BI Public Hearing: 87 room hotel
January 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
A public hearing on the Winslow Hotel is now scheduled before the Hearing Examiner Thursday, Jan. 23 at 10 a.m. at the Council Chambers. This is a change from the previous schedule, which anticipated a public hearing next week (Dec. 19).
Earlier this week, the City received one State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) appeal related to the project. As a result, the schedule has been changed to allow that appeal to be heard by the Hearing Examiner at the Jan. 23 public hearing along with the project proposal.
Last month, the City of Bainbridge Island issued its SEPA determination on the Winslow Hotel project, located at 251 Winslow Way W. Click here to read the determination with conditions (see Notice of Mitigated Determination of Nonsignificance 112519). As previously noted, the Planning & Community Development Director’s recommendation to the Hearing Examiner may include additional proposed conditions that may be imposed if the project receives approval by the Hearing Examiner. The Director’s recommendation will be included in the staff report to the Hearing Examiner, which will be available at least one week before the hearing (now scheduled for Jan. 23).
The Hearing Examiner provides a written finding within 10 working days of the public hearing, unless a longer period is agreed upon by the Hearing Examiner and the applicant. The Hearing Examiner’s finding is the final decision of the City and does include an appeal period. Additional information about the Winslow Hotel project proposal is available on the City’s website.
