Port Angeles Planning Commission looks at proposed development
July 15th, 2005 - 2:38pm
(Port Angeles, WA) -- The Port Angeles planning commission wants more information on a proposed new housing development on the south end of town.
This week, the commission asked the developer of the 147-lot plan to present more studies about the plan.
The Reserve at Valley Creek would feature more than 60 single-family houses and more than 30 duplex and four-plexes on 15 acres at Ahlvers and Laurel Streets.
Neighbors and planning commissioners have expressed concerns the development may be too dense for the area and also have a serious impact on traffic.
The planning commission says the developer needs to address traffic and stormwater issues and impacts the project may have on nearby wetlands.
The developer says they have met with neighbors and addressed their concerns about the project. They also say the project would provide much-needed affordable housing in the area.
The planning commission plans to meet with city staff next month on the proposal during a worksession.
