Open House on Transitional Zone February 1
An open house on the Transitional Zone will be held on Thursday, February 1, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at interim City Hall, 6100 – 219th Street SW, Suite 220, in Mountlake Terrace.
The purpose is to share what has occurred to date and seek further input from the community. There will be display boards, a short presentation including visuals of building height and lot coverage, proposed design standards and a Question & Answer opportunity.
"Transitional Uses" refers to townhome and parking lot development that is currently permitted in a narrow band of lots abutting the Town Center zoning district. The purpose of the transitional uses area is to provide a buffer between the more intense development permitted in the Town Center district and the surrounding single-family residences.
Due to a lack of clear standards for townhomes in the transitional uses area, efforts have been underway since fall 2017, to craft clear regulations and standards for such development. A draft code has been prepared for consideration. A community forum was held December 14, 2017 with strong community attendance and participation.
