Chapter 17C.370 Existing Neighborhood Commercial Structures in Residential Zones

Section 17C.370.010 Purpose

The purpose of this chapter is to allow existing neighborhood commercial structures that once housed a legal neighborhood commercial use to be reused for low impact neighborhood scale and neighborhood serving businesses. The neighborhood commercial structure must have been in existence at the time of the adoption of this chapter. Several examples exist of structures that once housed neighborhood serving businesses, which are now vacant, underutilized or are in disrepair. When meeting the code standards of this chapter, these neighborhood commercial structures are allowed to be re-occupied with neighborhood scaled services.  This chapter is not intended to provide an alternative review process for conversion of public and semi-public facilities under SMC 17C.320.060.
