The city may allow buffer width averaging; provided, that the total area on the lot contained within the buffer is not less than that required within the standard buffer, and that averaging will not reduce the critical area functions. The city may require buffer width averaging in order to provide protection to a particular portion of a critical area which is especially sensitive, or to incorporate existing significant vegetation or habitat areas into the buffer. Buffer width averaging shall not adversely impact the functions and values of the critical area. The adjusted minimum buffer width shall not be less than seventy-five percent of the standard buffer width. (Ord. 3676-19 § 22, 2019.)
