PROUDLY SERVING MEMBERS THROUGHOUT CHELAN, DOUGLAS & OKANOGAN COUNTIES
Recently, Planning Manager for the City of Wenatchee--Glen DeVries--sent BNCW the following message:
On August 11, 2016, the City of Wenatchee made a number of limited changes to city code specified in Ordinance No. 2016-22. Included within these changes were two definition revisions to address several concerns within the prior zoning code. These included a revised definition for lot coverage and a revised definition for rear yard.
The change to the rear yard definition will provide clarity for irregularly shaped or triangular lots with respect to the measurement and application of a rear yard setback. The change to the lot coverage standard will provide a change in how lot coverage is measured, more consistent with the standards of surrounding jurisdictions providing that the measurement is measured horizontally from the outside of the external walls or supporting members of all primary and accessory structures. Eaves extending greater than two feet from the external wall will be calculated in the total lot coverage.
