[ARCHIVED] Public Hearing on Zoning Text Amendments

The Mountlake Terrace Planning Commission is holding a public hearing to consider minor amendments to the city’s zoning code (Title 19) on Monday, April 26 at 7:00 p.m. The Commission is expected to make a recommendation to the City Council for final consideration in May.

The amendments include adding temporary use provisions for locating food trucks; allowing for covered porches and patios in current front yard setbacks with limitations on height and enclosures; and adding allowances for carports in all residential zones. The standards allowing carports will include setbacks behind the front façade of dwellings and fully enclosed storage not visible from the street right-of-way or adjoining properties.

Additionally, an amendment is proposed to the use table in MTMC 19.50.040, to allow for medical and health care uses on specifically identified ground-level block frontages or designated corners. They are currently identified as not being allowed.

Any person interested in these proposals may testify via Zoom during the public hearing meeting and be heard in support of, or in opposition to, this proposal. Written comments regarding the meeting may also be submitted to the Planning Commission until 4:00 p.m. on April 26, 2021, to the attention of Lisa Plancich via email at, and will become part of the permanent record.
