ORDINANCE NO. 390

 

 

AN ORDINANCE OF THE TOWN OF SOUTH PRAIRIE, PIERCE COUNTY, WASHINGTON APPROVING THE CROSS CREEK SHORT PLAT.

 

 

Whereas, Mike Goode, Willowbrook Construction, has applied for a short plat of Pierce County Assessor's parcel #253050-048-0, legal description attached hereto and incorporated by reference as Exhibit "1", and which short plat is depicted in the site plan, Exhibit "2", and

 

 

Whereas, a public hearing was held before the Town Council on April 4, 2000, and

 

Whereas, the Town Planner, Mark Kask, reported that the criterion for the approval of a short plat had been met, and

 

Whereas, having heard testimony the Council recessed the City Council meeting of April 4, 2000 to April 11, 2000 to consider this ordinance, and

 

Whereas, the subject property has some construction on it that will be removed to comply with the configuration of the short plat, and

Whereas, this property has been subject to litigation, and

 

 

Whereas, allegations have been made by a neighboring property owner that the property owner neighboring has priority with respects to utilities and if utilities are allowed to the property subject to the short plat he may file a cause of action to enjoin utility hookup alleging that he has priority, and


Whereas, the Town received correspondence from the Washington State Department of Ecology dated March 31, 1998 attached and incorporated by reference as Exhibit "3" which authorized connecting three homes, and

 

Whereas, this short plat modifies a proposed eight lot long plat wherein this short plat changes the proposed 8 lot long plat to a 4 lot short plat wherein there will be no homes on the west side of the roadway that enters the plat which will have the affect of protecting the South Prairie Creek, and

 

Whereas, the applicant has proposed improvements, such as a bioswale on the west side of the road that will enhance the water quality that will enter South Prairie Creek, and

 

Whereas, the applicant has stated that they will remove the foundations and all other items of construction from the west side of the road and will replant and reseed, leaving it in a natural configuration and will provide a seeded biofiltration swale, and

 

Whereas, the Town Council approved a variance that is consistent with improvements to water quality by allowing a variance on April 4, 2000 to eliminate the requirement that the applicant put sidewalks on the west side of the road, and

 

Whereas, the road serving the four lot short plat shall be a private road with a 5 foot sidewalk on the east side of the road, adjacent to the homes, together with curb, gutter and two 12 foot driving lanes with a 6 foot shoulder for storm drainage, and

 

Whereas, the sidewalk on the east side shall run parallel to the private street from the last lot to the south to SR 162, and


Whereas, the short plat is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and has a positive environmental affect with the improvements to be made on the west side of the private street, and

Now, therefore, the Town Council of the Town of South Prairie, Pierce County, Washington do ordain as follows:

Section 1: The Cross Creek Short Plat, legally described on Exhibit "1" set forth on the site plan Exhibit "2" is hereby approved with the conditions as set forth on the findings of fact above.

Section 2: If any provision of this ordinance is determined to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall remain in force and affect.

Section 3: This Ordinance shall take effect and be in force five (5) days from and after its passage, approval and publication as required by law.

Dear Mayor Ross and Council Members:

 

Re: Order No. DE 94WQ-S259, Third Amendment - Sewer Moratorium

 

We have reviewed your request by letter, dated March 9, 1998, to connect three homes built under permits that were issued before the sewer moratorium was imposed.

 

As you pointed out, the South Prairie wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) has operated in almost perfect compliance for the past two years. Total suspended solids (TSS) was the primary parameter of concern, and your monthly Discharge Monitoring Reports indicate that the treatment plant has not violated permitted effluent limitations for TSS since June of 1995. In fact, South Prairie is a candidate to receive a compliance award from the Department of Ecology because of your outstanding compliance with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit No. WA0040479 for 1997.

 

In light of your continued compliance with permitted limitations, we agree to granting the aforementioned homes an exception to the moratorium. We will also be in touch concerning the Town's compliance award.

 

All correspondence related to this document should be directed to Kathleen Emmett, Enforcement Specialist, Department of Ecology, Southwest Regional Office, P.O. Box 47775, Olympia, Washington 98504-7775. If you have any questions concerning the content of this document, please call Kathleen Emmett at (360) 407-6281.:KE:cg(46\wq) Enclosure

 

 

 

Sincerely,
