activities along the Washington Street corridor. As such, there could be lost opportunities for multi-family infill development in the DC zoning district.
AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTER 18.62 MANUFACTURED HOME STANDARDS
PROHIBITING PRIVATE STREETS
Amendments to 18.62.040 Manufactured home park uses and standards prohibiting private streets. On January 11, 2021 the City Council adopted new street standards that will affect the development of streets in new manufactured home parks. The Council’s directive prohibiting private streets in future residential developments requires staff to amend the manufactured home park regulations to reflect the Council’s policy which is consistent with the Transportation Chapter of the City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTER 18.62 MANUFACTURED HOME STANDARDS
Proposed amendments to SMC 18.62.030 dealing with development standards for manufactured homes, including road standards, and size of manufactured homes placed outside of manufactured home parks, and to ensure constancy with SB 6595, SSB 5524, and EHB 1227.
AMENDMENTS TO TITLE 15 SMC; BUILDINGS AND CONSTRUCTION
Revisions to Title 15 of the Sequim Municipal Code (SMC), including adoption of the International Building Code (IBC), 2018 Edition, including Appendix E, as published by the International Code Council (ICC), with all Washington State amendments and exceptions as contained in Chapter 51-50 Washington Administrative Code (WAC), and as modified by the additions and amendments specified in the proposed SMC Section 15.04.030.
PROPOSED CITY STREET STANDARDS AND AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTER 12.02 SMC; STREETS
Proposed revised City street standards and the implementing regulations for Chapter 12.02 of the Sequim Municipal Code. The purpose of this chapter is to provide for uniform engineering standards for street construction, repair, and improvement within the city of Sequim. These standards are in addition to subdivision street standards such as described in SMC 17.32 and elsewhere in code.
PROPOSED SEQUIM MUNICIPAL CODE CHAPTER 18.82 - CLEARING & GRADING
FILE NO. ZC2020-001
The purpose of this proposed local regulation is to safeguard persons, protect property, and prevent damage to the environment within the City of Sequim. This ordinance will also promote the public welfare by guiding, regulating, and controlling the design, construction, use, and maintenance of any development or other activity that disturbs or breaks the topsoil, results in the movement of earth or impacts drainage flow on land in City of Sequim.
PROPOSED REVISIONS TO SEQUIM MUNICIPAL CODE CHAPTER 18.66
ACCESSORY DWELLING UNITS
To encourage development of ADUs the City is proposing to amend its current ADU regulations to allow the ADU to be increased in size from 700 sq. ft. to 850 sq. ft., and remove the limitation on the number of bedrooms and occupants who can occupy the ADU. Other amendments relate to ensuring the ADU is architecturally compatible with the primary residential structure, prohibiting mobile and manufactured homes to serve as ADUs, and to ensure ADUs are not used as short-term rentals.
THE PUBLIC HEARINGS SCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER 19TH AND 25TH, 2019 WERE CANCELLED. (A HEARING WAS PREVIOUSLY CONTINUED FROM NOVEMBER 5, 2019 TO NOVEMBER 19, 2019.)
These regulations are intended to provide property owners and developers with alternative bulk and dimensional standards that may better reflect the existing development pattern than would the City’s current residential development standards while maintaining consistency with current land use regulations.
The City of Sequim is in the process of updating of its SMP. The City last updated its SMP in November 2013, and Washington state law requires jurisdictions to review and update their SMPs every eight years in accordance with the SMA and its current guidelines and legislative rules to attain state approval.
