Pursuant to WAC 197-11-350(3), the proposal has been clarified, changed, and conditioned to include necessary mitigation measures to avoid, minimize or compensate for probable significant impacts. An environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030 (2) (c). This decision was made after review of a completed environmental checklist and other information on file with the lead agency. This information is available to the public on request. However, we have identified impacts by the proposed project that requires mitigation. In addition to the requirement that the development must comply with all City of Arlington zoning and development regulations, the following conditions of approval of the permit decision apply: (B)(1) Earth: In order to mitigate for potential earth impacts, the Applicant shall implement Best Management Practices per Department of Ecology for Stormwater Pollution Prevention and TESC Controls to prevent erosion during and after construction. A construction Stormwater General Permit is required through the Department of Ecology. (B)(2) Air: In order to mitigate for potential air impacts, the Applicant shall implement dust control measures to reduce fugitive dust emissions during construction. A Construction Management Plan shall be submitted to the City prior to commencement of construction to ensure these measures. Construction equipment emissions shall comply with all State and Federal regulations for emissions. (B)(3)(b) Ground Water: In order to mitigate for potential impacts to ground water the Applicant shall employ best design practices meeting the current D.O.E Stormwater Manual. (B)(3)(c) Water Runoff: In order to mitigate for potential impacts to water runoff the Applicant shall follow the current edition of the Department of Ecology's Stormwater Management Manual for Western Washington and Best Management Practices used to protect groundwater. All onsite stormwater will be collected, treated, and detained or infiltrated to match preexisting runoff conditions on site. (B)(6) Energy: The project will comply with the latest Washington State Energy Code requirements.

A spill prevention plan shall be in place according to local, State and Federal policies. (B)(7)(b) Noise: The applicant shall comply with the City of Arlington noise standards found in AMC 9.20.060.

Noise from light vehicle traffic will be generated during business hours at project completion. (B)(12)(c) Recreation: The applicant shall not impact the use of the Airport Trail and maintain proper maintenance and access to the trail during construction. DISCLAIMER: The determination that an environmental impact statement does not have to be filed does not mean there will be no adverse environmental impacts. The City of Arlington codes governing noise control, land use performance standards, construction and improvements of roads, off site road improvement obligations, drainage control, traffic, school, park, stormwater, and utility mitigations, fire protection; and building practices will provide substantial mitigation of the aforementioned impacts. The issuance of this MDNS should not be interpreted as acceptance or approval of this proposal as presented. The City of Arlington reserves the right to deny or approve said proposal subject to conditions if it is determined to be in the best interest of the city and/or necessary for the general health, safety, and welfare of the public to do so.
