Official notice: UW determination of non-significance adoption of existing document

Description of Proposal: The UW Bothell Husky Village Redevelopment project is being proposed in Development Area D of the campus to provide residence halls, apartments and dining, gathering and office space. The four proposed buildings are anticipated to be approximately 300,000 gross square feet (GSF). Demolition of the existing Husky Village buildings will result in a reduction of 74,152 existing GSF. Sound Transit, as part of the ST3 bus rapid transit program, will be adding a new bus stop in front of the project on Beardslee Boulevard by 2024.

Location of proposal: The project site is at the north end of the campus adjacent to Beardslee Boulevard.

Title of document being adopted: 2017 UW Bothell and Cascadia College Campus Master Plan Final Environmental Impact Statement

As lead agency, we have identified and adopted this document as being appropriate for this proposal after independent review. This proposal and site is consistent with the Campus Master Plan. It has been determined that it does not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. An environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c). This decision was made after adoption of the 2017 UW Bothell and Cascadia College Campus Master Plan EIS for the project and preparation and review of a SEPA consistency checklist.

This determination of non-significance is issued under WAC 197-11-340(2). https://facilities.uw.edu/committees/sepa
