Construction projects update in Maple Valley

The city of Maple Valley has a number of projects planned. The following is an update on projects around the city

Summit Park

There is a proposal to subdivide 23.38 acres into 126 lots for construction of single-family detached residences at Summit Park. The development site is bounded on the north by Southeast Kent-Kangley Road, on the west by residential development, on south by the new Tahoma High School campus and on the east by the Cedar to Green River Trail.

The land will be developed at a density of six units to the acre, and as proposed, meets R-6 development standards regarding maximum housing density, minimum lot width and minimum building widths. The recreation area requirement for Overlook at Summit Park is 54,810 square feet. The three recreation tracts provide 54,899 square feet of recreation space, meeting the city of Maple Valley standards. These tracts include amenities such as picnic tables, benches and children’s play toys.

On the east side of the land, proposed Road C is connected to the King County Cedar to Green River Trail right-of-way via a 15-feet-wide pedestrian pathway consisting of eight feet of paved trail with 3.5 feet of landscaping on each side.
