Snohomish County Coalition for Higher Education
Petition Background (Preamble):
The Legislature stipulated that a new University of Washington branch campus will be located in the Snohomish-Island-Skagit County region, with site determination beginning immediately.
Site determination is conducted by NBBJ of Seattle, an unbiased independent agency working with state and university officials.
Sites are evaluated on a variety of criteria, including community support, compliance with GMA, evaluation of a master business plan and available land/infrastructure.
Initially, over 80 sites were submitted for consideration, including one site submitted by the Snohomish County Coalition for Higher Education (SCCHE).
The SCCHE site proposal was jointly submitted by the mayors of Lake Stevens and Snohomish with the support of Monroe and Granite Falls. The SCCHE site consists of over 100 contiguous undeveloped acres located inside the City of Lake Stevens' Urban Growth Area along 20th Street SE. The site offers flat, clean land unimpeded by major geographical or environmental features. The site is located between the Cities of Lake Stevens and Snohomish and is about two miles from downtown Everett.
