17.280.010 Purpose.

The intent of the low-intensity commercial zoning is to promote mixed uses – retail, hotel, office, services, or attached residential in horizontal or small-scale vertical patterns – and commercial uses designed to maximize shoreline views and allow streamside and shoreline public access where appropriate. A new development pattern reduces impervious surfaces, promotes marine waterfront and creek restoration, promotes landscape and streetscape improvements, promotes pedestrian safety and comfort, and improves vehicular access.
