Notice of Final SEPA Determination and Hearing Date
North Cascades Basecamp PDM 2019-1
Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted by Chris Johnson on behalf of The Bush School to modify the existing North Cascade Basecamp Planned Development. If approved the exterior boundary of the PD which currently encloses 20.51 acres would be expanded to include an adjoining 2 acre parcel. The expansion would allow the 50 foot setback for structures required by the PD to be measured from the amended exterior boundary. The modification will not change the established zoning density for the PD or the allowed uses.
In 1980 the PD was given a final determination of non-significance. The North Cascade Basecamp PD was recorded on 10/18/1983. In 2016 an administrative decision was made after review of a supplemental environmental checklist which determined that activities contemplated in 2015 were consistent with those approved in 1980.
The site is located at 255D Lost River Rd. near Mazama, WA on tax parcel numbers 9100000300 & 9800880012.
The SEPA responsible official issued a Final Determination of Non-Significance in accordance with WAC 197-11-340. This decision may be appealed in accordance with OCC 14.04.220. Appeals must be made in writing to the Okanogan County Hearing Examiner, 123 5th Ave N Ste. 130, Okanogan, WA 98840. Appeals must be submitted or postmarked by 5:00 p.m. on March 22, 2019. Appeals shall state with specificity the elements of the environmental checklist and resulting determination the appellant finds objectionable and shall state the reason therefore. Appeals must include the $300.00 appeal fee.
A public hearing is scheduled for March 28, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in the Commissioner’s hearing room located on the first floor of the Grainger Administration Building at 123 Fifth Ave. North, Okanogan, Washington, at which time the Hearings Examiner will hear verbal testimony on the issue. Written comments will be accepted prior to the hearing and may be submitted in writing or electronically to email@example.com or mailed or delivered to 123 5th Ave N. Suite 130, Okanogan WA 98840. Written comments may be submitted at the hearing. Failure to comment by this date denies a party standing to appeal the final decision. Information regarding this project can be obtained from Okanogan County Office of Planning and Development, Pam Wyllson, Planner 1 (509) 422-7122.
