A. Any person seeking the use of a binding site plan to divide the person’s property for the purpose of sale, lease or transfer of ownership of commercially or industrially zoned property is required to apply for, complete and have approved a binding site plan prior to any property division, as provided in Chapter 58.17 RCW and as required by this chapter.
B. The site which is subject to the binding site plan shall consist of one or more contiguous lots legally created.
C. The site which is subject to the binding site plan may be reviewed independently for fully developed sites; or, concurrently with a commercial site development permit application for undeveloped land; or in conjunction with a valid commercial site development permit.
D. The binding site plan process merely creates or alters lot lines and does not authorize substantial improvements or changes to the property or the uses thereon. Improvements shall be authorized through separate zoning and building permit processes. New improvements shall be incorporated into the binding site plan as appropriate. (Ord. 591 § 59, 2015; Ord. 60 § 1, 1996.)
