Sequim: Downtown plan set for public hearing

SEQUIM — A public hearing on the downtown sub-area plan will be held during the City Council’s meeting on Sept. 23.

Council members agreed to the public hearing after city Planning Director Dennis LeFevre called the proposed ordinance “a pretty good plan.”

LeFevre said many recommendations made in the plan are already being implemented downtown.

He said the plan provides a “pedestrian friendly” atmosphere.

“I think the plan adds vibrancy and brings life to the downtown core,” LeFevre said.

The sub-area plan creates two zoning districts, one for office commercial — which acts as a buffer with residential uses — and the other for downtown commercial.

Ground floor residential uses are prohibited by the plan, but people would be allowed to live in apartments above retail businesses.

There are two apartments offering living spaces above retail stores.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23 in the community center, 190 W. Cedar St.
