The Woodinville City Council addressed more changes to the Woodinville community at the April 16th City Council meeting. Public comment included comments on the use of renewable, green energy to the beginning of the 26th year of the Woodinville Farmer’s Market at DeYoung Park. The developers from Woodinville Hotel Partners LLC made their appeal to increase the height of the hotel to be built at the Wine Village.
The Council agreed to ask the Planning Commission to study the proposed changes to the tourist business zone building height. The code currently states that buildings can only be 49 feet tall while the developers would like a development agreement that would allow the hotel to be 67 feet in height. The Planning Commission will make recommendations for the Council to consider after they analyze the request.
Sen. Christine Rolfes, D-Bainbridge Island, wrote the 2019-21 budget as the chair of the Ways and Means Committee.
Snohomish County’s Department of Planning and Development Services (PDS) announced an on-line survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PZBGSXZ to gather public input for the Southwest Urban Growth Area Boundary Planning Study. Obtaining feedback from those who live, work, and play in Snohomish County about their quality of life and improvements they would like to see is at the heart of everything the county does. The Southwest Urban Growth Area (SWUGA) Boundary Planning Study (BPS) is no different. It is a high-level study of existing conditions and opportunities and constraints which can inform future planning choices. As part of the BPS, an online survey is available until April 26 for community members in the SWUGA BPS area, and outside the area, to give their feedback.
The City of Woodinville held an open house on April 9th to share the design of the civic campus and to answer any questions. Representatives from Main Street Development Group and City Manager Brandon Buchanan spoke about the City’s plans to close on the property this week and start demolition and construction by the end of April.
One of the most common questions received was related to construction impacts to the Woodinville Sports Fields parking lot. In order to make space for truck ingress and egress and accommodate construction parking, the north half of the fields parking lot will be closed Monday-Friday, 5am-4pm, likely through the summer of 2020. The south half of the parking lot will remain fully open each day. The full parking lot will be open in the evenings to accommodate field users and special events like Celebrate Woodinville.
There will be other temporary impacts during construction. The public restrooms below the Carol Edwards Center, along with the walkway along the east side of the fields, will be closed for the duration of the project. Temporary restrooms will be located at the southwest corner of the fields for field users. The small parking lot at Woodin Creek Park will also be closed for the duration of construction and will serve as temporary storage for equipment and materials necessary to maintain nearby parks and sports fields.
