Expanding the transit-oriented SEPA authority

Former AWC Board Member Rep. Jake Fey (D-Tacoma) introduced HB 2763 to extend the sunset of the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) provisions that allow for a protection from appeal for projects near transit hubs that are consistent with certain planned actions. The bill extends the sunset date from 2018 to 2028 and adds a new affordable housing requirement that development projects need to set aside 20 percent of any housing units for low-income households. The bill also makes some technical changes to the timelines for the appeal protections for particular projects.

Please review HB 2763 and share your feedback with Carl Schroeder.
