Examples of accessory uses include parking (subject to parking standards in SMC 17E.060.600, Parking Facilities), caretaker's quarters, residential garages, sheds, and gazebos.
  3. Unless specifically stated otherwise in the regulations for the applicable environment, accessory uses which are not water-dependent and not water-related, even if accessory to water-dependent or water-related uses, shall be permitted over water only if the over-water location is necessary for the operation of the water-dependent or water-related use.
