Preferred Freezer/Orca Bay extension request

On Oct. 20, 2016, the City of Federal Way received this letter from Preferred Freezer/Orca Bay Seafoods requesting a 30-day extension for the city’s environmental determination under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA).

The request is in response to the city’s Oct. 7, 2016, letter that requires more information about the Preferred Freezer/Orca Bay project in several areas of concern. More than 300 comments submitted by the public were taken into consideration.

Areas requiring more information include noise, traffic, wetlands, emergency response/risk management, building design, historic preservation and more.

Read the city’s letter here. Also read the wetlands response letter and the Lakehaven Utility District letter.

The developer must provide this information before the city can make its environmental determination or determine whether the project can proceed. The city has the right to request additional information.

Watch the city’s Oct. 4 update and explanation of the process.
