DNS issued for county zoning code amendments
King County has received a determination of non-significance for proposed zoning code amendments, indicating the changes will have no adverse environmental impacts.
Of the five ordinances included in the DNS, four address K.C.C. 21.A.
Appeals of this determination must be made by Dec. 27.
- Allow the use of the site development permit process for residential or industrial development on contiguous lots. Currently only commercial developments can use this process. This would allow regulations to be applied to the whole site, disregarding internal lot lines.
- Allow and establish criteria for modifying or expanding existing non-conforming uses established through prior land-use permits.
- Clarify provisions for the transfer of density credits and add rural-zoned lands to those allowed to transfer density credits.
- Establish standards and permit requirements for the placement of mobile homes.
- Clarify water flow and fire hydrant exemptions for rural development to be consistent with King County Comp Plan policies and the UBC.
