The City of Everett has issued a non-project State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) checklist for site selection.
The City has determined that the selection of a site for the proposed action will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. Future environmental impact analysis will be evaluated once a specific site is selected. An environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c) based on review of an expanded environmental checklist, which is available on the proposed project website.
This DNS is issued under WAC 197-11-340(2) and the comment period will end on Jan. 18, 2021. The responsible official will reconsider the DNS based on timely comments and may retain, modify, or, if significant adverse impacts are likely, withdraw the DNS. If the DNS is retained, it will be final after the expiration of the comment deadline. The Everett City Council will be briefed on the site selection analysis and consider a resolution to proceed with further investigation of one or more of the sites during a public meeting tentatively scheduled for Feb. 17, 2021.
