41 lots proposed for Laidlaw


A neighborhood meeting was held in May for two separate but linked developments proposed for an area north of Laidlaw and east of Saltzman. The land, zoned R-6 (5-6 lots per acre), is in the Bonny Slope West area. Hartwell Homes, LLC is proposing 20 lots, and Skykomish is proposing 21 lots. Access will be a public street from Laidlaw.

Neighborhood meetings are required by Washington County as a preliminary step in the land development process. Nearby neighbors, and the CPO, are invited to attend to learn about plans and make comments. They can often provide information that is helpful in ensuring that neighbors aren’t unduly affected, and also letting developers know about conditions that may not be apparent. In this meeting, neighbors brought up concerns about streetlights, water runoff, and nearby forested areas.

Once the development application is submitted to the county, a formal comment period is announced. Plans often change slightly between the Neighborhood meeting and the final submission. NW Engineers is representing both owners.
