The purpose of the code amendments is to establish a new Chapter 18.13 Multi-Family Infill Form Based Code Overlay (MFI-FBC). The code helps implement the 2018 Comprehensive Plan and complies with the Growth Management Act. This overlay permits context-sensitive gentle densification on all lots served by sewer within four existing Langley zoning districts: RS5000, RS72000, Residential Mixed and Neighborhood Business zone districts.

The MFI-FBC increase alternatives for dwellings through flexible and innovative design, greater residential availability and affordability. The intent of this chapter is to establish context-sensitive regulations that complement regulations in the underlying zoning districts. The MFI-FBC overlay district honors the village character of Langley, respects the underlying districts, protects vital critical areas and encourages affordable housing near jobs.

All interested persons may provide verbal and written testimony during the hearing. Submit written comments to City Hall prior to 4:00 pm on May 4, 2021. At the conclusion of the public hearing the Planning Advisory Board will consider the matter and issue a recommendation to the City Council for approval, approval with conditions, or denial of the draft ordinance.

You can view the draft ordinances at City Hall, at 112 Second Street, Langley WA. by contacting Brigid to schedule an appointment.
