Tanner Road Update (1/21/15)

Today, the City of North Bend issued its proposal that the Developer (Segale Properties) revise its subdivision plan to provide for improved boater parking and additional safety measures for at the Tanner Road access to the Middle Middle section of the Snoqualmie River.

The Developer’s original plan called for 6’ wide parking lanes on both sides of Tanner Road. Following the hearing on January 8 (at which boater turnout was strong and supported by great letters from American Whitewater), the City’s new proposals include (1) east (riverside) parking with 8’ wide lane next to a 5’ wide sidewalk and (2) west (nonriverside) parking with 24’ wide lane next to a 5’ sidewalk. Wide parking 90-degree spots are to be striped to accommodate large vehicles and boat unloading.

The proposed changes seem pretty good.

The Developer has until February 4 to respond. So far, the Developer has seemed reasonable and cooperative in addressing boater access concerns. Updates to follow.
