Notice of Application - Shoreline Variance
File Number: 2017-SSD-0001
Proponent: Eric Drivdahl, Gelotte Hommas Architecture on behalf of Limantzakis Properties LLC
Location of proposal:
15514 Beach Dr Ne
Lake Forest Park, WA 98155
parcel # 6744701250 

Proposal: To construct a roof over an existing outdoor patio area within the allowable minimum shoreline setback. This requires a variance to the Shoreline Master Program (SMP) because the proposed structure would be located closer to Lake Washington that the SMP allows. The patio would be attached to an existing non-conforming single family home. The applicant has proposed to remove impervious surface, install native plantings, and remove a section of the house and a hot tub structure as mitigation. The proposal, as a whole, would reduce the existing impervious surface area from 87.2% of the lot to a proposed 80.9%, and reduce the building coverage from 36.3% of the lot to 35.98%. An ecological assessment from a qualified biologist found that the project is likely to have a net-positive effect on the shoreline function in the area.

Environmental Review: After review of the proposal and the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), the City has determined that the proposal is categorically exempt under WAC 197-11-800 (6) (e). A statement of exemption from SEPA was issued on March 15, 2017. This information is available to the public upon request.

Public Comment: Interested parties may comment on this Type-I Shoreline Variance application by submitting written comments to Lake Forest Park City Hall, 17425 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155 or via email to no later than the close of the open record public hearing.

Materials related to this proposal may be reviewed at City Hall Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.

on behalf of Cheryl Greene Trust

Location of proposal:
17759 Beach Dr Ne
Lake Forest Park, WA 98155

Notice of Decision for Commercial Site Development Permit and Major Sensitive Area Work Permit (Buffer Reduction)
File Numbers: 2015-CSD-0002
Commercial Site Development

2015-SAMJ-0008
Major Sensitive Area Work Permit
for Buffer Reduction

Proponent: AML Construction
Location of proposal:
3803 NE 155th Street
Lake Forest Park, WA 98155
parcel # 674470-1588

Approved Project: A mixed-use project consisting of three stories of wood-framed construction over one story of on-grade concrete-structured parking. Project includes 14 residential units, approximately 600 square feet of office space, and 24 parking spaces. The total site area equals 30,514 square feet and the gross floor area is proposed to be 25,285 square feet. This approval allows the steep slope buffer on the site to be reduced to a minimum distance of 25 feet from the edge of the steep slope, with an additional 15 foot building setback. The proposed building will be built on augured concrete pilings driven into native earth as recommended by the geotechnical engineer. The site storm drainage system has been designed to minimize the impact of the proposed development on the existing drainage system along NE 155th Street. Stormwater generated by the proposed impervious surfaces of the project will be managed via a concrete detention vault under the building that is equipped with Level 3 Flow Control. This flow control standard is the most restrictive provided by the King County Stormwater Design Manual.

Conditions of Approval:
• Soil compaction is required, according to Geo Group NW, Inc. report dated July 9, 2015
• During construction, water must not accumulate in the following areas:
o Any place where building foundations, slabs, or pavements are to be constructed.
o In proximity to the steep slope, nor may the water flow onto the steep slope.
• A geo-tech must be onsite during construction for the following guidance:
o To evaluate suitability of material proposed to be structural fill.
o To monitor the placement and compaction of structural fill.
• Highly visible temporary survey markings shall be installed along the sensitive area boundary.
• After approval by the City, the sensitive area tract must be recorded at the King County Recorder’s Office prior to building permit issuance.

Environmental Review: After review of the proposal and the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), the City issued a mitigated Determination of Non-significance (MDNS) on November 17, 2016.

Additional Permits Required: Building Permit, Arborist Review Tree Removal Permit

Additional Information: Additional information may be obtained by contacting the Lake Forest Park Planning Department at (206) 368-5440 or at the City’s Notices and Announcements webpage (cityoflfp.com/index.aspx?nid="313)."

Lake Forest Park, WA 98155
Parcel # 401990-0176

Proposal: Relocation of the McKinnon Creek pumping station to an empty lot zoned single-family residential (RS-10) in order to continue providing an adequate level of water service.

Date of Permit Application: March 8, 2016
Date of Notice of Decision: June 16, 2016

Approved Proposal: Replacement of two existing water-powered boatlifts with two solar-powered boatlifts. The new boatlifts are less than 15 feet in length and smaller than the existing ones and will therefore provide greater sunlight penetration to the bottom of the lake. This proposal has been determined to be exempt from the SSD process since replacement is a common method for repairing boatlifts. No further permits are required for this action.

Environmental Review: After review of the proposal and the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), the City has determined that the proposal is categorically exempt under WAC 197-11-800 (3). A statement of exemption from SEPA was issued on June 13, 2016. This information is available to the public upon request.

Appeals: This Type-III decision may be appealed to the City hearing examiner.

The proposed replacement will have a rock density of no less than 160 lbs per cubic foot and will be backfilled with 2- to 6-inch crushed rock.

Withdrawal - SEPA Determination of Non-Significance (mDNS)

Description of proposal: The project proponent (applicant) is proposing to construct a mixed-use project consisting of 4 stories of wood-framed construction over two stories of concrete-structured parking. Project includes 34 apartment units and approximately 700 square feet of office space. The total site area equals 30,514 square feet and the gross floor area is proposed to be 53,517 square feet. A buffer reduction was granted (based on geotechnical, civil engineer, and biologist analysis) to allow the proposed structure to be built no closer than forty feet to the edge of the ravine. The proposed project is located approximately 90 feet east of Bothell Way (SR 522), in Lake Forest Park, Washington.

 

On February 29, 2016 an MDNS was issued for the project. As a result of public comments received after the MDNS was published, City staff conducted additional research into drainage problems downstream from the project location. Newly discovered documents indicate the proposal’s probable significant adverse impact.
