WOODLAND — A 15-unit apartment complex could be built at the corner of Bozarth Avenue and Fifth Street if an application to build is approved by the city.
Woodland planning officials announced Tuesday that they are accepting comments about the proposed project until 5 p.m. March 23.
The new structure would be built just north of three existing apartment buildings off Bozarth Avenue, west of St. Philip Catholic Church, according to submitted plans. A shed and a gravel drive, accessible from Fifth Street, are located at the potential site today.
The plan includes combining two neighboring lots at 560 Bozarth Ave. The builder is asking for a boundary-line adjustment and a height variance.
Woodland Planner David Lukaczer said the proposed building would be 43½ feet tall, which is 8½ feet taller than the usual height limit in high-density residential zones. Lukaczer said city staff can process these “minor variances.”
The plans also include adding 16 parking stalls off Fifth Street, in addition to the 18 stalls already accessible from the Bozarth Avenue entrance.
Blueprints show that there are eight units in the two existing apartment buildings closest to Fifth Street. The existing apartment building closest to St. Philip church is not part of the updated plans.
Woodland officials say a review concluded that the proposed project would not significantly impact the environment.
The owner of the project’s land is a Vancouver-based company called Belcorp, and the building permit applicant is the contractor Windsor Engineers, which also has a location in Vancouver.
