The Woods at Viewcrest

Project Description

The city received applications for a new residential subdivision on a vacant 37.7-acre site located generally in the 300 Block of Viewcrest Road and Area 7 of the Edgemoor Neighborhood. The submitted proposal consists of 38 single-family lots.

The lots are proposed to be accessed from both Viewcrest and Sea Pines Roads and served by public water and sewer from existing infrastructure in Viewcrest Road. Stormwater management is proposed onsite with direct discharge to Chuckanut Bay.

Application Materials

The Critical Areas and Shoreline Substantial Development applications are administrative decisions reviewed through a Type I or Type II review process.

The Preliminary Plat, Land Division Variance and Shoreline Conditional Use applications require separate public hearings before the Hearing Examiner through a Type III-A or Type III-B review process. The Street Vacation is processed through the procedures outlined in Chapter 35.79 RCW with the Hearing Examiner making a recommendation to the City Council for a final decision.

The Hearing Examiner will hold individual public hearings to take testimony on the Preliminary Plat, Land Division Variance, Shoreline Conditional Use and Street Vacation applications. The Hearing Examiner issues the final decision on the Preliminary Plat and Land Division Variance, and forwards a recommendation on the Shoreline Conditional Use Permit to the Department of Ecology for final review and approval and issues a recommendation to the City Council on the Street Vacation.
