Sunset Area EIS

While with ICF and continuing at BERK, Lisa Grueter served as the EIS lead to produce a site specific analysis of the Sunset Terrace property redevelopment and a programmatic analysis of a larger neighborhood planned action area for the City of Renton and Renton Housing Authority. The agencies are proposing revitalization of the Sunset Area Community through redevelopment of the Sunset Terrace public housing complex and vicinity, Sunset Boulevard improvements, a drainage master plan, a new library, park improvements, and water and sewer improvements. These proposals, together with anticipated private neighborhood investment, were studied in the EIS completed in June 2011. Lisa was responsible for the overall document contents and prepared the alternatives description and a planned action ordinance as well as a record of decision. Lisa coordinated the work of multiple authors at ICF and other firms. This project was awarded the 2013 Smart Communities Award by Governor Jay Inslee.
