The following were identified as SEPA mitigation during the agency review process.

  1. Per the traffic analysis, vehicular traffic from this project is expected to add 13 AM trips and 5 PM trips to the NB US 195 to EB I-90 ramp. WSDOT has commented that no additional peak hour trips may be added to the ramp due to safety concerns. Latah Glen is required to complete an improvement to the US 195 corridor that will reduce the impact of its traffic on NB US 195 to EB I-90 ramp (“Mitigation Project(s)”). Latah Glen may not receive final plan approval until a financial commitment is in place (secured by a letter of credit or bond), which has been approved by the City, providing for the design and construction for the Mitigation Project(s), which shall be under contract for construction within one year from the final plan approval. The details of the mitigation project(s) will be agreed upon by the developers, City, and WSDOT. The applicant’s contributions to funding the design and construction of the mitigation project will qualify for a credit against transportation impact fees per SMC 17D.075.070.
  2. The applicant shall improve Inland Empire Way from the proposed site access to US 195.  This improvement shall consist of paving the roadway, providing a separated sidewalk, drainage facilities, signage, etc. in a manner consistent with City of Spokane standards, application conditions of approval, and the Storhaug Engineering plans for this section of roadway.

The applicant shall update the traffic analysis prior to the approval of the plans that would allow the occupancy of the 100th residential unit.  This updated traffic analysis shall evaluate the need for a right turn lane at the intersection of US 195 and Inland Empire Way in the southbound direction.  If this right turn lane is deemed necessary, the applicant shall enter into a WSDOT development agreement for the design and construction of this right turn lane with the approval of the 100th residential unit.  As part of the development agreement the applicant can bond for the construction of the turn lane in the next construction season.
