Section 17C.130.210 Floor Area Ratio

Floor area ratios (FARs) regulate the amount of use (the intensity) allowed on a site. FARs provide a means to match the potential amount of uses with the desired character of the area and the provision of public services. FARs also work with the height, and setback standards to control the overall bulk of development. There is no maximum FAR in the industrial zones.

[2] The FAR for uses that are not classified as industrial uses within the Industrial Categories of Table 17C.130-1 are the same as the GC Commercial Zone. See chapter 17C.120 SMC for GC zone standards.

[3] See SMC 17C.130.220(B) and (C).

[4] When abutting a single-family and two-family residential zoning, the minimum structure setback from the street lot line is the same as the residential zoning district for the first sixty feet from the boundary of the residential zoning district. See SMC 17C.130.230 for additional standards and exceptions. This does not apply when a zone boundary is within the public right-of-way.

[5] Structure setbacks are measured from the lot line.
