The Federal Way City Council passed 6 – 1 on Tuesday the Comprehensive Plan amendment to realign the future 324th Street South.
This would change the current road direction to going straight to connect with Weyerhaeuser Way South instead of 32nd Avenue South.
The cost of this project is still undetermined, as is the cost of purchasing land from IRG to construct the road. Mayor Jim Ferrell previously told the Mirror this road construction is years away.
This decision comes after the public and some council members expressed concerns that DaVita seemed to have been given special treatment since this amendment was initiated in 2017 without council knowledge.
The original road alignment would have the road cutting through the property DaVita purchased to build a new office on.
Ferrell said he had his staff are working on the amendment to save the 1,000 jobs DaVita is said to be bringing to Federal Way.
