Article VIII. DESIGN STANDARDS

These design standards are intended to achieve a variety of goals, including:

Reinforcing the architectural character of the community;

Fostering visual compatibility between adjacent uses and throughout the Pilchuck District;

Establishing relationships of buildings to the public street and sidewalk that create continuous, active, interesting, and intimate streetscapes;

Ensuring that the visual bulk of new buildings maintains a pedestrian scale to preserve a small-town feel;

Minimizing the prominence of parking within the urban landscape;

Creating certainty for property owners and developers; and

Promoting a strong sense of identity for the Pilchuck District neighborhood as a distinctive area of Snohomish.
