8.         OLYMPIC DRIVE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT

 

Staff ReportCity Attorney Kaser presented a proposed development agreement between the City of University Place and Joe and Jennifer Guzzo regarding the installation of a storm line across their property located in Olympic Drive. He indicated that the Guzzos are in the process of breaking ground on a single-family residence in a location across which the City has long sought to put a storm line for topography related concerns.  The staff-negotiated development agreement would allow the Guzzos to build the line in exchange for the City’s waiver of permit and impact-related fees, the reimbursement of projected-related expenditures up to $5,000, and for the execution of a professional services agreement with their contractor to also manage the City’s portion of the project.

 

The Growth Management Act allows local government to enter into development agreements, following a public hearing, to address the development standards upon a project.

STUDY SESSION

 

10.      SHORELINE MASTER PROGRAM UPDATE

 

Principal Planner Boers provided an overview on the Shoreline Master Program (SMP) periodic review process and compliance with the Shoreline Management Act (SMA) and State Department of Ecology requirements.  He presented the proposed amendments to the City’s Shoreline Master Program which are minor and procedural in nature and would not result in significant changes to  how shoreline properties are regulated.

 

The Planning Commission and the Department of Ecology held a joint public hearing on June 6, 2018 and ultimately recommended approval of the draft amendments. Staff recommends that Council conduct a public hearing on the proposed SMP amendments once it has received Ecology’s initial compliance determination.

 

The City is required under the Shoreline Management Act (SMA) to review, and if necessary, revise its Shoreline Master Program (SMP) at least once every eight years.  The SMA governs the use and development of shorelines of the state to protect environmental resources of state shorelines; preserve and enhance public access and enjoyment opportunities; and give priority to uses that require a shoreline location.  The SMP implements the SMA and serves as the City’s and State’s plan for managing shoreline areas; establishes goals, policies and regulations for shoreline protection, use and development; and establishes a plan for restoring the shoreline in those areas where it has been degraded.

 

11.      2019-2018 COUNCIL GOALS AND OUTCOMES DISCUSSION

 

Council reviewed its prioritized lists goals and outcomes for 2019-2020 and discussed how Council would like to proceed with the next step.  Based on Council discussion at its June 11 meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Belleci inquired whether it is still Council’s intent to proceed with having the top five items move forward as priority items as goals for staff to work on, subject to budget.  The remaining items, while not appearing on the official document, would be addressed as items of action.         

 

Given the time constraints on the development and planning of item #3 on the list, Mayor Pro Tem Belleci inquired if there was an interest in creating a Council sub-committee (consisting of 2 – 3 councilmembers with citizens and business community groups) to develop plans, ideas and budget for this celebration.  Council consented to creating two sub-committees to work on/address (1) the 25-year citywide celebration and (2) the crafting of the community vision for the next long-term planning horizon.  Mayor Pro Tem Belleci, Councilmembers Figueroa, McCluskey and Grassi expressed interest in serving on the sub-committees.  

 

Staff was directed to prepare the necessary legislations for Council consideration under consent agenda.

 

12.      ADJOURNMENT

 

The meeting adjourned at 7:21 p.m.  No other action was taken.
