The city's planning director and SEPA official, Tim Stewart issued a determination today that the project would have "a significant impact on the environment and would require an Environmental Impact Statement to study these impacts." The city is requesting public comments on the scope of the EIS and set a date of January 16th For public hearing.

The development calls for 739 units of single and multifamily residences plus a 6000 square foot clubhouse. The development is being opposed by many in the city, especially those in the south side. The site for the proposed development is located in the northern end of the Chuckanut mountains to south of Fairhaven Park. The opposition would like to see this site preserved a for future generations in this area that is rich in biological diversity and wetlands.

The fight continues.
