Diablo Lake New Fuel Dock Project
Applicant: Seattle City Light Department Seattle City Light
Purpose of the Addendum: This SEPA Addendum provides information supplemental to the original SEPA Environmental Checklist and DNS as a result of a Project scope modification. The Project has been modified to reduce environmental impacts by moving the location of the gangway and float from the west side of the proposed crib wall to the east side of the proposed crib wall. This modification will eliminate the need to dredge waterward of the proposed crib wall. There are a few other minor changes resulting from this modification, most of which are beneficial to the aquatic environment.
Full Project Description (Including Modification): City Light is proposing to replace the existing fuel dock on Diablo Lake to improve safety for City Light employees refueling vessels on Diablo Lake; reduce the potential for fuel spills; and improve access to the fuel dock and adjacent loading dock by both people and vessels. The Project includes removing and replacing the existing in-water fuel float and onshore fuel dispenser with a new fuel dock approximately 80 feet northeast of the existing fuel dock. The existing riprap bulkhead adjacent to the fuel dispenser would be removed and replaced with a prefabricated crib wall. During construction, Diablo Lake would be drawn down so that all work would be performed in the dry. The proposed fuel dock would consist of a float, a gangway, and a new fuel dispenser on the float. The float would be constructed from Alaska yellow cedar timber beams and molded fiberglass grating, with two steel pontoons. The molded fiberglass grating would increase light penetration from 0% to approximately 44%. The float would be larger, approximately 15 feet wide by 40 feet long, to accommodate the fuel dispenser and a new gangway landing. The new fuel dock would be accessed by an aluminum gangway also fitted with molded fiberglass grating to allow light penetration. The new fuel dock would be secured in place with two 16-inch, cylindrical, hollow structural section piles. The piles would be driven approximately 25 feet (or less) into the lake bottom using a vibratory hammer initially, and an impact hammer if necessary. Up to 247 impact strikes per pile per day may be required. The DNS and Environmental Checklist originally included dredging 3,450 sf (450-465 cubic yards) of sediment waterward of the crib wall, and positioning the fuel float 25 feet from the existing fuel float. The Project has been modified, however, by moving the gangway and float 80 feet away to the opposite side of the proposed crib wall to take advantage of deeper water, thereby eliminating the need for dredging. Other Project modifications resulting from this change include a reduction in quarry spall on the lakebed surface (5 cubic yards of quarry spall rather than 100-125 cubic yards); insignificant changes of other fill and excavation quantities; and addition of a concrete sidewalk landward of the crib wall to provide gangway access. Instructions for obtaining the Addendum, original documentation, modified project description, figures, and drawings are provided below.
Proponent: Seattle City Light, Seattle Municipal Tower, 700 Fifth Avenue, Suite 3200, P.O. Box 34023, Seattle WA 98124-4023.
Location: The proposed project is within the southeast quarter of Section 4, Township 37 North, Range 13 East of the Willamette Meridian. To access the project site from Interstate 5, take State Highway Route 20 east towards Winthrop, Washington. Travel approximately 67 miles. At a point approximately two miles past the town of Diablo (approximately 65 miles from Interstate 5), take a left at the sign indicating “Diablo Dam”. Travel approximately one mile along this road, which is Diablo Dam Access Road (crossing over the Diablo Dam), to the City Light Boathouse on the north shore of the lake.
Comments: City Light, the lead agency for this proposal, is inviting the public to comment on the Addendum and complete Project proposal for a 30-day period. Comments must be submitted by November 30, 2019.
A copy of the Addendum and other documentation can be obtained at no charge from City Light by calling (206) 684-3117 or by visiting the office of City Light’s Environmental, Land, and Licensing Business Unit at Suite 3200, 700 Fifth Avenue in Seattle.

The City has received from the Whatcom County Economic Development Investment Project a grant in the amount of $883,227.18 and a loan in the amount of $1,766,454.36. The City has agreed to contribute $350,000 to pay for a portion of the Improvements. If the local improvement district is formed, the cost of the Improvements not covered by the grant and the City’s contribution, estimated to be $1,766,667, shall be borne by and assessed against the property specially benefited by such Improvements.
Hearing: The Council sets November 12, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers as the time and place for hearing all matters relating the Improvements and the formation of a local improvement district.

2020 Oak Harbor Comprehensive Plan Amendments Call For Applications
The City of Oak Harbor is initiating its annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process. The amendment process begins with a call for applications from the public requesting changes to the Plan. The requests are then compiled into a docket and reviewed by the Planning Commission and City Council.
The City Council approves a final docket before the end of March 2020.
Request for changes can be made to any aspect of the Comprehensive Plan. However, the application requirements differ for private sponsored amendments and public amendments. An example of a private amendment is a request to change a land use designation for a property, and an example of a public amendment would be a request to change the density requirements for a particular zoning district which can impact all properties in that district.
For more information on public amendments please contact City staff.
Information regarding this can also be found in the Oak Harbor Municipal Code (OHMC) Section 18.15.060. Links to the OHMC can be found on the Citys website homepage www.oakharbor.org.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Comprehensive Plan Amendments.
The application for private amendments (land use changes) is currently available at City Hall and on the Citys webpage under the Development Services tab and Planning Division permit applications page. The deadline for applications is Monday, December 2, 2019 at 5pm.
The process to consider amendments to the Comprehensive Plan is a yearlong process. All applications received will be placed on a preliminary docket with other mandatory and discretionary items. The docket will then be reviewed and possibly refined by the Planning Commission (January 2020) and the City Council (March 2020) through a public hearing process before approval.
The process is designed to provide opportunities for public participation at various stages of the review. Please contact Cac Kamak, Senior Planner, at (360) 279-4514 if you have questions.

Hibler Bank Stabilization Project
File # PL19-0450
Project Description: for the Hibler Bank Stabilization Project. The project proposal seeks to provide bank stabilization at the site and reduce the potential for increased erosion over time and a long term solution. High flows on the Samish River during the winter months transported a large tree with rootwad downstream that came to rest adjacent to a residence off Ershig Road. The LWD then racked additional debris and caused high rates of erosion along the right bank property. The County relocated the log jam under APP ID: 18018 in May of 2019 to avoid further erosion. The project will use bio-engineered techniques including the installation of large woody debris and coir lifts to stabilize the bank.

Property Boundary Maintenance Ditch
File # PL19-0451
Project Description: Notice is hereby given that on September 9, 2019, Skagit County Planning and Development Services approved the independent SEPA checklist for the County Property Boundary Maintenance Project. The project will reestablish a historic ditch around the perimeter of the County property. This will convey water off the property directly to Red Creek.
Skagit County has a 20-acre parcel north of a private parcel on Helmick Road. This parcel has been used as mitigation for the 2007 widening of Helmick Road. As the County has enhanced the wetlands and allowed beaver activity to thrive on the parcel it has caused additional flooding and water retention on the private property to the south. This has negatively impacted the adjacent property’s farming capabilities. Reestablishment of the historic perimeter ditch will allow natural process to exist on the County property while not impacting agricultural viability of the neighboring properties. The perimeter ditch is about 1,600 linear feet. The project work will involve approximately 1,100 linear feet and remove no more than 125 cubic yards.
Proponent: Skagit County Public Works, c/o Emily Derenne, 1800 Continental Place, Mount Vernon, WA 98273.
Project Location: The project is located north of 25588 Helmick Road, Sedro-Woolley, within a portion of Section 17, Township 35N, Range 5E W.M., situated within Skagit County, Washington. (P39252)

Construction of a 30 x 110-Foot-Long Wharf
PL17-0495 for Rozema Boat Works
On July 23, 2019, the Skagit County Hearing Examiner approved, with conditions, a shoreline substantial development, conditional use and variance application for the proposed construction of a wharf and building addition to allow fabrication of vessels up to 80 feet in length, which will allow the applicant to compete in a diversifying economic/industrial environment and to promote an efficient and safe work environment. Construction of the wharf and building addition will provide for an enclosed work area and allow completed vessels to be safely constructed onsite. The wharf would offer temporary moorage for shipping barges so that finished vessels can be safely loaded and transported from the facility.
On August 26, 2019, the Department of Ecology issued its decision on the shoreline permit applications to approve construction of a 30-foot by 110-foot-long wharf parallel to the shoreline of an existing boat manufacturing facility. The project includes removal of an existing building and construction of an L-shaped addition to the existing main boat fabrication facility. Additional conditions are included in the Ecology decision.
