Miscellaneous Condition Resolved Engineering Division
: PERMITTING • Any portion of the proposed project that is outside WSDOT ROW limits and within the jurisdiction of the City of Puyallup will require a permit issued by the City Engineering Department. WSDOT, or the contractor obtaining the permit on behalf of WSDOT, will be required to post bonding, license, and insurance pursuant to Puyallup Municipal Code, Title 11. (NOTE: On the SR167 Puyallup River Bridge Replacement Project, a mutually agreed Construction Agreement was executed between WSDOT and the City as an alternative to the required bonding and insurance requirements of Title 11) • Refer to DRT Letter dated May 25, 2023 associated with Pre-Application PLPRE20220154, for additional criteria to be incorporated into any future City issued engineering permit. 8-30-23: NOTE TO FILE-This condition acknowledged by WSDOT in their Comment Response Letter dated August 21, 2023.
Miscellaneous Planning Condition Open Planning Division
: WSDOT will need to include a public education sign along the shared use path (SUP) that provides information about the river and/or the shoreline. As noted in WSDOT's comment response letter to DRT Letter #1, the sign will be located landward of existing paved surfaces in an area already proposed for Project Impacts where no additional critical area impacts or vegetation removal would occur.
Miscellaneous Planning Condition Open Planning Division
: Prepare and provide final geotechnical documentation upon submittal of City engineering permit applications to address the compliance with shoreline stabilization requirements found in the SMP Chapter 7, Section L.3 (c).
Miscellaneous Planning Condition Open Planning Division
: The final landscape plan must include landscaping coverage established with 65% native vegetation between permitted uses/structures and the OHWM to the extent feasible.
Miscellaneous Planning Condition Open Planning Division
: Vegetation removal within the stormwater outfall area shall be limited to the greatest extent possible. Up to two trees may be removed waterward of North Levee Road to allow for the outfall replacement. Trees that are removed are required to be replaced per SMP Chapter 7, Section L.3 (f).
Miscellaneous Planning Condition Open Planning Division
: All cut and fill slopes will be stabilized and plated with native grasses, pollinator-friendly plants, shrubs, and trees, where feasible (SMP Chapter 7 - N (3)(h))
Miscellaneous Planning Condition Open Planning Division
: The approved Shoreline Substantial Development Permit (PLSDP20230027) is for the original proposal and does NOT include the approval of the Levee Road realignment. If Levee Road realignment options are proposed in the future, then a separate shoreline permit will be acquired for that work.
Miscellaneous Condition Open Development & Permitting Services
: Floodplain review for project activities as proposed within this shoreline substantial development application (PLSDP20230027) that are located outside of WSDOT right-of-way and within the City of Puyallup and its shorelines is complete. Any associated engineering-related work proposed outside of WSDOT’s right-of-way and within Puyallup City Limits will require a separate civil engineering permit from the City. If future proposed work is wholly within the limits of WDOT’s right-of-way and not within the City’s shoreline, then no separate City permit will be required.
