Montevallo / Wood Trails Preliminary Plan and Rezone Applications

Wood Trails:  The City Council, of the City of Woodinville, denies the requested Rezone Application
(ZMA2004053) recommended by the City Hearing Examiner and Grants the Appeal of the
Concerned Neighbors of Wellington (CNW) of the Hearing Examiner's approval of the
Preliminary Plat Application (PPA2004054) based solely upon the denial of the Rezone. Since
the Hearing Examiner's approval of the Preliminary Plat Application was contingent upon the
approval of the rezone, the City Council does not reach the merits of the other claims of error
raised by the CNW in their appeal of the Hearing Examiner's Approval of the Preliminary Plat
Application.  Complete Summary Document

Montevallo:  The City Council, of the City of Woodinville, denies the requested Rezone Application
(ZMA2004094) recommended by the City Hearing Examiner and Grants the Appeal of the
Concerned Neighbors of Wellington (CNW) of the Hearing Examiner's approval of the
Preliminary Plat Application (PPA2004093) based solely upon the denial of the Rezone.
Since the Hearing Examiner's approval of the Preliminary Plat Application was contingent
upon the approval of the rezone, the City Council does not reach the merits of the other
claims of error raised by the CNW in their appeal of the Hearing Examiner's Approval of the
Preliminary Plat Application.  Complete Summary Document

On August 6, 2007, the Woodinville City Council will consider in a closed record
proceeding the Hearing Examiner's recommendations regarding the proposed Wood
Trails (ZMA2004-053) and Montevallo (ZMA2004-94) rezones, as well as the
administrative appeals of the Wood Trails (PPA2004-054) and Montevallo (PPA2004093)
preliminary plat approvals. Prior to addressing the substantive merits of these
proposals at the August 6 proceeding, the City Council will formally disclose any prior
communications with proponents and opponents of the Wood Trails and Montevallo
projects as required by the appearance of fairness doctrine.

In order to facilitate and expedite the disclosure process, the City has compiled previous communications to and from Council Members regarding the Wood Trails and Montevallo projects.

On Wednesday, May 16, 2007, City of Woodinville Hearing Examiner pro tem Greg Smith issued his Findings, Conclusions and Decision regarding the preliminary plat applications and rezone requests for the proposed Wood Trails (ZMA2004-053 and PPA2004-054) and Montevallo (ZMA2004-094 and PPA2004-093) developments. The Hearing Examiner conditionally approved the preliminary plat applications and recommended approval of the applicant's rezone requests for both projects. The Hearing Examiner also approved a reduced density transfer of nine residential density credits from the Wood Trails project site to the Montevallo project site.

Pursuant to applicable regulations, the City will issue and distribute a formal Notice of Decision regarding each decision. Copies of the Hearing Examiner's decisions are available for inspection and copying at City Hall upon request, and may be downloaded from this website as indicated below:
