Urban cottages get council’s OK

Winslow is about to get a new neighborhood as the Ericksen Urban Cottages development has cleared the city council.

The Bainbridge Island City Council has given final approval, by unanimous vote, of the Ericksen Urban Cottages subdivision, paving the way for Winslow’s next housing development.

The council gave its initial approval of the Ericksen development in June 2012. Since then, the land slated for the cottages has been cleared and construction crews have been active on the site on the corner of Ericksen Avenue and Knechtel Way. The 1.08-acre property will be converted into 16 single-family residential lots.

The development is part of the city’s Housing Design Demonstration Projects, which encourage the building of sustainable and affordable housing.
