LAKE STEVENS, Wash. – A plan to open a new Costco warehouse is raising concerns for some in Snohomish County.

The site of the proposed store is at the intersection of State Route 9 and 20th Street Southeast in Lake Stevens.

It would be 170,000 square feet, with 850 parking spaces and a 30-pump gas station, according to the Herald.

Two new public roads would be built to help accommodate traffic.

During a public comment period, some expressed concerns about increased traffic, environmental impact and the location being near homes.

A public meeting concerning the store is being held Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Lake Stevens Fire Department Conference Center, 10518 18th St. SE.

Representatives from Lake Stevens and Costco are expected to attend.
