Point Ruston is giving an update each week at council meetings (regular and study sessions). Last Monday they noted these items:
• Stack Hill streets are expected to be paved within the next 10-14 days.
• Point Ruston is planning to request final plat approval for Stack Hill next month. This wilwl allow parcel numbers to be assigned by the Pierce County Assessor’s Office, and the property to be returned to the tax rolls.
From earlier discussions, we know Point Ruston has applied for the necessary changes so the Silver Cloud hotel development can proceed. A Memorandum of Understanding is scheduled for the next council meeting on this issue. It sounds like this will remove the formal application so individual council members can discuss the development with Point Ruston, while outlining a commitment to support the concept. All this is tied up with the state grant to update Ruston’s codes for this area (see the April 28th council meeting notes).
The project has permits for at least two homes on Stack Hill. The first house will be a model home. The first permit on the lower section has been issued by Tacoma. The floating sales center is open on Thea Foss Waterway. Stop in and check out the beautiful plans. All in all, little bits of progress.
