North Bend City Council Approves Contract for Engineering, Permitting of Controversial Meadowbrook Sewer ULID

On September 20th, 2022, the North Bend City Council approved a Motion authorizing a contract with Gray and Osborne (G&O) for engineering and permitting the Meadowbrook Sewer Utility Local Improvement District (ULID) process. 

The next steps in the Meadowbrook Sewer ULID process include preparing engineering plans and permitting. When plans reach 60% completion, the project will undergo State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review, and following that, the permitting process and final engineering plans will include a cost estimate.

The motion follows an approved ordinance authorizing the formation of the Meadowbrook Sewer ULID, which occurred at the August 2nd City Council meeting. 

This sewer collection and conveyance system project area includes most of the western portion of the City limits that are not currently served by sewer and relies on septic drain fields for properties whose soils can support it.

A public sewer system will provide individual property owners with development opportunities that better align with zoned uses in the Meadowbrook area, promoting a robust commercial tax base and less reliance on residential property taxes for the City’s operating budget.

  • Exit 34 could have been “robust commercial tax base and less reliance on residential property taxes for the City’s operating budget.” Alas the none tax generating National Guard will be there. All the trucks that clog the on/off ramps would have paid for a parking spot, but instead the park illegally and pollute.
