The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) has updated drafts of the Hayden Island Natural Resources Inventory (NRI) and Economic, Social, Environmental and Energy (ESEE) Analysis. Both reports are part of the Amended Proposed Draft for West Hayden Island, which will be the subject of the May 7, 2013, Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) hearing. A PSC work session and possible vote on the proposal is scheduled for May 28.
The NRI includes information about the location, quantity and quality of natural resources on the island and a determination of significance for identified resources. The ESEE includes identification of conflicting uses, determination of the impact area, analysis of the ESEE consequences of allowing, limiting or prohibiting conflicting uses, and a recommendation for the circumstances under which development should be allowed or limited.
The NRI and ESEE are used to inform development of the West Hayden Island Plan District Zoning Code. The NRI, ESEE and environmental regulations are also components of the City’s compliance with Metro’s Title 13 - Nature in Neighborhoods.
