Project Description

The proposed project is for the reduction of the May Creek Shoreline Setback   from 150’ (foot) to 112’ (foot) and category III wetland reduction to 45’(foot).

The proposal is for the consideration of a development permit for a proposed SFR  on Tax parcel # 27090600201200 located at Lat=47.860269, Long=-121.707841 within the City of Gold Bar.  The home is proposed to be placed in the outer portion of the critical area buffer, outside of any flood hazard area and within the Shoreline of the Gold Bar SMP as designated.  The proposed home has one location for construction, defined on the maps in this proposal, due to regulated setbacks, buffers and septic system location.

City regulations may require specific planting or protection at the time of building permit issuance.

The size and shape of the subject lot preclude the ability to meet the current setbacks and development requirements on this legally developed lot.

The variance, if approved, will not constitute a grant of special privilege not enjoyed by the other properties in the area, and will be the minimum necessary to afford relief.
