PUYALLUP SCHOOL DIST NO 3
The Puyallup School District intends to convert the newly acquired vacant 4.5 acre parcel at APN 0419043115 to a parking lot to accommodate the small bus fleet from the Downtown School District Campus (approximately 60 vehicles) and provide additional parking for the bus drivers who currently report to the Downtown Campus.

General Comments -Per previous comments, provide AutoTurn analysis assuming the largest anticipated design vehicle. Likely Thomas HDX w/277" wheelbase. -Remove all trees/shrubs located at the SE corner of parcel to improve sight distance for Costco drive isle. -Access easement may be necessary in the SE corner of parcel. This easement would allow for possible future re-alignment of the Costco Drive isle (substandard geometry). Access easement would not allow proposed parking lot to access 14th St SW (or Costco property). -Southern internal parking lot connection (with parcel #0419043117) is not aligned properly with existing parking infrastructure & proposed internal parking channelization. This alignment will likely cause lane encroachment issues for ingress/egress vehicles. -The existing internal access (along the east side of existing building) needs to connect with the proposed northern parking lot connection with a perpendicular approach. The proposed skewed/acute approach geometry will cause sight distance & operational issues (especially for large vehicles). As proposed, drivers will have difficulty turning their heads to scan for adequate gaps in traffic. -Civil submittal shall include detailed striping/signage plan. Traffic Scoping Comments: -Per previous comments, vehicle trip credits cannot be moved between projects/parcels. Update traffic scoping document to reflect this. -Proposed 188 additional parking spots (60 parking spots for buses + 128 parking stalls for staff) not consistent with scoping narrative & trip generation assumptions. -Per the project narrative, 64 bus drivers will be relocated from the downtown bus barn to this to this facility. The assumed LUC 528 (School District Office) is meant to represent administrative office functions. Additional office space has not been proposed by this project. Bus storage/logistics are not represented by this ITE land use. -Inbound/outbound buses + inbound/outbound personal vehicles need to be accounted for in trip generation assumptions. -Please reference Traffic Impact Study from Milford, CT Bus Depot at 615 Plains Rd. - TIA completed by Benesch in May 2022. -Update traffic scoping worksheet & study intersections accordingly. -Provide more narrative on how trip distribution was determined. -More narrative needed for how ongoing fleet repairs, maintenance, and fueling activities impact vehicle trips to/from this site. -Scoping site plan does not match preliminary site plan. -Resubmit traffic scoping document for review prior to starting TIA. Traffic analysis -City can provide signal timing for signals within study area. -Need to measure existing queue lengths at study intersections -Delay analysis shall account for unserved demand where applicable. -use 3% annual growth rate (3 year horizon). -The operational analysis at 17th St SW & 39th Ave should evaluate existing NB/SB channelization. Analysis needs to evaluate SBL & NBL turn pockets. -report 95th percentile queuing & approach delay.

Additional Submittal Item Required: Existing trees on the site which are larger than 15” in Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) are considered to be ‘significant trees’ and must be retained, where possible. If your site includes any significant trees, then you must include a tree risk assessment completed by a certified arborist and provided with your land use application and civil construction permit landscape plan.

The adjacent site to the west determined relatively infeasible soil rates for shallow infiltration. Moderate infiltration was present in the vashon advance outwash. The geotech report mentions "Locating and constructing infiltration trenches with a variable base depth can be challenging and additional subsurface exploration and infiltration testing will be required for facilities planned in Vashon advance outwash." Provide further justification regarding the feasibility of shallow infiltration feasibility with additional testing. Ensure the test pit is proposed at the proposed elevation of the infiltration trenches.

Coordinate with Costco regarding re-directing the stormwater flows from the cul-de-sac to the east to the catch basin to the east. This stormwater will be directed towards Costco's private pond rather than bypassing through the proposed parking lot. This coordination may require an agreement between the City of Puyallup and Costco. Provide a narrative regarding this cul-de-sac stormwater discharge during the next submission [Civils, pg 6]

Must show all additional accessible parking spots as defined in the IBC along with WA. ST. amendments. Also there is going to be a big change in the requirements for electrical charging stations effective July 1, 2023 per WAC 51-50-0429. So may want to do the design to reflect those new requirements if submitting for a permit after that date.
