Title 17A Administration
Chapter 17A.020 Definitions
An individual licensed as a land surveyor pursuant to chapter 18.43 RCW.
Those provisions of this code that relate to:
A scale drawing showing site improvements and landscaping required under chapter 17C.200 SMC the following elements:
Rapid sliding of large masses of rock, soil, or material on steep mountain slopes or from high cliffs.
Sedimentary layer of claystone to fine-grained sandstone in which very finely laminated siltstone is predominant. The fresh rock ranges in color from various shades of gray to almost white, tan and rust. Much of the finer grained layers contain leaf imprints and other plant debris. Because of its generally poorly consolidated state, the Latah rarely outcrops. It erodes rapidly and therefore is usually covered with later deposits or in steeper terrain hidden under the rubble of overlying basaltic rocks.
An inclined slab, set of pads, rails, planks, or graded slope used for launching boats with trailers or by hand.
A procedure for determining if the material in a primary container has escaped into the outside environment or has invaded an interstitial space in a multiple containment system.
A natural or artificial embankment on the bank of a stream for the purpose of keeping floodwaters from inundating adjacent land. Some levees have revetments on their sides.
The number of units of capacity per unit of demand. The level of service standards used on concurrency tests are those standards specified in the adopted City of Spokane comprehensive plan.
Exposed lighting or neon tubes on the sign face. Direct lighting also includes signs whose message or image is created by light projected onto a surface.
The light source is separate from the sign face or cabinet and is directed to shine onto the sign.
The light source is concealed within the sign.
A general site plan that includes:
Establishments primarily engaged in on-site production or assembly of goods by hand manufacturing involving the use of hand tools and small-scale equipment and may have the incidental direct sale to consumers of those goods produced on-site. Typical uses include:
All activity must be conducted totally within the structure with no outdoor storage.
A fish or wildlife species on a state or federal species of concern list. Possible designations could include endangered, threatened and sensitive.
The natural movement of sediment, particularly sand and gravel, along shorelines by wave action in response to prevailing winds or by stream currents.
A street that provides access from individual properties to collector and minor arterials.
The depth of a lot is the horizontal distance between the front lot line and the rear lot line measured in the mean direction of the side lot lines.
The property lines along the edge of a lot or site.
The width of a lot is the horizontal distance between the side lot lines measured on a line intersecting at right angles the line of the lot depth thirty feet from the front lot line.
For the purposes of administration of this code, a low visual impact facility includes a small diameter (three feet or less) antenna or antenna array located on top of an existing pole or on a replacement pole. (See also SMC 17A.020.010, Alternative Tower Structure.)
The lowest floor of the lowest enclosed area (including the basement). An unfinished or flood resistant enclosure, usable solely for parking of vehicles, building access, or storage, in an area other than a basement area, is not considered a building’s lowest floor, provided that such enclosure is not built so as to render the structure in violation of SMC 17E.030.140.
