DNS issued for sports club facilities ordinance

sports club King County's Department of Development and Environmental Services (DDES) has determined that the county's proposed Sports Club Facilities Ordinance will not affect the environment and has given it a determination of non-significance.
   Currently, sports clubs are allowed if they are neighborhood-based, part of a specific residential development, supervised, after-school/non-profit instructional or athletic programs for children.
   The proposed ordinance would amend the King County Code to remove the requirements that programs be neighborhood-based, after-school and for children only.
   The use would be expanded to allow community-based, supervised, non-profit programs for persons of all ages. The amendment would apply to unincorporated King County.
   Appeals of the DNS must be received by Dec. 6 at King County's Environmental Division: Attention SEPA.
