Everett Riverfront Properties (Landfill Redevelopment)

Floyd|Snider provided technical, strategic, and management expertise to the City of Everett in support of their Riverfront Properties redevelopment efforts. Comprosed of a closed municipal landfill and a former pulp mill site, the Riverfront Properties total 280 acres along the Snohomish River southeast of the downtown business district. As the first step of a comprehensive process to prepare the sites for private development, Floyd|Snider, together with teaming partners, conducted additional investigations and produced a Development Considerations Report funded by a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Brownfields Assessment Demonstration Pilot Grant. 

Subsequent efforts involved negotiating a Cleanup Action Plan and Consent Decree with the Washington State Department of Ecology under the Model Toxics Control Act for the landfill/tire fire site. Floyd|Snider also produced a technical Brownfield Feasibility Study that evaluates environmental requirements for both existing and potential future redeveloped conditions. Successful negotiation of future development requirements in the absence of a redevelopment plan has defined the process, schedule, and liabilities associated with landfill redevelopment for potential developers. The Consent Decree was the first in Washington State to govern landfill redevelopment, and to define development construction requirements in the absence of a specific development plan.
