402 Avenue E request denied, deemed faulty

Facility, if built, limited to nine beds instead of desired 25 beds

SNOHOMISH — The city hearing examiner denied a request from the developer of 402 Ave. E to allow a proposed senior housing facility have the full 25 bed quota it requested.
The facility will only be allowed nine beds, something developer Christopher Koh has clearly said is too small a number for him to market and sell the property as a senior housing site.
City hearing examiner Ted Hunter’s decision came down Friday, May 16.
Hunter rejected arguments filed last month by Koh’s team that 25 beds is acceptable because there is enough parking on-site to sustain this.
The team cited parking ratio examples from Bellevue and Seattle that Hunter said were incomparable to Snohomish.
Hunter also rejected arguments that limiting the beds harms the viability of the proposed project, stating this has no effect on land use matters.
The proposed senior housing site is located in the middle of a single family neighborhood about a block south of Snohomish High School.
The proposal drew strong grassroots opposition by the surrounding neighborhood.
