Date Application was Determined Technically Complete: November 30, 2015

Date of Complete Application:

December 11, 2015

Description of Proposed Project: The proposed project has been modified since its initial submittal
in November 2015. The current proposal is for a 107 unit assisted living facility and 24 unit
independent living apartment units for a total of 131 new units, proposed at the final 2.2 acres
undeveloped portion of the Poulsbo Place Master Plan area. In order for the assisted living and
independent living apartments to be allowed as proposed, amendments to the Poulsbo Place
Redevelopment Master Plan must be adopted by the City Council.
Specifically, the details of the assisted living, independent living apartment units, and supporting
parking are as follows:
107 assisted living units at 105,000 square feet
24 independent living units at 25,250 square feet
4,250 square feet of retail commercial
145 parking spaces located in an underbuilding parking garage at 55,050 square feet
TOTAL proposed building square footage: 189,550 square feet
Urban plazas designed within sidewalk improvements: 6,200 square feet

Overall site landscaping: 19,129 square feet

Proposed building heights range from 10 at the lowest to 53 at the highest. The building is
comprised of four wings, and the average building height per wing is as proposed:
Wing A (northern segment, near Sunset/Jensen intersection): 25.68 in height
Wing B (eastern segment, 3rd Avenue): 40.63 in height
Wing C (southern segment, north of post office): 42.34 in height
Wing D (eastern segment, behind post office): 41.58 in height
Amendments to the Poulsbo Place Redevelopment Master Plan proposed by the applicant at this
time include:

Height Limitation: The Master Plan identifies a maximum 30 building height; the
proposed building in order to accommodate the proposed number of units and
underbuilding parking, proposes to increase the height to an average 45 for the portions of
the building where the underbuilding parking garage is to be located, and 35 for the
portion of the building where no parking garage is to be located.


Consider Assisted Living as Commercial Use: Of the remaining 2 acres left of the
Poulsbo Place Redevelopment Master Plan area, 1.14 acre of it is zoned commercial, and
under the master plan, was intended for retail, office, community entertainment, restaurants
and hotel/conference center. The applicant is requesting the City Council confirm the
proposed assisted living use as consistent with the master plans intent and purpose of
the commercial component.


3rd Floor Stepback Requirement: The Citys zoning ordinance requires for building
walls over 30 in height, to have a stepback of minimum of 8 on the floors above the
30. The applicant is requesting in the locations where their proposed building design
does not meet that requirement, that top floors occupying a dormer be considered an
alternative to the stepback requirement.


Lot Coverage: The applicant is requesting an amendment to the Master Plan establishing an
allowable building lot coverage of up to 75% of the subject site.
