City Council Approves Contract for Engineering, Permitting of Meadowbrook Sewer ULID

News release image

On September 20th, 2022, the North Bend City Council approved a Motion authorizing a contract with Gray and Osborne (G&O) for engineering and permitting on the Meadowbrook Sewer Utility Local Improvement District (ULID) process. 

Next steps in the Meadowbrook Sewer ULID process include the preparation of engineering plans and permitting. When plans reach 60% completion, the project will undergo State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review, and following that, the permitting process and final engineering plans, which will include a cost estimate.

The motion follows an approved ordinance authorizing the formation of the Meadowbrook Sewer ULID, which was occurred at the August 2nd City Council meeting. This sewer collection and conveyance system project area includes most of the western portion of the City limits that is not currently served by sewer and relies on septic drain fields for properties whose soils can support it.

A public sewer system will provide individual property owners with development opportunities that better align with zoned uses in the Meadowbrook area, promoting a robust commercial tax base and less reliance on residential property taxes for the City’s operating budget.
