Project summary

The applicant is requesting to amend the comprehensive plan designation and zoning from Commercial with Community Commercial zoning (CC) to Urban Low Density Residential with Residential (R 1-6) zoning on parcel 154246000.


The applicant owns parcel (154246000) that is designated Commercial (CC). Parcel (154246000) is 7.56 acres and is located southwest of the NE 152nd Ave. and NE 93rd St. intersection. This proposed comprehensive plan designation and zone change would allow this parcel to develop into low-density single family residential dwellings (R1-6). The area was brought into the Vancouver Urban Growth Area in 1994 with a Commercial Comprehensive Plan designation and C-3 (now CC) zoning. There has been significant residential development in the Orchards area in the last 10 years. The site is located along NE 152nd Ave between Padden Parkway and NE 99th St. and is just north of the Fly for Fun airport. The airport is privately owned and houses 12 single engine airplanes.

The applicant has Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval for an RV Storage facility that was issued in June of 2018. The approval requires a fully complete building application be submitted within seven years of preliminary approval that was issued in February of 2018. The site abuts NE 152nd Ave to the east, an existing private airport to the south, NE 150th Avenue to the west, and NE 93rd St to the north. The neighboring parcels to the north and west are zoned single family residential (R1-10 and R1-6, respectively), the abutting parcel to the south is zoned Airport (A), and the neighboring parcels to the east are single family residential (R1-6), and Public Facilities (PF). York Elementary located across NE 152nd Avenue is the singular parcel zoned PF.
