On February 13, 2017, the applicant was granted authorization by the Mukilteo City Council to move forward with permitting to fill the on-site wetland and mitigate by creating an off-site wetland in a high-value watershed identified in the City of Mukilteo’s CAMP. The applicant has since received approval from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to fill/remove the existing wetland. The new off-site wetland will be located in Japanese Gulch, within the City of Everett. This work includes the creation of 5,162 sq. ft. of wetland and enhancement of 6,649 sq. ft. of existing wetland buffer. A grading permit from the City of Everett is required to recreate the wetland and complete buffer enhancement. Environmental review is required under the Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) for projects undertaken on lands covered by water, including work on wetlands. Specifically, the removal and fill of the wetland located at 8xx 8th Street and the recreation of the wetland and buffer enhancement within Japanese Gulch on City-owned property requires SEPA review. Grading quantities are estimated at 300 cubic yards (CY) for the property located at 8xx 8th Street and 10 CY for the City-owned property in Japanese Gulch. The existing soil within the wetland recreation area will be reused to enhance the buffer area. Mulch will be imported for use within the buffer area. Submittal of the building permit for the single-family dwelling will occur at a later date.
