The landscape plan it states, “utilities and code required offsets prevent the installation of trees within the type IIa street front setback area”. If frontage improvements and associated 10’ planter strip are not required as a part of this project, we will require that type IIa landscaping with associated trees be planted at a maximum of 30’ intervals and the existing three street trees retained where possible or replanted in like. a.Are the three existing street trees planned to be removed as a result of the placement of these utilities? b.Can the proposed utilities and grease interceptor be placed outside of the required 12’ perimeter landscaping area? The existing street trees need to be retained where possible. [landscape plan, pg. 1]

SEPA Checklist 1. Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP): DAHP is requesting that an Inadvertent Discovery Plan is created and kept onsite during construction. Their comment e-mail is viewable through the CityView Portal. 2. Puyallup Tribe of Indians: The Puyallup Tribe has stated that 1115 E Main is located within a high probability area for impacting cultural resources. They are asking for verification as to whether or not the project will be removing the existing parking lot in order to complete a new/larger parking lot or if you are only adding on. If the existing parking lot is getting torn up, it will need an Archaeological monitory during ground disturbance. Their comment e-mail is viewable through the CityView Portal. 3. Department of Ecology: The Department of Ecology provided a comment e-mail. This comment e-mail is viewable through the CityView Portal. 4. Nisqually Indian Tribe: The Nisqually Indian Tribe provided a comment letter. This comment letter is viewable through the CityView Portal. 5. One public comment was received via telephone by a neighboring property owner, Michael Ewing at 1033 E Main. He would like to express his concern over the proposed trash enclosure. The existing Taco Time trash enclosure onsite has allegedly resulted in rodents becoming an issue on their property. The proposed trash enclosure is proposed to be located closer to their property line where his residence is. In addition to this, he stated that the existing Taco Time drive-through produces a significant amount of sound and light that has impacts on their property. Mr. Ewing is concerned with the addition of another drive-through and associated light and sound impacts. He would like to recommend a possible sound or visual buffer such as “insulated” vinyl fencing.
