Parking Lot Landscape Review

In-house review by the Planning Department is required when any commercial surface parking lot or accessory parking lot of five spaces or greater is proposed in any zoning district other than M1, M2 or the waterfront districts. Newly constructed lots and existing lots proposed for expansion must comply with the landscaping standards, which call for planted buffers and street trees along adjacent public rights-of-way, as well as for interior lot landscaping provisions. Parking garages are also subject to review.

Review is typically initiated through the L&I permit application process. There is no fee for this review.
