Public Hearing - Pierce County Hearing Examiner

Thursday, August 13, 2020

Administrative Appeal: Hope Recovery Center
Application: 907137
Applicant/Appellant: Hope Recovery Center, represented by Matthew Sweeney
Appellant: No on HRC, represented by Ben Cushman
Planner: Ty Booth,
Request: Appeal an April 6, 2020, County Administrative Official determination that the proposed Hope Recovery Center (drug/alcohol in-patient counseling treatment facility) is NOT a Group Home use type in the Zoning Code (allowed within the Key Peninsula Rural 10 (R10) zone with a Conditional Use Permit). This is a continuation of a prior appeal and public hearing that occurred on June 5, 2019, in which the Hearing Examiner concluded that the County was incorrect in previously determining that the proposal is a Community and Cultural Services, Level 3, use type in the Zoning Code. The proposed site is located at 4706 Key Peninsula Highway NW, within the Key Peninsula Community Plan area and R10 zone classification, in Council District 7. Note, the purpose of this appeal hearing is only for the Hearing Examiner to determine whether the County classified the proposed use correctly in the Zoning Code (which led to submittal of a Conditional Use Permit). This hearing is not to consider whether the Conditional Use Permit should be approved/denied.
