POULSBO — The City of Poulsbo will host a public meeting from 5-7 p.m., April 26 to discuss the proposed Vanaheimr Apartment Mixed Use Building, 367 NE Hostmark St.
The site is the former city police station.
The meeting will take place in the City Hall Council Chambers, 200 NE Moe St., Poulsbo. The applicant is Miles Yanick of Miles Yanick + Company.
According to the city’s written notice, the purpose of a neighborhood meeting is to provide a forum for interested individuals to meet with the applicant early in the review process. Doing so “provides an opportunity for meaningful dialogue between the applicant, citizens and city officials in order to identify and discuss any concerns.”
On March 21, the city conducted a pre-application meeting for the project and this is the next step in the proposal process. Plans call for the three-story structure to provide approximately 2,000 square feet of retail space on the main floor, with 25 apartments on the second and third floors. Thirty-five parking spaces would be provided to meet the needs of both the retail establishment and the residential units. The design also incorporates rooftop amenities for the building’s occupants.
Shoreline buffers and setbacks limit the building’s height, and restricts density and the kind of permitted land use. Approximately 2,575 square feet of the property will be dedicated to public access for water enjoyment.
Michael Brown of Sound West Holdings has an option to purchase the land in question, which is currently owned by the City of Poulsbo.
