The fire access path may be required by the City per our ongoing State Environmental Protection Act (SEPA) review. If the path is required, it will be used for emergencies only - not for deliveries, general access, etc. MICA does not propose to completely pave the fire access path, rather MICA proposes to use grasscrete for the portion of the path that is wider than the pedestrian walkway. It is a pervious solution with many aesthetic and environmental advantages.
