Land Use Notices Madison Valley Area, Sep 2 - Oct 3

OCTOBER 5, 2016 | KATHRYN KELLER

Here are the Council, OPCD and SDCI Land Use notices within the last month for communities from 18th Ave. to Lake Washington and E Union St. to SR-520.

 

Updated Environmentally Critical Areas Map

Steep slope maps have been updated using a combination of LIDAR technology and topographic contours using aerial photos. Because of time constraints, the center third of the City is based only on the 2001 LIDAR information.

The changed maps are implemented as a Director’s Rule and are used as advisory by the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections for initial information and screening. Whether or not a site is eventually treated as an environmentally critical area is based on the actual topography of the ground surface.

The methology used and map details are linked here:
