Sequim council votes down housing development motion
July 13th, 2004 - 10:30am


(Sequim) – The Sequim City council won’t reconsider a proposed housing development in Sequim. The council last night unanimously denied a motion to re look at the proposed Highlands at Sequim housing development. The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and state Department of Fish and Wildlife filed the motion for the council to reconsider approval of the new development. The tribe and state cited a failure to inform interested parties on time and consider the effect the project would have on the local elk herd. Sequim city attorney Craig Ritchie told the council he saw no legal errors made in the process and the council was within its rights to deny the motion.
The council also talked about a new roundabout traffic element at River road and Washington Street. Mayor Walt Schubert proposed the council set up two public information sessions to instruct people on how to use the new feature. Council member Paul McHugh suggested that law enforcement should step up monitoring of the roundabout, not to ticket, but to provide information to bewildered drivers.
