DEVELOPMENT: Six-house Puget Ridge project gets land-use approval

From today’s city-circulated Land Use Information Bulletin: A notice of land-use approval for a six-house project to be added on a site that currently holds one house on Puget Ridge, at 6550 21st SW [map]. You can read the decision here. The site is just over an acre. The city website says off-street parking is planned for 12 vehicles to go along with the six 2-story houses. The decision also notes that seven “exceptional” trees are on the site and that plans call for preserving all of them. The decision can be appealed – this notice explains how – with the deadline set at April 12th.

    We’ll see how long the exceptional tree preservation lasts.  Developers always find a way around the restrictions, including “accidental” damage that results in the loss of the tree.  The fines (if any) are not enough to deter this behavior.

      Actually one developer (not WS) was fined $99,000 recently, according to a City Council tree update last week, which I hope to write about.

      No builder I know would ever do that. The fines are enormous. Oh, and doing that would cause huge delays, which would cost more than the fines would ever be.

Sorry, comment time is over.
