We have updated our preliminary staff recommendations for proposed pedestrian retail areas. We have also published notice of a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) on the proposed changes, as a part of the required State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review. A DNS means that we don’t think there will be any negative environmental impacts caused by our proposal. The official SEPA comment period runs from September 18 through October 2 of 2014.
DPD updated three Tips:Tip 121, Criteria for Consistently Prepared Applicant (CPA) Submittals; Tip 213B, Application Requirements for Lot Boundary Adjustments; and Tip 229, Residential Use of a Floating Home, House Barge or Vessel. A draft Directors Rule, Clarifying the application of Design Review thresholds for congregate residences, is available for public comment.
