Proposal: Preliminary plat application to subdivide 4.5 acres into 17 single-family residential lots.

Roadways to be constructed include “Road A” which will run perpendicular to 133rd Ave. SE, “Road B” which will extend off of Road A, and two private access tracts, Tract E and Tract D, stemming off of Road A and Road B respectively. An emergency vehicle access tract will connect Road A to 132nd Ave. SE.
