Tiny House Motel Project

An application for an 8-unit motel at 120 Willow Avenue has been approved with conditions by the Planning Director. As proposed, each unit will be a standalone “tiny house”.  A ninth unit will be used for a lobby/office. The proposed development includes utilities, landscaping, off-street parking, and sidewalk improvements. The property is located in the Mixed Use zone, where hotel/motel uses are allowed with an Site Development Plan (SDP).  The SDP was submitted for review in spring of 2019 and has been found to comply with all relevant regulations and standards of the Snohomish Municipal Code. 


The current approval is related to the site plan. Review of the tiny house structures will take place later when building permits are applied for. 


The following images were provided by the applicant. These images are conceptual in nature and are intended to inform interested parties what the structures might look like inside and out.  With the building permit applications more detailed drawings will be provided.  Those drawings could differ from these conceptual images.  The building plans will be reviewed for compliance with the International Building Code and the International Fire Code.  What amenities (e.g. kitchenettes, bed size) the developers offer in each unit are up to them and not subject to any City requirements.
