Lakepointe Urban Village Subarea

Lakepointe Urban Village Subarea 
(formerly known as Hawk Property Subarea)


Background

Starting in 2013, the Covington community has been planning for the future development of what was once the Lakeside Gravel Mine.  More background information on the planning and public involvement in the development of the Hawk Property Subarea Plan and nonproject Planned Action EIS can be found by clicking here.  Lakepointe Urban Village Subarea
(Note: Oakpointe, the master developer of the subarea, has notified the city that they will be calling the future development in that area now undergoing mine reclamation “Lakepointe”.)  

What is happening now?
On November 21, 2016, Oakpointe submitted the three applications: Development Agreement, LU16-0026; Zoning Map Amendment, LU16-0025; and a Boundary Line Adjustment, LU16-0024), as well as SEPA documentation (SEPA17-01).

At the City Council meeting on April 25, 2017, councilmembers unanimously passed Ord. 02-2017 with amendments to Sections 9.1.3, 19.2.13, 34.2 and 36.2 of the Development Agreement (Exhibit A). 

Zoning of Subarea

At this time the existing asphalt batch plant is continuing operation and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources is overseeing the Surface Mine Reclamation Permit #70-011069(Black River S&G)  they issued in 2016, which authorizes surface mine reclamation within the Lakepointe Urban Village Subarea.
