Moscow, Solomon don't appeal Hawkins' SEPA ruling

Deadline for formal appeal passes Thursday with no action
Staff report
Friday, January 26, 2007 - Page Updated at 08:37:43 AMThe city of Moscow and a local conservationist did not file an appeal of an environmental checklist for a proposed large-scale retail development on the Pullman-Moscow Highway just west of the Idaho border.
Whitman County Planner Mark Bordsen said Moscow and Mark Solomon, both of whom had submitted concerns about the Hawkins development, had until 4 p.m. Thursday to file an appeal against the county's ruling on the Hawkins development. His office did not receive anything from either party.
Bordsen said the Hawkins Companies’ State Environmental Policy Act checklist is now complete.
The next step for the proposed 600,000-square-foot retail center will be a public hearing on a conditional use permit. That hearing is tentatively scheduled for mid-February.
