Master Plan Update

City of Marysville Comprehensive Plan and Development Regulations Update for the Downtown Plan Master Plan and Planned Action

Determination of Significance

and Request for Comments

on Scope of EIS

Description of Proposal:

The Proposed Action is a Master Plan and Planned Action for the Downtown Vision area, a portion of Planning Area 1 of the City's neighborhood planning areas.

The Master Plan/Planned Action will emphasize three major objectives including enhancing the setting for development consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and Downtown Vision Plan, enhancing environmental quality (notably stormwater management), and upgrading infrastructure (circulation and utilities).

Catalyst projects, including infrastructure and public facilities, will be considered within the Planned Action project approach.

Location: The planning area is approximately 182 acres and bounded by 8th Street to the north, Ebey Slough to the south, Alder Avenue to the east, and Interstate 5 to the west.

Proponent: City of Marysville

Lead agency: City of Marysville

Determination of Significance (Supplemental EIS required). The lead agency has determined this proposal is likely to have a significant adverse impact on the environment. A supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) is required under RCW 43.21C.030 (2)(c) and will be prepared. The SEIS will contain new information and analysis, but will also utilize data and analysis contained in previous documents or studies, any of which may be adopted or incorporated by reference as appropriate, according to the SEPA rules. An environmental checklist indicating likely environmental impacts can be reviewed at our offices.

SEPA/GMA Integration:

The City of Marysville has determined that this proposal is a major action under SEPA and therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) will be prepared concurrent with the development of the Master Plan. The Planned Action SEIS and Master Plan documents will combine the processes and provide supporting analysis required under both the Washington Growth Management Act (GMA) and the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) as described under Washington Administrative Code Section 197-11-210 through 197-11-235.

Phased Environmental Review:

Environmental review for the proposal is being phased pursuant to the provision of WAC 197-11-060(5). Phasing allows environmental review to focus on issues that are ready for decision while deferring consideration of items not ready for action. Prior phases of environmental review (DEIS, FEIS) focused on the Comprehensive Plan update, and development regulations for the city at large. The current phase of environmental review encompasses a supplemental EIS for the Downtown Vision area and Planned Action with anticipated development for the master plan area. Subsequent phases of environmental review may include additional supplemental EISs, Declarations of Non-significance, and/or addenda for the adoption of land use code amendments.

Scoping. Agencies, affected tribes, and members of the public are invited to comment on the scope of the supplemental EIS (SEIS). Comments may be made on the probable significant adverse impacts and scope of the SEIS. Comments may be submitted in writing to the address indicated below. The deadline for scoping comments is 5:00 p.m., May 5, 2008.
