Sequim: City Council hears from developer of proposed regional shopping center



SEQUIM, WA -- Representatives of a development firm seeking to build a regional shopping center, tentatively featuring a Fred Meyer department store, pitched their plan to City Council members Wednesday night.

The council session was a formal evaluation of Bellevue-based McConkey Development's request for a zoning modification on 23 acres of a planned 30-acre complex called Bell Farm Center, near East Hammond Street and U.S. Highway 101.

State law requires a public hearing when zoning modifications would result from developments.

The C-4 overlay sought by Fred McConkey would convert much, but not all, of the parcel's zoning designation use from mixed-use to large commercial.

If granted, the C-4 designation would trigger a set of requirements from the developer that exceed those of typical commercial buildings.

Council members were expected to vote on granting the C-4 overlay at the conclusion of Wednesday's meeting.

Any decision they reach will appear in Friday's Peninsula Daily News, as will comments made by members of the public.
