Buckley Council OKs plan for 65 new homes

The Glacier Meadows neighborhood will be located on Buckley’s north side, east of the Copperwynd development and north of Elk Ridge Elementary School.

Two new developments, one big and the other rather small, were recently approved by the Buckley City Council.

The action came during a regularly-scheduled, June 12 council session.

The larger of the proposals, a subdivision going by the name Glacier Meadows, has the potential to add 65 singly-family homes to Buckley’s ever-growing housing inventory. The other agenda item was a “short plat” request that turns a single parcel of land into four building lots.

Glacier Meadows is on Buckley’s north side, covering now-vacant ground immediately east of the Copperwynd development and north of Elk Ridge Elementary School. Residents of the 22-acre development will be able to use connecting streets into Copperwynd and onto River Avenue or use Sergeant Street to access Collins Road.

Infrastructure work is continuing and the city anticipates receiving building permits this summer.

Also approved June 12 was a request to turn approximately 2.5 acres on the south side of Ryan Road into four lots. The owners occupy the only home presently on the parcel and now have the opportunity to see additional homes built; the way the plat was configured would allow for additional lots to be added to the mix.

The small acreage sits directly across Ryan Road from the growing Perkins Prairie development and has Sergeant Street as its eastern boundary.
