Sidewalk initiative, Point Wells update at September Richmond Beach Community Association meeting

Saturday, September 8, 2018

The finer points of two dramatic over-the-summer developments for Richmond Beach will be the topics at the September RBCA meeting.

A team from the City of Shoreline will explain what to expect now that 20th Avenue NW from Richmond Beach Road to the Saltwater Park has been put near the top of the priority list for sidewalk improvements.

In June, the City Council decided that, for all the scientific fairness applied to apportioning sidewalk repairs throughout the whole city, common sense told them that the heavily trammeled gateway to the city’s namesake attraction needed immediate attention.

Also in June, a judge in Snohomish County ruled that the developers of a proposed massive condominium complex at Point Wells were woefully deficient and egregiously tardy in their plans and permit applications, and the project was rejected.

In August, an appeal on several points of the judge’s ruling was largely rejected, but some question remains whether the developer, BSRE, can re-apply and under what rules. Local expert Tom McCormick will be on hand to explain and answer questions.

The meeting is open to all. It will be in the basement of the Richmond Beach Congregational Church, at the corner of Richmond Beach Road and 15th Avenue NW, at 7:30pm on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. Come a half hour early to mingle and enjoy refreshments.
