Public Hearing - Pierce County Hearing Examiner

Wednesday, June 3, 2020

Major Amendment to Preliminary Plat: Canyon Rim Estates
Application: 908878
Applicant: Clint Myers, Northwest Cascade
Planner: Ty Booth,
Request: In 2011, the Pierce County Hearing Examiner approved the Preliminary Plat (subdivision) of an existing 39-acre surface mine into 16 single-family residential lots and three tracts. The lots were going to be located at the bottom of the mine. The subdivision has not yet been built. The Applicant now seeks a Major Amendment to allow the lots to be relocated to the top of the mine (along 62nd Ave. E). On the west side of 62nd Ave. E., 10 feet of additional road right-of way would be dedicated to the County, street improvements (including a paved pathway) would occur, and every two (of the 16 lots) would share an access. Each lot would be 27,180 sq. ft. in size while the vast majority of the site would consist of three tracts of land for set-aside/open space, wetlands/creek, and septic drainfields. The former mine would continue to be reclaimed in accordance with State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) requirements. Water service would be from Summit Water Company. The site is in the Rural Separator (RSep) zone classification and Mineral Resource Overlay (MRO), in the Mid-County Community Plan area, located south of 72nd St. E. / 72nd St. Ct. E. and west of 62nd Ave. E., in Council District #5.
