Input accepted until June 24 on proposed Sequim development



SEQUIM — A proposed 98-lot single family home development, Legacy Ridge, spanning 41.8 acres, is in the public comment period through June 24.

The preliminary plat/major subdivision application was submitted by iDevelopNW and PACE Engineers Inc. of Kirkland, representing Irvin Boyd.

It is west of Reservoir Road, south of East Silberhorn Road and east of Falcon Road in the city limits.

The proposed project combines South Seventh Avenue from Silberhorn Road to Reservoir Road, which currently are disconnected.

Public comment

Public comments can be emailed to Charisse Deschenes, senior planner for the city of Sequim, at [email protected] or mailed through the Postal Service to City of Sequim, Department of Community Development (DCD), 152 W. Cedar St., Sequim, WA 98382.

A neighborhood meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, July 21, at the Sequim Transit Center, 190 W. Cedar St.

A public hearing before the Sequim City Council has not been set.

Planning since 2012

Deschenes said Legacy Ridge has been in the preliminary planning stages since 2012-13.

An application in January 2015 was put on hold to review some aspects, such as vehicle accessibility. This latest application was submitted April 27.

Deschenes said the property contains 13.4 acres of open space and critical wetland and buffer areas, as well as slopes, which the development goes around.

Included in the proposal is a walking trail and 2.4 acres of active open space and parks.

Deschenes said the average lot size would be 6,978 square feet.

The city’s 2015 comprehensive plan update requires a minimum lot size to be 5,400 square feet.

The developer’s traffic study found that Legacy Ridge would generate about 933 average daily trips through the area. Impact fees are estimated at $244,118.
