Developed a waterfront site in a safe and sustainable way.
Cutting Through the Red Tape
Expertly obtained all necessary permits from regulatory agencies.
Commerce and conservation coexisting. CEMEX needed a new site for concrete/asphalt batch plant operations and soil remediation that was also a waterfront location to allow raw materials to be brought in via barge. Reid Middleton performed site planning, permitting, and civil engineering services for the redevelopment of the 54-acre former Weyerhaeuser Craft Mill site on the Snohomish River in north Everett. This project involved the design and permitting of a new pier as well as improvements to paving, water, sewer, and stormwater systems in the upland portion. Shoreline public access is also being provided via a new pedestrian trail and a section of the existing degraded waterfront is being restored to its natural beach state and maintained as a wildlife habitat. The project required a Shoreline Substantial Development permit and a Special Use Permit from the City of Everett, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Section 10 and Section 404 permits, and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Hydraulic Project Approval. The project resulted in a plan that perfectly met the client’s industrial needs but allowed the site to also be enjoyed by recreational users and wildlife.
