Eastview Village

Project Description

The Eastview Village project is a mixed-use phased development project located off Cathcart Way in unincorporated Snohomish County. A total of 1,301 residential units are proposed with 50,500 square feet of non-residential commercial space, of which 19,500 square feet is defined as general retail per SCC 30.91R.143. The project is composed of eight parcels totaling approximately 145 acres. The project is proposed to be developed in 12 phases with commercial and residential uses. The project area encompasses multiple zones including Neighborhood Business, Business Park, Multiple Residential and Low Density Multiple Residential. No change to existing zoning is proposed. Primary access will be provided via an extension of Puget Park Drive and 144th Place SE, with additional connections to be made to 79th Ave SE and to future development to the north.

Process Overview


Since the project site contains multiple different zones, several different land use permits are necessary.  An Urban Residential Design Standards (URDS) Site Plan Approval permit will cover all phases as all phases contain some residential components.  In addition to that application two Preliminary Site Plan applications were applied for to cover the multifamily and mixed-use development  phases in the Neighborhood Business (NB) and Business Park (BP) zones. The applicant has also requested a Planned Residential Development (PRD) subdivision, a Unit Lot Subdivision and a standard Subdivision using lot size averaging. These Subdivisions will create individual lots for all the single-family development, including detached units and townhomes.


The applicant has agreed to consolidate these permits and have them processed in a Type 2 permit process which requires a public hearing and decision by the Hearing Examiner. To find more information about this process, see Chapter 30.72 of Snohomish County Code.


The proposed development is meeting the SEPA exemption for new construction and infill development in subsections SCC30.61.035 (2) & (3). The applicant has acknowledged that payment of traffic impact fees as required by interlocal agreements under SCC 30.66B.177, SCC 30.66B710, and SCC 30.66B.720, which would still be required as a condition of approval under SCC 30.61.230(6) despite the project itself being deemed exempt from SEPA requirements.

  1. Planning and Development Services (PDS) conducts its first review of the application. At the conclusion of review, PDS will send a request for information/corrections back to the applicant. This typically includes any corrections needed in order to comply with applicable regulations. It may also include a request for the applicant to provide responses to comments received from residents and agencies. 
  2. The applicant re-submits the application with information and materials requested by PDS as described above. It is not uncommon for applicants to go through 2-3 rounds of review prior to being scheduled for a public hearing. 
  3. Public Hearing. The Snohomish County Hearing Examiner will hold a public hearing for the consolidated project. Any person may provide oral comments during the hearing. Written comment is also accepted during the review process before the hearing and during the hearing.
