“Walsh Hills” subdivision approved to go ahead
SNOHOMISH — The city announced last week that the planning department approved D.R. Horton’s site development permit toward a 110 single-family subdivision within 20 acres along Terrace Avenue.
It would replace the grounds of the former Delta Rehabilitation Center (Snohomish Chalet) sold by the Walsh family. The brain-injury center closed in 2019.
“Site work has started and is expected to be complete by late summer of 2022 when home construction is expected to start,” D.R. Horton Seattle President Kevin Capuzzi said by email. The homes could be available for purchase by late fall 2022, he said.
Capuzzi noted the “community has not yet been named.”
The development’s moniker so far has been Walsh Hills.
The city said in its announcement that “work in the street will include connecting to water and sanitary sewer mains in the street immediately adjacent to the property. Other street work will involve the installation of a storm sewer line extending to the south on Terrace Avenue connecting to existing facilities at 16th Street.”
A large tree at the intersection of Terrace and 16th Street will be removed, the city said in an announcement. Removing the tree could give the side-benefit of better visibility, the city said.
A neighbor took the development to court with a land-use petition earlier this year. A Snohomish County Superior Court judge denied the petition July 29 with the determination that the city met code when it approved the project.
The city said people with questions about site preparation can contact either Senior Engineering Technician Koi Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 425-330-9055 or Senior Utilities Engineer Andy Sics at email@example.com or by calling 360-282-3174.
