HOW THIS PROJECT RELATES TO THE NISQUALLY SUBAREA
PLAN UPDATE PROJECT
The Nisqually Subarea Plan (NSAP) Asphalt Recycling Policy E.5 Review project
is a separate project from the Nisqually Subarea Plan (NSAP) Update.
The Nisqually Subarea Plan Asphalt Recycling Policy E.5 Review project was
initiated in response to the submittal by Lakeside Industries, Inc. of a formal
application requesting a specific change to an existing policy. Any resident or
company can submit an application and request specific changes to existing
policies. The County accepts these types of applications during a set time
period each year.
In comparison, the Nisqually Subarea Plan Update project was initiated by the
County and the purpose is to review the existing plan to determine what if any
changes are necessary to ensure the plan will meet the community’s needs and
accommodate the projected growth out to 2040.
HOW ARE THE TWO PROJECTS DIFFERENT?
- One of the key differences between the two types of projects is who pays for
them. The costs for a project initiated in response to a citizen or private
organization’s application must be covered entirely by the applicant. The County
requires the applicant to reimburse them for all work performed relating to the
project. This does not give the applicant any control over the project;
it is simply the County recovering the costs of reviewing the requested policy
- The scope of a project that is in response to an application for a policy
amendment is much narrower and is looking only at the requested policy change.
