Subject: RE: Homesight Dearborn/Davis Place Property
We apologize for the delay in responding to you. Relevant staff were on vacation. HomeSight did complete all affordable housing improvements and The Office of Housing issued a certificate of completion for the property over 12 years ago in May of 2006 (see attached). Therefore, the Office of Housing did not have regulatory authority over the land when it was sold.
We do understand that HomeSight plans to re-invest the proceeds of the sale in affordable housing in the Othello neighborhood.
Update on Meeting, 10/17
This meeting was for public comments, and the developer was not required to (and did not) attend. The developer did attend the JPCC August meeting, and said they would attend this meeting. The developer also said they would followup with the JPCC group, but to date (10/25/2018) has not followed through.
Of note from the public comments and interchange with the city:
- Led by:
- This was a SEPA review public comment meeting
- All parties to the review (including those that signed in to this meeting and / or provided public comment) will receive notice of the SEPA decision, which begins a 2 week appeal window
- The SEPA review board said they would request that a construction management plan be required, if the project passes the SEPA review. The SEPA board can require a construction management plan if there are mitigating traffic, congestion, and safety concerns.
- The SEPA board must approve projects if they are legally defined to fit the SEPA code, so it's highly formulaic process
