Section 2. Conclusions. Pursuant to Chapter 19.80 FWRC and Chapter 19.35 FWRC, and based upon the recitals and the findings set forth in Section 1, the Federal Way City Council makes the following Conclusions of Law with respect to the decisional criteria necessary for the adoption of the proposed amendments: (a) The proposed amendments are consistent with, and substantially implement the following Federal Way Comprehensive Plan goals and policies:. Goals: LUG] Create an attractive, welcoming and functional built environment. LUG3 Preserve and protect Federal Way's single- family neighborhoods. Ordinance No. 17 -834 Page 3 of 35 HG1 Preserve and protect the quality of existing residential neighborhoods and require new development to be of a scale and design that is compatible with existing neighborhood character. PUG22 Promote the recycling of solid waste materials by providing opportunities for convenient recycling and by developing educational materials on recycling, composting, and other waste reduction methods. Waste reduction and source separation are the City's preferred strategies for managing solid waste. Materials remaining after effective waste reduction and source separation should be managed in accordance with the KC- CSWMP. PUG23 Encourage and actively seek an effective regional approach to solid waste management, to leverage economies of scale and move toward similarities in services and parallel educational messaging. PUG27 Develop and implement Preferred Building Code Elements, including space allocation for several waste streams (garbage, compostables, recyclables, hazardous materials, and other process wastes). Incorporate design elements that enable access to services, both for tenants and collection service vehicle. Consider development of a preference for covered solid waste enclosures or facilities that are tied to sanitary sewer to help reduce potential surface water management issues, and perform a comprehensive analysis to determine which elements should be grandfathered versus required improvements. Policies: LUP1 Use development standards and design guidelines to maintain neighborhood character and ensure compatibility with surrounding uses. LUP3 Use design guidelines and performance standards to create attractive and desirable commercial, office and commercial /residential mixed -use developments. LUP6 Conduct regular reviews of development regulations to determine how to improve upon the permit review process. LUP13 Maintain and protect the character of existing single- family neighborhoods through strict enforcement of the City's land use regulations. LUP 14 Protect residential areas from impacts of adjacent non - residential uses. LUP22 Multifamily residential development should be designed to provide privacy and common open space. Variations in facades and rooflines should be used to add character and interest to multiple- family developments. LUP27 Use design and performance standards to integrate multifamily development into commercial developments as commercial /residential Ordinance No. 17 -834 Page 4 of 35 mixed -use development. Performance standards should focus on scale, appearance, and compatibility. LUP29 Ensure compatibility between non - residential developments and residential zones by regulating height, scale, setbacks, and buffers. HP1 High - density housing projects, with the exception of senior housing, will not be permitted in existing single - family residential neighborhoods. More moderate densities such as cottage housing are permitted. HP13 Continue to use design guidelines to ensure that new and infill developments have aesthetic appeal and minimize impacts on surrounding development. HP14 Review zoning, subdivision, and development regulations to ensure that they further housing policies, facilitate infill development and don't create unintended barriers. HP17 Continue to permit commercial /residential mixed -use development in designated commercial areas throughout the City. Develop incentive programs to ensure an adequate amount of housing is developed in these areas. (b) The proposed amendments bear a substantial relationship to the public health, safety, and welfare because they will result in a higher quality of multifamily development, while ensuring that adequate amenities such as open space and parking are provided for residents. Amendments to the Community Design Guidelines also encourage the adoption of a security program intended to promote resident safety and improve quality of life for residents. Other proposed amendments to the Community Design Guidelines are intended to reduce the impacts of large scale multifamily and senior housing development on adjoining zoning districts that permit less intensive residential or commercial uses by reducing building massing. (c) The proposed amendments are in the best interest of the residents of the City as they will improve the aesthetics of the built environment and create compatibility between different zoning districts. Additionally, the proposed text amendments would lead to more architecturally diverse developments throughout the City. Section 3.

Options used under this section shall be incorporated along the entire length of the facade, in any approved combination. Options used must meet the dimensional standards as specified herein; except, however, if more than two are used, dimensional requirements for each option will be determined on a case -by -case basis; provided, that the gross area of a pedestrian plaza may not be less than the specified minimum of 200 square feet. See FWRC 19.115.090(3) for guidelines pertaining to city center core and city center frame. (a) Facade modulation. Minimum depth: two feet; minimum width: six feet; maximum width: 60 feet. Alternative methods to shape a building, such as angled or curved facade elements, off -set planes, wing walls and terracing, will be considered; provided, that the intent of this section is met. G.$'K_4o. Incorporating modulations Figure 6 — FWRC 19.115.060(2) (b) Landscape screening. Eight- foot -wide Type II landscape screening along the base of the facade, except Type IV may be used in place of Type II for facades that are comprised of 50 percent or more window area, and around building entrance(s). For building facades that are located adjacent to a property line, some or all of the underlying buffer width required by Chapter 19.125 FWRC, Outdoors, Yards, and Landscaping, may be considered in meeting the landscape width requirement of this section.

The plaza should be clearly visible and accessible from the adjacent right -of -way. mr,.,h„ pvlei,.n * Figure 9 — FWRC 19.115.060(2) (3) Building articulation and scale. (a) Except for zero lot line townhouse development and attached dwelling units, building facades visible from rights -of -way and other public areas should incorporate methods of articulation and accessory elements in the overall architectural design, as described in subsection (3)(b) of this section.
