Great Changes Coming for New Home Construction within Sudden Valley!

The County Council has scheduled a review of our SVCA Stormwater Management and Phosphorus Mitigation Plan in May.  These new Sudden Valley’s policies and procedures for managing stormwater runoff and mitigating phosphorus for properties within its boundaries have been reviewed by the County and are ready for public review by the Council. This Plan provides Standard Details and worksheets for developing stormwater management systems for most new residential construction within the community’s boundaries. It is the intent that these details will be pre‐approved under the terms and conditions of a formal Memorandum of Agreement between SVCA and the County,   Tools provided in the plan may be used by Sudden Valley property owners in their residential stormwater management system design, which is then submitted with their building permit application package for County review.

The SVCA membership approved annual maintenance funding increase to support the Associations culverts and drains.  This annual effort, coupled with the new Stormwater Management and Phosphorus Mitigation Plan supports the stewardship of the watershed and environment, and protects our roads.

A free workshop on how to use the Workbook will be offered to property owners / builders.  Use of this workbook will lower the overall design and construction costs and streamline the County approval process.   Interested parties are asked to contact Sudden Valley (360-734-6430) to place their name onto the attendance list.  The Association would prefer to conduct the meeting at the earlier possible time slot available to largest majority of builders/ owners.
