Winslow Hotel applicant withdraws project revisions

Winslow Hotel Update

The Winslow Hotel project applicant has withdrawn project revisions that required a new public comment period and Planning Commission public meeting.

On Oct. 9, the applicant submitted a revision to the site plan and design review and conditional use permit applications to add 11 employee housing units, increase a vegetative buffer along the east side of the project and add an additional 11 parking spaces. On Monday, Nov. 4, the applicant requested to withdraw the revisions and move forward with the prior proposal.

The Winslow Hotel project proposal, located at 251 Winslow Way W, includes an 87-room hotel with banquet and meeting rooms, restaurant and bar, and spa. There is a landscaped courtyard, reflecting pond and bandshell, and both under-building and surface parking totaling 136 spaces.

In July, the Planning Commission unanimously recommended denial of the Major Conditional Use Permit (CUP) and Major Site Plan and Design Review (SPR) for the Winslow Hotel project due, in part, to conflicts with the City's Comprehensive Plan and Winslow Master Plan goals and policies.

The application materials, staff report, and the recommendation of the Planning Commission will be reviewed by Planning & Community Development Director Heather Wright for a recommendation. The project proposal also requires a State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) threshold determination before going to the Hearing Examiner for a final decision. The hearing date will be shared once it’s scheduled.

The public comment period for the Oct. 9 proposed revisions is now closed due to the applicant’s withdrawal. The City will not be considering the Oct. 9 proposed revisions in its final review.

A new sign, reflecting the applicant’s retracted revisions, was added to the project proposal site.
