Project Description Shoreline Conditional Discretionary Use and Shoreline Substantial Development Exemption Permit for a replacement of an existing, legal non-conforming single family residence and attached deck including a lateral and vertical expansion. The existing residence was built in the early 1970’s prior to building permit requirements by the county. The single family residence is currently within the marine shoreline buffer. Ordinary high water mark is located at the existing bulkhead which the deck extends out to, the residence foundation is approximately 22 feet from the ordinary high water mark. The proposal will demo and rebuild the existing 984 sq/ft residence and approximately 644 sq/ft deck with a lateral and vertical expansion that would increase the residence footprint by 528 sq/ft laterally and increase the house height by four feet to 32 feet, and add a 237 sq/ft basement under a portion of the residence. As a majority of the expansion would be over existing impervious surfaces and deck, only 202 sq/ft of new impervious surface would be created by the expansion. A Habitat Survey and No Net Loss Report addressing impacts for the proposal was submitted in conjunction with the permit application. A building permit application has been submitted for the proposal under BLD18-00210. The proposal is exempt from SEPA review under WAC 197-11-800(1)(b)(i), (2)(f) and (6)(a).
