Final EIS

For each potential zoning scenario selected by Council, the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) uses the same format to analyze impacts to the same elements studied in the Draft EIS. A Review Guide was prepared as a summary of the full FEIS.

145th Street Station Subarea Plan

Ordinance No. 750- Adopting Subarea Plan and Amending Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map

Ordinance No. 751 – Amending Official Zoning Map

Ordinance No. 752 – Adopting Planned Action Ordinance

A planned action is a development project whose impacts have been addressed by an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) associated with a plan for a specific geographic area before individual projects are proposed. A planned action involves detailed SEPA review and preparation of EIS documents in conjunction with sub-area plans, consistent with RCW 43.21C.031and WAC 197-11-164 through WAC 197-11-172. Such up-front analysis of impacts and mitigation measures then facilitates environmental review of subsequent individual development projects.

Ordinance No. 756 - Adopting Development Code Regulations for 145th and 185th Street Station Subareas

On August 18, the Planning Commission recommended splitting draft Development Code regulations out of Ordinance No. 751 into a new ordinance because regulations would apply to both light rail station subareas.
