(1) The goals and objectives of the project;
(2) Location including city or county, proximity to existing roads and other landmarks, and a vicinity map showing location of the proposed site(s);
(3) A statement of how the bank meets any watershed restoration needs and how its design and location are ecologically appropriate;
(4) The rationale for site selection addressing the considerations listed in WAC 173-700-303;
(5) The general need for the proposed bank project;
(6) General site map(s) that includes, but is not limited to:
(a) Total area of site;
(b) Location, size, and number of existing wetlands;
(c) Location of all streams, ponds, and other water features on or adjacent to the site;
(d) Location and type of all known water control features on or adjacent to the site; and
(e) Presence of rights of way, easements, or other encumbrances.
(7) A description of existing conditions of the proposed site(s) including, but not limited to:
(a) Land ownership;
(b) Local land use or zoning designation;

(g) Other habitat types present;
(h) Available information on water sources including surface water features, preliminary groundwater information, soil types, and vegetation;
(i) A preliminary analysis of functions provided by on-site wetlands;
(j) Adjacent land uses that might affect the bank's function;
(k) Site constraints, conflicts, or known risks that could affect bank development or function;
(l) Identification of all buildings, structures, and other built features that would remain on the site after construction; and
