Temporary Use ordinance

AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTER 18.57 Downtown Districts

Ground Floor residential uses

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

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.
