Citizen input is sought for Cougar Mountain subdivision
May 22, 2012
Citizens can comment soon about a subdivision proposed for Cougar Mountain near the Talus urban village.
City Council members plan to hold a public hearing on the Forest Heights development agreement, a proposed pact to add 24 single-family lots to about six acres on a 13.9-acre site. The agreement also outlines nine tracts for native growth protection easements, open space, storm water detention and future development.
The proposed project site is north and east of Talus, south of Northwest James Bush Road and uphill from state Route 900.
The proposal raised concerns among Talus residents about possible impacts on parking in the hillside neighborhood and increased landslide risk.
Citizens can comment on the proposed development agreement at a meeting and public hearing at 7:30 p.m. June 4. The council meets in the Council Chambers at City Hall South, 135 E. Sunset Way.
