On January 22, 2013 City Council approved the following motions:
“To direct staff to continue with the project design and the public outreach process and in particular to be sure to outreach to homeowners throughout the basin and to proceed with design and construction of the 44th Avenue rain garden and the detention pond projects.” And
“To amend the motion to form a citizens committee from each of the upper, middle and lower areas of the gulch to meet with staff two to three times before coming back to Council.
Under the signed contract with the Department of Ecology, the following tasks must be completed by the end of 2014:
Construct low impact development (LID) best management practices (BMPs) including bioretention facilities and gravel galleries with amended soils for treatment;
Retrofit up to three existing stormwater detention ponds to increase storage capacity and provide treatment; and
Increase awareness of benefits of LID.
The committee will work to prioritize and select the best LID options for the remaining projects in upper portions of the Smuggler’s Gulch basin.
We anticipate that the overall project will take two years to construct and includes a combination of rain gardens, gravel galleries, and detention pond retrofits. We are proposing the following projects:
