At issue was whether or not SK Northwest has to include a bike/ped trail along their proposed riverfront development.
According to the BTA, SK’s most recent appeal was shot down because it,
“failed to include the required greenway trail and included plans to build within the greenway setback.”
But the BTA’s Executive Director Evan Manvel says Friday’s decision is especially significant because,
“Even though their first application was denied, the decision found the city’s trail requirement to be unconstitutional. Now, with their second application the hearings officer found the trail to be constitutional and the city’s trail requirement was upheld.”
