A. If a proposed land use is not specifically listed in a land use table, the City Planner shall determine whether the land use will be allowed in a land use designation. The City Planner shall make that determination based on consistency with the purposes of Title 14 SMC and the Comprehensive Plan, considering the following factors:

1. The physical characteristics of the use and its supporting structures, including scope, traffic, hours of operation, and other impacts.

2. Whether the use is compatible with other uses permitted in the land use designation.

B. The City Planner shall issue a written interpretation formalizing the determination, in order to make a record of the decision and establish a clear precedent for similar future occurrences. The issuance of an interpretation by the City Planner may be appealed in accordance with the provisions of SMC 14.20.170.
