Introduction. The findings relative to the hearing process for this application may be summarized as follows: (1) The Hearing Examiner conducted an open record public hearing relative to this application on December 14, 2017. (2) The thorough staff report that was presented by Associate Planner Trevor Martin recommended approval of this application for a rezone to the R-3 zoning district and a Class (3) residential mini -storage use subject to conditions. (3) The applicant Gail Buchanan and the applicant's representative for this Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 1 5 6 proposal, Bill Hordan of Hordan Planning Services, both testified in favor of the application by explaining why a rezone to the R-3 zone would make the zoning consistent with the Comprehensive Plan "Mixed Residential" designation, why a residential mini -storage use is being proposed for the site, and why that type of 12 - foot -high self-contained facility would be more compatible with the area than some of the 35 -foot -high residential uses that could be developed in the R-1 zone or some of the 50 -foot -high residential uses that could be developed in the R-3 zone. (4) Mary Gunther, who resides across South 88th Avenue east of the proposed facility, expressed her desire that the proposed landscaping along South 88th Avenue be attractive and her desire to see infrastructure improvements in the future such as sidewalk along South 88th Avenue for the entire distance between Summitview Avenue and Tieton Drive. (5) No one else appeared to testify at the hearing. (6) Eight written comments from residents in the area of the proposed facility were received during the comment period prior to the hearing. Five of the comments were in favor of the proposed facility because it would provide a place for residents in the area to conveniently store their property, one of the comments expressed a desire for sidewalk, street lighting and improved drainage along South 88th Avenue, and two of the comments expressed a concern about drawing additional strangers to the area, adding more traffic in the area and, if multifamily housing were developed on the property, adding more students to Apple Valley Grade School and other West Valley schools. (7) This recommendation relative to the requested rezone and this decision relative to the requested Class (3) use have been issued within ten business days of the hearing. B. SunimarY of Recommendation and Decision. The Hearing Examiner recommends that the Yakima City Council approve the requested project rezone from R-1 to R-3 to allow for the construction of a residential mini -storage facility and approves that Class (3) residential mini -storage use subject to conditions if the Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88" Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 2 t. • requested rezone is granted by the City Council. C. Basis for Recommendation and Decision. Based upon a view of the site on December 12, 2017, with no one else present; the application, staff report, exhibits, testimony and other evidence presented at the open record public hearing on December 14, 2017; and a review of both the 2040 Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan and the Yakima Urban Area Zoning Ordinance; the Hearing Examiner makes the following: FINDINGS I. Applicant, Property Owner, Representative. Gail Buchanan of 313 Mountain Shadows Place, Yakima, Washington is the applicant and the property owner for this proposal. Bill Hordan of Hordan Planning Services, 410 North 2nd Street, Yakima, Washington is the representative of the applicant and of the property owner for this proposal. II. Location. The location of the proposed residential mini -storage facility is 408 South 88th Avenue, Yakima, Washington. The Assessor's Parcel Number for the property is 181319-34010. III. Application. This application for a rezone and Class (3) use was submitted on September 28, 2017.

The application is a project rezone request which combines a request for a rezone of a 1.78 -acre parcel from the Single -Family Residential (R-1) zoning district to the Multifamily Residential (R-3) zoning district with a request for approval of a Class (3) residential mini -storage facility. The proposed 31,810 - square -foot residential mini -storage facility would consist of five buildings which would include 200 storage units of various sizes constructed in a single phase as an internal "fortress" compound on three sides. The sliding gated entry/exit with a key pad entry system would be located on the fourth side on the south which would provide distance separation between the facility and adjacent uses. Interior roadways would be hard -surfaced. Black chain link fencing with plastic privacy slats would be six feet in height along the north, west and south sides. Decorative wrought iron fencing along the east side four feet east of the most easterly building would allow 16 feet of width for arborvitae along the fence and river rock with Alaskan Cedars planted on 20 -foot centers in the area west of the street right-of- way. Access to the facility would be limited to the hours between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. seven days per week. An on-site camera would be installed for security purposes and low -impact Wall-pac type lighting would prevent light and glare from leaving the site. There would be three public parking spaces located at the entrance of the facility for renters and maintenance personnel. The facility would be accessed by South 88th Avenue which is classified as a collector arterial requiring 60 — 80 feet of right-of-way with curb, gutter and sidewalk per YMC Title 12. There currently exist 60 feet of right-of-way. Curb, gutter and sidewalk will be required along the frontage of the subject property either when it is Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 4 DEC 2 9 2017 Y 0F YAKIMA VEL0 1411 I.. developed or when the property to the south is also developed. The site can be served by Nob Hill Water Association. The sewer line located at the intersection of Tieton Drive and South 88th Avenue will need to be extended to the site if any bathroom, office or other such facilities that utilize water are installed on the site.

No comments — the applicant has indicated that there will not be any facilities requiring water or sewer at the site. VIII. Rezone Review Criteria. The Hearing Examiner's recommendations regarding rezone applications within the Yakima Urban Area must be based upon the following criteria specified in Subsection 15.23.030(D) of the Yakima Municipal Code (YMC): (1) The testimony at the public hearing. Associate Planner Trevor Martin, applicant Gail Buchanan and the applicant's representative Bill Hordan all testified in favor of the requested rezone from the R-1 zone to the R-3 zone to allow the proposed residential mini -storage facility. The only other testimony was presented by nearby resident Mary Gunther who expressed her desire that the proposed landscaping along South 88th Avenue be attractive and her desire to see infrastructure improvements in the future such as sidewalk along South 88th Avenue for the entire distance between Summitview Avenue and Tieton Drive. (2) The suitability of the property in question for uses permitted under the proposed zoning. The property will be well suited for the proposed residential mini -storage use, as conditioned, so long as all of the other criteria for approval of the requested R-3 zone are satisfied and so long as the criteria for approval of a Class (3) residential mini -storage use are satisfied. The property is suitable for the requested project rezone to the Multifamily Residential (R-3) zoning district to allow for construction of residential mini -storage units because that use would not Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 9 RE ED DEC 2 9 2 017 C)TY Of YMMA CONIMUMTY DEVELOP 13 14 require sanitary sewer in order to function. Residential uses would require the extension of a sewer line to an area that is uphill from the subject property or that is more than 500 feet from the subject property which would in either case be prohibitive due to the expense. The subject property is also suitable for the proposed mini -storage facility because the property is flat, fronts on a collector street, has indirect access to Summitview Avenue and to Tieton Drive, has access to public water, is located in a residential area and near an elementary school, is not encumbered with floodplains or critical areas, is served with police and fire protection, and is large enough to be considered for a rezone to R-3 even to accommodate a multi -family project if one were proposed. Since this is a project rezone for the specific residential mini -storage use described in the Class (3) use application, there is no need to consider the suitability of the property for other uses allowed in the R-3 zoning district. (3) The recommendation from interested agencies and departments. The Planning Division recommends approval of the proposed project rezone. No agencies or departments opposed this rezone request. (4) The extent to which the requested zoning amendment is in compliance with and/or deviates from the goals and policies as adopted in the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan and the intent of the zoning ordinance. The R-3 zoning district would be consistent with the current Mixed Residential designation of the subject property as is prescribed by the Future Land Use Map 111-3 and Table III -11 entitled Future Land Use and Current Zoning Comparison of the City's 2040 Comprehensive Plan, while the present R-1 zoning district is not considered to be consistent with the Mixed Residential designation for the property. Even though the Comprehensive Plan goals and policies neither encourage nor discourage the development of residential mini -storage facilities on properties that are designated Mixed Residential by the Comprehensive Plan, the proposed use would provide a commercial service and a benefit to the residents of the area by providing a place for convenient and needed storage of items within an enclosed area that cannot be accommodated within the residences themselves. It would also be consistent with the following policies in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan: Policy 2.1.1 which is to designate the general distribution, location and extent of the uses of land for housing, commerce, recreation, open spaces, public utilities and facilities and other land uses; Policy 2.1.4 which is to manage and Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 10 91E9 2 9 2017 TV 0F YAKIMA Y PBTLOP maintain the City's Official Zoning Map to ensure continued consistency with the Future Land Use Map; Policy 2.1.7 which is to allow new development only where adequate public services can be provided; Policy 2.1.10 which is to require properties to assume zoning consistent with the City's Future Land Use Plan, as adopted or as amended where appropriate; and Policy 2.12.2 which provides in part that public schools shall be accessible by sidewalks and bikeways. The proposed project rezone to R-3 would also be in compliance with the intent of the R-3 zoning district specified in YMC §15.03.020(D)(1) of the zoning ordinance to exclude activities that are not compatible with residential uses. No variances or other administrative adjustments from the prescribed development standards of the R-3 zoning district are being requested. (5) The adequacy of public facilities, such as roads, sewer, water and other required public services. The subject property is accessed by a collector arterial and is served by public water, public transit, electricity, telephone and police and fire protection. Specifically, utilities along Tieton Drive and South 88th Avenue which are available to serve the subject property include Nob Hill Water Association water service, Cascade Natural Gas service, Pacific Power electricity service, Centurylink telephone service, City of Yakima garbage collection service and City of Yakima fire and police department service. Although sewer service cannot be economically extended more than 500 feet to the subject property, the proposed use does not require sewer service. If the applicant does install any facilities which require sewer service in the future, the applicant will need to extend City of Yakima sewer service to the subject property despite the expense involved. This site is also part of the Apple Valley Elementary School Safe Routes to School Path so that curb, gutter and sidewalk improvements will be required to be installed along the frontage of the site as part of the proposed development, either when it is developed or when the property to the south is also developed. All of the streets serving the subject property have sufficient carrying capacity to accommodate the proposed use. (6) The compatibility of proposed zone change and associated uses with neighboring land uses. The proposal is consistent with the uses and zoning of neighboring properties because this is a mixed-use neighborhood. The general area consists of older single-family residences, newer single-family residences, duplexes, a public school, vacant ground and even a mobile home park to the east, Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 11 R-. OVED DEC 2 9 2017 OTY Of YAKIMA (*MOP 15 north of Tieton Drive. The proposed residential storage facility use would be more consistent with the surrounding existing uses than a multifamily residential apartment complex because the proposed use is low -impact. It would generate fewer vehicle trips, would not increase school enrollment, would occupy a vacant parcel of property and would provide a necessary service to surrounding neighborhoods. Although the proposed use is a Class 3 use, it would be more consistent with the nearby neighborhoods than other uses that could be developed on the property. Moreover, as conditioned, the proposed residential mini -storage use that would be allowed by the requested rezone to the R-3 zoning district would be compatible with neighboring land uses because of its design characteristics. The former use on the subject property was a fruit packing plant that was destroyed by fire in 2003. The subject property thereafter became a dumping ground for litter. The proposed residential storage facility, on the other hand, would have a "fortress" design that would help keep any adverse aesthetic or noise aspects of the facility from leaving the site on the east, north and west sides by using the buildings as buffers between the internal use of the facility and the exterior residential uses outside the facility. The applicant has also proposed (i) limited hours to access the site between 6 a.m and 9 p.m.; (ii) aesthetically pleasing black chain link fencing with plastic privacy slats along three sides of the facility; (iii) wrought iron fencing with plants and other landscaping along the east side of the facility adjacent to South 88th Avenue; (iv) location of the only entry/exit at the southeast corner of the facility; (v) the doors all opening to the inside of the facility; (vi) all buildings on the south side except for one being set back 30 feet from the property line with the facility being located as far to the north part of the property as possible; (vii) motion sensor security lighting; (viii) no permanent employees; (ix) no signage; (x) no outdoor storage areas; (xi) an on- line payment system; (xii) an on-line rental system; (xiii) three parking spaces at the entrance to the facility; and (xiv) buildings not to exceed 12 feet in height. These measures have been proposed to mitigate any adverse impacts of this proposed facility on the surrounding neighborhood in order to maintain compatibility between the existing uses and the proposed use. (7) The public need for the proposed change. The applicant testified at the hearing that there is a need for additional storage facilities in the West Valley area as shown by the fact that 96% to 100% of the storage units are rented in three Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 12 RECE917ED DEC 2 9 2017 CITY OF YAKIMA camMtymy realOPMENT 16 17 nearby residential mini -storage facilities. There is also a public need for the zoning of property to be consistent with its Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map designation which the requested rezone to the R-3 zoning district from the R-1 zoning district would accomplish. IX. Class (3) Review Criteria for a Proposed Residential Mini -Storage Use. The Hearing Examiner's findings and conclusions are required to set forth specific reasons and ordinance provisions demonstrating that the decision satisfies the following requirements set forth in YMC §15.04.020(C) and §15.15.040(E): (1) Compliance and Compatibility with the Objectives and Develop- ment Standards of the Comprehensive Plan. As previously noted relative to the rezone criteria in this regard, this proposed project rezone and Class (3) residential mini -storage use are fully supported by the City's Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map due to the subject property's Mixed Residential designation. The requested R-3 zoning district would be compliant and compatible with that designation while the current R-1 zoning district is not compliant or compatible with that designation. The requested R-3 zoning district would allow the proposed residential mini -storage facility to be approved if it satisfies the review criteria for a Class (3) use. As previously noted above, the proposed use would be compliant and compatible with Comprehensive Plan Policies 2.1.1, 2.1.4, 2.1.7, 2.1.10 and 2.12.2. (2) Compliance and Compatibility with the Intent and Character of the Multifamily Residential (R-3) Zoning District. As also previously noted relative to the rezone criteria in this regard, YMC §15.03.020(D)(1) provides that the intent of the R-3 zoning district is in part to exclude activities which are not compatible with residential uses. The proposed residential mini -storage facility is designed to be compatible with residential uses and is allowed in the R-3 zoning district by YMC Table 4-1 in YMC §15.04.030 so long as it satisfies the prescribed criteria for approval of a Class (3) use. It is not allowed as any type of use in the R-1 zoning district. Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 881h Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 13 18 (3) Compliance with the Provisions and Standards Established in the Zoning Ordinance. The applicable provisions and standards in the zoning ordinance include the requirements detailed above in the comments of the City's Development Services Team. Development standards which apply within the R-3 zoning district include the following: (a) Parking: YMC Table 6-1 in YMC §15.06.040 requires residen- tial mini -storage facilities to have one parking space for every 300 square feet of office area. Since there will not be an office for the proposed facility, no parking spaces are required. Cement pavers providing for three parking spaces are nevertheless shown on the site plan. (b) Sightscreening: Based upon existing land uses and a strict application of the sitescreening standards of Chapter 15.07 set forth in YMC §15.07.040, sitescreening standard "C" consisting of a six -foot -high view -obscuring fence is required along the north, west and south property lines. (c) Setbacks: YMC Table 5-1 of YMC Chapter 15.05 requires front building setbacks of 50 feet from the centerline of a right-of-way or a minimum of 20 feet from the front property line; 15 feet or one-half the building height from the rear property line; and 10 feet or one-half of the building height from the side property lines. The applicant's site plan meets all required structure setbacks from the centerline of South 88th Avenue and from the property lines of the subject property. (d) Lot coverage: The maximum permitted lot coverage in the R-3 zoning district is 80%. According to the site plan, the applicant proposes lot coverage of 79.5%. X. Consistency of the Proposed Residential Mini -Storage Use with Development Regulations and the Comprehensive Plan under the Criteria Required by 'VIVI. 416.06.020B is determined by consideration of the following factors: Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 14 RECEIVED DEC 2 9 2017 CITY (kYfM comMtswirY 11:EVELONirENT (1) The types of land uses permitted at the site include the proposed residential mini -storage use which is allowed as a Class (3) use in the R-3 zoning district if, as here, the criteria for approval of the requested rezone from the R-1 zoning district to the R-3 zoning district are satisfied and if the criteria for approval of the proposed Class (3) residential mini -storage use are also satisfied. (2) The density of residential development and the level of development such as units per acre would allow for approval of the requested rezone and for approval of the proposed Class (3) use. The proposed use of the subject property would be slightly less dense than the maximum density allowed in the R-3 zoning district since lot coverage would be 79.5% in a zoning district that allows 80% lot coverage. (3) The availability and adequacy of infrastructure and public facilities is not an issue here since there are adequate public utility services available for the proposed use which will not utilize or need sanitary sewer service and since there is adequate access to the site by way of South 88th Avenue. (4) The characteristics of the development are consistent with the development regulations and comprehensive plan considerations as discussed in detail above. CONCLUSIONS Based upon the foregoing Findings, the Hearing Examiner reaches the following Conclusions: (1) Pursuant to YMC Chapter 1.43, the Hearing Examiner has jurisdiction to recommend approval by the Yakima City Council of the requested project rezone from R-1 to R-3 in order to allow for approval of a residential mini -storage use and has jurisdiction to approve said Class (3) residential mini -storage use if the requested rezone is granted, and if, as here, all of the criteria for approval of said requested rezone and of said proposed Class (3) use are satisfied.

INDEX # 26 proposal, Bill Hordan of Hordan Planning Services, both testified in favor of the application by explaining why a rezone to the R-3 zone would make the zoning consistent with the Comprehensive Plan "Mixed Residential" designation, why a residential mini -storage use is being proposed for the site, and why that type of 12 - foot -high self-contained facility would be more compatible with the area than some of the 35 -foot -high residential uses that could be developed in the R-1 zone or some of the 50 -foot -high residential uses that could be developed in the R-3 zone. (4) Mary Gunther, who resides across South 88th Avenue east of the proposed facility, expressed her desire that the proposed landscaping along South 88th Avenue be attractive and her desire to see infrastructure improvements in the future such as sidewalk along South 88th Avenue for the entire distance between Summitview Avenue and Tieton Drive. (5) No one else appeared to testify at the hearing. (6) Eight written comments from residents in the area of the proposed facility were received during the comment period prior to the hearing. Five of the comments were in favor of the proposed facility because it would provide a place for residents in the area to conveniently store their property, one of the comments expressed a desire for sidewalk, street lighting and improved drainage along South 88th Avenue, and two of the comments expressed a concern about drawing additional strangers to the area, adding more traffic in the area and, if multifamily housing were developed on the property, adding more students to Apple Valley Grade School and other West Valley schools. (7) This recommendation relative to the requested rezone and this decision relative to the requested Class (3) use have been issued within ten business days of the hearing. B.

INDEX # A-1 28 19, 2017. The application is a project rezone request which combines a request for a rezone of a 1.78 -acre parcel from the Single -Family Residential (R-1) zoning district to the Multifamily Residential (R-3) zoning district with a request for approval of a Class (3) residential mini -storage facility. The proposed 31,810 - square -foot residential mini -storage facility would consist of five buildings which would include 200 storage units of various sizes constructed in a single phase as an internal "fortress" compound on three sides. The sliding gated entry/exit with a key pad entry system would be located on the fourth side on the south which would provide distance separation between the facility and adjacent uses. Interior roadways would be hard -surfaced. Black chain link fencing with plastic privacy slats would be six feet in height along the north, west and south sides. Decorative wrought iron fencing along the east side four feet east of the most easterly building would allow 16 feet of width for arborvitae along the fence and river rock with Alaskan Cedars planted on 20 -foot centers in the area west of the street right-of- way. Access to the facility would be limited to the hours between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. seven days per week. An on-site camera would be installed for security purposes and low -impact Wall-pac type lighting would prevent light and glare from leaving the site. There would be three public parking spaces located at the entrance of the facility for renters and maintenance personnel. The facility would be accessed by South 88th Avenue which is classified as a collector arterial requiring 60 — 80 feet of right-of-way with curb, gutter and sidewalk per YMC Title 12. There currently exist 60 feet of right-of-way. Curb, gutter and sidewalk will be required along the frontage of the subject property either when it is Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 4 ° DEC 2 9 2017 Y Of YAKIMA mvao OC.

Sewer design and construction will be done per City of Yakima Municipal Code and meet the requirements of City of Yakima Engineering and Wastewater Divisions. (7) Water/Irrigation. No comments — the applicant has indicated that there will not be any facilities requiring water or sewer at the site. VIII. Rezone Review Criteria. The Hearing Examiner's recommendations regarding rezone applications within the Yakima Urban Area must be based upon the following criteria specified in Subsection 15.23.030(D) of the Yakima Municipal Code (YMC): (1) The testimony at the public hearing. Associate Planner Trevor Martin, applicant Gail Buchanan and the applicant's representative Bill Hordan all testified in favor of the requested rezone from the R-1 zone to the R-3 zone to allow the proposed residential mini -storage facility. The only other testimony was presented by nearby resident Mary Gunther who expressed her desire that the proposed landscaping along South 88th Avenue be attractive and her desire to see infrastructure improvements in the future such as sidewalk along South 88th Avenue for the entire distance between Summitview Avenue and Tieton Drive. (2) The suitability of the property in question for uses permitted under the proposed zoning. The property will be well suited for the proposed residential mini -storage use, as conditioned, so long as all of the other criteria for approval of the requested R-3 zone are satisfied and so long as the criteria for approval of a Class (3) residential mini -storage use are satisfied. The property is suitable for the requested project rezone to the Multifamily Residential (R-3) zoning district to allow for construction of residential mini -storage units because that use would not Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue #003-17; CL3#009-17 9 RECEIVED DEC 2 9 20V CITY at- VIZIA COMMWITY NVCELOPPM DOC. INDEX 34 require sanitary sewer in order to function. Residential uses would require the extension of a sewer line to an area that is uphill from the subject property or that is more than 500 feet from the subject property which would in either case be prohibitive due to the expense. The subject property is also suitable for the proposed mini -storage facility because the property is flat, fronts on a collector street, has indirect access to Summitview Avenue and to Tieton Drive, has access to public water, is located in a residential area and near an elementary school, is not encumbered with floodplains or critical areas, is served with police and fire protection, and is large enough to be considered for a rezone to R-3 even to accommodate a multi -family project if one were proposed. Since this is a project rezone for the specific residential mini -storage use described in the Class (3) use application, there is no need to consider the suitability of the property for other uses allowed in the R-3 zoning district. (3) The recommendation from interested agencies and departments. The Planning Division recommends approval of the proposed project rezone. No agencies or departments opposed this rezone request. (4) The extent to which the requested zoning amendment is in compliance with and/or deviates from the goals and policies as adopted in the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan and the intent of the zoning ordinance. The R-3 zoning district would be consistent with the current Mixed Residential designation of the subject property as is prescribed by the Future Land Use Map 111-3 and Table III -11 entitled Future Land Use and Current Zoning Comparison of the City's 2040 Comprehensive Plan, while the present R-1 zoning district is not considered to be consistent with the Mixed Residential designation for the property. Even though the Comprehensive Plan goals and policies neither encourage nor discourage the development of residential mini -storage facilities on properties that are designated Mixed Residential by the Comprehensive Plan, the proposed use would provide a commercial service and a benefit to the residents of the area by providing a place for convenient and needed storage of items within an enclosed area that cannot be accommodated within the residences themselves. It would also be consistent with the following policies in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan: Policy 2.1.1 which is to designate the general distribution, location and extent of the uses of land for housing, commerce, recreation, open spaces, public utilities and facilities and other land uses; Policy 2.1.4 which is to manage and Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 10 100 ' • sk4 DEC 2 9 2017 TY IX' YAKIMA V (EVtLCiPM!NT DOC. INDEX 35 maintain the City's Official Zoning Map to ensure continued consistency with the Future Land Use Map; Policy 2.1.7 which is to allow new development only where adequate public services can be provided; Policy 2.1.10 which is to require properties to assume zoning consistent with the City's Future Land Use Plan, as adopted or as amended where appropriate; and Policy 2.12.2 which provides in part that public schools shall be accessible by sidewalks and bikeways. The proposed project rezone to R-3 would also be in compliance with the intent of the R-3 zoning district specified in YMC §15.03.020(D)(1) of the zoning ordinance to exclude activities that are not compatible with residential uses. No variances or other administrative adjustments from the prescribed development standards of the R-3 zoning district are being requested. (5) The adequacy of public facilities, such as roads, sewer, water and other required public services. The subject property is accessed by a collector arterial and is served by public water, public transit, electricity, telephone and police and fire protection. Specifically, utilities along Tieton Drive and South 88th Avenue which are available to serve the subject property include Nob Hill Water Association water service, Cascade Natural Gas service, Pacific Power electricity service, Centurylink telephone service, City of Yakima garbage collection service and City of Yakima fire and police department service. Although sewer service cannot be economically extended more than 500 feet to the subject property, the proposed use does not require sewer service. If the applicant does install any facilities which require sewer service in the future, the applicant will need to extend City of Yakima sewer service to the subject property despite the expense involved. This site is also part of the Apple Valley Elementary School Safe Routes to School Path so that curb, gutter and sidewalk improvements will be required to be installed along the frontage of the site as part of the proposed development, either when it is developed or when the property to the south is also developed. All of the streets serving the subject property have sufficient carrying capacity to accommodate the proposed use. (6) The compatibility of proposed zone change and associated uses with neighboring land uses. The proposal is consistent with the uses and zoning of neighboring properties because this is a mixed-use neighborhood. The general area consists of older single-family residences, newer single-family residences, duplexes, a public school, vacant ground and even a mobile home park to the east, Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 11 RECEIVED DEC 2 9 2017 orr tr YAKIMA VEVELO00 P 36 north of Tieton Drive. The proposed residential storage facility use would be more consistent with the surrounding existing uses than a multifamily residential apartment complex because the proposed use is low -impact. It would generate fewer vehicle trips, would not increase school enrollment, would occupy a vacant parcel of property and would provide a necessary service to surrounding neighborhoods. Although the proposed use is a Class 3 use, it would be more consistent with the nearby neighborhoods than other uses that could be developed on the property. Moreover, as conditioned, the proposed residential mini -storage use that would be allowed by the requested rezone to the R-3 zoning district would be compatible with neighboring land uses because of its design characteristics. The former use on the subject property was a fruit packing plant that was destroyed by fire in 2003. The subject property thereafter became a dumping ground for litter. The proposed residential storage facility, on the other hand, would have a "fortress" design that would help keep any adverse aesthetic or noise aspects of the facility from leaving the site on the east, north and west sides by using the buildings as buffers between the internal use of the facility and the exterior residential uses outside the facility. The applicant has also proposed (i) limited hours to access the site between 6 a.m and 9 p.m.; (ii) aesthetically pleasing black chain link fencing with plastic privacy slats along three sides of the facility; (iii) wrought iron fencing with plants and other landscaping along the east side of the facility adjacent to South 881 h Avenue; (iv) location of the only entry/exit at the southeast corner of the facility; (v) the doors all opening to the inside of the facility; (vi) all buildings on the south side except for one being set back 30 feet from the property line with the facility being located as far to the north part of the property as possible; (vii) motion sensor security lighting; (viii) no permanent employees; (ix) no signage; (x) no outdoor storage areas; (xi) an on- line payment system; (xii) an on-line rental system; (xiii) three parking spaces at the entrance to the facility; and (xiv) buildings not to exceed 12 feet in height. These measures have been proposed to mitigate any adverse impacts of this proposed facility on the surrounding neighborhood in order to maintain compatibility between the existing uses and the proposed use. (7) The public need for the proposed change. The applicant testified at the hearing that there is a need for additional storage facilities in the West Valley area as shown by the fact that 96% to 100% of the storage units are rented in three Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 12 1FLVIVE"D DEC2 9 201?

The Hearing Examiner's findings and conclusions are required to set forth specific reasons and ordinance provisions demonstrating that the decision satisfies the following requirements set forth in YMC §15.04.020(C) and §15.15.040(E): (1) Compliance and Compatibility with the Objectives and Develop- ment Standards of the Comprehensive Plan. As previously noted relative to the rezone criteria in this regard, this proposed project rezone and Class (3) residential mini -storage use are fully supported by the City's Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map due to the subject property's Mixed Residential designation. The requested R-3 zoning district would be compliant and compatible with that designation while the current R-1 zoning district is not compliant or compatible with that designation. The requested R-3 zoning district would allow the proposed residential mini -storage facility to be approved if it satisfies the review criteria for a Class (3) use. As previously noted above, the proposed use would be compliant and compatible with Comprehensive Plan Policies 2.1A, 2.1.4, 2.1.7, 2.1.10 and 2.12.2. (2) Compliance and Compatibility with the Intent and Character of the Multifamily Residential (R-3) Zoning District. As also previously noted relative to the rezone criteria in this regard, YMC §15.03.020(D)(1) provides that the intent of the R-3 zoning district is in part to exclude activities which are not compatible with residential uses. The proposed residential mini -storage facility is designed to be compatible with residential uses and is allowed in the R-3 zoning district by YMC Table 4-1 in YMC §15.04.030 so long as it satisfies the prescribed criteria for approval of a Class (3) use. It is not allowed as any type of use in the R-1 zoning district.

The applicable provisions and standards in the zoning ordinance include the requirements detailed above in the comments of the City's Development Services Team. Development standards which apply within the R-3 zoning district include the following: (a) Parking: YMC Table 6-1 in YMC §15.06.040 requires residen- tial mini -storage facilities to have one parking space for every 300 square feet of office area. Since there will not be an office for the proposed facility, no parking spaces are required. Cement pavers providing for three parking spaces are nevertheless shown on the site plan. (b) Sightscreening: Based upon existing land uses and a strict application of the sitescreening standards of Chapter 15.07 set forth in YMC §15.07.040, sitescreening standard "C" consisting of a six -foot -high view -obscuring fence is required along the north, west and south property lines. (c) Setbacks: YMC Table 5-1 of YMC Chapter 15.05 requires front building setbacks of 50 feet from the centerline of a right-of-way or a minimum of 20 feet from the front property line; 15 feet or one-half the building height from the rear property line; and 10 feet or one-half of the building height from the side property lines. The applicant's site plan meets all required structure setbacks from the centerline of South 88th Avenue and from the property lines of the subject property. (d) Lot coverage: The maximum permitted lot coverage in the R-3 zoning district is 80%. According to the site plan, the applicant proposes lot coverage of 79.5%. X. Consistency of the Proposed Residential Mini -Storage Use with Development Regulations and the Comprehensive Plan under the Criteria Required hv YMC §16.06.02013 is determined by consideration of the following factors: Gail Buchanan Rezone from R-1 to R-3 Residential Mini -Storage Use 408 South 88th Avenue RZ#003-17; CL3#009-17 14 DEC 2 9 CITY Of - ITV Etl,:--Nr:Lorsinrr roc. INDEX to II, is, 39 (1) The types of land uses permitted at the site include the proposed residential mini -storage use which is allowed as a Class (3) use in the R-3 zoning district if, as here, the criteria for approval of the requested rezone from the R-1 zoning district to the R-3 zoning district are satisfied and if the criteria for approval of the proposed Class (3) residential mini -storage use are also satisfied. (2) The density of residential development and the level of development such as units per acre would allow for approval of the requested rezone and for approval of the proposed Class (3) use. The proposed use of the subject property would be slightly less dense than the maximum density allowed in the R-3 zoning district since lot coverage would be 79.5% in a zoning district that allows 80% lot coverage. (3) The availability and adequacy of infrastructure and public facilities is not an issue here since there are adequate public utility services available for the proposed use which will not utilize or need sanitary sewer service and since there is adequate access to the site by way of South 88th Avenue. (4) The characteristics of the development are consistent with the development regulations and comprehensive plan considerations as discussed in detail above. CONCLUSIONS Based upon the foregoing Findings, the Hearing Examiner reaches the following Conclusions: (1) Pursuant to YMC Chapter 1.43, the Hearing Examiner has jurisdiction to recommend approval by the Yakima City Council of the requested project rezone from R-1 to R-3 in order to allow for approval of a residential mini -storage use and has jurisdiction to approve said Class (3) residential mini -storage use if the requested rezone is granted, and if, as here, all of the criteria for approval of said requested rezone and of said proposed Class (3) use are satisfied.

II. SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDATION Staff recommends approval of the Rezone and Type (3) applications, subject to conditions. III. FACTS A. Processing. 1. The applications for Rezone and Type (3) Review were received on September 28, 2017. 2. A Notice of Complete Application was sent October 19, 2017. 3. The applications are being processed under YMC Chapters 15.23 and 15.15 for Rezone and Type (3) Review. 4. Pursuant to YMC Ch. 1.43, The Hearing Examiner has the authority to make a decision on matters prescribed by YMC Title 15. 5. Public Notice: Pursuant to YMC § 15.11.090 and YMC § 16.05.010: 1. A Notice of Application and Public Hearing was sent to the applicant and adjoining property owners within 300 -feet of the subject property on October 23, 2017. Yakima 45 2. A legal notice was provided in the Yakima Herald Republic on October 23, 2017. 3. The subject property was posted with a land use action sign on October 22, 2017. 6. Environmental Review: A Notice of Application and SEPA Environmental Review was mailed to SEPA agencies, the applicant, and adjoining property owners within 300 feet of the subject property on October 23, 2017. Nine comments were received during the 20 -day public comment period which ended on November 13, 2017. A SEPA Determination of Nonsignificance (DNS) was issued on November 14, 2017. No appeals have been filed with the City of Yakima Planning Division. B. Current Zoning and Land Use: 1. The subject property is approximately 1.78 acres in size and is zoned Single - Family residential (R-1). The property is currently vacant. 2. Adjacent Properties and Land use Characteristics Direction Zoning Land Use North R-1 Single Family Home East R-1 Single Family Home South R-1 Vacant West R-1 88th Ave / Single Family Home 3. Other Characteristics 1. Critical Areas: i. There are no known critical areas located on any of the subject parcels. 2. Existing Infrastructure: i. Streets: The property is currently accessed by S. 88th Ave., classified as a Collector which requires a 60-80 feet of Right -of -Way with curb, gutter, and sidewalk development in accordance with YMC Title 12. Curb, gutter, and sidewalk as well as 60 feet of Right -of -Way are currently in place. ii. Water: The site can be served by Nob Hill Water. iii. Sewer: The nearest sewer line is located at the intersection of Tieton and 88th Ave. The line will need to be extended to the site if there are any bathroom, office, or other water producing facilities installed on the site. C. Statement of Cause - Rezone: Pursuant to YMC Ch. 15.23, the applicant provided the following paraphrased statements explaining their reasons for the proposed Rezone: 1. How is the subject property suitable for uses permitted under the proposed zoning? The subject property is suitable for uses permitted under the proposed zoning because the property is flat, fronts on an arterial, has indirect access to Summitview Road and Tieton Drive, has access to public water, is located in a 000, INDEX # A 2 46 residential area, is located near an elementary school, is not encumbered with floodplains or critical areas and is served with police and fire protection. The property is of a large enough size to be considered for the proposed zoning district because it could accommodate a multi -family project, if one was proposed. The unsuitable aspect of the property is its distance from sewer. Sewer is in the area but the nearest sewer line (South 88t11/VVoodwinds Way) is uphill from the project. The alternative to that is to run sewer south to Tieton Drive. That sewer line extension is over 500 feet south of the property. This excessive distance to connect to sewer is substantial and therefore is difficult to make a multi -family project practical because of the increased expense. Thus, this residential storage facility is being proposed because it does not need sanitary sewer to function. 2. What is the status of the existing land use? The current status of the property is a vacant lot. 3. How is the rezone request in compliance with and/or how does the request deviate from the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan? The subject property is designated Mixed Residential which is intended to promote mixture of housing types and densities. The designation is intended for areas now characterized by, and/or appropriate for, a mixture of housing types with close proximity to commercial services, transit access, and/or parks and other public recreational amenities... In this instance, no housing is proposed, so housing density is not an issue. This project proposes a commercial service to accommodate local residential storage needs. The land use is permitted by Class 3 Review in the zoning ordinance... Currently the Single-family (R-1) zoning district is not consistent with the underlying comprehensive plan designation of the property... This zoning district meets the intent of the comprehensive plan designation by establishing a zoning district within a comprehensive plan designation that is consistent with one another... 4. Are there adequate public facilities, such as traffic capacity, sewer services, potable water, stormwater drainage, schools, fire and police services, and other public services and infrastructure existing on the and around the subject property? The site is served with all public facilities necessary to support the proposed project and other uses provided in the proposed zoning district. Specifically, the site is served by a collector arterial, public water, public transit, electricity, telephone and police and fire protection. The site is not served with sanitary sewer... Are the existing public facilities capable of supporting the most intensive use of the new (requested) zone? If not, what mitigating measures are going to be implemented to address any short fans in public services that may exist? 3 47 The existing public facility lacking at this site is sanitary sewer. Other than that, the site is served by all necessary infrastructure to support the most intensive uses of the requested zoning district. To mitigate this lack of sanitary sewer, the proponent is proposing a land use that does not need sanitary sewer. The proposed land use is a Class 3 Use in the zoning district and requires the highest level of review. This review will determine the mitigation necessary to place this project in this new zoning district. 5. How is the proposed zone change compatible with the existing neighboring uses? The proposed zone change is compatible with neighboring uses because it proposes a specific land use as part of the application. A non -project rezone would have a much larger impact on the existing neighboring uses because the residents would not know what to expect. In this instance, the project is being disclosed along with the rezone request with the Class 3 Review application and site plan. This ensures compatibility between the uses in the neighborhood regardless of the zoning district. What mitigating measures are planned to address incompatibility, such as sitescreening, buffering building design, open space, traffic flow alteration, etc.? The land use proposal, residential storage facility, has been designed as a "fortress" to keep all adverse aspects of the project from leaving the site on the east, north and west. This "fortress" design helps prevent adverse impacts of aesthetics and noise generated from the loading and unloading of storage items inside the facility from affecting adjoining neighbors by using the buildings as buffers between the internal use of the facility and the exterior use of residential living. Additionally, the proponent has proposed limited hours to access the site, aesthetically pleasing fencing and landscaping, motion sensor security lighting, no permanent employees, no signage, an on-line payment system, on-line rental system, low height buildings and no outdoor storage areas. Together, all the above measures have been proposed to mitigate any adverse impacts of this project on the surrounding neighborhood to maintain compatibility between the existing and proposed land uses. 6. What is the public need for the proposed change? The public need for the change is two -fold. First, the proponent has studied the residential storage facility business and determined there is a need in the West Valley Area for additional storage facilities. This project will help alleviate that need and provide the community with the storage service that is lacking. Second, this proposal brings the zoning district and comprehensive plan designation into compliance with one another. This consistency brings the property into compliance with local zoning/comprehensive plans, which benefits the public by implementing the desires of the public as a whole through comprehensive plan goals and policies. 4 48 D. Statement of Cause — Type 3 Review: Pursuant to YMC Ch. 15.215, the applicant provided the following paraphrased statements explaining their reasons for the proposed Type 3 Review: 1. Fully describe the proposed development, including number of dwelling units and parking spaces. If the proposal is for a business, describe hours of operation, days per week and all other relevant information related the business. The proposal is to construct a 31,810 square foot residential storage facility at 408 South 88th Avenue between Tieton Drive and Summitview A venue. The site is 1. 78 acres in size and currently vacant. As proposed, the project will be completed in a single phase consisting of 5 separate buildings. A total of 200 storage units will be created through this proposal. Access to the site will be by a private driveway from South 88th Avenue through a gated entry (slide -gate) with a key pad entry system. The interior roadways are proposed to be hard -surfaced. The hours of operation will be 6 am to 9 pm seven days a week. Three public parking spaces are proposed at the entrance of the facility to provide client and maintenance personnel a place to park... The site will be completely fenced. Fencing along the north, west and south is proposed to be black chain-link fence with plastic privacy slats. Fencing along the east is proposed to be decorative wrought -iron. The wrought -iron fence is proposed to be 4 feet east of the most easterly building. This will provide an area that is 16 -feet in width for additional landscaping. The area is proposed to be planted with arborvitae adjacent to the wrought -iron fence and the area between the arborvitae and the edge of the right-of-way for South 88th Avenue will be river rock with Alaskan Cedars planted on 20 foot centers (about 10 trees)... An on-site camera system will be installed for security purposes. Night-time security lighting will also be provided. Low -impact, Wall-pac type lighting will be used to prevent light and glare from leaving the site... 2. How is the proposal compatible to neighboring properties? The proposal is compatible to neighboring properties because it has been designed as an internal compound "fortress" on three sides. The fourth side (south) provides distance separation between land uses. The concept is to have the storage buildings act as barriers to adverse aesthetic and noise impacts along the east, north and west sides and provide substantial distance between the residence to the south and the project on the fourth side (south). The distance barrier is provided by constructing the project as far north on the property as possible, yet still have a viable project... 3. What mitigation measures are proposed to promote compatibility? The proposal has been designed as a "fortress" to keep all adverse aspects of the project from leaving the site on the east, north and west. This "fortress" design helps prevent adverse impacts of aesthetics and noise generated from the loading and unloading of storage items inside the facility from affecting adjoining neighbors by using the buildings as buffers between the internal use of the facility and the exterior use of residential living... DOC. INDEX # A 5 49 4. How is your proposal consistent with current zoning of your property? As part of this Class 3 Review, the proponent is also applying for a Minor Rezone to Multifamily Residential. This rezone is available to the proponent because the underlying Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Designation is designated Mixed Residential... ...No variances or adjustment of development standards are being proposed. The project meets or exceeds all property line setbacks, building height requirements, parking standards, sitescreening standards, sign standards and lot coverage standards... This proposal provides a service need in the district that will serve the needs of the community as anticipated by the zoning district... 5. How is your proposal consistent with uses and zoning of neighboring properties? The proposal is consistent with the uses and zoning of neighboring properties because this is a classic mixed-use neighborhood. The general area consists of older single-family residences, newer family residences, duplexes, a public school, vacant ground and even a mobile home park to the east, north of Tieton Drive. The proposed residential storage facility use is more consistent with the surrounding existing uses and zoning than a multi -family residential project because the proposed use is low -impact. It will generate less vehicle trips, will not increase school enrollment, will occupy a vacant parcel of property and will provide a necessary service to surrounding neighborhoods. Although the use is a Class 3 Use, it is more consistent with "this" neighborhood than other uses that could occur on the property... 6. How is your proposal in the best interest of the community? 7. Currently, the site is a vacant lot that previously housed a fruit packing facility... The proponent further believes this proposal is in the best interest of the community because it provides a new residential storage facility in the West Valley area. The proponent has studied the vacancy rate of residential storage facilities in West Valley and found the vacancy rate to be very low... E. Yakima Area Comprehensive Plan: The 2040 Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan, Future Land Use Map designates this area as Mixed Residential. The purpose for Mixed Residential is designated to provide for areas with a mixture of housing types and densities. A mixture of single-family, duplex, and multifamily dwelling units. The permitted maximum density is up to or above 13 net dwelling units per acre, depending on the underlying zoning district and neighborhood context. For developments electing to conform to site and building design standards promoting pedestrian -oriented development, density is primarily limited by allowable building height, integration of required parking, market conditions, and conformance with applicable site and building design provisions. Specifying the maximum number of dwelling units in one DOC. INDEX 6 50 building may be appropriate in some areas to ensure compatibility and to limit building massing and density. F. Applicable Law. Yakima Urban Area Zoning Ordinance: 1. Rezone Defined::' Pursuant to YMC § 15.23.010, "From time to time, a change in circumstance or condition may warrant a change in the zoning text or map create by this title.

Class (3) Land Use Defined. Pursuant to YMC § 15.02.020, "Class (3) uses are those uses set forth and defined in the text and tables of YMC Chapter 15.04, and are generally incompatible with adjacent and abutting property because of their size, emissions, traffic generation, neighborhood character or for other reasons. However, they may be compatible with other uses in the district if they are properly sited and designed. Class (3) uses may be permitted by the Hearing Examiner when he determines, after holding a public hearing that the use complies with provisions and standards; and that difficulties related to the compatibility, the provisions of public services, and the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan policies have been adequately resolved." 3. Type (3) Review: Pursuant to YMC § 15.04.020(C), "Class (3) uses are generally not permitted but may be allowed by the Hearing Examiner after Type (3) Review and public hearing. The Hearing Examiner may approve, deny, or impose conditions on the proposed land use and site improvements to promote compatibility with the intent and character of the district and the policies and development criteria of the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan. The procedures in YMC Ch. 15.15 shall be used to review and evaluate Class (3) uses or Class (2) uses that have been forwarded to the Hearing Examiner for review." 4. R-1 Zoning District Defined: Per YMC § 15.03.020(B) the R-1 zoning district is intended to: 1. Establish new residential neighborhoods for detached single-family dwellings free from other uses except those which are compatible with, and serve the residents of, this district, which may include duplexes and zero lot lines if established during the subdivision process; 2. Preserve existing residential neighborhoods for detached single-family dwellings free from other uses to ensure the preservation of the existing residential character, and serve the residents of this district; and 3. Locate moderate -density residential development, up to seven dwelling units per net residential acre, in areas served by public water and sewer system. Detached single-family dwellings are the primary use in this district. The district is characterized by up to sixty percent lot coverage; access to individual lots by local access streets; required front, rear and side yard setbacks; and one and two story structures. The density in the district is generally seven dwelling units per net residential acre or less. This zone is intended to afford single-family neighborhoods the highest level of protection from encroachment by potentially incompatible nonresidential land uses or impacts. Nonresidential uses within these zones are not allowed; DOC. INDEX 7 51 except for public or quasi -public uses, which will be required to undergo extensive public review and will have all necessary performance or design standards assigned to them as necessary to mitigate potential impacts to adjacent residences. 4. R-3 Zoning District Defined: Per YMC § 15.03.020(D) the R-3 zoning district is intended to: 1. Establish and preserve high-density residential districts by excluding activities not compatible with residential uses; 2. Locate high-density residential development more than twelve dwelling units per net residential acre in areas receiving the full range of urban services; 3. Locate high-density residential development near neighborhood shopping facilities; and 4. Locate high-density residential development so that traffic generated by the development does not pass through lower -density residential areas. The district contains a variety of attached or clustered multifamily dwellings. 5. Compatibility Defined: Pursuant to YMC § 15.02.020, "Compatibility means the characteristics of different uses or developments that permit them to be located near each other in harmony, with or without special mitigation measures." 6. Sitescreening Defined: Pursuant to YMC § 15.07.010, "The purpose of this chapter is to establish sitescreening standards to provide a visual buffer between uses of different intensity, streets and structures; reduce erosion and stormwater runoff, protect property values; and eliminate potential land use conflicts by mitigating adverse impacts from dust, odor, litter, noise, glare, lights, signs, water runoff, buildings or parking areas." The proposed use of Residential Mini -Storage Units requires Sitescreening Standard C on the West Property line, which includes "a six-foot high, view obscuring fence, made of wood, masonry block, concrete, or slatted chain link material." 7. Parking: Pursuant to YMC § 15.06.040, Table 6-1, Residential Mini -Storage Units require 1 parking space for every 300 square -feet of office area. No office have been proposed. 8. Lot Coverage: Pursuant to YMC Ch. 15.05, Table 5-1, the maximum lot coverage in the B-2 zoning district is 80% 9.

All required frontage improvements shall be completed prior to Certificate of Occupancy unless allowed to be covered by a Covenant/Deferral agreement. 2. Traffic Engineering. No Comments. 3. Code Administration. 1. Fire hydrants are required to be Fire hydrants are required to be installed prior to the issuance of building permits in accordance with the 2015 International Fire Code Appendix B calculations meeting the necessary fire flow of the buildings. Due to the size of the buildings, a licensed designer in responsible charge (architect) will be required to show how the buildings will be constructed to comply with the fire/life/safety provisions of the 2015 International Building Code. 2. A City of Yakima Business License is required per YMC 5.52 prior to commencing business. 4. Planning. The subject site is located along the Apple Valley Elementary School Safe Routes to School Route. Frontage improvements shall be installed across the subject site in accordance with the Engineering requirements listed above. Safe Routes to School is a program aimed to help improve access to nearby school facilities for children walking to school. The subject site is located in a residential neighborhood, approximately 530 feet, from the nearest school. Installing frontage improvements across the site would help improved walking conditions to Apple Valley Elementary. 9 53 Lighting shall be provided to illuminate any off-street parking or loading space used at night. When provided, lighting shall be directed to reflect away from adjacent and abutting properties. Parking lots adjacent to residential districts or uses shall be designed with down -shielding and luminaries creating no lighting pollution upon those properties. A photometric lighting plan may be required if the parking lot is located adjacent to or abutting residential properties. 5. Surface Water. As this project involves clearing or grading one acre or more, a SWPPP Permit shall be required from the applicant. The main submittals for a SWPPP Permit are: • Drainage plan(s) and calculations • Temporary Erosion and Sediment Control plan • Stormwater maintenance agreement and plan • Proof that the maintenance agreement was recorded in the Yakima County Auditor's Office Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) or Erosivity Waiver (unless exempt). A copy of the SWPPP or Erosivity Waiver Certificate Statement shall be given to the Surface Water Engineer. The applicant is advised to read Chapter 7.83 of the Yakima Municipal Code to obtain all appropriate information concerning the Stormwater Site Plan and Chapter 7.82 for information concerning the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan. Grading and/or building permits shall not be issued without the project site first passing an erosion control inspection. Complete stormwater design plans, specifications and runoff/storage calculations supporting the stormwater design are required pursuant to the Eastern Washington Stormwater Manual and City of Yakima standards. These plans and control measures must be completed by a licensed Professional Engineer and then be reviewed and approved by the City of Yakima Surface Water Engineer prior to construction. UIC Registration — Stormwater. In accordance with Chapter 2 Section 2.4 of the December 2006 edition of the Department of Ecology's Guidance for UIC Wells that Manage Stormwater Publication Number 05-10-067, Underground Injection Control (UIC) wells constructed on or after February 3, 2006 are considered new and must be registered with the Department of Ecology (DOE) prior to construction. A Construction Stormwater General Permit may be required from the Washington State Department of Ecology. The applicant should contact the Department of Ecology to determine if this permit is required. Due to recent changes by the Department of Ecology to the permit, Ecology will no longer accept paper copies of the "Notice of Intent for Construction Activity". Applicants should refer the Ecology construction stormwater web page at http://m(w.ecy.wa.gov/programs/wq/stormwater/construction/enoi.html. 6. Sewer: if any bathroom or office facilities are installed, sewer will need to be extended to site from approximately 600' to the south. Sewer design and DOC. INDEX 10 54 construction will be done per City of Yakima Municipal Code and meet the requirements of City of Yakima Engineering and Wastewater Divisions. 7. Water/Irrigation: No comments — the applicant has indicated that there will not be any facilities requiring water or sewer at the site. H. Additional Comments Received: The following paraphrased comments were received during the SEPA comment Period: 1. Washington State Department of Ecology. Thank you for the opportunity to comment during the optional determination of nonsignificance process for the rezone and construction of residential mini -storage units, proposed by Gail Buchanan. We have reviewed the documents and have the following comments: Toxics Clean -Up: Based upon the historical agricultural use of this land, there is a possibility the soil contains residual concentrations of pesticides. Ecology recommends that the soil be sampled and analyzed for lead and arsenic, and for organochlorine pesticides. If these contaminates are found at concentrations above the Model Toxics Control Act clean up levels Ecology recommend that the potential buyer be notified of the occurrence. Water Quality: Environmental Checklist Section B.1, Earth. Question g: This project will require an Erosivity waiver. V. FINDINGS A. Rezone Approval Criteria: In accordance with the provisions of the Yakima Municipal Code (YMC) § 15.23.030(D)(1-7), recommendations to approve or deny proposed rezones shall include the following consideration: 1. The testimony at the public hearing: A Notice of Application was mailed to all property owners within 300 feet of the subject properties on October 23, 2017, wherein the public was invited to submit written and/or oral comments at the public hearing on this proposed rezone. Nine comments were received during the public comment period. One comment was from the Washington Department of Ecology and can be found in the report below. Two comments were against the proposed storage units. Areas of concern within those comments include: no being comfortable with a variety of strangers using a facility right next to residential housing and a nearby school; the potential storage facility may become an attractive nuisance and may encourage break-ins; there is no sidewalk located on the site. One comment was received stating general concerns about the project, those comments include: traffic and pedestrian safety along a road without sidewalk; storm runoff drainage and fire drainage along this part of 88th Ave. Five comments were submitted in general support of the development. 2. The suitability of the property in question for uses permitted under the proposed zoning: 11 55 The subject property is suitable for uses permitted in the R-3 zoning district. As a project specific rezone, additional analysis on the proposed Class (3) land use to construct residential mini -storage is contained below. 3. The recommendation from interested agencies and departments: No agencies or department have registered any opposition to this rezone. 4. The extent to which the proposed amendments are in compliance with and/or deviate from the goals and policies as adopted in the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan and the intent of this title: Rezoning the property from R-1 to R-3 will bring the property into conformance with the Mixed Residential Future Land Use designation. There are no Goals or Policies in the 2040 City of Yakima Comprehensive plan that support or encourage storage units in the mixed residential future land use designation. Storage units may be permitted as a Type III land use in the R-3 zoning district. There are no goals and policies that discourage the development of the residential land into storage units. The City of Yakima 2040 Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code strongly encourages the development of storage units in zones such as the Airport Safety Overlay (AS) and Industrial zones (M-1 & M-2). 5. The adequacy of public facilities, such as roads, sewer, water and other required public services: Along Tieton and 88th Ave are various utilities which are available to serve the property, including Nob Hill Water, Cascade natural gas; Pacific Power; Centurylink telephone; Charter cable TV; and City of Yakima garbage collection services. City of Yakima Fire and Police departments also serve this area. Sewer is not available to the site from 88th but is available in Tieton Ave. If the applicant installs any facilities which require sewer, the applicant will need to extend City of Yakima Sewer to the site. This property is served, or capable of being served, by all public utilities necessary to support development of the proposed Residential Mini Storage units. In addition, this site is part of the Apple Valley Elementary School Safe routes to School Path and curb, gutter, and sidewalk improvements shall be installed as part of the proposed development. All abutting streets have sufficient carrying capacity to accommodate any future development. 6. The compatibility of the proposed zone change and associated uses with neighboring land uses: The rezone proposal from R-1 to R-3 establishes a more intensive residential use that is not typically found within the subject neighborhood, which is primarily comprised of R-1. The addition of R-3 zoned property to the neighborhood could create an opportunity for a more diverse housing stock and additional housing opportunities in the West Valley area of Yakima. The applicant has proposed to construct storage units on the site instead of additional housing, Storage units will provide the surrounding neighborhood to securely store items, but will eliminate 1.73 acres of land from the potential housing stock. 7. The public need for the proposed change: DOC. INDEX 12 56 The West Valley of Yakima has a limited inventory of R-3 zoned property, the creation of additional R-3 land would create an opportunity to provide the area with a more diverse housing stock in an area less than .25 miles from a school. Storage may be permitted as a Type III use in the R-3 zoning, but units are encouraged in the AS, M-1, and M-2 zoning district. B. Proposed Class (3) Use: The proposed Residential Mini Storage units will be contained within five buildings, totaling 200 storage units. There will be no office associated with the storage units and a total of three parking spaces. The facility will accessible 24 hours a day via secured key pad. Sitescreening: A Sitescreening fence meeting the requirements of Standard C shall be required along the north, west and south property lines. Parking: No office has been proposed in the application, therefore no parking spaces are required. The applicant has provided three spaces. Lot Coverage: The applicant proposes 79.5% lot coverage, which meets the R-3 zoning district standard of 80%. Setbacks: The applicant's proposed site plan meets or exceeds all required structure setbacks from property line(s) and from a residential district. Comprehensive Plan Goals and Policies Policy 2.1.1: Designate the general distribution, location and extent of the uses of land for housing, commerce, recreation, open spaces, public utilities and facilities and other land uses. Policy 2.1.4: Manage and maintain the City's Official Zoning Map to ensure continued consistency with the Future Land Use Map (see Exhibit 2-1). Policy 2.1.7: Allow new development only where adequate public services can be provided. Policy 2.1.10: Require properties to assume zoning consistent with the City's Future Land Use Plan, as adopted or as amended where appropriate. Policy 2.12.2: Public schools shall be accessible by sidewalks and bikeways. Provide for through -block connections, where necessary to reduce walking distance to schools. V. CONCLUSIONS 1. The hearing examiner has jurisdiction to issue a recommendation on this application to the City Council. 2. The proposed Rezone and Class (3) use do not conflict with the goals and objectives of The Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan, however, there are not goals and policies which support the development of a storage facility in the R-3 zoning district. 3. SEPA review resulted in the issuance of a DNS on November 14, 2017. The appeal period for this determination ended November 28, 2017 — no appeal was filed. 13 57 4. No adverse impacts have been identified from granting this approval. 5. A Notice of Application was mailed to all property owners within 300 feet of the subject properties on October 23, 2017, wherein the public was invited to submit written and/or oral comments at the public hearing on this proposed rezone. Nine comments were received during the public comment period. 6. This Rezone is compatible with the Future Land Use Map III -3 and Table III -11: Future Land Use and Current Zoning Comparison of the City of Yakima's 2040 Comprehensive Plan. 7. This proposed Type (3) review is compatible with the R-3 zoning district and adjacent properties and meets all applicable development standards. 8. Approval of these Rezone and Type (3) applications will have the following public benefits: potential for a more divers and affordable housing types in the future, and the installation frontage improvements along a Safe Routes to School Walking route to Apple Valley Elementary. VI. RECOMMENDATION The Community Development Department recommends APPROVAL of this project Rezone request from Single -Family Residential (R-1) to Multifamily Residential (R-3) and Type (3) Review to construct Residential Mini Storage Units, subject to the following conditions: 1. A commercial driveway approach, meeting standard detail R4, shall be installed at the ingress/egress point. 2.

A. flow is the subieet property suitable for uses permitted under the proposed zoning? The subject property is suitable for uses permitted under the proposed zoning because the property is flat, fronts on an arterial, has indirect access to Summitview Road and Tieton Drive, has access to public water, is located in a residential area, is located near an elementary school, is not encumbered with floodplains or critical areas and is served with police and fire protection. The property is of a large enough size to be considered for the proposed zoning district because it could accommodate a multi -family project, if one was proposed. The unsuitable aspect of the property is its distance from sewer. Sewer is in the area but the nearest sewer line (South 88th/Woodwinds Way) is uphill, from the project. The alternative to that is to run sewer south to Tieton Drive. That sewer line extension is over 500 feet south of the property. This excessive distance to connect to sewer is substantial and therefore is difficult to make a multi -family project practical because of the increased expense. Thus, this residential storage facility is being proposed because it does not need sanitary sewer to function. What is the status of the existing land use? The current status of the property is a vacant lot. B. How is the rezone request in compliance with and/or how does the request deviate from the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan? The subject property is designated Mixed Residential which is intended to promote mixture of housing types and densities. The designation is intended for areas now characterized by, and/or appropriate for, a mixture of housing types with close proximity to commercial services, transit access, and/or parks and other public recreational amenities. The designation often creates a transition from commercial and mixed residential areas to low density residential areas. The implementing zoning districts for this comprehensive plan designation are Moderate Density Residential (R-2) and Multi- family Residential (R-3). In this instance, no housing is proposed, so housing density is not an issue. This project proposes a commercial service to accommodate local residential storage needs. The land use is permitted by Class 3 Review in the zoning ordinance. This site is located in a mixed-use neighborhood consisting of single and two-family housing units, as well as educational and recreational facilities. The sitc is also served with vehicular access from an arterial street and has access to public water. Since sanitary sewer is not available to the site, this project will ultiinately act as a buffer between properties to the south and neighboring properties to the north, along South 88th Avenue. Specifically, the two properties directly south of this site, located on the west side of South 88th Avenue, are also designated as Mixed Residential by the Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map. Since these properties are closer to the sanitary sewer line, they are likely to be rezoned and developed at a higher density. This project will provide the transition and buffer between the lower density properties to the north and the likely higher density propertics to the south. Currently the Single-family (R-1) zoning district is not consistent with the underlying comprehensive plan designation of the property. One of the implementing zoning districts of the Mixed Use Residential Designation is Multi -family Residential (R-3), which is needed to process thc Class 3 Review application for this project. This zoning district meets the intent of the comprehensive plan designation by establishing a zoning district within a comprehensive plan designation that is consistent with one another. For the reasons above, this project is in compliance with the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan. sewer servic C, Are there iidetinate rinhlie facilities, such as traffic caoaritv, es, ritttahle water, storinwater drainage, schools, fire and police seiviees, and other priblic services atilt itifrastructtire existing on the and arctund the subteet nronertx!? The site is served with all public facilities necessary to support the proposed project and other uses provided in the proposed zoning district. Specifically, the site is served by a collector arterial, public water, public transit, electricity, telephone and police and fire protection. The site is not served with sanitary sewer. The lack of sewer limits the development potential of the property, However, the proposed project can be accommodated without the need for sanitary sewer. Are the existing public facilities capable of supporting the most intensive use of the new (requested) zone? If not, what mitigating measures are going to be implemented to address any short falls in public services that may exist? The existing public facility lacking at this site is sanitary sewer, Other than that, the site is served by all necessary infrastructure to support the most intensive uses of the requested zoning district, To mitigate this lack of sanitary sewer, the proponent is proposing a land use that does not need sanitary sewer. The proposed land use is a Class 3 Use in the zoning district and requires the highest level of review. This review will determine the mitigation necessary to place this project in this new zoning district. RECEIVED DOC. SEP 2 8 2017 INDEX CITY OF YAKIMA # PLANNNG 90 91 D. How is the proposed zone change compatible with the existing neighboring uses? The proposed zone change is compatible with neighboring uses because it proposes a specific land use as part of the application. A non -project rezone would have a much larger impact on the existing neighboring uses because the residents would not know what to expect. In this instance, the project is being disclosed along with the rezone request with the Class 3 Review application and site plan. This ensures compatibility between the uses in the neighborhood regardless of the zoning district. What mitigating measures are planned to address incompatibility, such as sitescreening, buffering building design, open space, traffic flow alteration, etc.? The land use proposal, residential storage facility, has been designed as a "fortress" to keep all adverse aspects of the project from leaving the site on the east, north and west. This "fortress" design helps prevent adverse impacts of aesthetics and noise generated from the loading and unloading of storage items inside the facility from affecting adjoining neighbors by using the buildings as buffers between the internal use of the facility and the exterior use of residential living. Additionally, the proponent has proposed limited hours to access the site, aesthetically pleasing fencing and landscaping, motion sensor security lighting, no permanent employees, no signage, an on-line payment system, on-line rental system, low height buildings and no outdoor storage areas. Together, all the above measures have been proposed to mitigate any adverse impacts of this project on the surrounding neighborhood to maintain compatibility between the existing and proposed land uses. . What is the public need for the proposed change? The public need for the change is two -fold. First, the proponent has studied the residential storage facility business and determined there is a need in the West Valley Area for additional storage facilities. This project will help alleviate that need and provide the community with the storage service that is lacking. Second, this proposal brings the zoning district and comprehensive plan designation into compliance with one another. This consistency brings the property into compliance with local zoning/comprehensive plans, which benefits the public by implementing the desires of the public as a whole through comprehensive plan goals and policies.

Page [ 4 WRITTEN NARRATIVE RECEIV SEP 2 8 2017 (Class 3 Review) CITY OF YAKIMA PLANING DIV. A. Fully describe the proposed development, including number of dwelling units and parking spaces. If the proposal is for a business, describe hours of operation, days per week and all other relevant information related the business. The proposal is to construct a 31,810 square foot residential storage facility at 408 South 88th Avenue between Tieton Drive and Summitview Avenue. The site is 1.78 acres in size and currently vacant. As proposed, the project will be completed in a single phase consisting of 5 separate buildings. A total of 200 storage units will be created through this proposal. Access to the site will be by a private driveway from South 88th Avenue through a gated entry (slide -gate) with a key pad entry system. The interior roadways are proposed to be hard -surfaced. The hours of operation will be 6 am to 9 pm seven days a week. Three public parking spaces are proposed at the entrance of the facility to provide client and maintenance personnel a place to park. The parking spaces will be constructed with "pavers" to reduce the amount of impervious surface in the facility. The buildings are proposed to be constructed of steel and will be light gray in color with dark gray doors. The buildings will vary in their square footage and height. However, the tallest height of any residential storage structure proposed will not exceed 12 feet in height. The residential storage facility has been designed in what is known as a "fortress" design. This means that the backs of many of the buildings will back-up to the property line on which they are constructed. In this instance, the fortress design is used on the east, north and west sides of the property. This design keeps the adverse impacts of aesthetics and noise within the interior of the complex. The southern end of the complex will not have this design, as it will be the main driveway into and out of the complex. However, no unit openings are proposed along the southern end of the complex and most of the units will be setback at least 30 feet from the southern property line. The only exception to this is the most westerly unit which will be setback approximately 12 feet from the southern property line. The exterior buildings (east, north and west) will have shed roofs which will permit drainage to be collected between them and their respective property lines. The area between the backs of the buildings and the property lines will be constructed as drainage swales and covered with a light coat of gravel to prevent dust and mud from occurring. Thus, some of the site drainage will be retained on-site, between the back of the units and the perimeter fence. The interior buildings will have pitched roofs and drainage from roofs and driveways is to be directed to on-site drainage facilities located either under the hard -surfaced driveways (injection wells) or to an above ground swales located near the northwest corner of the property and along the south property line, or both. In short, if the project is approved, the proponent will have a drainage study performed by a licensed engineer to ensure that all drainage generated by the project remains on-site. The site will be completely fenced. Fencing along the north, west and south is proposed to be black chain-link fence with plastic privacy slats. Fencing along the east is proposed to be decorative wrought -iron. The wrought -iron fence is proposed to be 4 feet east of the most DOC. INDEX 94 easterly building. This will provide an area that is 16 -feet in width for additional landscaping. The area is proposed to be planted with arborvitae adjacent to the wrought -iron fence and the area between the arborvitae and the edge of the right-of-way for South 88th Avenue will be river rock with Alaskan Cedars planted on 20 foot centers (about 10 trees). Landscaping is proposed to be maintained at least once a week, more if needed. There will be no permanent on-site employees but an off-site manager will be available to answer telephone questions and show available units. The owner of the facility currently lives nearby and can help out with these duties as well. There is no sign currently proposed for this project. All storage will be inside the individual units and no outdoor storage is proposal. This will be a Web -based Secure Storage Facility with customers checking in and out using Secure Enhanced Web -site technology. The web -site will accept monthly rental payments and show unit availability. This will reduce the number of vehicle trips to and from the site, as there will be need to visit the site, except to show units to prospective renters. An on-site camera system will be installed for security purposes. Night-time security lighting will also be provided. Low -impact, Wall-pac type lighting will be used to prevent light and glare from leaving the site. The proponent anticipates using small on-site solar panels to energize the security lighting. Security lighting is also proposed to bc on motion sensors to prevent an abundance of light and glare from leaving the site. Thus, night-time security lighting will only occur, if movement occurs. The only exception to the security lighting above will be near the entrance to the facility. The proponent believes that permanent lighting is necessary because this is the entrance to the facility. Lighting at the entrance will be located within the gated portion of the facility but will not be on a motion scnsor, to provide a constant illumination of the entrance area during night-time hours. Domestic water for the site will be provided by the Nob Hill Water Company. No sewer is proposed for the facility. B. How is the proposal compatible to neighboring properties? The proposal is compatible to neighboring properties because it has been designed as an internal compound "fortress" on three sides. The fourth side (south) provides distance separation between land uses. The concept is to have thc storage buildings act as barriers to adverse aesthetic and noise impacts along the east, north and west sides and provide substantial distance between the residence to the south and the project on the fourth side (south). The distance barrier is provided by constructing the project as far north on the property as possible, yet still have a viable project. The front of the proposal, along South 88th Avenue has been designed to have the least amount of impact on neighboring properties to the east. The installation of a decorative fence, arborvitae and 16 feet of river rock and trees on 20 -foot centers should ensure compatibility for those living easterly beyond South 88th Avenue. RECEIVED SEP 2 8 2017 CITY OF YAKIMA PLA!,NIN3 DIV DOC. INDEX 95 C. What mitigation measures are proposed to promote compatibility? The proposal has been designed as a "fortress" to keep all adverse aspects of the project from leaving the site on the east, north and west. This "fortress" design helps prevent adverse impacts of aesthetics and noise generated from the loading and unloading of storage items inside the facility from affecting adjoining neighbors by using the buildings as buffers between the internal use of the facility and the exterior use of residential living. Additionally, the proponent has proposed limited hours to access the site, aesthetically pleasing fencing and landscaping, motion sensor security lighting, no permanent employees, no signage, an on-line payment system, on- line rental system, low height buildings and no outdoor storage areas. Together, all the above measures have been proposed to mitigate any adverse impacts of this project on the surrounding neighborhood to maintain compatibility between the existing and proposed land uses. D. How is your proposal consistent with current zoning of your property? As part of this Class 3 Review, the proponent is also applying for a Minor Rezone to Multi- family Residential. This rezone is available to the proponent because the underlying Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Designation is designated Mixed Residential. Mixed Residential permits a property owner to apply for a rezone to Multi -family Residential, which allows residential facilities to be proposed at this site. Based on this, the answer to this question is based on the premises that the property is zoned Multi -family Residential. This proposal is consistent with the current zoning of the property because it provides an opportunity to provide a necessary service to neighboring properties in a mixed residential neighborhood. The general area consists mostly of single-family residences with scattered duplexes throughout the area. This type of existing development meets the intent of the Mixed Residential Comprehensive Plan Designation and the Multi -family Residential Zoning District. The proposed project meets the intent of the zoning district and is consistent with the zoning of the property because the land use meets all the development standards in the zoning ordinance. No variances or adjustment of development standards are being proposed. The project meets or exceeds all property line setbacks, building height requirements, parking standards, sitescreening standards, sign standards and lot coverage standards, A project that meets the required development standards is usually consistent with the zoning of the property. This proposal provides a service need in the district that will serve the needs of the community as anticipated by the zoning district. This proposal also has a high level of visibility and easy access to a collector arterial (South 88th Avenue). Additionally, this proposal provides a service that is heavily dependent on vehicle access, discourages strip commercial development and is an infill project. RECEIVED SEP 2 8 2 017 CITY OF YAKIM, PLA!,q',Y.:3. DIV DOC. INDEX 96 E. How is your proposal consistent with uses and zoning of neighboring properties? The proposal is consistent with the uses and zoning of neighboring properties because this is a classic mixed-use neighborhood. The general area consists of older single-family residences, newer family residences, duplexes, a public school, vacant ground and even a mobile home park to the east, north of Tieton Drive. The proposed residential storage facility use is more consistent with the surrounding existing uses and zoning than a multi -family residential project because the proposed use is low -impact. It will generate less vehicle trips, will not increase school enrollment, will occupy a vacant parcel of property and will provide a necessary service to surrounding neighborhoods. Although the use is a Class 3 Use, it is more consistent with "this" neighborhood than other uses that could occur on the property. For these reasons, the proponent believes the proposal is consistent with existing land uses and zoning of the neighboring properties. F. How is your proposal in the best interest of the community? Currently, the site is a vacant lot that previously housed a fruit packing facility. The fruit packing facility was destroyed in a fire. Because the lot is vacant, illegal dumping has occurred and is an irritant to the surrounding neighbors. The proponent has indicated that he has made contact with some of the surrounding neighbors and they have stated that their preference was that something be constructed on the property to stop this nuisance from occurring. Stopping this illegal dumping from occurring within this neighborhood, alone, is a benefit to the community as a whole. Additionally, this project will convert a vacant lot into a higher property tax producing parcel of property and add needed revenue to the tax rolls. The proponent further believes this proposal is in the best interest of the community because it provides a new residential storage facility in the West Valley area. The proponent has studied the vacancy rate of residential storage facilities in West Valley and found the vacancy rate to be very low. Needless to say, existing individual residential storage units that become available in the area are quickly rented. This project proposes several different sized units which will provide a variety of unit sizes to meet the market demand. This project is in the best interest of the community because it provides a needed service in an area where a demonstrated demand for the service has been proven. This project has been designed in a fashion that promotes compatibility with the surrounding neighborhood by promoting the concept of an internal compound to prevent adverse aspects of this project from leaving the site. This project is an infill project and will provide a service in the immediate West Valley Area. For all the above reasons, the proponent believes this project is in the best interest of the community.

We gave written comments during the review process for this project, but forgot to mention dustcontrol, and wish to do 50 flOW. The hearing examiners report V. Environmental Review recommended attention be given to possibility of lead and arsenic soll contamination. A few years ago the state spent over $1,000,000 replacing contaminated topsoil at Apple Valley Elementary school. So soil contamination is a serious matter. The state and contractor did an excellent job with dust control on the school job. Similarly Evans & Sons have done an excellent job controlling dust from their large subdivision development at Summitview and g0th Avenue. Both the schooi and subdivision jobs had water trucks onsite during ali construction work, and they watered the areas every day. On the other hand we have often seen contractors do no dust control, allowing heavy dust to blow through downwind neighborhoods. West Valley gets some fierce winds, spring and summer. The Buchanan project 15 surrounded by neighborhoods. From a nuisance and possible heaith hazard standpoint, would the Council please instruct your permits staff to give special attention to dust control as part of their building permit(s) for this project. We realize that Yakima Clean Air is the responsible agency for air pollution, but the City permit could also make special mention of dust controi. We would like to note that City planning and engineering staff have done a good job, responding to our comments during the Hearings process.

Traffic, pedestrian safety, and no street lights along this part of 88'h Avenue are a longstanding neighborhood concern. The applicant will increase traffic as compared to the present vacant field, but proposes no changes or improvements to 88'h roadway or sidewalk. It would seem reasonable that any development that adds traffic to 88th should bring the roadway, sidewalk and street lighting along their frontage up to current city standards. We know that other developers in this area were required to improve roadways in their vicinity. The improvements should fit with future improvements for the entire length of 88th between Summitview and Tieton. 2. Storm runoff drainage and fire drainage along this part of 88th Avenue are a longstanding problem. The section of 88'h Avenue immediately NE of this property is low and traps natural runoff. During the warehouse fire on the property, which is mentioned in the applicants narrative, runoff from firefighting water flooded the low area of 88`11 Avenue, The firewater then ran east, across residential properties, into the Woodwinds Subdivision, completely flooding the drywell on 871h Avenue, parts of 87'h Avenue and residential property on 87thAvenue. In reviewing this application the City should consider the present drainage problem along 88thAvenue, and future drainage solutions for 88'h Avenue. It is presently possible that the NE corner of the proposed development property be reserved for a future drywell, for 88th drainage. If storage units are built on this corner this possibility will be lost. It is interesting that the applicant offers to use pavers for a very small parking area, perhaps to stay below an 80% loophole? The applicant offers injection wells; hopefully this does not mean electric pumps as the drainage system should be passive. The applicant proposes above ground drainage swails along the south side of the property, which is the high side of the property. He also proposes swails in the NW corner, a natural low area, which makes sense. The applicant has no swail in the NE corner which is also naturally low and as mentioned above would be a logical area to reserve for a future drywell for 88th Avenue. Other subdivisions in this area and Apple Valley School have all installed very large drywells for their runoff. For several years before Apple Valley School installed drywells (i.e. before 2012) the school district actually plowed, loaded and hauled snow from their parking lot. This was to prevent their melting snow / rain from flooding 88'1' and nearby streets. The applicant does not DOC. INDEX 105 address snow removal from their interior roadways. Combined snowmelt and rain should be considered, in combination, in the applicants drainage study. Thank you for considering our comments. We would like to be notified of changes in the proposed application, and of the Hearing Examiner's Decision, by email or USPS.

If you need anything further I can be reached at the number below. 509-969-7740 1 109 Maxey, Lisa From: Tammi Beam <trombone_13@hotmail.corn> Sent: Saturday, November 04, 2017 12:36 PM To: Ask Planning Subject: RZ#003-17 & CL3#009-17 My name is Tammi Beam and I am writing you on behalf of the building proposal on 408 S. 88th Avenue. I am completely against this proposal. We live behind Mr. Buchanan's property at 407 S. 90th Ave. We do want a storage facility built right behind our property that strangers will be accessing and literally be right behind our fence. Our neighborhood is a nice quiet neighborhood and if there are storage units built this will allow people to access their unit at any time of the day. This will cause disturbances at night time and for all of the dogs in our neighborhood to bark. Last year we had an incident where someone had to cross over Mr. Buchanan's property to climb over our 6 foot fence, and with a crowbar they attempted to break through our sliding glass door by breaking the seal around the glass. If it wasn't for our security system and our 4 dogs, they might have broken in. After this incident, we made inserts for all of our windows and doors for extra protection. Living in a nice neighborhood and having to do this is ridiculous already however if a storage area is built, and I have strange people right behind my backyard, it will make me, my husband, and all of my neighbors very uncomfortable and upset. Also with an elementary school right down the street from the proposed location, it isn't a good idea to build a facility that will bring strangers to our neighborhood. The kids are outside a lot and the only two things that protect them a little when they are outside is a couple of adults and a chain link fence. I am asking for you to please think about all of the people this proposal will be effecting in a negative manner. I would very surprised if anyone besides the property owner is in favor of this. Storage areas need to be near businesses, not houses! There aren't many safe neighborhoods left in Yakima. We are still one of them and this could change our status. Thank you for reading my concerns and for your time. Tammi and William Beam 407 S. 90th Ave. Sent from my iPhone DOC.

We feel that having a secure storage unit along side our property on the south and in the area, will be much better than additional housing, or habitat housing. The storage property will add security to the area as there will be security cameras mounted. It will be nice to have a very nice unit there.

INDEX 111 Maxey, Lisa From: jakeltate^]akeltate@chartecnet> Sent: Thursday, October 26, 2017 9:57 AM To: Ask Planning Subject: RZ#003-17 Q/[L3#OO9'17' Proposal to change the zoning of a 1.78 acre parcel at 408 South 88th Avenue Dear Sir or Madam: K8yname isJacob LTate. | live at4O6South 9OmAvenue, Yakima, VVA989U8.K8yphone number is5D9'96S-31O6.|anna retired school teacher. This is the second time in the almost 11 years since my home was built and I have lived in it that the above referenced parcel of land has been subject to a proposal to rezone from single-family residential to multi -family residential and commercial. I was against the proposal the first time and I am against it now. My reasons have not changed and are still valid. First, an inordinate amount of traffic is carried by 88th Avenue between Summitview and Tieton Drive (both major routes east and west) since 88th is, along with 96th avenue, the only easily accessed direct connection from Summitview to 7letonDrive|ocatedbetxveen72"«AvenueandPeorAvenue.Theo|dorchard|andbetvveen8Bmand8G`hintheanea between Summitview and Tieton Drive is now completely filled in with housing and a surprisingly large amount of residential traffic in and out of the housing district located there must use these two access streets. 88th is the closest to the business district of Yakima and catches much of the traffic in the morning and evening, in and out of the housing area. Adding more multi -family housing and a commercial business on 88th couldn't help but contribute to an already difficult traffic congestion problem at certain times of the day on that street. Second, Apple Valley Grade School is located midway between Tieton Drive and Summitview on 88th Avenue. There is still no sidewalk—on either side of the street --along that section of 88th for the children of Apple Valley and their parents to use geting to and from school. Adding more traffic on 88th would clearly present an increased risk to an already dangerous situation for the school. Come and look at the backed -up traffic near the school during drop-off and pick-up times for the school. Please don't make this extremely dangerous problem worse by adding more traffic along Q8,»( Third, Apple Valley Grade School is already overcrowded. There are several portable classroom structures there already to handle the overflow of students and there simply is no way, without major remodeling and upgrading, that the school can handle any more students. Multi -family residences would greatly increase the number of kids having to go to Apple Valley as multiple—family housing units tend to attract young families with kids. Allowing this rezoning would seriously negatively impact the school. A levy meant to replace the school with one that could handle the growing needs recently failed. Please don't burden the school with more students without addressing the housing crisis there first! Fourth, Apple Valley Grade School is part of the West Valley School District but is surrounded by housing that is part of the incorporated area of Yakima. This means that the West Valley District must supply servicesto kids thatechnically don't live in their district. West Valley School District is already struggling to provide the necessary services to its students and hitting them with an increase in students without any increase in property -tax revenue is a negative double -whammy. Please don't hurt the educational opportunities for Apple Valley's students this way. 1 I would be happy to discuss my objections with you, if you wish. Thank you for your time and consideration of my objections to the proposal, Respectfully Yours, 2 112 DOC.

Therefore, a $250.00 refund of the Traffic Capacity Analysis permit application fee is hereby approved.

This residential growth also requires growth in related services, such as quality storage facilities. After reviewing the plans for the project, we find the proposed storage to be appropriate for our neighborhood 2 A secure storage facility is a good neighbor for the Apple Valley Elementary school Vehicle traffic will be minimal, especially during the school commute hours Additionally, the storage facility will not create additional foot traffic along 88th Avenue 3 The City of Yakima will benefit from the local taxes paid by the facility Even though the facility requires minimal services from the city, the revenue stream is permanent Additionally, we wish to provide character references for the applicants, having known Gail and Jimmy Buchanan for nearly twenty years They are lifelong residents of Yakima and West Valley, and have planned and complete several construction projects, with high quality and timely completion We are confident that this project will be completed with consideration for our neighbors, and will create a needed asset for West Valley Please vote to approve this rezone Sincerely, Carl Neuman Jennifer Tate 603 S 92nd Avenue Yakima, WA 98908 509-966-3754 2
