Administrative Interpretations

The purpose of an Administrative Interpretation is for the Community Development Director to make an interpretation of the provisions of the zoning code, clarifying conflicting or ambiguous wording or the scope or intent of the provisions of the zoning code. A request for a zoning code interpretation must relate to a specific site, land use district, use or application within the City of Stanwood. An interpretation of the provisions of the zoning code may not be used as, or considered to be, an amendment to the zoning code.

An interpretation of the zoning code issued under Stanwood Municipal Code section 17.80.115 shall have the same effect as any provision of the zoning code.

An interpretation of the zoning code remains in effect until rescinded in writing by the Community Development Director.
