Project Status

The SEPA Determination and hearing notice is also scheduled to be issued in the next few weeks.  Notification will be sent to all parties of record and property owners in the area.

Time is allotted for public testimonies at the hearing and all public comments received prior to the hearing will be provided to the hearing examiner for consideration.

On June 4, 2018, the City sent the Land Use Review Letter to the applicant (see link below to access the cover letter, Substantive Review Table and related attachments).  The purpose of this letter is to inform the applicant what revision need to be made in order to meet certain codes and standards an identifies information needed in order for city staff to complete their review and make a recommendation to the hearing examiner.
