The Snohomish County Hearing Examiner has denied BSRE Point Wells LLC's (BSRE) request for an extension of the expiration date of its urban center development applications.

The hearing examiner has also granted the Snohomish County Planning and Development Services Department's request to deny BSRE's applications without an environmental impact statement because the applications are in substantial conflict with the county code.

Full hearing examiner decision

The Sno-King Coalition reviews the possible next steps:

"BSRE can appeal the decision to the County Council and through the Courts, but they will have to prove that the Hearing Examiner made an error in reviewing the facts of the case; that will be a difficult standard to meet.

"BSRE could also submit a new application for a somewhat smaller Urban Village development, but that would require an agreement with both Shoreline and Woodway on how traffic and other impacts would be handled. That agreement would be required before the application could be submitted, which gives both Shoreline and Woodway more control over the size of the development."

This is very good news for Shoreline. A long hard battle that might not have been won if it were not for the long hours of research and advocacy by individuals living in Richmond Beach.
