Another housing development OK’d for Semanski Street

33 homes are planned to be built along the busy road.

New homes are springing up all over Enumclaw, with Semanski Street being one of the hottest locations.

The east side of the arterial street has many homes springing to life and, during their March 26 meeting, members of the City Council gave their final blessing for another.

Getting the governmental nod this time around was the Semanski Farms subdivision, which divides nearly 10 acres of vacant land into 33 single-family lots. The parcel is served by the extension of two existing streets, Christianson Avenue and Olie Ann Avenue and will tie into existing McKinley Street.

The proposal has been in the works for some time, as the preliminary plat was approved by the City Council in February 2009. The building climate has improved greatly since the dark days of the nationwide economic recession and Enumclaw has seen the result.

The question facing the City Council last week was whether the developer had satisfied all requirements. Noting that streets and sidewalks had been installed, utilities were in place and all appropriate payments had been made, city staff recommended that the project be allowed to proceed. The council unanimously agreed.

On Feb. 12, the Enumclaw City Council had given final approval for the Semanski Estates housing subdivision. That proposal calls for turning 4.88 acres of vacant land into 16 lots for single-family housing. They will be built on a cul de sac that extends east off Semanski Street, south of Roosevelt Avenue.

Immediately south of Semanski Farms is Liberty Meadows, where construction is ongoing.
